As a hallyu veteran, I could have guessed the exact story before viewing this movie. Despite this, the acting and characterization by the 2 main leads went beyond my expectations making for a greatly enjoyable watching experience. The familiar blend of comedy and drama elements of Korean entertainment has really been perfected in this film. My main criticism; the plot felt rushed from around the halfway mark and the 2 other characters that should have been essential to the story felt like generic placeholders. I was still sufficiently emotionally satisfied in the ending despite it and Hyeong has definitely become a top K-film for me.
