Kang Jae Kyung is your typical rich kid. He is arrogant, drives sports cars, frequents posh nightclubs, and skips school. With his eighteenth birthday approaching, he is set to inherit his grandfather's fortune-but some conditions apply. He must transfer to a school in Gangwon Province, from which he must graduate. Until then, he cannot access his penthouse, cottage, or credit cards. If he drops out or fails to graduate, he loses everything. Giving up will net him one percent of his total inheritance. With this in mind, he heads to a small countryside town where daily life is far removed from his own. Once settled, he encounters Choi Eun Hwan, a nineteen-year-old girl he had met back in Seoul.

I initially pulled open "A Millionaire's First Love" based on a description on some website that described the story line as more of a romantic comedy. Initially, I thought the plot development was a bit slow for a movie made in the 21st century, where viewers favor a quick and exciting entertainment high. However as the plot began to unfold, I found myself becoming enthralled by the blossoming love between two souls. I only wish I could more accurately describe how much I love this movie (but if I try any more it will just turn out as unintelligable babble). By the time the credits rolled, I was a mess. I had begun tearing up about half way through the film, so I'm sure I was quite a sight to behold. Eyes red, puffy, and overflowing with tears, runny nose, the works. "A Millionaire's First Love" is a beautiful work about how the act of loving someone can change one's heart for good.

The good:

There are two things about this movie that I really loved. The first is the scenery and cinematography. The second is the exquisite acting.

A small country-side town showered in autumn light, roads sprinkled in blustering, fallen leaves and dreary, rain-soaked scenes under a cloudy sky... This movie showcased the seasons like a beautiful painting or poem. The way the film is shot transported me into the scenes with the characters. I could almost smell the cool, fresh autumnal air and feel the achy dampness of the rain.

Hyun Bin and Lee Yeon Hee portrayed their characters emotions convincingly and beautifully. Personally, I have seen Hyun Bin in three roles now. I’m not sure if he just so happens to be type-cast or if he chooses these roles, but it seems he consistently plays the same character-type: rich bad boy turns softie after falling in love with unlikely heroine. Well, with so much practice, he plays the part extremely well. Lee Yeon Hee on the other hand (who, coincidentally, I’ve also seen in three roles) has a more diverse portfolio, and I am quite impressed with her range as an actress.

The bad:

The plot of this film is unoriginal, sappy and at times very brusque. Emotions seem to unfold suddenly and without pretense, which left me feeling a little... WTF’ish. My train of thought during the early part of this movie went something like this:

“Gah, stop being so mean to her...Oh, you like her now?... Love her??... What!?... How did you get in the room????.... You want to take care of her?...No? Wait wait wait, now you *don’t* like her??....*utter confusion*”

By the time the plot smoothed itself out, I found I’d just accepted the way I was *supposed* to feel and just went with it--which isn’t necessarily a good thing. As a viewer, you know what the director wants you to feel. As such, I just threw my hands up and gave in, as if to say, “fine director, I’ll accept your sappy and rushed love story, sheesh.”

Not a bad movie overall. In a way, I suppose it breaks even--balancing a predictable and choppy plot line against great acting and gorgeous scenery.
