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>

Worth watching it
29 March 2005 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I watched this film by mistake - I simply didn't ender the right saloon, but I don't sorry for that at all. Why you should watch it?

  • it surely is different from the other films that you've watched


lately

  • the actors are young and they love playing, not like the spoiled


Hollywood "wunderkinds"

  • it's funny




  • it's realistic /with real emotions and problems of the young people -


no matter whether they are in Asia, Europe, or America/

  • at least for this short time, you can feel something of the culture.


I am sure, that you won't find the time for watching the movie lost and won't regret it, like I didn't.
