A South Korean swing and a miss at a genre that they usually master so well...
1 August 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I do like South Korean cinema, nay actually Asian cinema as a whole, quite a lot. And when I am given the chance to sit down and watch an Asian movie, I need little persuasion to do so. And when I had the chance to watch "My Tutor Friend 2" (aka "Dong-gab-nae-gi-gwawe-ha-gi-le-sseun-too"), of course I jumped at the chance.

And with this movie being a romantic comedy and being of South Korean production, then things were definitely looking to be good. However, this was a horrible swing and a miss. The movie was unfathomably boring and uninteresting. And it didn't help much that the movie ran for about two hours. Nor did it help that the characters in the movie were mundane cardboard cut-outs with no personalities or likability.

I managed to endure 1 hour of the ordeal that is "My Tutor Friend 2" before I gave up out of sheer and utter boredom and lack of interest in the movie. Not even once did I laugh at what I saw on the screen, not even a smile. And there just was no appeal at all to the movie. I have no intention of returning to watch the rest of the movie at any time, because this movie offered nothing of any interest.

There was absolutely no chemistry between the two leading performers, Chung-Ah Lee (playing Junko) and Gi-woong Park (playing Jong-man). And that didn't exactly help the movie in any way either.

Writer Won Choi simply failed to come up with a proper script that would allure the audience, and director Ho-jung Kim seemed to run on autopilot and offered nothing outstanding to the presentation of the movie.

If you enjoy South Korean romantic comedies, then there are far better movies available. So don't bother with wasting your time, money and effort on this particular movie.
