Seeking Vincent In Seoul
24 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of store clerk Hyn-chae (Bae Doo Na, in a particularly good performance), who reads a note in an art book she borrows from the library from "Vincent". She believes that the note is meant for her, as well as the subsequent notes in other art books in the library. Dong-Ba, played by Kim Nam Jin, is someone she knew way before this, a train operator who likes her and kind of hangs on to her. She is, for a while, annoyed at him and her co-worker Miran even makes a play for him. He's a nice guy, but the notes Hyn-chae is reading make her looking for true love more idealistic, so she doesn't take him too seriously. Dong-ba doesn't give up. The key is whether Hyun-Chae will truly find Vincent. In style, this film reminds me of the film "Amelie" starring Audrey Tautou. Basically, both stories are about single young women in large cities looking for a man. In this case, Hyun-Chae is more the pursued. I like this film a lot, its a nice romantic comedy, it has some nice little twists to it and it looks great on screen, there was much attention paid to cinematography. Its a great date movie. Females will like it more than males, but it sucked me in. I recommend it pretty highly.
