Bong Soo has been working as manager of a small bank in an apartment complex for three years. During his three years there, no, for 23 years if you count his school days, he has never been late. However, he purposely decides to skip work one day. There is only one reason. Inside a subway train that has suddenly stopped on his way to work, everyone around him reaches for their cell phones to call someone. At that moment, he realized that he does not have a single person to call. He does not know that inside the educational center across the street from the bank where he works, a 27-year-old woman Won Ju is looking over to him, nourishing a small love. Bong Soo and Won Ju run into each other every day, at the Ramen restaurant, at the bank, at the bus station - Various trivial incidents occur, but Bong Soo still does not truly recognize Won Ju's presence.Written by
Likable romantic comedy offers a familiar story that is still appealing thanks to the actors' charisma and some stylish touches from the director. Kyung-gu Sol plays a lonely banker who's generally burned out and perks up only when chasing a woman who may or may not be right for him. Do-yeon Jeon is cute as an equally lonely school teacher who starts to cross his path. No huge surprises, and the film seems to continue past the point it should logically conclude (a minor quibble) yet the characters act more like real people than those that populate comparable Hollywood films, and thus hold your attention.
Effectively diverting as light entertainment, with some thoughtful, adult overtones.
