A quiet, professional killer, Hyun-jun, arrives at a house to kill a man in his sleep, only to discover a woman alone under the sheets. She shouts at the dazed Hyun-jun, "What's the matter with you. I paid for you, so just kill me." Jin-young has decided to kill herself after a traumatic break up with her lover of seven years, but she wants to go out with a bang, not with a miserable and lonely dose of commonplace sleeping pills. Hyun-jun is furious at the woman and abandons the mission despite the fact that he has a contract to fulfill. "You should kill yourself; I'm not your suicide assistant." This is how Hyun-jun and Jin-young first meet. The most extraordinary love story begins. Written by

There are many guilty parties in the making of this 'comedy'. However, after much (not really) thought, the writer gets my nod.
A comedy does not need to make sense, but the closer a story gets to being plausible the funnier it gets. There are just too many cutesy devices to complicate the story. If the story line stayed simple, then a bunch of funny sketches would have made a satisfying film, but the attempt to make a complex story to set up funny situations really doesn't work.
Also, reworking scenes to show you didn't see what you thought you saw is a really cheesy device. Especially, if it doesn't contribute to the humour.
The KISS principle would have made this a better film.
