Synopsis: Lee Ho Tae is a hot shot criminal profiler, he was working on a serial murder case. With his help, detectives are staked out to catch the murderer, but the suspect becomes involved in a hit-and-run accident. Ho Tae assures everyone he will catch the driver of the hit-and-run accident.

He works on the case and figures out the driver of the car, he then enters the drivers unlocked apartment and comes face to face with him. He’s stunned to see that the woman is Yoon Jin Sook.. his first love from his college days. Soon, Ho Tae also learns that the woman is a cunning burglar.

Musings: First love movies have that way of getting to me. I loved this one especially as Yoon Jin-sook was the one he was looking for 10 years and never forgot. As with most comedies, I worry whether I will get the humor; however, I admit to laughing out loud a couple of times.

I liked how they incorporated the flashback to Ho Tae’s college days so that you could see the start as well as the end to their relationship. Joo Won, I loved as Ho Tae. He started out so straitlaced and clean cut but over time, the influence of Ji Sook definitely changed him. Admittedly, I’ve not seen Kim Ah Joong since the drama Sign and the movie 200lb Beauty, both decent but I have to admit I liked her role here.


Overall, a decent and funny movie but what was best was the very nice serenade that Joo Won did towards the end of the movie. Good ending! Nice romance!

Trailer is available on on Hancinema Website only. The movie is available on several sites. Ask me if your interested.

For September, it is my goal to find those movies that I found to be funny! With the start of the fall and before the horror of winter, what better way to start the season but with a bit of laughter! Here’s hoping I find the “funny”!
