Because I Love You (사랑하기 때문에) (2017)

It is no secret for people around me that I am a huge fan of Cha Tae Hyun (차태현). I like him for his personality but I am obsessed with him because of his laughter. Never in my life I would think that I can fancy someone just because of his/her laughter but Cha Tae Hyun did just that. I even have my own hashtag for Cha Tae Hyun #chataehyunmydreamnampyeon that I used when I went to South Korea last year.

So, it was no-brainer for me to watch one of his latest movies; Because I Love You (사랑하기 때문에). Anything that can help me with my fix of Cha Tae Hyun, right? And boy did I glad that I picked up this movie :)

Snippet of the movie (based on few of my readings)
Because I Love You is about Lee Hyeong (Cha Tae Hyun) who becomes a spirit after an accident and starts entering the bodies of several different people struggling with love. As he enters several bodies, he gets to experience love at all ages; from the flaming youth, to middle-aged enlightenment, to an older couple who have years of strong love behind them. While possessing the bodies, he acts as a Cupid who helps to remind the person of what it means to love.

My thoughts
This movie screams Cha Tae Hyun so much! You will know what I mean by that if you have watched any Cha Tae Hyun's movies. It was a simple and enjoyable movie yet very heartwarming. I laughed, I giggled, and I cried to my heart content while watching this movie. It was such an emotional roller coaster ride for me. I did not expect it to be like this because for the good first half of the movie, it was funny and humorous. Then, the emotions changed for the later half. I especially bawled my eyes out when the older couple appeared and when Lee Hyeong tried to conclude his own story. The only thing that I find it regretful was each story in this movie felt too short. I just wish each story had a tad in-depth background story. Other than that, I'm good!

Additionally, I particularly love this movie so much because they use Because I Love You by Yoo Jae Ha. This movie is actually a tribute to Yoo Jae Ha. The movie's name comes from Yoo Jae Ha's hit song; Because I Love You which happens to be one of my favourite songs too. If you read my previous post; Songs To Listen To When You Work Graveyard Shifts, you can see Because I Love You (though I put Heaven's version) was on the top of the list.

Anyway, I highly recommend this movie if you need something that will make you feel good or if you are in need of heartwarming dosage in your life :)

p.s: Please prepare a box of tissue too as you may cry while watching this movie.

Update: I have included the trailer of this movie so that you can have a better sense of this movie.


  1. BV dah tengok movie nie awal tahun rasanya. masa tu belum kenal sangat cha tae hyun (sbb masa tak terjebak lagi dgn 2days1night) entah kenapa rasa movie nie slow paced, tapi i did enjoy it sebab lawak gila masa rasuk tubuh macam2 jenis orang. :D

    baru tau lak nama movie nie dr lagu :3

    1. Slow paced ke? For me, dia macam quite fast juga sebab tiba-tiba je dah habis cerita satu couple. Yes, dia memang lawak gila bila dia rasuk macam-macam jenis orang tu. I laughed so hard! :D

      I was surprised bila lagu tu main dalam movie tu. Then, I connected the dot; between the song and the movie title. Lepas tu, masa credit, dia cakap cerita ni a tribute to Yoo Jae Ha, so I figured :)

    2. masa tu first time tengok, rasa slow sebab dah hujung2 baru tahu love story dia dengan si gadis penyanyi tu and hujung2 baru dapat relate kenapa dia excident. hahahhaha tapi memang lawak la and main ngan emosi jugak movie nie. :D

      rasanya kena tengok lagi nie hehhee :3

    3. Oh, sebab tu ke BV rasa slow. No wonder. I think it was a nice touch for them to put that scene last. Barulah rasa macam "Oh, sebab tu ke dia rasuk semua badan-badan tu?" And I think it just fitting for his story to be the last one to be concluded :)

  2. Ni cerita baru ea? I am still trying to find any online streaming for this :D The story line looks very interesting. I think there is a similar (but not that similar) movie when a body change appearance every single day. :D and he can experience how it feels to be in different age everyday.

    Love Cha Tae Hyun as well! especially when he's in 2D1N. But my hashtag will be #songilkookmydreamnampyeon hahaha

    1. I think it is quite new. I think it was released early this year. I think I know what movie you are talking about. Have not watch it yet but plan to watch it once I get the mood.

      I love Cha Tae Hyun so much in 2 Days 1 Night too! Honestly, I managed to get through a good numbers of boring episodes because of his laughter. Hahaha :D

      And yes, I am very much aware that #songilkookisyourdreamnampeyon. Hehehehe :D

    2. Oppps, before I forget, you can try Viki if you want to watch the movie. But, I am not so sure if it is licensed in Malaysia. Otherwise, you can try various free streaming websites :)

    3. BV selalu guna website kissasian untuk download kdrama atau movie2 dari asia :D

    4. Thanks for sharing, BV. Selalu juga guna kissasian especially bila tak jumpa dekat streaming websites yang lain :)
