fantastic film! with such good acting.
22 December 2002 | by istySee all my reviews

every person who could have seen this movie would say it has a comparison with the movie (notting hill), but certainly this movie has a different treatment. it was way past midnight when i saw the movie, and it made me wake up seeing the famous pretty korean actress ( so-young ko ) and the exotic smile of (chang jung lim ). i should say i reaally like So young ko in this movie shes so gorgeous. Well, because this movie is such a fantastic one... shall i give in the summary. Beom Su ( chang jung lim ) is a traffic enforcer who has a dream of being an umpire( baseball kinda ) and Hyun Ju ( So- young ko )who is a student who was indulge in acting. the two met in the street where hyun ju was learning how to drive and bump in,which was seen by beom su. later they became friends, exchanging letters. the day came when hyun ju must leave for the states,and tells it to beom su.Beom su announced his love for Hyun Ju, but rejected it wanting to be friends only.year passed by and both their dreams came true, an umpire(beom su) and a famous actress (Hyun ju).both met again and falls in love with each other, with the hardship of being a famous celebrity (hyun ju). this film is such a good movie that eventhough youre not a korean,im sure youll gonna fall in love over and over again. i hope everyone can have a glimpse of this movie.
