Felt like it isn't all that original of a romance flick
24 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a alright romance movie but nothing spectacular that doesn't pull anything all that new. Maybe near the end and the revealing of both sides tragic past. But even that isn't all that original. The two protagonist in this love story is between a ex-boxer by the name of Cheol-Min(So Ji-Sub) who works as a parking attendant. And the other is a blind girl by the name of Jung-Hwa(Han Hyo-Joo). Both fit the roles well, especially So Ji-Sub who isn't just a face in the movie industry but fits the tough exterior. Han Hyo-Joo is believable as a blind girl and her exterior and everything works. The beginning starts off promising but afterwards it goes in a pretty narrow direction where it becomes predictable. But the revelations of both characters is when the story starts to pick up. The thing about the plot of this flick though is that after coming up with the two protagonist, just about anyone could have written the script for this movie. There is no humor in this but it's a straightforward romance movie. And the premise like this one has been done before, "My Dear Desperado" comes to mind which I thought was a better movie.

6/10
