For Eternal Hearts (Hangul별빛 속으로; RRByeolbit Sogeuro) is a 2007 South Korean film.


College professor Su-young recounts to his class the tale of his first love. As a student in the 1980s, he meets a wild and eccentric girl who he names "Pippi", and is crushed when she later jumps to her death from a window. But soon after she magically reappears, and his life becomes increasingly surreal and bizarre.



For Eternal Hearts premiered as the opening film of the 11th Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival, held from July 12–21, 2007.[1][2] From August 9, 2007 it was given a limited theatrical release in South Korea at independent theatre chain Spongehouse,[1] where it received a total of 6,724 admissions nationwide and grossed (as of September 16, 2007) US$45,398.[3][4] The film was later invited to the "Winds of Asia" category of the Tokyo International Film Festival, which opened on October 20, 2007.[5]
