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

In 2010 a memorial has been made round of the tree which The Girl and Kyun-woo buries a time capsule under it. The memorial is called Time Capsule Park, and it's made because of the 10th anniversary of the film. The exact coordinates of Time Capsule Park are (37° 12' 05.60" N, 128° 41' 19.50" E). See more »
When the last ball hits Kyun-woo's face, the cameraman's reflection is visible in the glass behind him. See more »
This is one of those movies that makes you think about it for hours after you have seen it(whether the first or the fifth time). The reason being that it is funny, witty and enthralling while still maintaining the charisma of a great Korean romantic movie.
You will undoubtedly hate Ji-Hyun Jun for the better half of the film but by the end, she will be one of the most enchanting woman you ever saw (Besides Audrey Hepburn off-course). Tae-Hyun Cha plays the role of a difident sort nice guy but with good acting and sound expressions.
Overall, I would give this a 10/10. Don't forget to read the book though, its a lot funnier and accurate.
