fresh idea but wasted!
11 April 2013 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I looking forward to see this movie just because I love to see Ji Hwan and Yu Ri acting together again after I watch Hong Gil Dong, TV series from Korea a long time ago. They have a good chemistry but its such a waste. They use a pair of big star but fail to make it success. Well, its a fresh story I guess, about a filthy cop who must do undercover as a model to investigate about drugs trafficking around model. He suddenly bumped with his old classmate, now as his fashion designer Miss Go. Its sure have big potential but with a lot of nonsensical comedy and unnecessary action, we feel uneasy and fail to laugh. They surely can use the love story between Ji Hwan and Yu Ri to attract all audiences but they just make it very simple and unattractive. By the way I try to love this movie but I cant. Just can give it 5 because its so average and common korean comedy. What's fun from this movie is the car chasing scene which is different from other conventional car chasing that we always saw in a movie. If you want to know, just watch it!
