Hae-joo The Beauty & Dong-gun, The Beast
13 January 2006 | by (Atlanta, United States) – See all my reviews

This was a kind of movie that leaves you ending up with a sorta goofy dumbstruck grin at the end. Its like a lot of other Korean romance dramas, with an old tale of ugly meets beautiful.

The story follows Dong-gun who is the world to a blind girl Hae-joo. He shows her amazing things, takes her to all of these places and loves her very much. What she doesn't see is that Dong-gun isn't the most attractive of men. This is where things take a twist. Hae-joo is about to get her sight back and now Dong-gun is faced with the dilemma of what her reaction is going to be. Instead of facing up to it he plays off like he's Dong-guns secretary and Dong-gun has taken a 2 week trip to Hawaii. To toss things up more, Hae-joo runs into Jun-Ha, and handsome old buddy of Dong-gun's who has the looks shes dreamed of but a completely opposite personality. Now Dong-gun is forced to deal with him, and a gang leader out to get Jun-Ha for arresting his gang! The movie was quite bittersweet and cute for the most part. Like a few other dramas, there's some really low points, but ultimately it a very cute story with interesting characters. The music is also very nice for all of the parts, especially when Jun-Ha sings! A good date movie or one for a bit more laughter than other dramas and a very cute girl as the lead role.
