Great romance!
3 August 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This was the first korean movie I ever saw and I admit I loved it at that time. For once it was fitting my own situation quite perfectly... I found my match through the internet and she sent me that movie. In Germany they bought the rights and made a (bad - like most remakes see Nikita or three man and a baby) "copy" of it. When "You've got Mail" came out I only thought that the American one was a poor and boring remake of that lovely and romantic piece of art that "The Contact" is.
