Nothing you haven't seen before
13 January 2008 | by (Basque Country) – See all my reviews

Chang-shik is a Psychology graduate who is too lazy to find a job and has been living with his brother and his wife for two years. Mi-yeong, is an actress wannabe who always fails in the castings, so she helps her mother to run the family videostore. They don't get on well since Chang-shik rarely returns the videos on time and don't want to pay the fines. One night, they meet completely by chance and are the witness of a hit and run accident. Thinking of the money they could get for the reward they decide to go to the police to declare. Soon, the things will start to get complicated.

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.
