An entertainment reporter for a local magazine, Fang Miao Miao is always on the lookout for the next big story. Catching Hallyu superstar Hoo Joon in the middle of a clandestine meeting with a popular idol, Ai Lin, Miao Miao wastes no time in capturing the meeting on her phone. There’s just one problem, Hoo Joon catches her in the act and destroys the evidence before she can cause any damage. Outraged by Miao Miao’s attack on their star, Hoo Joon’s management set out to destroy the reporter’s career. A job they do only too well. Now unemployed, Miao Miao vows revenge on Hoo Joon by becoming his worst nightmare: an anti-fan. Determined to ruin him in any way possible, she resorts to picketing and petty crime but all her efforts succeed in doing is landing him and herself on a new reality show. Forced to take the job out of desperation, Miao Miao is determined to use this opportunity to ruin Hoo Joon once and for all. But even the best of Miao Miao’s well-laid plans come to naught. As the two sworn enemies spend more time in each other’s company, they find their initial impressions were very wrong and slowly, their feelings towards each other begin to change. But can hatred really turn to love? (Source: Viki) ~~ Adapted from the novel "So I Married an Anti-fan" (그래서 나는 안티팬과 결혼했다) by Kim Eun Jung (김은정). Edit Translation

To describe this, a Korean idol focused film collab with Chinese actors/actresses gone stray and pretty well average..beyond average......I originally gave this movie a 7.5 rating, however with much thought, I think it was overly cliche and extremely cheesy with very predictable scenes. I am not biased by any means to the main actor and main actress. As being a huge romance genre fan, I felt the film was too short to portray the love between the two main characters and explain how they fell in love with more depth and thoroughness. The acting presented by EXO's Chanyeol was not anything special especially his character almost mimics his actual life as a Korean idol. It was great to see a collaboration between Korean and Chinese actors/actresses but I expected better.

Story: One word.....RUSHED. The plot did not have enough time to develop itself which led to actors/casting scenes being rushed and had too many plot holes. The romance was very undeveloped and didn't brought the viewer out at all. The character's personalities were not flushed out enough and needed more time to build. The supporting actors/actresses' side stories and motives were barely explained and this area should been more developed. There were scenes that were definitely shoved in especially at the end.

Acting/Cast: Chanyeol. It is hard to judge his acting as his character is too similar to his actual life. They chose a typical arrogant and jerk celebrity typecast for him that is quite easy to portray when you are already a huge idol in her real life. Yuan Shanshan was bright spot on. I believe her role kept the film going to assist with its strengths to cover its weaknesses. Seohyun (Girls' Generation)'s role was barely in the film and had very few lines and random scenes of her being dropped in. Her character needs more of an importance instead of 3 lines. Her motives as a character in the film was not clearly explained as well.

Music: I heard Chanyeol in the OST which was a great hear for him to be solo instead of having minimal lines in EXO. Other than that, nothing is special.

Rewatch Value: Normally, I will rewatch a film to see any parts that I missed because of the detail or fast-paced depthness of the story. This plot was very 'average' and very easy to follow. There is not anything motivating me to rewatch a second or third time.

This film should been made into a drama instead. There was a lot of areas to be developed, thus without enough time, it was forced to be cut into a 2 hour film with many areas under-developed and rushed. The main characters felt more like a pair of friends than a couple in the film. If it was a drama, it would have been more believable and less plot holes. I watched this because of the 'hype', I came out of it with a face of 'disappointment.'

Sure! This movie has wonderful cast. The start of the film was absolutely great and looks promising that you wanted to look forward for a surprise or something. And surprise! The surprise never came, it get boring towards the middle and becoming bland towards the end. Very predictable story! Overall, it's a complete mess.
