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

In 2010, a memorial was made around of the tree where The Girl and Kyun-woo buried a time capsule under it. The memorial is called "Time Capsule Park," and it was made in honor of the tenth anniversary of this film. The exact coordinates of Time Capsule Park are (37° 12' 05.60" N, 128° 41' 19.50" E).

[after Kyun-woo reads one of The Girl's screenplays]
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.

After viewing this movie I thought, what was wrong with it? When it got to about 10 minutes of thinking I realized that this was a hopeless effort.
Honestly, if you can't give this film a 10 out of 10, what other movie deserves one? This film is the perfect mix of comedy, drama, romance, some of the best storytelling I've ever seen, and even some surprise action scenes! And what's best, it's universal. I'm sure some would avoid this film simply because it's Korean - but that's where you'd make a mistake.
This film makes sense to anyone who's a teenager or has been one (recently.) Both college students, the clumsy, laid back Gyeon-woo and "The Girl", a whimsical tomcat, make for one interesting couple for the main characters. And everything that they encounter throughout the film magically comes together in the end, and it's truly heartwarming. You'll laugh, you'll cry, no matter who you are. I guarantee it. It couldn't be any better!
