A Truly Engaging Story
9 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me start off by stating that this movie is not for everybody. By this i mean that this is not your typical love story.

Cho Seung Woo (Marathon) and Gang Hye Jung (Welcome To Dongmakgol) are the stars of this movie. Cha Jo Kang one day meets a girl wearing a yellow raincoat by the name of Ari. Ari says to be not from earth and claims to be cursed, which scares off all of her classmates except for Jo Kang, who befriends her and ends up hitting it off with Ari. After Jo Kang becomes sick, Ari blames herself and withdraws from school, disappearing from Jo Kang's life.

Years pass and Jo Kang (now a high school student played by Cho Seung Woo) gets word from Ari (played by Kang Hye Jung) to meet up and study together. Reguardless of the fact they have not seen each other in a couple years, they end up hitting it off all over again. Ari, though she has grown into a beautiful woman, still stands strong on her talk of aliens and curses. Just as soon as Jo Kang starts to fall for her all over again, Ari disappears once again. Heartbroken, Jo Kang decides to find out once and for all the reason for Ari's sudden disappearances.

As i've started before, this movie really isn't your typical love story, which is maybe why i was so taken in by it. The strange, unexpected twists left me wanting more even after the movie was over. It's a funny, cute and slightly odd movie you can watch with by yourself or with a girlfriend. Either way, Domabaem (lovephobia) is an interesting twist on love
