great movie with low rating?!
12 May 2013 | by fluffsetSee all my reviews

I really love this movie, I don't expecting too much when I decided to watching this because I thought its just a decent comedy movie but its not. The first reason why I choose to check out on this movie is Hwang Joon Ming, great korean actors since I first watching him in 'A man who was a superman' which is a great movie too. He's not disappointing at all, very pleasant to watch. Then, I have no other reason after all. But, I'm glad there is no regret because I enjoyed so much watching this movie. About a husband and wife story, what will happen when the husband want to be a politician and the wife want to be a k-pop singer like the girl generation?! Wasn't it awkward? That's what the story is, korean cinema always come up with their great new fresh idea. How they deal with the plot and character development is so great and realistic although this kind of thing will never happen in the real world. That's what the movie is, brought something that never exist in this real plain world. Great movie, great cast, ignore the rating, highly recommended!
