Entertaining "Date Night" Sort of Film
28 July 2019 | by croweykidSee all my reviews

Sorry to be trite, but I maintain: if you, with a date, are emotionally blackmailed into watching a chickflick, this is the one. It's likely that you'll both enjoy it. It's chock-full of sentimental elements, colored by the less glamourous aspects of relationships/humankind; the characters are deep with believable pathos and flaws, while the storyline somehow remains buoyant and laugh-out-loud funny. It's never really crass (a prevalent comic element of Korean cinema), and stomps all over the standard senseless romcom tropes.

Essentially, if you took "the Ring" and turned it into a romcom, you'd wind up at this sort of confusing & beautiful genre.
