User Reviews

 
Silly, yet refreshing. Korean style.
24 June 2007 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

This film is nothing really special and for some guy not accustomed with Korean popular culture, almost incomprehensible. Of course, being Asian and all, there is probably a theme of male superiority and female submissiveness that feels natural to them and weird to us.

Nevertheless, the film is funny enough. Crazy chick tries to split her roommate from her boyfriend because he is type B. Nice premise, however, this only takes a very short time, the rest is just the guy being a jerk and the girl being really patient. In the end, he just falls in love with her, contrary to the character he showed until then.

Bottom line: easy to watch romantic movie, with Korean quirks, something like a reversal of The Taming of the Shrew.
