This first teaser trailer for “The Preparation” is positively heart-warming. Go Doo-shim and Kim Sung-kyun have struck up a tight-knit relationship as mother and son. Kim Sung-kyun may be playing a man with intellectual disabilities, but to me they just look like a loving family. The thread of sadness pulling the heart strings is made of the sad truth that Go Doo-shim is preparing her son to live without her because she has a terminal diagnosis. But that isn’t made very apparent in this trailer. Instead, we see love.
-Yours, Lisa, who knows that love without judgement can support one through the best and worst of times
