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.

Windstruck will definitely leave you all struck all right. The story was great. I loved how it opened up with a narrator and how it ended with one. At first I thought the narrator was the main male lead, but the ending showed it was someone else (watch My Sassy Girl first, then you will know what i mean). My Sassy Girl and Windstruck are related movies... Windstruck is like a prequel read more to My Sassy Girl, but you should watch that before Windstruck or else you might not get the storyline and it will just confuse you. I love how they incorporated almost every genre into one movie, it had: romance, comedy, drama/melodrama a bit of action as well.. what more can you ask for right?

The cast's were amazing, I love Jun Ji Hyun, she is such an amazing actress. She portrayed her character sooo well. Really loved her character as a strong sassy police woman. Also Jang Hyuk was awesome too, I really liked his character, he was soo funny xD And like an all rounder of a main character, it seemed like he was good at ALMOST everything! The other cast members were good too.

I liked the music, it was nice and simple. Also one of the OST's was beautiful because it had a piano (and I love the piano). It didn't have too many songs just 2 but that was more than enough for this movie. It didn't need too many songs.

Rewatch value - 10/10. I gave it a high rewatch value because I think I can watch this movie over and over again and not get tired of it because this movie has sooo many different aspect that it will just draw you back in and make you watch it again. Some of the scenes were filmed soooo beautifully and I love how they included the wind (hence the title Windstruck). It was really beautifully portrayed, so for that I would definitely watch it again.

Over all - 10/10. I have nothing more to say about this movie, it had everything a good movie has. All you have to do now is watch it.
P.S. do keep a tissue box with you because some scenes might make you cry (I know I cried a lot). But don't worry about the ending, you will definitely love it.

I watched this movie last night and I liked it. This story is more than just a romantic comedy. It's also sad. This movie is said to be like a prequel to the movie "My Sassy Girl." For those who have not seen this movie, I would recommend it (and to watch it first before watching this movie). Mostly because in the movie "My Sassy Girl" you don't know that much about read more "Miss Sassy Girl" (you never learn her name for one). But putting that aside - this movie is worth watching. It starts off light and fun but things take a turn towards the middle.



The acting was great, don't have any complaints about it. This was the first movie I've watched with Jang Hyuk in it, I had to laugh at some of his expressions in the beginning. His acting is good, though.



There was some music in this movie, but I'm not sure what they were. The only song that stuck out to me was the song "Stay" that they played in the first half of the movie. The other songs went along with the movie, though.



I think I might rewatch this movie again sometime, it was a good movie.



Overall - I think this movie is worth watching. Also, make sure to watch "My Sassy Girl" (: You'll find out why people see this as a prequel.

Its said that Windstruck acts like a prequel to MSG. I recommend watch MSG first, because you will get the references more quickly.

But, while MSG is more like a Rom-com, Windstruck is more like a melodrama with a hint of action and comedy.

    I think this movie struck more with me, because of the connections with MSG. When you understand everything... I recommend watch MSG first to make you get the references. (because of that ending too).

    This made me cry more than My Sassy Girl did. I liked this more than MSG, apparently, the first one sold more. Still grateful this happened. Jun Ji Hyun is goddess!

    One of the very first Korean movie I've ever watched. And no, I don't remember this having any connection to My Sassy Girl.

      It seems like a prequel to My Sassy Girl but I don't think so. They won't connect.

    I love this movie than My Sassy Girl to be honest! This will be my top fave Korean Movie of all times. I just don't understand why there is so much hate and comparison. MSG is good as well but they are not a sequel nor a prequel in any means.

    Couldn't watch it, I felt sick during the scene after the gang shooting and the camera was circling them I got light headed and nausea that's why I had to stop playing video games.
    So i had to drop it.
