I've only heard good things about this movie - and after watching it I can see why (: For a movie that came out a decade ago it's done really well. If not for the cinematography you wouldn't know the difference.

The story sets off in the future and then we come to learn of this miss "sassy girl" who takes over Gyun Woo's life after they meet. The read more story had me laughing from the beginning. I wasn't sure where the story would wind up turning until the end of it where it comes full circle and ends with a cute ending (: It's definitely one of the best romantic comedies I've seen. Miss "sassy girl" , you never learn her name, but her character is original. And poor Gyun Woo, you can't help but feel sorry for the unfortunate events that continue to happen to him in the movie - at the same time laughing.

The acting is terrific - I have no complaints at all about any of the actors in this movie.

As for music - there really wasn't any main song to this movie. The only song that sticks out is the instrumental "Pachelbel Canon" by George Winston - if you don't recognize this name I'm sure you'll recognize it upon hearing it in the movie (:

My rewatch value is high - I'll definitely watch this movie again - I really enjoyed watching it!

Overall - I think this is indeed a "Classic" and if you're someone who enjoys romantic comedies I think it's something you need to watch (: So if you have some time and looking for something to watch I recommend this movie! So - watch it (:

1) The reason I watched this:

All my friends watched it and fell for it; they kept recommending so I watch it in order to find out the fuss that went around it.

2) Storyline/Plot:

This rom-com doesn't have the usual boring concept of other films, it has a new story that bumps out from crowd.

Positive points:

*There was a great self-introduction at the beginning of the film: it was a read more cool start.
*The love story was just great from how they met and all the weird yet sweet acts that would keep anyone interested.
*So much laughter in this film, it was really hilarious most of the time.
*Beside romance and laughter there were also some sad moments and captivating twists so it sort of got it all.

Negative points:

I couldn't find any, even if there was, they weren't so serious that would ruin the general story therefore there's no need to mention them.

Story: 9.5/10.

3) Acting/Cast:

*Jun Ji Hyun : This was the first and only work that I saw with this actress; she has a lot of potential since she prtrayed her role perfectly since I don't believe that there's any other actress that would portray the sassy girl the way she did: she was convincing, brought me laughter and some sorrow near the end: *Claps*

*Cha Tae Hyun : I really liked that actor, he has held the main lead male in a great way. The character was appealing to the point that I feel sorry for him since he always get hitted by both his mother and the girl he loves, so much laughter in those scenes xD
*I loved the chemistry between the leads and the way they acted in the park and in the club with school uniforms: I loved those scenes.

Cast: 8/10
Acting: 10/10

4) The ending:

It may sound weird but I saw it comming while it's supposed to be a "surprise".
Anyhow, it was a smart move to gather events in a way that would make the film end that way. Great end overall.

The ending: 8.5/10.

5) My impression (How did it affect me):

*This film made my day, I kept wondering why I haven't watch it sooner.
*I laughed a lot while watching this, it was a great K-film classic that deserves to be remembered.

My impression 9/10

6) Overall:

*If you like rom-coms then this is a must watch.
*If you like unusual yet sweet love stories then you would like this.
*If you like hilarious films with a strong female lead then this is for you.

Overall: 8.5/10

    I thought she was just plain rude. I didn't like the story. but the actors were good, and the beginning was not bad, so i gave it a 6/10. it was not horrible, but the guy, i think, made it better, because of his attitude towards her. even though she was rude and nosy, he still liked her, and he showed it. that's what i like about this movie.

    A movie about a controlling and abusive girlfriend. How wonderful. Were it the other way around, this movie would be banned for sure. Does she even love him? If she does, I'm sure it's only because he's her toy. The guy is a freaking masochist.

    Anyway, the movie is an annoying but easy watch. I recommend it just to see what the whole buzz is about. But don't expect too much from it. Because anyone with a brain can see that the plot is not something you should enjoy.

      Thank you so much for saying what I wanted to say! Damn, did I dislike the "sassy" girl -.-
      And that guy is definitely a masochist! There's no other explanation!

    Cha Tae Hyun is so hilarious here, he epitomizes a typical loser guy in romantic comedy. Story gets a little draggy in the middle but still worth watching

    I have always hated to watch oldies movie or drama mostly because it’s hard for me to get into it and most of their storyline suck. But this movie just freakin changed my mind. Not even a single kiss was shown, and yet their love stories managed to touch my heart. It’s beautifully done and I will absolutely watch it again.

    This is most definitely overrated but it was ok, but the sassy girl was tooooooo abusive that aspect was really annoying.

    I didn't like it and still don't. The only thing that saves it for me is the ending which at least explains why she's so abusive. But I hate how the reason explaining an abusive character is set out as justification for them to get away with it, cuz lets face it not once is it implied that she should change, and that is really f*!?)#ed up.

    So i watched "my sassy girl". I had huge expectations because of the comments and reviews. I was like "ima watch this. So many people say it's good." I don't know tbh. And when i watched the movie, i was into it. The only thing that kept me watching honestly, was just the comedy. Other than that, i would've stopped watching. The plot was so dull to me. I was wondering where the back ground of the characters were. How the people were gonna introduce the characters. The movie it's even 2 hours long. But they didn't fit any of that. All i saw was the chicks background story but it was like when? At the end of the movie. I was disappointed. I was mostly like "why is this guy even hung up on the chick? He doesn't even express himself as much towards her. I only saw that he saw her as a friend. Not a lover." i just don't know. In my point of view, i feel like it lacked a lot. Especially on how the chick would tell him to meet up with her and he would just go along with it. It puzzled me and i thought it was dumb.

    The ending is really great! Gianna Jun is really a great actress. It's silly how I watched this drama after I finished MLFTAS, I always imagine her as Cheon Song Yi lol xD

    Hillarious!!! Gianna Jun and Cha Tae-Hyun are magnificent...Seemed silly at first, but it captures the attention quickly.
    The best thing about this comedy, is that it is not superficial...There is a message and a serious plot-line underneath it all, giving it depth.
    10/ of the best Korean movies.
