Here Comes The Little Bride
24 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

While My Sassy Girl still to this day sets extremely high standards in the Korean and non-Korean romantic comedy cesspool, more films go through the lab of sometimes unfair comparisons and unforgiving expectations. Oh, people still enjoy them, no doubt about that, but the "great original" portrait of My Sassy Girl hangs high as a true testament of perfect mix of comedy, romance and melodrama.

This film is no different from all the other romantic comedies from Korea, as it makes you yearn for the same feelings that you attained while and after viewing MSG. The story of course is completely different. Sang-min is a college student planning on prospering his carefree dating life and Bo-eun is his 16 year old childhood pal who has a crush on a boy from her school. Next is Bo-eun's grandfather trying his best to get them marry each other against their will. Keep the age difference in mind, which in no way should be viewed as a "gross" endeavor, but merely as a cultural difference. While this movie lacks supernatural enigmas and over the top action, it easily makes up for it with great chemistry between the two leads.

Geun-young Moon's performance was especially interesting to note here after her completely different outing in A Tale Of Two Sisters. Rae-won Kim is no rookie to playing such roles and he did a refreshingly good job here as well.

Another fine accomplishment in this film is delivered through its length, which stands at almost two hours. It lets the story gradually develop along with its characters, making all transitions and actions feel well paced and believable.

If before watching Korean romantic comedies you know each time what exactly you are getting yourself into, then don't hesitate to give this movie a try. Although predictable like the majority of light romantic comedies, it offers good laughs and a rare hand in the character development, making the viewing time effortless and vastly enjoyable without hackneyed emotions and unfit melodrama.
