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

The name Kyun-woo comes from the Chinese story of Qi Xi (Chilseok in Korean), when the Cowherd (Gyeon-wu) and and the Weaver Girl (Jiknyeo) of the heavens are united for only one night every year. See more »

[after Kyun-woo reads one of The Girl's screenplays]
They have to kiss in the end.
This isn't a melodrama. It's an action movie.
You don't know movies. Koreans like melodramas.
Know what novel touched us when we were teenagers? 'Shower' by Hwang Sun-won. It shaped our people's sensibility in their teens. Koreans like sad movies all because of 'Shower.'
'Shower'? What's sad about it?
It's sad when she asked to be buried in the clothes reminiscent of her love. I couldn't sleep for one week.

This is my afterword" maybe it's written more for myself, but please don't mind it and my lack in English too.
When watching movies we rarely know what to wait from them and the least we wait the film to affect us so hard that suddenly a completely new dimension appears to us, that the movie will make us to look on things and life from a different viewpoint, will make you to remember forgotten things. But movies like that exist, and this is one of them .
Thinking about this film I start to consider what the movie makers really want to achieve creating films and what is the task for a movie. Is it a picture movie with good cameraman's work, good acting , story or impressive special effects? These things are important ,but in my opinion, in a good movie the main is the message of it. I don't know if it is the director, the scriptwriter or the crew together who made this movie to touch the viewer, made him to look with a different look, who worked to make this film to deliver the message as it is, but I can say that they have achieved their aim.
This movie is humane. It's message and characters are humane. It has no meaning if the end of the movie is happy or sad - there is joy and pain both in it, because that's exactly how the life is.
I liked this movie. But it is impossible for me to rate it the same it's not possible for me to rate my own life.
This movie touched me. I hope that many others too.
