Comment: I decided to watch this movie after seeing a couple of the movie posters and reading the synopsis because it looks interesting annd funny, not to mention that it has the dashing Sin Seong-rok in it. The first 15 minutes into the movie was certainly promising. However, the movie just stopped there and never did move out of the would-be-great stage and into the great stage. The plot reminds me of the drama "9 End 2 Outs", about two best friends who even though are in love with each other did not want to admit that they are. In this case, the story would be better develop as a drama than a movie because a movie is simply too short amount of a time to detail out the deep relationship between the best friends and really gets the viewers emotionally involve. There are some things in this drama that didn't sit well with me e.g. the advertising director who is madly in love with Ju-yeon enough to try to break up her marriage, yet willing to easily let her go at the end. There are certainly some humorous scenes in this movie, but then again, some of those scenes I have seen before. All in all, this is just a mediocre romantic comedy flick--you won't gain much by watching it and you will not miss much if you don't watch it.
