Storyline

Based on a series of true stories posted by Ho-sik Kim on the Internet describing his relationship with his girlfriend. These were later transformed into a best-selling book and the movie follows the book closely. It describes the meeting of Kyun-woo (Cha) and an unnamed girl. Kyun-woo is shamed into assisting the girl because the other passengers mistakenly think she is his girlfriend. Once he helps her, Kyun-woo develops a deep sense of responsibility for her which enables him to tolerate (somehow) the girl's abuses. Written by Thomas Giammarco <giammarcoken@hanmail.net>

wanna die? (my first korean movie)
31 October 2004 | by (philippines) – See all my reviews

I don't know how many times i have watched the movie, because i like the story very much. Its like the story of my classmate and I in my university (because she never become my girlfriend thats why she's just my friend). They have the same traits with the girl in the movie. Thats why I called her sassy girl. First I never expected to like the movie. but when I saw it I cannot help myself to watch it everyday. I bought a copy for myself for me to review the movie everyday... I cried when Gyun Woo gave her blind date 10 rules and the theme song starts to play. This is one of the part that I like most. second was when she played the piano and Gyun Woo gave her a rose. I like the piano piece very much..

So watch the movie and see for yourself the hilarious comedy in korean movie history.
