The scrolling CNN news bar has errors in it: while the "War in Somewhere" title might just be an in joke, not a goof, in the scrolling subtext, words like "look" and "initially" are also misspelled. See more »
This movie tries very hard to insert comedic elements at rather awkward moments throughout its duration, and the end result is intermittent success but a general failure.
The movie is especially slow in the beginning and attempts to solicit cheap laughs.
However, one of the strangest issues here is how Moon-su and Young-ju got together. Maybe it is just me, I personally felt that it looked kind of forced, and that Moon-su was dating Young-ju out of sympathy, since for most of the movie, Young-ju is portrayed very effectively as the an obnoxious and foppish coquette. Considering Moon-su's personality in the film as being generous and sincere, I guess that has to be the only reason why he started to date her.
Above all, this movie definitely ranks about down there with films like Crazy First Love.
Sung-su Kim should really stay in the serious-movie genre
