Oh Song Kyung is a well organized 28-year-old bank teller. She meticulously has a plan for everything, including getting married through a dating agency. Taekwondo master Kang Dong Joo's biggest pleasure is buying lottery tickets in hopes of one day hitting the jackpot. He is forced to register with a dating agency because of pressure from his sister-in-law who wants to kick him out of their house. A few days after registering with the agency, they meet at a hospital where they have both been diagnosed with brain cancer and given just three months to live. With time running out, together they prepare for the last ceremonies of their lives: their funeral, by shopping for coffins, urns and burial clothes and chambers, as well as wedding plans.

Cast & Credits
The cast was adorable, and the acting was well-done. I've been watching lots of Uhm Tae Woong's projects these days. I guess he must really be that good of an actor to be given such many interesting projects.
I liked the music. It's rare that I get captivated by the music from Korean movies, and this one's part of the rare ones. The music's really nice.
It doesn't have a high rewatch value although the movie's really good. I guess if you watch it over and over again, it could be somewhat tiresome.
Overall, the movie's a great mixture of a terminal disease romance plot and comedy with a pinch of hope and heartbreak.
Not only did I love the main characters (cute chemistry) but I loved the supporting characters too (yay Park Ki Woong).
There really wasn't much to the story though. You just see how they meet and then how they spend their days counting down to their deaths. Its twisted but somehow the writers made their relationship and their activities seem so normal. It really is a very easy breezy watch. I feel like it was a bit too long that I started to get restless towards the end. I loved the ending, it was realistic but hopeful at the same time.
