Based on a series of true stories posted by Ho-sik Kim on the Internet describing his relationship with his girlfriend. These were later transformed into a best-selling book and the movie follows the book closely. It describes the meeting of Kyun-woo (Cha) and an unnamed girl. Kyun-woo is shamed into assisting the girl because the other passengers mistakenly think she is his girlfriend. Once he helps her, Kyun-woo develops a deep sense of responsibility for her which enables him to tolerate (somehow) the girl's abuses.Written by

They have to kiss in the end.
This isn't a melodrama. It's an action movie.
You don't know movies. Koreans like melodramas.
Know what novel touched us when we were teenagers? 'Shower' by Hwang Sun-won. It shaped our people's sensibility in their teens. Koreans like sad movies all because of 'Shower.'
'Shower'? What's sad about it?
It's sad when she asked to be buried in the clothes reminiscent of her love. I couldn't sleep for one week.

hi..well i understand the point of koreans that this kind of relationship in my sassy girl is not common to their culture..yes that's the point, what makes this movie a hit because it shows a different kind of relationship that really inspired a lot of viewers all over the world specially here in the Philippines..because if i'm not mistaken their culture is more closer to us..now all i can say is that I was very touched by this movie, I have now a positive point of view towards love on how to make everything special...I really love jeon ji hyun because she used to be had a different attitude and personality..try also to watch her 2004 movie entitled "WINDSTRUCK" and you know what i really want to say..you will really love her..but for me windstruck is just second to my sassy girl
