A below-average movie
11 May 2004 | by d2armySee all my reviews

This movie tries very hard to insert comedic elements at rather awkward moments throughout its duration, and the end result is intermittent success but a general failure.

The movie is especially slow in the beginning and attempts to solicit cheap laughs.

However, one of the strangest issues here is how Moon-su and Young-ju got together. Maybe it is just me, I personally felt that it looked kind of forced, and that Moon-su was dating Young-ju out of sympathy, since for most of the movie, Young-ju is portrayed very effectively as the an obnoxious and foppish coquette. Considering Moon-su's personality in the film as being generous and sincere, I guess that has to be the only reason why he started to date her.

Above all, this movie definitely ranks about down there with films like Crazy First Love.

Sung-su Kim should really stay in the serious-movie genre
