Lee Dong Geon portrays title character Young Bin, a handsome, macho, but totally obnoxious young man who begins the film by breaking off a relationship in a most ungentlemanly way: after waiting in a parked car so Young Bin won't get a ticket, the girlfriend reads him the riot act upon his return, prompting Young Bin to slip into the driver's seat, break up with her, and speed off, leaving his new ex-girlfriend stranded in the parking lot. From the get-go, Young Bin is not exactly a class act.
On the opposite side of the spectrum is the beautiful Han Mi, a meek university student looking for true love, but never seem to find it. As is typical in this kind of film, the two meet purely by chance: Han Mi accidentally texts messages Young Bin before literally bumping into him. Han Mi, feeling that their fortuitous meeting is a sign that they might be destined for one another, decides to go around with Young Bin and see if there's any chemistry between them. Taken by Han Mi's sincerity and her willingness to pick up the check, Young Bin jumps at the opportunity.
But Han Mi's cousin, Chae Young isn't quite so enraptured with Young Bin and tries to dissuade Han Mi from pursuing him. The thing is, Chae Young is a professional dating consultant and a strong subscriber to blood type theory. According to her, any relationship between the mismatched duo would be doomed to failure because Young Bin is a type-B male, which supposedly makes him arrogant, hardheaded, and generally a jerk, whereas Han Mi is a type-A female, one who supposedly can't help being timid and obedient. But, while Chae Young predicts impending doom, the happy couple try to give love a shot, ignoring their supposed blood type incompatibility. But will they succeed?
Cast & Credits
As I hoped, I enjoyed how the stereotyping of the blood types was really shown through each of the characters, Young-Bin was certainly a stereotypical blood type B man with the way he handled things and his whole attitude. To me, it seems a bit silly to base love on blood type but if you throw that thought out the window and focus on the hillarity of how this movie shows us what each blood type usually acts like, you will enjoy this.
I liked the acting, I thought Han Ji-Hye and Lee Dong-Gun were magnificent for their parts... the only issue was I couldn't see any chemistry between the two actors but maybe that's just me.
I also thought the music was really nice too. It was sweet and subtle.
This movie will have you laughing and smiling. There are moments when your heart warms and moments when you roll your eyes. Overall, it was a pretty good movie but I wouldn't say you are missing out on anything if you don't see it.
