User Reviews: My first Korean movie! A friend suggested, and I finally decided to take her up on her offer. To be honest, I had absolutely no faith in going forward with the movie choice but surprisingly ended up loving it. I think the two main characters did more than enough justice to the movie. Not the best Korean movie out there I suppose, but very much watchable and entertaining. I thought Ji-yeon Lim was very pretty in the movie, and so did the the guy actor, Seung-heon Song. In my personal opinion, guys shouldn’t be pretty and doll like as these Korean actors are. The only thing manly about them is the smoking and shaving, if there was anything to shave at all. (maybe I failed to see the stubble) More than anything, I liked the ‘The Rose’, sung by Aoi Teshima at the ending credits. What seemed to be like Korean lyrics, ended up being her accent.
