Underestimated!
12 December 2004 | by david-1577See all my reviews

Sadly this movie hasn't reached that many outside Southkorea. That's bad because this is funny, smart and moving. I love it. The actors are great and I just love Seung-hon Song when she's crying. Even though some of the special effects is kind of bad they are not disturbing the experience. Like many other South Korean movies the story is kind of odd at the beginning but after a while things beginning to get clearer. Not that many twists but exiting in its own special way.

Watch it, cry and laugh because this is the best Korean Comedy/Romance-movie since My Sassy Girl. Not better but close enough. Or maybe...
