Great story, poorly executed
4 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Two thirds of the scenes takes place at restaurants. I cannot stand watching people eat for almost two hours. It is annoying as hell! The obsession with eating is pissing me of. Ruining what could otherwise be a somewhat solid movie. The actors did not impress me at all either as most of them felt somewhat unrealistic and one dimensional. In real life, I would not enjoy their company.

I would definitely not recommend this movie. Not as a fan of sad romantic movies nor a fan of Korean movies. Far more better flicks exists in either genre with the only lasting impression with this one being a total waste of potential.

I enjoyed the thought of the story more than the execution in the movie itself. The synopsis was the best part of it, and please, put that cookie down!!
