Quotes

Hwang Dae-woo: Although I'm over 30 years old, I was never romantically involved. I've never been to the cinema with a girl. Nor have I ever kissed. Still, I've been able to get by until now. I thought it better to stay single than to be with someone I don't fancy. Seeing my friends dating seemed so immature to me. But! For a couple of months now, I feel strange. It's only a little back pain and I don't why, but... I feel it'd get better if somebody could just softly rub it a bit. Now I really want to date ...

Bizarre!!! when homicide became the catalyst of a love comedy
10 June 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is actually a pretty good movie, in a bizarre way. It is a mixture of love, homicide and comedy. Almost all Korean movies would fill in some comedy elements, and by twisting a love story with a few cases of homicide have had this movie to be nearly perfect. Why they wanted to add killings in this film, well, my guess is that people love watching killings becuze killing sells.

If you enjoy the experience of being able to laugh and be touched here and there during a movie, then this one is surely what you are looking for. I like the way this movie is presented. There are no cops involved, and all killings are seemed to be the out of choice action. You won't feel sorry about the people got killed. I even tried to understand how the people feel in the film and what I would do if I was them. It makes me think a lot, while not making me bored.

The film begins with an almost-40-year-old college male lecturer, who never got a shot to have a date with woman,now consulting his psychotherapist for help with this situation.

As he keeps asking for a change of his being-alone-makes- feel-ALONE life, god let him met a girl who just moves in downstairs in the same condo he lives. And with the help of his friend, he asked (not really by him) her for a date, and surprisingly she set it a deal. Then story follows with their development of love, until a stranger male is appearing naked in her home. Anything followed became out of control as she's true identity is gradually uncovered as the story goes by.

The actor and actress left me a stunning impression. They really put something together that gives a burst of mojo into the movie, especially the actress. She is not the type of perfectly good-looking female Korean star with 'beauty-full' face(she's obviously stepping into her mid-age), but what she had interpret through the camera lit up something in my heart

that shocked me more heavily than some of the other Korean pretty-face-actresses could do, even making me obsessed with her. Leading male character is also played by a highly professional skilled actor who profoundly demonstrated the creepy sense of the character in the movie. I laughed a lot during his love chasing scenes (and the scene in which he wears armor to have a chat with his girl, being afraid of that she might stab him, made me fall off my chair). Trust me, there are plenty of funny scenes in this movie.

Perhaps I have to say this film is kind of Asian style that only Asians may have a thorough understanding of what is going on out there. I'm not saying that non-Asians are not able to understand the movie, but rather that not many of them can be so. Anyway, for anyone who is tired of hollyMOOD's special effect 'mustardpiece', and enjoy the experience of a light-touching and refreshing love comedy, I encourage them to give it a go.

My grading: 8/10
