Cute, bittersweet, and enjoyable
27 May 2009 | by palewookSee all my reviews

Able to humor an audience even though there is a cultural gap for non-Korean viewers. Manages a couple of laugh out loud moments in a mostly G-rated family oriented film. If you have no problems with subtitles or situational comedies, this movie is worth your time.

The film stays away from preaching its value set. Rather spending the 108 minutes of run time on the situations that have been created out of the characters choices.

Tae-hyun Cha creates a solid performance. In a role that could have been an unlikeable character, yet he keeps the main character fun. Bo-yeong Park plays her role down the middle. A solid performance from the side-kick role, Ji-ru Sung appears to steal every scene he is a part of.
