She wasn't even sure if she would take the job as an assistant, but after buying an expensive black mini dress with the writer's credit card, read moreshe accepts the job. Her job turns out to be more of a babysitter for the writer's twin sons.

Hye Ji is busy playing around and living the life of a socialite. One day, she is scouted by a talent agency. She then becomes the face for a high profile ad campaign and shoots to stardom. Her other 3 friends become jealous of her.

I am not exactly sure what this movie is trying to say. I came away from it not really enjoying anything about the hour plus I spent watching it.

It wants to be a slice of life of four girlfriends trying to find their way after college but it gives you no real story trajectory and no one to really identify with or root for.

I see the conflict of four girls read more sort of drifting apart after college but I never got a clear picture of why they felt bonded in the first place or what there reasons would be to fight for their friendships. The writer gives you nothing tangable to hang onto. The angst seemed forced and unreal. The girls each had real problems but the way they were presented to me made their reactions to these problems seem petty and selfish.

The acting wasn\''t bad but the story was uninteresting. If I pause a movie to go wash the dishes...something is very wrong. I am not sure why I finished actually.

Hmmm.....I'm kind of disappointed with the movie and I liked it at the same time. Disappointed because I was very confused about the whole plot of the story. What were they trying to say? The whole story is supposed to be about how four best friends try to find their way of life after they graduate college but somehow they didn't really portray enough events to really make you understand what was read more going. It was kind of confusing too. I expected more since they said it was the korean version of Sex in the City. Although I was disappointed, I still very much liked the characters and how the actors and actresses played them. I envy the girls in the movie. It's nice to have someone there to talk to and share each others pain like what true best friends do. I still really expected more from the movie...

Friendship between the girls is the concept of both drama and movie. And also the envy that is growing when one of them become succesful.

    People will either love or hate this movie. I watched for Yoon Eun Hye, but felt that even her acting in this was a bit bland. Whether it was the writers or not, I'm not too sure. At the same time, I felt that although Che Ye Ryeon's character was obnoxiously far too jealous, she at least acted a lot better compared to the actress I actually came for. It's a fun movie that leaves you sad at times as well. Sometimes it's just overall stupid and most audiences can't really relate to the characters as much as the synopsis makes it seem.

    I didn't bother writing a review because it would have been very short. "What was this movie about again? Who knows and who cares." Boring, no clear cut story line, no engaging characters, no good acting, basically there was nothing.

    I really liked this movie, and the fact that it did not have a clear message - because that's life for you, it's hard and most of the time you never know what to expect or what to look for, but you still have to manage somehow and keep on going. I liked that each character had a sort of hidden story, a cause which made them into who they are or act a certain way (even close friends don't talk about certain things). And sometimes - doesn't loneliness still strike you and you just want to cry loudly and messily? This was a nice slice of life type of movie, regardless of the low reviews.

    I liked this movie but not really loved love it.. But, I loved how Yoon Eun Hye never failed to make me cry whenever I see her try.. Every. Single. Time. :) Anyways, it was just a light-hearted movie and I recommend this to those who prefer a not so deep plot or story.

    The characters and the plot of this movie are so shallow. I wouldn't recommend it.

    i thought this would be a weird 'sex in the city'-like story, but it is totally not!it's more a movie about friendship and young people's struggle with what to do with their lifes. i could relate to some of their feelings, so i think it's nice to watch:)
