I was pretty surprised and upset when I saw there was no reviews about this movie so I decided to write one because this movie IS a MASTERPEICE ...The funniest , the saddest and one of the BEST korean war movies that you'll definitely enjoy every second of it .

I was so impressed with Jin Goo's acting skills that are developing moore and moooore and this was definitely his best role.

What was so special about this movie is that they definitely know how to play with our emotions. Sometimes you find yourself giggling and seconds later crying .....

All in all : GO WATCH IT NOW ..the ratings (+ my review^^) says it all

A funny movie, about a serious matter, greatly filmed!
I have not watched many South v.s. North - Korean movies, but I greatly enjoyed this one. It has a well written story with a good pace in it. Unexepectedly it has loads of humour in this movie, but it does end on a serious note! This movie is so great because it combines two opposites, smiling and crying! This is a well produced drama.
The actors were marvelous, I loved both of the main-leads. I could from both expect were they were coming from, this movie is also great because of the age gap between the two!
Music is making the movie, and fills in the dorky parts well.
I would rewatch this movie!

Watch this if you like movies about the Korean war period an humour/comedy
Skip this if you expect romance, or if you want a 100% non comedy movie.
