Don't compare it with "My Sassy Girl (2001)", even don't treat it as a sequel ! :)
10 July 2016 | by Rifat_SharnaSee all my reviews

What I feel after watching this movie is that- even "Windstruck (2004)" had much more authentic relation with "My Sassy Girl" , got original "sassy girl heroine" cast and director (Kwak Jae-young)- was much emotional melodrama too ^_^ . So if you haven't watched that prequel-like movie yet, better watch it first, then come to grab this "My New Sassy Girl (2016)"!

Now, coming to the point- Asian blockbuster hit- Korean classic movie "My Sassy Girl (2001)" didn't need any sequel actually- long ago it's got a satisfying ending! But after 13-14 years, two Chinese-Korean production companies came up to make a sequel- mainly to grab Chinese market, actually to draw attention of emotional Chinese audiences! So you see- in this Korean movie the heroine is a Chinese girl, necessarily and unnecessarily a lot of Chinese dialogues are delivered here and there, even the couple is seen to roam about mainly in China! Whatever, only the hero of original movie remained the same. So what to do- first of all, they spoiled original ending of movie, made the original sassy girl as nun and sent her to monastery! Although sassy girl Jun Ji-Hyun had no physical presence in this movie, her 'girl' character was trolled several times. But this sassy girl fans (including me!), don't be disappointed, just take it as satire/comedy and try to enjoy the rest! :) However, several years after being dumped by sassy girl, hero Gyunwoo met his first love-who is nobody but a new Chinese sassy girl! Despite her rude attitude-he fall for her and eventually they got married! (Ah, again- don't relate this to original "Sassy Girl", from this segment- it's better to take it as totally a different movie except the presence of more idiotic hero Gyunwoo!)

Cha Tae-Hyun (Gyunwoo) acted according to the plot-but he's very much stupid and pretty dumb character here- more than "My Sassy Girl"- and it's no more fun to see such humiliation of his character! And new sassy girl- rookie actress Victoria- perhaps she tried hard in her own way to capture a little bit sassiness - but what to do- there's no reasonable foundation, just some unsparing & groundless imitation of previous "sassy girl (Jun Ji-Hyun)" - after all her character is poorly executed here. Even the plot had not much depth actually, sometimes it went beyond logic that tried poorly to relate with original "My Sassy Girl"- so you see-it's overall a forgettable movie!

So for this Chinese-Korean joint venture production "My New Sassy Girl"- don't compare it with original one or treat it as any sequel - just treat it as a mild comedy-romance movie -6 out of 10 rating from pretty optimistic view! Watch, enjoy the trolls, leave and eventually forget the most of it! :)
