Quotes:
[after Kyun-woo reads one of The Girl's screenplays]
Kyun-woo:They have to kiss in the end.
The Girl:This isn't a melodrama. It's an action movie.
Kyun-woo:You don't know movies. Koreans like melodramas.
The Girl:Why?
Kyun-woo: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.'
The Girl:'Shower'? What's sad about it?
Kyun-woo:It's sad when she asked to be buried in the clothes reminiscent of her love. I couldn't sleep for one week.
The Girl:The ending sucks. Gotta change it.

Funny Stuff!, 9 September 2004
Author: MusicalAnime from USA

I saw this movie with my girlfriend. I don't think we stopped laughing at it for a bit. I think this is one of the funniest movies ever. Everything from it made me feel happy. This has about the most well defined characters you'll ever see on film that are true to how they really are. I enjoyed this film so much. The girl was really cute, and she was mean and she was sweet. The guy wanted a girl and all he ever really found was this girl who was actually a guy. Then the movie got really sad. I couldn't believe why the girl was so sad, but that part made me cry. It ended up being a quest on trying to find out what true love is. Letting go is a really hard thing, but letting go of something else you've found when you find out how dear that really is to you can mean the entire world in the end. I love this movie... :)
