STORY

200501130902205103310qe.jpg

Sandglass follows its three main characters from early adolescence to full adulthood, from the 1960s to the 1980s. Park Tae-soo (played by Choi Min-su) is a charismatic gangster, adored by the men with whom he breaks up opposition-party meetings. Flashbacks tell us that in high school Tae-soo was a fighter and leader, already wooed by local toughs and politicians. He briefly resisted his destiny under the influence of his close friend Kang Woo-suk. Woo-suk tutored Tae-soo and encouraged him to think about college, much to the delight of Tae-soo's widowed mother. But when Tae-soo was rejected by military college because his late father had been a Communist guerilla, he abandoned himself to a gangster's life.

Woo-suk (Park Sang-won) went on to law school, his goal since childhood. As he prepares for the bar exam, Woo-suk keeps aloof from student activism or anything else that might deflect him from his goal. But he's impressed by a bold young woman, Yoon Hye-rin (Ko Hyun-jung) who edits the Student Association's newspaper. They become friends. Flashbacks show us that Hye-rin is the daughter of a rich and powerful casino owner with ties to the highest levels of the Park Jeong-hee regime. A devoted bodyguard, Baek Jae Hee (Lee Jung-jae), watches over her in her student lodgings and her increasingly dangerous activism. By chance, Woo-suk once again meets Tae-soo, who is also impressed by Hye-rin. Woo-suk (who doesn't know why Tae-soo gave up his academic dreams) is disappointed to learn that his old friend is still on the wrong side of the law. When I become a prosecutor, Woo-suk warns him, I might have to prosecute you....

The most spectacular segment of the series is its recreation of the Gwangju uprising of 1980, which takes up most of two episodes. Tae-soo visits a former subordinate who moved back to Gwangju, and gets caught up in the resistance when government troops are sent in to crush the democratic protests there. He doesn't know that Woo-suk joined the army just in time to be deployed at Gwangju. Hye-rin has escaped arrest and has fled Seoul for the countryside. Archival video footage adds power and authenticity to the program's restaging of the rebellion.

Two-thirds of the series still lies ahead after Gwangju, but Sandglass (as its title implies) is really about time, and about Koreans' struggle to come to terms with their history. Tae-soo, Woo-suk, and Hye-rin must overcome their suffering and pursue their aims and destinies, which they do with great energy. At times I did get tired of Hye-rin's Poor Little Rich Girl routine, especially since her impulsive decisions tend to blow up in other people's faces, not hers. And Woo-suk is such a Boy Scout -- clean, thrifty, brave, reverent, blind to the feelings of the people nearest to him, and prone to give up when at first he doesn't succeed. Only Tae-soo, perhaps because he knows he's damned, seems to know who he is from the beginning, doggedly pursuing what he wants over all obstacles.

WOW Jahye!

Great job on organising those links! This is one of the epic Korean dramas that I never got around to watching fully. I watched about 3(?) episodes but had to stop because of technical problems so now I can continue again ^_^ Thanks! And I agree... it ain't a Kdrama forum without a Sandglass thread!

This has been so talked about... But when I watch I try to watch it as if I were watching it back in 1995... because otherwise, I think alot of the splendour and the pomp of this series would've been lost due to how much more polished Kdramas have become nowadays.

Wat a coincidence! Just finished this drama 2 nights ago....

mmmm...I don't have much too say as I don't want to spoil this...

but just a warning...there are some violence scenes which sometimes I just had to skipped it trough...

and being a classic drama, some parts bore me a little, but trough the last few episodes it gets a bit better.

If you expect romance....not much here either...

Anyway, it's a great drama but it's something that I just need to watch once.... B)

Oh I LOVE this drama. If I remember correctly there used to be a 20+pages thread of great insightful discussion on Sandglass before the big crash. I watched the whole thing in 3 days and it left me with an incredible sadness (and swollen eyes), but also consolation by how far the country has come since. I can't imagine what life was like for those people and how many families it has destroyed during the Gwangju times. A poster from soompi (weird I suddenly recall the name - touta) put together a great site for the drama with interesting write-ups about the history and music, unfortunately I think it's now defunct.
