Storyline

Two friends - Min-gyu, a wild-animal vet, and Eun-hae, a fashion photographer - commiserate with each other when each realizes that the person they love is no longer in love with them. In anger, Eun-hae smashes up her boyfriend's car; in frustration, Min-gyu breaks glasses and carves up a spider. Min-gyu and Eun-hae each urge the other to be calm, to move on, to forget about it. Good advice, if only they could take it. "Why do humans need love?," these friends ask each other. Can jealousy, anger, and desire for revenge lead two jilted lovers to embrace what they have? Will someone dream of a giraffe? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A very enjoyable romantic comedy.
17 May 2002 | by mvfeverSee all my reviews

This romantic comedy works so well because it has attractive stars ,playing interesting characters in a well paced fun story. Jang dong-gun,plays a zoo veterinarian, and Kim hee-seon ,a photographer, meet because of their common purpose--avenge their unfaithful ex-lovers. Though predictably, they will fall in love instead, the audience however are not bored with any cliche ,and are entertained with the gradual developing chemistry between this lovely looking couple, There are,in addition , some funny twists along the way that can make you laugh.

The final showdown of love is well designed and staged and certainly make the audience happy .This is as good as one can get from a light romantic comedy!
