Like the title says, this movie is nothing you haven't seen before, especially if you are a fan of the Korean cinema. The movie follows the typicals points of the Korean romantic-comedies, here we have the rude girl, the weak boy, some unexpected events and of course, a scene in a motel room. It even has the most common defect on the modern Korean cinema, because the film last too much, in 100 minutes they could have told the same and make the movie more entertaining. Also, the story is quite predictable, if you have seen any of the romantic-comedies that have invaded the Korean scene on the late years, you will easily know how it ends. So...why a 6? Well, I don't know, it has some funny moments, Kim Sun-ah is on it...and maybe the fact that I haven't seen any Korean romantic-comedy in a while. Anyways, the hardcore fans of this type of films won't be disappointed.
By the way, watch the credits! One part of the story is solved there.
