This drama is about a 20 year old woman with the mental capacity of a 7 year old. She ends up bumping into a guy who she falls in love with and thinks is her prince charming. The guy thinks she is cute and in the beginning fails to notice that she is mentally slow.

This story is very original with the main characters' relationship as only a part of the much read more bigger story. First and foremost it's a coming of age drama about a woman who is a self proclaim late bloomer.

This movie is great to watch and I highly recommend it if someone wants to watch a good story without devoting hours to a long drama. Overall I give this movie an 8 and I will defiantly re-watch.

A bullying movie that shocks! At the same time it teaches us a true lesson and irritates us in the form of the mundane injustices of our world!

    This was a sweet and warm movie. Kang Hye Jung is really a phenomenal actor.

    Cursed is the prejudice and cursed is who gave idea to give the title of "Herb" for this movie?
    When it reads "Herb" or "Herb" in Portuguese, what comes in mind is that it will be a film that talks about Cannabis, Jamaica and Bob Marley, but it is quite the opposite, the title comes from the herbarium that the girl's mother Has, and I can assure you that there is no such Cannabis that leaves the staff "high-minded".
    I found the drama very good! Beautiful and fluffy, a pity that there is such a bias from the minority that it has mediocre and putrefying mentality that is present in society just to nourish its foul egos.
    Other components like soundtrack, wonderful cast and ambiance, perfect acting and a beautiful story of pain and love, I liked it and recommend it!

    Everyone here seem to dislike this movie (except for me xD). Maybe it's because I like movies about persons with mental retardations, but I just loved this one. :)

    I made a promise to myself to watch everything Jung Kyung Ho was in. I loved him but where the hell was he from the middle onward. Completely gonee. The ending sucked.

    this for me was and ok film i loved the mother daughter relationship and how in a sense you saw the girl grow to understand things more, what i didnt like about the film was the relationship with the guy, it seems like he was just forgotten towards the end of the film and the ending of the film was in one word 'meh' but apart from that the film is sweet simplistic and heartwarming

    I didn't like it, plain and simple. I usually like just about everything, but this just wasn't good.
