After seeing Hye-rin (Hwang Sin-Hye) in a play, Young-min (Ahn Sung-kee) falls completely in love with her. He sends fruits, chocolate, flowers to hear to every play she does, but his shyness makes almost impossible for him to ask her out. On a Christmas eve he is decided to make the big movement, but Hye-rin has other plans.
While the story may not be original at all, the movie is enjoyable and shows how the korean cinema was back in the 80-90's before the new wave of the korean cinema. The only problem I see, is that 75% of the movie is just about the Young-min chasing Hye-rin while the in last 30 minutes "everything" happens and in a fast way. Despite the over-dramatic resolution, the movie gives you a "feeling good" vibe. Besides is a good opportunity to watch one of Sung-kee's oldest available movies. A movie recommended to all the ones who wants to experience how the korean cinema was before the boom of the 00's.
