Musical composer So-Joon (Lee Hee Joon) suffers writer's block largely due to not having any romantic experiences in years. So-Joon the buys a machine "Cupid Factory". So-Joon uses the machine and meets singer Si-Yoon, his former girlfriend. Si-Yoon (Park Su Jin) is now a popular singer. The "Cupid Factory" machine also has a side effect...

I'll be honest, I only planned to watch this for Kim Woo Bin - he has less than 5 minutes of screentime in this, but hnnnnngh every second counts.
Haaa.. so. Ahem.
Cupid Factory.
This turned out to be suprisingly cute! The 2 leads have a good chemistry, although their story is a bit clumsily told, due to the fact that the special is so short. It sometimes felt as if there read more was important information left out, but the story isn't too complicated so it's not hard to follow. This would have definitely worked out better if it had been a short drama (3 episodes like "Ma Boy" for instance) rather than a special because the whole hypnosis concept was barely touched although it would have had the potential to provide some hilarious scenes (but the credits and the vaccuum cleaner scenes make up for it). This drama actually strictly focuses on the relationship between the 2 main characters, really, but I enjoyed it due to them being so likeable. So if someone needs a light and relatively short (~60 minutes) romance thingy to watch, why not Cupid Factory.

The acting was good, I've never seen Lee Hee Joon in anything before, but his character was really lovable and he had a good chemistry with Park Soo Jin, I thought. Kim Woo Bins character is kind of useless, BUT that ending scene awww. The music was alright, due to this being set in the music industry there's a ballad which was okay, but nothing special (I forgot it already to be honest ahaha).

Can't say that I'm dying to rewatch this, but it was a pretty nice watch overall!

    Just a real pleasant and enjoyable movie to watch. Just one prick in it, but that's the way these Korean writer's are, they just have to have an irritation added to what could have been a perfect romance, hence only a 8.5 out of what could have been a high 9 to a 10...

    Kim Woo Bin is a real prick in this one as he usually is in every single drama I've seen him in, and he says in this one he's a nice guy??? I'd love to know in what part he's so nice... Just very despicable, selfish, shallow, arrogant, and just plain stupid in my books...

    This was cute. The main guy reminded me so much of Lee Chun Hee though.

      That's the one, I tried really hard to remember it, but that mother was just plain nasty straight to the end, so wished they would have isolated the bitch from the kids until she woke up and changed, but like 80% of Kdrama's, the writer's just don't know how to properly write them, at least in my most humble opinion... :))) Yeah, that mother really partly ruined that drama for me...

      Ah, see, I liked that ending because it was rather realistic. Don't get me wrong, though--the mother was terrible, but the way everything went down was smooth, since her son was talking to her most of the time, and also just 'cause you can kinda see where she's coming from. xP

      True, only thing is, I see it in real life, so my beef I guess is, why must writer's had to add irritants when you want to sit back and enjoy instead??? Anyway, I now skip over scenes where they have such evil, stupid, ludicrous parents, etc... :)))

      Lol, I suppose that could make it less interesting then. xP I like watching for the story though, so when I see the realistic stuff like that, it's a surprise since I never see that often. Pfft, well skipping is a way to go, I suppose. ;P

    Anyone know where I can find this? Interested in seeing Park Soo Jin in a main role for once. Also, Kim Woo Bin FTW!
