Be strong, Korean comedy fans
28 June 2005 | by (Oriental State of Mind) – See all my reviews

There seems to be a dead end of arguments between some people who tend to slam certain Korean comedies for not reaching their bars of expectations and other people who are cutting those movies some slack for their understandably heavy task of reaching the heights of success after movies like My Sassy Girl and My Wife is a Gangster. In the midst of all these opinions it becomes pretty hard to guess which movies are worth the viewing time and which aren't.

This is one of the few movies that neither got the rave reviews nor the critique of total aggravation, so I went in there expecting a painless ride with light drama and comedy. The viewing experience was very much painless. The film takes a slow start but not in a way of losing your interest, mainly because you can't wait for wifey to finally get on her saving rampage. There are quite a few nice moments of humor between the husband and the wife, but it ultimately comes down to Geum-sun to shine as an ass kicking mom. The female lead is played by Du-na Bae who I was very eager to see after Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. She does a fine job of expressing emotions while not completely over-playing and forcing her character.

So it takes about 45 minutes for the action to get rolling, but those who expect an array of over the top sequences shouldn't expect too much since there is more running done here than actual fighting. With that said, those 45 minutes could have been filled with funnier gags, but at least they weren't annoying gags.

Thankfully there were some outside parties introduced in the path of Geum-sun to create a much needed conflict, but surprisingly they weren't utilized to their utmost capacity. Story with two warring gangs and a silent man following the wife didn't achieve the climax and at the end they essentially missed their marks after the long and promising build up.

It's hard to bash this film since in its mediocrity it was able to express itself without tiring clichés or brain dead humor. However those who have been on a streak of disappointing Korean comedies should perhaps look elsewhere as this film lacks that certain charm and innovation that true winning Korean comedies do.

For what its worth, I found more satisfaction of husband and wife interaction in My Little Bride than I did in this film, then again the husband here was inebriated for the most part of the film, so it isn't a fair comparison.
