Romantic nay sayers will have trouble disliking this one
13 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Gwangshiki dongsaeng gwangtae (English Title: When Romance Meets Destiny) revolves around two brothers whom both have never told a woman "I love you".

Gwang-sik is naturally shy and his confidence with the opposite sex is non-existent. He has been in love with the same woman since his senior year of University but has never expressed his feelings, even though she seems interested in him as well.

Gwang-tae is outgoing and has no problems getting a woman into bed. However, his inability to take relationships seriously prevents him from having a meaningful connection to women.

Both men have to learn to move past their romantic blunders in order to truly find the love they desire, even if it means breaking their own hearts.

Humorous dialogue and believable characters make this a romantic comedy at its best. All the actors (main and supporting) are well suited in their roles and keep the movie interesting and funny beyond what the script dictates.

Romantic nay sayers will have trouble disliking this one.
