Storyline

The most unexpected entanglement with Mr. HONG begins!! HONG Doo-shik, there is something special about him!! He's a good-looking 31 year-old man who knows everything and knows how to do everything. He's a delivery man for a Chinese restaurant. He's a clerk at a convenient store. And he's even a singer at a live café! YOON Hae-jin is a righteous perfectionist and also a dentist. She gets fired when her 'supposed-to-be-threatening' resignation is accepted by the board! She moves to a small rural town to open up her own clinic. Mr. Handy~ HONG Doo-shik!!! VS. The ultimate troublemaker~ YOON Hae-jin!!! "I have never met a person who causes more trouble than her! She's the most clueless woman I've ever met in my entire life!!" "Whatever I do, Mr. Handy always pops up and gets in my way!! So what does he exactly do? Nothing to everything to anything!" But, something about each other draws them closer. First of all, Mr. Handy is a good fighter. He can fight like one of those Matrix ... Written by CJ Entertainment

A gem of craftsmanship
10 August 2011 | by rudythereadySee all my reviews

A smug, aloof dentist loses her job in Seoul and ends up opening an office in a coastal village where she meets Mr Hong, the enigmatic village handyman. She, of course, looks down upon him from the start, but because it is a village, their lives become intertwined in unexpected ways. The character of the dental assistant is a standout. There is even a neat reference to Ms Eom (Uhm)'s movie 'Marriage is a Crazy Thing' for which she won the Korean equivalent of an Oscar in 2002.

This is a true gem, motion picture comedy at its best: Clever subtle script; brilliant direction, editing, acting and photography; outstanding music. It bears repeated viewing. In the same league as 'My Sassy Girl', 'Someone Special', 'Too Beautiful to Lie', 'My Tutor Friend', and 'Scout'.
