Through many mishaps and missions, veteran agent Soo Ji and rookie agent Jae Joon learn the truth about each other and eventually find their way back to love…all while saving South Korea from a grand catastrophe.   

Musings: So as you’ve probably noticed, I tend to enjoy romantic comedies, and this week’s movie selection is no different. I love Kim Ha Neul–currently on A Gentleman’s Dignity— AND Kang Ji Hwan and caught this movie last year. In essence, I found it adorable.  

Although it offers nothing new to the genre of romantic comedies, it provides plenty of laughs, actions, and romance. The classic bickering between the two leads is enough to warrant this movie a view. I think the trailer at the end of this post will give you an idea of just what I mean. I absolutely adore the silliness in this movie. 🙂 And yes, the English subtitled version of this movie is on YouTube. 🙂

  1. Yup, found this gem by accident on YouTube. So funny! I appreciated Kim Han Neul as a film actress before I ever saw any drama with her in it. And yes, totally loving AGD! Totally!

  2. Oooo, a new movie! I’ll be checking it out soon 🙂

    Isn’t this the movie that someone is planning to remake as a drama series?

    And, isn’t Kang Ji-hwan acting as an undercover cop in a current movie, Detective Cha? So much goodness all around!

  3. GAH! LOVED this movie! I watched it about 4 times in the same day. It’s just so funny.

    And shl, really? That would be neat =)

    1. Hi, Niema!

      Yup, went back to Dramabeans to check – apparently Apple Tree Productions has been trying to get going on the production for 3 years, and there are finally signs of life. The last report suggested that Kim Tae-hee was considering taking on the lead role. I don’t know who she is, but the report mentioned she was in ‘My Princess’.

      Wow, 4 times in a day? Ok this is definitely next on my must-see list!

      1. Kim Tae-hee? She’s really pretty and very popular in Korea for her beauty. She’s known as “The Goddess” or something, actually lol

        I watched most of “My Princess”, I think her male lead in that drama was…the guy in Dr.Jin. I forget his name lol I’m not good with male actors’ names, though I know their faces xD Anyways, My Princess is worth watching ^^ Just to get a feel of her acting style and such and it’s a nice story

  4. LOL. I happen to glance through the last part of this movie while i was watching TTOTW last week. If only i know that ST would recommended this, i would have watch the whole movie.. 🙂 ….. Oh never mind, will try to watch this asap. Kim Han Neul… was she the lead in the drama Summer Scent? I thought she looked familiar…

  5. I will watch this. I love how you’re choosing movies that I can freely access without downloading, my parents hate that stuff lol Thank you, Twinkie.
