Bong Soo(Sul Kyung Gu) has been working as manager of a small bank in an apartment complex for three years. During his three years there, no, for 23 years if you count his school days, he has never been late. However, he purposely decides to skip work one day. There is only one reason. Inside a subway train that has suddenly stopped on his way to work, everyone around him reaches for their cell phones to call someone. At that moment, he realized that he does not have a single person to call. He does not know that inside the educational center across the street from the bank where he works, a 27-year-old woman Won Ju(Jeon Do Youn) is looking over to him, nourishing a small love. Bong Soo and Won Ju run into each other every day, at the Ramen restaurant, at the bank, at the bus station... Various trivial incidents occur, but Bong Soo still does not truly recognize Won Ju's presence. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

Ok, I'll write review since I don't see anyone who reviewed this and it was such an good slice of life romantic movie.
1st don't pay attention to that LOW rating, I don't know who gave that but I bet people who didn't find their 'soup' in this movie. O.o but nvm.
This movie was GREAT for those who like slowpaced and pure romantic slice of life things!
It was natural like you are there at the moment and taking part in this story in this usual life of the characters.
Slice of life paced, without drama and some exclusive story and character's interraction with too much to handle.. It was just PURE, SIMPLE, SLOW, BEAUTIFUL :)
Like all old movies and dramas and that nice old time :) I like how actors were natural and situations and their interaction.. and MUSIC ohhh my holly old JAZZY tune :3
so I give 10 this movie.
For all those who want to feel old times, and simply enjoy some slice of life romance between hardowrker in bank and crazy good teacher who isn't like thypical nowdays women, without extra stormy emotions and events ~
