Synopsis: A timid writer meets an attractive woman and falls in love on first sight. Ku Joo-Wol (Ha Jung Woo) found success after publishing his first novel. But since then, he has been in a slump. Because of his timid nature he is always dumped by woman.

Hee Jin (Kong Hyo Jin) works for a movie importing company. She is also an amateur photographer. Although she has a bright personality, she also carries a psychological scar about her mother.

Musings: I never laughed so hard than when we got to hear Joo-Wols first love letter to Hee Jin! Even she couldn’t stop laughing with all of that poetic prose thrown in! It really was hilarious to listen to!

If that doesn’t convince you to watch, how about Joo Wol attending a funeral dressed in punk rocker clothing right down to the leather studs, guyliner and it wouldn’t be complete without the black nail polish! Yes. This movie isn’t all seriousness and romance but definitely a nice mix of comedy and romance as Joo Wol, through his imagination tells us a story in the background that is surrounded by his real life.

It was also nice to see my Ji Jin Hee as Joo Ro, Joo Wol’s brother and future catholic priest! Yes, a priest to be! Though his role wasn’t big in this movie, it was also nice to see him in a comedic role! Other characters really made this movie also. From Publisher Kwak that was also there to support Joo Wol in his writings to the actor, Lee Byung Joon, that played the imaginary character throughout the movie. Granted, it took me a couple times to realize that he was part of Joo Wol’s imagination but it worked!

Romance-wise, these two really worked well today. I’ve seen Gong Hyo Jin many times in romances but not many with Ha Jeong Woo. I’ve always been impressed with his acting and I have to admit, romance? He wears it well. Very well. Make no mistake, this is a decent romance, interesting story, and if that doesn’t convince you, how about Ha Jeong Woo rapping?

Trailer is available on on YouTube Website only. The movie is available on various streaming websites.

Some where in the world, it’s still Monday and still early! Next month, I will be reviewing once again some more great KBSWorld drama specials!

I’m available on Twitter. Thanks to all of you Twinkles out here who are taking the time to read! If you have a suggestion for a future review, just leave me a comment! I’m always happy to have movie suggestions.
