(Korean with English subtitles) In this hit Romantic Comedy, with the emphasis on comedy, Min-jun and Ji-won are first-rate "players" who are used to getting their way in the field of love and sex, until they run into each other. Let the games begin. Written by
Like his father, Seo Min-jun (Il-guk Song) is a rich playboy, he knows the way to a woman's bed, a lot tricks to reach it and then move on. Han Ji-wan (Ye-jin Son) knows the art of seduction too, and meticulously uses it to find the perfect husband. One day they become their respective targets, and a war begins.
This romantic comedy is like a pre-engagement "Mr. and Mrs Smith" without weapons and spy plots, or a light version of the war of the Roses if you prefer. The two main characters, while apparently playing the roles of a dating couple, engage an escalation of lies, denigration and accidents. Each of them tries to take control on the relationship, and mostly ends failing, thus generating an humorous interaction, with the help of the said father, a stubborn ex and the omnipresent single female friend. The premise was appealing, and most of the film was too. Towards the end it takes the inevitable romantic route losing some of said appealing, but the ending wasn't so typical as i thought.
As most of Korean comedies the photography is warm and neat, the actors are valid, there is a "hidden dragon, crouching tigeresque" scene and words appear on screen every now and then. Not too bad.
