Storyline

My Sassy Girl is the tale of the first and last time Charlie Bello falls in love. From their initial meeting, trouble is the name of the game. Imagine an amorphous mass of dating disasters and you get an idea of the relationship between the young couple. Some mysterious force with the strength of gravity between two planets must be at play between Charlie and Jordan as the relationship truly makes no sense on the surface. Everything seems pitted against the two of them. Things suddenly come to a halt when the two write letters confessing their love for each other. Agreeing to meet a year later to read the love letters together, Charlie and Jordan go their separate ways. Written by Marx-Michael

Bad remake
25 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Im a big fan of the original Korean version. This Hollywood remake is a total failure.

The screenplay is bad. The story is much less convincing than the original.

In the original version, the girl was heartbroken, whose fiancé was killed in a tragic accident, and was really sassy. This made her character inner conflicted. On one side, she was a vulnerable, heartbroken girl. She was so beautiful, so sweet, so sad, like a princess lost her prince. On the other side, she was a furious, sassy, horrible lady. She was mad at the God, at life, and even at herself. According to the typical social standard she was not a decent girl. But sometimes, as i said, she is so sweet.

In the meantime, her boy, the boy, was confused. He had no idea about the accident. The girl was just a sassy beautiful girl. Himself, was a lazy, yet naive boy. He took what the life gave him. Hardworking was not in his book. One day a beautiful girl came into his life. He didn't even know what was going on. He didn't even like the girl at first.

In the days he was with the girl, he was silently changed by the girl. From a outsider to a hardworking, life-loving boy.

The remake, however, gives us a geek who had a glorious future b4 he met the girl. In less than half an hour, they seems bonded so much because of no reason. and What happened next seems so fake. Too much acting but no true feelings.

In order to avoid the spoilers, there are few details above about the remake one.

The only reason to watch the remake is to know how remarkable the Korean version is and how trash this remake could be.
