It's not that bad once it gets rolling.
31 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Forget the fact that most of this film is implausible. Forget the fact that all the characters are typical and can be seen in any other Korean comedy. Forget the fact that their personliaties are inconsistent throughout the film. And forget the fact that you're probably paying money one way or another to watch this. Once the movie gets going it really isn't that bad. Laughs are few and far in between at first but you might be pleasantly surprised if you manage to stay with it. When the story came together and the hysteria turned up a notch, I developed an appreciation for the characters because their frantic behaviour started to fit in. I wouldn't want them any other way. If you're not too picky Gwangbokjeol teuksa can make you laugh. Hey, you might end up enjoying it.
