Goofs

When Ji-wan and Min-jun dine in the skyscraper restaurant, the waiter arrives to take their dessert order and the camera switches to a reverse shot from the opposite side of the table. The table in the reverse shot has clearly been moved several feet over, no doubt because it would otherwise require filming from outside and through the window. See more »

What happens when a womanizer meets his nemesis?
23 February 2006 | by rogercilantroSee all my reviews

Like his father, Seo Min-jun (Il-guk Song) is a rich playboy, he knows the way to a woman's bed, a lot tricks to reach it and then move on. Han Ji-wan (Ye-jin Son) knows the art of seduction too, and meticulously uses it to find the perfect husband. One day they become their respective targets, and a war begins.

This romantic comedy is like a pre-engagement "Mr. and Mrs Smith" without weapons and spy plots, or a light version of the war of the Roses if you prefer. The two main characters, while apparently playing the roles of a dating couple, engage an escalation of lies, denigration and accidents. Each of them tries to take control on the relationship, and mostly ends failing, thus generating an humorous interaction, with the help of the said father, a stubborn ex and the omnipresent single female friend. The premise was appealing, and most of the film was too. Towards the end it takes the inevitable romantic route losing some of said appealing, but the ending wasn't so typical as i thought.

As most of Korean comedies the photography is warm and neat, the actors are valid, there is a "hidden dragon, crouching tigeresque" scene and words appear on screen every now and then. Not too bad.
