"Remember when all you had to give me was a flower?" Sun from Lost
The Loves of Lost - or Lost as a Romance Novel
First up is Jin and Sun.
A plot device used sometimes in romance novels is that of the hero and heroine being from opposite sides of the track (so to speak) Jin is the son of the poor fisherman seeped in Korean tradition and Sun is the daughter of a rich Korean mob boss. Star-crossed lovers who had many problems but in the end they were meant to be together.
I know they are people who thought Jin should have left Sun to drown because of their daughter back home, but there is another school of thought who think they were the perfect parents because they put their marriage first. When the daughter is grown she will realize she came from a love more powerful than life.
I think the important lesson of Lost is that when we find each other we are no longer lost.
I cried during this scene made all the more powerful by the choice of music that not only tugs at the heartstrings but stirs the soul.
