First of all, let me preface this with that I am not a fan of Hyun-bin and his work. That being said, this movie introduces a new first time actress Lee, Hyeon-hee. At times I felt like punching myself in the face because she was so adorable. Her tears conveyed emotion to me, not Visine eye drop solution. I will be eagerly awaiting any new movies she will be in.
Moving on to the actual movie, I was afraid this would be some sort of corny excuse to plaster the media with Hyun-bin's face; however, the movie itself is quite good.
The short but sweet love story really picks up in the 2nd half of the film. I would cry and laugh at the same time our lead and ingénue did. Very few movies leave me satisfied at the way the movie concluded, this is one of them.
Give it a shot, if not for the surprisingly good movie (albeit horribly titled) then for the ridiculously cute actress in her acting debut.
