Storyline

Her shyness frequently gets the better of her, and she can only stand idly by and watch as Woo Jae suffers a broken heart at the hands of his ex-girlfriend and, consequently, get kicked off the school's crew team due to his resulting attitude problem. Later, while Woo Jae is in the army, Yeon Ju visits him, hoping to spend the night with him.

Girl secretly loves her friend, they meet years later and develop feelings towards each other
18 October 2006 | by beefnoodleno1See all my reviews

Mediocre. This is a melodrama about a girl who secretly loves her friend but never tells him. They both lose touch with each other for a few years and then meet by chance again and it goes from there. This movie is slow at the beginning, almost boring. But even when things should pick up pace it remains slow. The movie is flawed because it makes the lives of the characters seem extremely dull. Even though it was a melodrama it fails to invoke any emotion. And the male lead's indecisiveness is a big annoyance. It has the typical lover's time gap seen a lot in Korean films and doesn't have any originality. The ending was also very typical. This movie seemed like it was a small idea that movie producers decided to buff up and run with. Usually stuff like this would sell if they put a few pretty faces in there but the cast isn't all too great either. It lacks detail and was overlooked, watch it to watch it but don't expect much.
