Bland and generic romance movie from Korea, 14 April 2013
Author: KineticSeoul from United States

I tried to like this one but it just got way too sappy, melodramatic, and just so darn predictable. It's fine if these elements work, but it just came off really dull for this one. It does have it's moments but it's just very very few. The plot is basically about the romance between a male firefighter that has emotional scars and a female nurse. The thing is, nothing really stands out about this movie. And I just couldn't think of a single scene that I got emotional with, except maybe close to the end. But even that wasn't all that gripping since the build up is pretty darn bland. Watching this was like watching a lot of Asian drama clichés mashed into a movie. Which can work but this lacks anything that grabs onto the audiences. If this came out a while back I would give it a higher rating but this came out in 2012 and doesn't bring anything all that new. I give it a 4.5/10 because watching it as a couple is somewhat alright.

4.5/10
