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

The name of Kyun-woo comes from the Chinese story of Qi Xi (Chilseok in Korean), where the Cowherd (Gyeon-wu) and and the Weaver Girl (Jiknyeo) of the heavens are united for only one night every year. See more »
When the girl is waiting to board the train at the end of movie, the camera initially shows only her feet and legs with a young woman in a white shirt and blue jeans in the background. When the camera cuts to a view of the girl's face, the woman in blue jeans has been replaced by a woman in a long skirt. See more »
Saw this movie with absolutely zero expectations...was almost asleep and watched it at a friend's place to pass the time. To my surprise, while it is not the best movie, it is definitely one of my favorites of the year and one of my favorite comedies of all time. I hope I get a chance to see it again because apparently there are a lot of little subtle things in it that you don't see the first or maybe even the second time around.
I think some people get too caught up in the fact that the movie lacks realism, but I think that's what makes it all the wackier and funnier. I usually have a very low regard for Asian comedies, but this one was certainly worth watching. Absolutely hilarious but maintaining a touching side to it. The characters and situations are so interesting and absorbing that you tend to forget that you are being manipulated by all the sappiness.
