Gyun-Woo (Cha Tae-Hyun) is a college student, more interested in picking up girls, drinking with his buddies and avoiding his nagging mother whenever possible. While riding the subway, a drunken girl (Gianna Jun) then changes his fate forever. She's nearly unconscious on the train and vomits on an older guy. 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.
- One of the scenes shown during the sequence when Gyeon-Woo is reading The Girl's letter shows The Girl in the coffee shop touching her ex-boyfriend's hand and is shown ordering a soda. (Throughout the film, whenever Gyeon-Woo tries to order soda, the Girl changes it to coffee.)
- 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.
- 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.
- The soundtrack used at the wuxia/samurai spoof scene was derived from Ashes of Time.
- In the scene where the Girl meets the old man at the tree-top time-capsule, viewers can see a small UFO fly away as the scene ends.
