What an eerily beautiful story.

Firstly, I did NOT expect for this movie to impact me this way. From the beginning I was thoroughly creeped out by the stalkerish antics of the male lead, but as the story progressed I slowly came to realize he had his issues and reasons behind the unusual choices he made. I found myself so intrigued by the actions and thought processes of this assassin that it read more was enough of a pull for me to continue on with the story. I'm still a bit startled at the fact that I can connect with the feelings of an odd assassin but eh, at least I'm not afraid to admit it. :P The female lead was as equally strange but understandably so. I mean, who can actually call themselves "normal" when they are in love? Is there really a "normal" love story? And who would've thought her innocent love would turn out to be so dangerous?

Secondly, what great acting of ALL the characters! Jung Woo Sung did an excellent job in portraying both an awkward/sketchy loner and a dangerous assassin. Because of this, every action, every emotion felt real and I found myself totally convinced by the love and the danger it entailed. Nothing was ever overly exaggerated or over emphasized. The mood was so subtle and yet so haunting. Really. I find myself thinking about the "what if" scenarios constantly. However, with that being said, if he wasn't such an attractive fellow, I doubt I would be so easily forgiving of his "stalker-like" nature. What a shallow thing to say, I know! I hate saying it, but it's true. >.<

The music was also fantastic. Call me crazy, but I felt as though half of the story was told through the music itself. It was pleasantly in sync with the storyline and I found that to be the most appealing aspect behind this movie.

Overall, I thought this was such a strangely fascinating and suspenseful story about a love lost then found. It makes one question what it is that we truly value the most in this life and I'd definitely recommend it to those who are looking for something much more dark and serious than your average rom-com flick.

OMG!!!! I just finished watching Daisy (and it's like 4am now, yes I know I'm mad) I have only one thing to say about this movie. IT'S AWESOME!!!

The beginning started of sooo beautifully it was just unbelievable with the dream-like setting. It portrayed the beauty of the Netherlands sooo well, it was just wonderful to see all that nature scenes. And I'm not just saying that because it's my birth country read more no, I really mean it!

The actors were too good, every one of them played their characters sooo well!!! I fell in love with both the male leads! I couldn't choose who I liked more: Lee Sung Jae who played the role of officer Jeong Woo, or Jung Woo Sung who played the role of assassin Park Yi! and of course i can't forget Jun Ji Hyun, who played the female lead Hye Young. She was just wonderful, she was able to portray the sadness and pain so well. None of the actors exaggerated their characters. It was just perfect!

I totally love the music used in the movie, maybe that's because they used classical/ballads. It was totally in synch with the plot of the movie. I think because of that I ended up enjoying it even more xD

Daisy is now on my list of all time favourite movies

One is a Korean movie and the other a Thai drama, but both have a hitman who falls in love with an innocent woman who's an artist. (And both are awesome.)

Both films are similar in subtext although very different otherwise. However, both films are very silent. In Daisy the main character can't speak for the bigger part of the film and in 3-iron there are no spoken lines before the very end. However, both films have excellent cinematography and artistic film-making, making them both very interesting to watch.

    Am currently on a Jung Woo Sung binge...Loved him in A Moment to Remember. Daisy was an interesting story, beautiful actors, good acting, gorgeous scenery, but it was more depressing than anything else.

      I would look for this movie somewhere else if possible. I keep trying to watch things here but kissasian is so disusting with all it's gross advertisements and if you make the tiniest mistake (or not) and accidentally click on the wrong area, you will get even more pop ups and terrible ads, and also the web site will quit working in the middle of the film/drama! It's just not worth the trouble--believe me I've tried so many times to give them another chance! I've finally given up!

    Great OST. Somewhat interesting story. I was brought in by the contract killer plot. But the rest of the plot was okay.

    $10m budget and this movie didn't earn that much despite of being such a great movie.

    Totally recommending this movie. I've watched it 2008 and at first it was just because I'm a bias for the main actors but the story really was something worth the watch.
