Bad remake, 25 August 2008
Author: wittsss from China

Im a big fan of the original Korean version. This Hollywood remake is a total failure.

The screenplay is bad. The story is much less convincing than the original.

In the original version, the girl is heartbroken, whose fiancé was killed in a tragic accident, and was really sassy. This made her character inner conflicted. On one side, she was a vulnerable, heartbroken girl. She was so beautiful, so sweet, so sad, like a princess lost her prince. On the other side, she was a furious, sassy, horrible lady. She was mad at the God, at the life, and even at herself. According to the typical standard she was not a decent girl. But sometimes, as i said, she was so sweet.

In the meantime, her boy, the boy, was confused. He had on idea about the accident. The girl was just a sassy beautiful girl. Himself, was a lazy, yet naive boy. He takes what the life gave him. Hardworking was not in his book. One day a beautiful girl came into his life. He didn't even know what was going on. He didn't even like the girl at first.

In the days he was with the girl, he was silently changed by the girl. From a outsider to a hardworking, life-loving boy.

The remake, however, gave us a geek who has a glorious future b4 he met the girl. In less than half an hour, they seemed bonded so much because of no reason. and What happened next seems so fake. Too much acting but true feelings.

In order to avoid the spoilers, there are few details above about the remake one.

The only reason to watch the remake is to know how remarkable the Korean version is and how trash this remake could be.
