Put this somewhere in the middle of the To Watch pile...

Not bad, not great. There were some incredibly cute or endearing moments, and the entire set up of a boy passing and returning to be with an older woman he fell in love is good.

However, for every humorous or emotional moment, there are two or more cheesy ones. The acting is solid, especially in the beginning, but the movie has a tendency to push the viewer in the direction it wants he or she to, and it retrospect, this is somewhat manipulative.

The movie is under two hours, and at parts its really slow, at parts it is too fast, especially when a couple of characters who could've used much more development are introduced.

It isn't a bad movie, but one can easily find better Korean Romantic-Comedy/Dramas. If you have tapped the genre then give this one a go, but beyond that, set this aside for another day.
