My Sassy Girl is the smash hit of 2001. It tells the story of a young man not knowing what to do with his life, and a girl young sassy girl who turns his world upside down. Based on a true story.
I've only heard good things about this movie - and after watching it I can see why (: For a movie that came out a decade ago it's done really well. If not for the cinematography you wouldn't know the difference.

The story sets off in the future and then we come to learn of this miss "sassy girl" who takes over Gyun Woo's life after they meet. The story had me laughing from the beginning. I wasn't sure where the story would wind up turning until the end of it where it comes full circle and ends with a cute ending (: It's definitely one of the best romantic comedies I've seen. Miss "sassy girl" , you never learn her name, but
her character is original. And poor Gyun Woo, you can't help but feel sorry for the unfortunate events that continue to happen to him in the movie - at the same time laughing.
The acting is terrific - I have no complaints at all about any of the actors in this movie.
As for music - there really wasn't any main song to this movie. The only song that sticks out is the instrumental "Pachelbel Canon" by George Winston - if you don't recognize this name I'm sure you'll recognize it upon hearing it in the movie (:
My rewatch value is high - I'll definitely watch this movie again - I really enjoyed watching it!
Overall - I think this is indeed a "Classic" and if you're someone who enjoys romantic comedies I think it's something you need to watch (: So if you have some time and looking for something to watch I recommend this movie! So - watch it (:

All my friends watched it and fell for it; they kept recommending so I watch it in order to find out the fuss that went around it.
This rom-com doesn't have the usual boring concept of other films, it has a new story that bumps out from crowd.
*There was a great self-introduction at the beginning of the film: it was a cool start.
*The love story was just great from how they met and all the weird yet sweet acts that would keep anyone interested.
*So much laughter in this film, it was really hilarious most of the time.
*Beside romance and laughter there were also some sad moments and captivating twists so it sort
of got it all.
I couldn't find any, even if there was, they weren't so serious that would ruin the general story therefore there's no need to mention them.
*Jun Ji Hyun : This was the first and only work that I saw with this actress; she has a lot of potential since she prtrayed her role perfectly since I don't believe that there's any other actress that would portray the sassy girl the way she did: she was convincing, brought me laughter and some sorrow near the end: *Claps*
*Cha Tae Hyun : I really liked that actor, he has held the main lead male in a great way. The character was appealing to the point that I feel sorry for him since he always get hitted by both his mother and the girl he loves, so much laughter in those scenes xD
*I loved the chemistry between the leads and the way they acted in the park and in the club with school uniforms: I loved those scenes.
4) The ending:
It may sound weird but I saw it comming while it's supposed to be a "surprise".
Anyhow, it was a smart move to gather events in a way that would make the film end that way. Great end overall.
The ending: 8.5/10.
5) My impression (How did it affect me):
*This film made my day, I kept wondering why I haven't watch it sooner.
*I laughed a lot while watching this, it was a great K-film classic that deserves to be remembered.
My impression 9/10
*If you like rom-coms then this is a must watch.
*If you like unusual yet sweet love stories then you would like this.
*If you like hilarious films with a strong female lead then this is for you.

Both these films have Jun Ji Hyun in them. She is believably witty, funny & adorable in both. IMHO Windstruck is a prequel to My Sassy Girl but should be watched AFTER. Both will make you tear up and smile at the outcome.
Both the movies have a theme of the entwined fate, and they're both just pretty super-duper.
