She then leans over to Gyun-Woo and everybody assumes she is his girlfriend! Gyun-Woo soon finds himself in a relationship he didn't ask for, but soon unable to forget this sassy girl.

  2. The owner of the motel, where Gyeon-Woo and the Girl stay at twice, also is a subway operator and the gang leader that Gyeon-Woo encounters in prison. They are actually quintuplets (played by Kim Il-Woo). News of their birth is shown in a news article hanging at the door of the motel. They appear throughout the film.
  3. The transvestite girl Gyeon-Woo meets when he and The Girl are broken up appears earlier in the film, sitting next to The Girl on the subway scene where The Girl brings the forgotten package to the grandmother.
  4. The soundtrack used at the wuxia/samurai spoof scene was derived from Ashes of Time.

chhmar mika, excellent idea. i expect you will also condemn Lord of the rings, Batman movies, and yes those dreadfully violent Tom & Jerry cartoons too. just for fairness sake?

Mika Over-rated and irresponsible. There is nothing funny or magical about domestic violence no matter who's doing the hitting. Ugh.

nikhil Hi friends I am frm India. I am a huge fan of korean movies. They created movies which are very much realistic. The main problem with hollywood movies is that it lack emotion. I never seen any hollywood movies where the actors cry or love feel genuine. It makes asian movies different. I am agreeing that some of the indian movies are over expressive.

 Memories of murder- its the main reason I begin to love korean movies. Wat a fantastic movie it is. A hair raising movie. After watching this movie I searched a lot on net to find out which is the best korean movie. I found some titles. Then I started to download many movies. I watch A moment to remember, oldboy, brotherhood of war, I saw the devil.. all are superb. If I classify best romantic movies ever made in world movies My sassy girl and A moment to remember willbe in top list. Both the movies will make us to think how a love shouldbe. I am waiting for more such germs from korea

chhmar like many here, MSG introduced me to theworld of K movies.. not perfect but great story telling .. simply enjoyable.. unlike those dreadfully sick "auteur" films some of those critics seem to lap up to the dredges.

Eskimo The movie is a true masterpiece. I've seen like over 80 korean movies so far and this really is one of the best. The story has so much depths and the twist is so mind-boggling and beautiful at the same time. It's funny and romantic, and emotional towards the end. The story isn't exactly linear but it also doesn't mean that it's complex. It's something you can truly enjoy without having to put in much thoughts, but when it's time for the reveal, everything is pieced out for you so perfectly. It's like understanding a math question in class, at ease.

Quilla Loved the movie so much. I cried, and laughed in tell my head hurt that's how good it was. If you have not seen the movie yet you MUST! And if you don't get it or don't like it, then your not up to its standards just saying. It's a MUST WATCH MOVIE...

Jaimie What a stupid movie!

charles ering it is my first korean movie and i love it now i will watch all korean movie it is so good. the actress and actor played very good rol 5stars....

Dena This movie was fun , enjoyed watching it

NP Just re-watched it, and after watching the American version, I must say this was a gazillion times better! Especially the acting - unbelievable chemistry. The actors worked so well together and with their characterisation. Superb. One of the most flawless piece of cinema if there ever was one.

maya don't listen to the buzz, really bad movie. can't understand what people find in it? suffered every moment..

Hari This is my first Korean movie which I started seeing accidentally, but after that I became fan and I watched the Movie N number of times... I Love this Movie alot. Thanks to the Director that he presented the reality in the Movie.

xia I watch this film more than 30 times.

hannah The best,. Is this the part 2 of Windstruck??

Rainee 12 years without Cha Tae Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun in another movie or drama is blasphemy! They are so good together, it's like firework! Oh please, please, make them work together again! Make it a drama, 20 episodes or more, and let them be husband and wife. Conjure and concoct every conflict and issue but then make sure we get them to make up and make us giddy... There's only so much repeated viewings of this movie and Happy Together that I can watch T____T

HarryMatt This is movie is a classic romantic comedy.I will always love it and it was my first korean movie i saw which made me become a fan of Korean rom coms.I don't have to recommend it.This movie is world famous.Cha Tae-Hyun & Ji-hyun Jun make the perfect couple.Too bad they have not acted together after this except for a small scene in WindStruck.

G>O this was the first k film d filmsi have ever seen and this film make me love k pop and kdrama an

chuck this is my most favorite movie of all the story is so good but there is something in the movie that didnt been shown like in the novel
