Funny and Touching
6 October 2010 | by (THAILAND, BANGKOK) – See all my reviews

I guess I got to be the first one to review this movie then. Hello Stanger is probably the highest grossing movie of this year (2010) in the Thai Box Office and probably among of the top five of all time, so something must be right to make this movie to famous among its viewer and for me something was really right.

Synopsis: A cliché love story about two lonely people befriended in the foreign land. The name of the movie came as they refuse to tell each other name so that they don't have to care about one another but just part-time friend whom happens to travel and exploring Korea together.

Made by the GTH production house, for Thai people – this is like saying the movie came from Pixar – a quality production house that assure its viewer the quality of the flick. Despite being new to the industry with less than 10 years experience four movies from GTH made it to the highest grossing movie of all time.

The movie doesn't try to be anything else rather than the romantic comedy and from my point of view that what the movie deliver best. The movie consist some consistence witted humors, and some of the scene that will make your eye watery from the beginning to the end.

With Korean Fever on the rise (Korean Fever is a phase describing the popularity of Korean cultures, series, movie, K-pop singers etc on young people on other countries) this movie came exactly at the right time. It will truly help if you watch a lot of Korean Series, then you will know what they are talking about.

Another thing that I truly love about this movie is the casting. It is a perfect fit and it felt so natural. I guess since he is the one who wrote this movie he know exactly what to give to get the character and how to portray it. Yes, that right the main protagonist is the one who wrote this movie. I also love the casting of the female protagonist Noona, she was awesome in everyway even thought this way her debut in film industry. Surprisingly she also did an OST for this flick, which is truly touching.

Anyway overall I highly recommend this movie to anyone who have a good sense of humor and wanted to relax, and then this movie is definitely for you. Try it, truly worth it.

Recommendation: I definitely add this to my DVD collection.

Reason To Watch: Its Humor, Korea, and Actors.

Reason Not to: Personal dislike of this genre of movie, otherwise I don't see a reason not to at least try to watch it once.

Rating: 8.0/10 (Grade: A-)
