Kyung Jin, a police officer, on her day off is forced back on duty when she is caught chasing down a bag-snatcher. The "bag-snatcher" turns out to be Myung Woo, a passer-by who was trying to catch the actual criminal. With a twist of fate, the two are paired together after Myung Woo volunteers to be on patrol looking out for unruly students.
This is the second of the "My Sassy Girl read moreTrilogy" by Director/Screenwriter Kwak Jae-Young. The first is the 2001 film "My Sassy Girl". The third is the 2008 Japanese film "Cyborg She". They are unrelated except for having a sassy girl theme.

The story was a little far-fetched, but really beautiful, with the right dose of romance, comedy and tragedy.

The acting was good, because I have to say that they don't kiss once or even say I love you once. But while watching this movie , I laughed, scream and cried with them at the right place. You feel the love they have for one another, to the point that if they had read more put a kiss or the eternal I love you in there , it would not feel the same at all.

I totally recommend this movie , if you are looking for a good dose of realistic acting , and a story that make you think that their are more to life than the daily hassles that plague us.

This is one of my favorite movies. It's a must see! You'll be smiling and crying all at the same time. She is one of my favorite actresses, but it's too bad she's not in more. The stroy line to the acting to the love is all well worth it and you won't be disappointed. I love how he was beside her the entire time and comforted her when he left.

    This is NOT a sequel to My Sassy Girl, if anything, it would be a prequel, which it still isn't.

    I watched this for Jang Hyuk after discovering him in FTLY but this movie's plot was awful. I still adore Gunnie though.

      You just took the word out of my mouth. It was nice to see Jang Hyuk circa 2004 but I don't think this movie should've been made, seeing as how it detracts from MSG.

      I completely agree. I really enjoyed MSG and this one was ok but when you connect the two this one stand zero chance.

      This is NOT a sequel or a prequel to "My Sassy Girl" ! .... .... BUT...

      --->>> it is the 2nd of the " Sassy Girl TRILOGY " that the Director/Writer made !!!

      so it also included Gianna Jun as the leading lady , and Cha Tae-Hyun makes a Cameo in this movie (besides being BFF w/ Jang Hyuk in RL) ... the 3rd is "Cyborg She" , a Japanese movie (same director/writer) ... and Jang Hyuk has a guest role in the Japanese drama "MSG"

      --->>> All 3 have a 'sassy girl' Theme .

      It is not as good as MSG , but good none the less ....

    I have but one question, why is I'm sorry or Please Forgive Me not in a woman's vocabulary? I mean really, of all the relationships I've been in, of which are only a few, not once did they ever say they were sorry, for anything. At the point of her FINALLY say it, I've only got, So Sad to say. I won't stop that though from giving this movie a low 10 though. A real shocker, through me for a real loop, yep, didn't see that one coming. Great story line and acting... :)

    This was a comedy?! Really? Well, if the film is labeled as a comedy, it supposed to be funny till the last scene, but this... Don't know what is this. I laughed and cried. But, it was good, kind of, and little cheesy. Btw, JJH is the strength of this film. She's simply born to be an actress - gorgeous and so talented...
