Storyline

Based on a series of true stories posted by Ho-sik Kim on the Internet describing his relationship with his girlfriend. These were later transformed into a best-selling book and the movie follows the book closely. It describes the meeting of Kyun-woo (Cha) and an unnamed girl. Kyun-woo is shamed into assisting the girl because the other passengers mistakenly think she is his girlfriend. Once he helps her, Kyun-woo develops a deep sense of responsibility for her which enables him to tolerate (somehow) the girl's abuses. Written by Thomas Giammarco <giammarcoken@hanmail.net>

Excellent romantic comedy
11 June 2006 | by slake09See all my reviews

Although there were a couple of scenes that didn't quite translate for me, the movie overall was a great romantic comedy. The first two or three encounters, especially, were ripe for laughs. This is a good date movie and one that just about any audience can get into.

The repeated chance encounters add something to the standard romantic comedy formula, as does the protagonist's continued willingness to take the girl's abuse. You get the feeling he doesn't quite know why he's taking it, and he doesn't particularly like it, but can't help himself. That's probably as good an analogy of romantic love as any.

I'd say this movie is as appealing to women as it is to men; after we watched it my girlfriend knocked me down and kicked me a few times.
