When it comes to romantic comedies, then Asia has a tendency to do it just a tad better than Hollywood, and "Petty Romance" is a good addition to the romantic comedy genre from Asia.
Not only does "Petty Romance" have a solid and fun storyline, but it is so well complimented by some really great acting performances. Seon-gyun Lee (playing Jeong-bae) and Kang-hee Choi (playing Da-rim) really have great chemistry together and help the story along so nicely.
The story in "Petty Romance" is about struggling comic book artist Jeong-bae who enters a competition for an adult comic book and ends up taking on a female writer - Da-rim who has recently been fired from working as a sex columnist at a fashion magazine. They do say that opposites attract, and the unlikely couple are in for a colorful ride of ups and downs.
The dialog in the movie is good and fluid, and there are lots of moments that will make you laugh and moments that are so painfully awkward in the movie that it is just hilarious. And again, this wouldn't have worked out so nice if it wasn't for the tremendous acting done by the two lead roles.
"Petty Romance" is a fun movie and it is a nice story. This is the type of movie that anyone can enjoy, whether you are a woman or a man, and whether you like Asian movies or not. If you enjoy romantic comedies, then I strongly suggest that you sit down to watch "Petty Romance".
