Good mix of Korean humor and drama
27 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can tell why this film was such a big hit in Korea, it has a lot of elements that Asian audiences love to watch especially it's humor. The Korean humor of it fit right in with the movie, and although Korea really isn't known for making great comedies, this one really worked. And it's mix of funny, sad and touching moments kept me entertained throughout the whole film and although there is quite a bit of singing in this, it was well done as well, but wished they took the stuff about the kid in the story being a prodigy at playing cards, playing the piano, and etc in order to be likable. I also though the part of Cha Tae-Hyun singing in order to impress the teacher to be lame and not necessary, maybe it's cause he just doesn't have the charisma or cause he is just not a likable character. Anyways, nothing about this movie seemed really forced even the dramatic moments and the comedy worked fine as well. So any one who is into Korean movies, I recommend you check it out even if some of the Korean humor is difficult to understand for some.

7.9/10
