I Loved It.
8 August 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After watching so many Korean movies well the movies for me seemed to get well..dull...never boring..just not the brightest star either. This movie I simply loved because it is different. Very unique story line.

The storyline: [ try to have no spoilers] A young boy,Ne-mo, born of an unwed mother, dreams of marrying an unwed mother. After the sudden death of his mother, a comic book rental shop replaces his mother's watch shop. Bu-ja, the shop's owner, is an unmarried mother living with Gi-cheol, her young son. Ne-mo has a crush on Bu-ja and proposes marriage to her. One day, when he goes to the movie theater with Bu-ja and Gi-cheol, a fire breaks out at the theater and he rushes into the fiery theater to save Gi-cheol. Although Gi-cheol is rescued, Ne-mo awakes after 20 days. However, Ne-mo is no longer 13 years old but has suddenly become a 33-year-old man. He had gone to heaven because of the fire, but he did a deal with the messenger who brings dead souls to the next world--Ne-mo would grow one year older for every passing day. Now he has only 60 days to live 60 years.. .

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys Korean movies or simply anyone who loves to watch movies and don't mind the subtitles.

9/10
