I didn't really know what to expect going into this, but the bad ratings kind made me put it off for a while and I'm so sad that I let them! While it's not a romantic, tear-jerker, it is a fast-paced, hilarity-ensues movie that has a bit of romance, action and craziness thrown in. I have no prior experience with any actors except for Song Ji Hyo. There are some R rated scenes or at least mature scenes, so do beware and it does kind of end open ended (I'm pretty sure I'm not spoiling anything) so if you like movies that give you a clear ending, keep that in mind. Story- I enjoyed it. I laughed and I was left shocked and while it did get repetitive, it wasn't awful because of the way the lead male played it, made it funny instead of eye-roll inducing. I really want to watch it again and I just finished it. Acting/Cast- Ji Hyo and Jae Joong are a match made in heaven. They were hilarious throughout the whole film and really sold both of their parts. Their antics kept me laughing just because it was out there. It also doesn't hurt that they are both eye candy. The supporting cast didn't lack in laughs either with the cop-bromance and the sex jokes that weren't awful to hear. Music- I actually don't really remember any music... the story didn't need it to keep the viewer watching so if it did play (I'm sure it did) I never notice because I was to into the story. Rewatch Value- Yes. I will rewatch this. When you see some of the scenes, they are just so awesome that you have to watch it again!
