Refreshing, beautiful and one of the best Korean love story
6 October 2007 | by prats_grgSee all my reviews

If you are a Korean movie lover then this is the best well for me it is. I just loved it every bit of it. It's been awhile that I have started watching Korean movie and loved them so many but this is the only one which made me write in IMDb. The story is well plotted and the film itself is so well made that you don't know where it is leading you to until you reach around the end and will be shocked to know the end. I bought this movie just for time pass and had thought it would be like any other Korean movie and while at the beginning I had started predicting the end but obviously the characters where so good that kept me going and then couldn't keep my eyes off it when the story started unfolding. I wouldn't like to ruin the excitement by telling the story I just want to compliment the movie for it was just too good in every way possible way. The actors are good too including the supporting casts. I don't know where the Koreans get such wonderful stories from though the ending is almost the same in almost all the movies it is how wonderfully crafted these movie are and have its own identity. This surely is one of the best romantic Korean movie I have watched. The lead actors are so perfect for their role and have truly given justice to their roles. Especially the lead actor his innocence could kill any girl and make them want to fall in love and the lead actress like other Korean movies she hasn't tried to be overly cute but she is simple innocent and cute too but at times only. This one will surely make your heartache and make you think about it even after you have watched it. The characters are also not very over hyped or things they are just too simple their talks their looks and their cloths too. Like every Korean movie it is too sad but it doesn't include too much crying and sobbing and still make you hurt somewhere and eventually makes you cry. Though a simple love story its strength lies in how it makes you rethink the whole movie again, unpredictable storyline and gives importance to every scene in the movie and also makes you realize that there is too much love around even the one which we do not know about or are just overlooking them. I think the movie plot is original well I haven't seen such a plot in any movie before so it is original for me and the soundtracks included in the movie are good too . I just loved this movie and would recommend everyone who loves Korean movie to watch it. After watching movies like ditto, my sassy girl, my tutor friend and this one there is no doubt in saying that Korean movie industry is the only one to give the best love story movies ever.
