Once in a Summer (Hangul) is a 2006 South Korean melodrama/romance film directed by Jo Keun-shik. The film stars Lee Byung-hun and Soo Ae. It won Best Film and Best Director (for Jo) at the 15th Chunsa Film Art Awards in 2007.
another Korean movie that tries its best to avoid clichés
It's your typical romantic comedy 90% of its duration, but the ending made all the difference. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say it becomes rather poignant due to its omitting of melodrama. Instead it has one of those "life goes on" messages and does it pretty good. This created a very realistic vibe by the movie's end. The movie wasn't ambitious yet it wanted to be different, and I appreciated that. The movie knew its boundaries and excelled within it. The lead actress is very attractive as well. I hate to say the looks of an actress can sway my opinion, but I'm pretty bias that way. Its definitely not as good as My Sassy Girl but it's way better than say My tutor Friend.
