A child is found in the room of a deceased colleague. But something is a bit strange. There is no answer even when called, and the body is silent. At first, I thought she was hiding her face, not her mother. Then I found out that the child has a disability that can neither see nor hear.

The movie ‘You’re So Precious to Me’ depicts the journey of an immature adult Jae-sik (Jin-goo) to realize the meaning and happiness of life that he had never known before through the deaf child Hye-eun (Jung Seo-yeon), a deaf child he met by chance while chasing money.
The film is worth seeing for the first time in Korea to use the subject of hearing and visual impairments. Through the character of Eun-hyeung, the daily life of the visually impaired is reflected in detail.
If you can’t see it, you can express it in words, and if you can’t hear it, you can communicate in sign language or writing, but grace is not. You have to feel and realize it only through the sense of touch and smell that is transmitted to your fingertips.
At first, they feel unfamiliar with each other, but the longer they spend together, the more Jaesik understands the pain of grace, and the grace that has built up walls gradually comes to depend on Jaesik.
The content is not heavy just because it is a subject of disability.
The appearance of Jae-sik playing the role of Eun-eun’s fake father and the time the two spend together in order to chase money, but go to the countryside, deliver small fun and warm emotions.
The scenes of giving the letters directly to Eun-hye, who has to learn the letters with her fingertips, frosting the watermelon, walking and running in the rain, and rolling around on the ground make me smile.
