YesAsia Editorial Description

See the movie that started a phenomenon! Before going on to helm such films as The Classic and Windstruck, director Kwak Jae Yong delighted audiences with My Sassy Girl, an irresistible comedy that was number one at the Korean box office and even took Hong Kong cinemas by storm!

Based on a true story published on the internet by Kim Ho Sik, this offbeat 2001 romantic comedy stars Cha Tae Hyun (Lover's Concerto and Sad Movie) as Kyun Woo, an all-around nice guy college student who's on the lookout for love. While his aunt has been trying to set him up on a blind date for ages, Kyun Woo has always come up with a reason to decline, instead hoping to find the woman of his dreams all on his own. What Kyun Woo finds instead, however, is a decidedly different kind of woman. While on the subway, he has a fateful encounter with "The Girl," a beautiful, but totally plastered young woman played by Jeon Ji-Hyun. Kyun Woo tries to ignore the girl's drunken antics, but when she ends up calling him "Honey," before promptly passing out, the duty falls upon our protagonist to take responsibility for the young woman since everyone on the train angrily presumes she's his girlfriend.

Kyun Woo's forced act of kindness ends up kick-starting a bizarre sort of relationship between the two, as the charming, but violence-prone woman starts putting our hapless hero through numerous humiliations! Kyun Woo bears with it all, becoming both a figurative and literal punching bag for this manic young woman, but as he gets to know her better, he begins to realize that there's something deeper lurking beneath her tough girl facade. What secret does she hold? And what will it mean for their wacky, yet strangely tender relationship? See for yourself in My Sassy Girl, the film that made a bonafide superstar out of Jeon Ji Hyun, who went on to win the Best Actress Award at the 2001 Grand Bell Awards in South Korea! It's the rare Korean film in which the phrase "Wanna Die?" never sounded so sweet!

    그녀와의 무서운 데이트가 시작된다!

    전반전

    그녀와 저는 같은 문으로 함께 인천행 지하철을 타게 되씀미다. 취해서 비틀거리지만 안는다면 정말 매력저기고 갠차는 아가씨여쪄... 푸하하핫~! 진짜 특이하다! 저는 그녀가 술에 취해서 배를 기대고 서있는 모습이 귀여워서 힐끔거리며 그녀를 계속 지켜보아씀미다.

    그런데 몸을 미세하게 부르르 떨던 그녀가 왠지 불안해 보이더니만 마침내 우웨에엑~~~ 우웨엑~~ 좌르르르르~~~ 네, 그러씀미다! 그녀가 앞에 앉아 이떤 대머리 아저씨 머리 위에 순식간에 일을 친 거시여씀미다!! 순간 지하철안은 아수라장이 되고 절라 재미는 상황이었져.

    진짜 일은 거기서부터 터지고야 말아씀미다. 오바이트를 시원하게 하던 그녀가 게슴치레한 눈빛으로 저를 보며 이러는 검미다! 자기야!~ 어어억~ 우욱~ 자기~ 웩~! 쿵...

    이 여자 좋은 느낌이 듬니다. 원래 그러치안은데 실연의 아픔이 너무나 큰 것 가씀미다. 괜히 불쌍한 마음이 듬미다. 제 마음 어디에선가 싸늘한 바람이 부는 것도 가씀미다. 그래, 이 여자의 아픔을 한번 치료해보자!!

    강물 깊이가 궁금하면 가차업시 물 속으로 떠밀어버리는 여자! 그러나 정신업시 허우적대는 저를 위해서 물 속으로 뛰어들쭐도 아는 여자... 그녀의 생일, 얼렁뚱땅 너머가면 살해할찌도 모를 여자! 그러나 일촉즉발 인질로 잡혀있던 나를 목숨걸고 구해주며 기막힌 감동을 먹일쭐도 아는 여자!

    후반전

    요즘은 그녀가 참 많이 우씀미다. 해맑게 웃는 그녀를 보고 있으면 제 마음도 한 없이 행복해짐미다. 지금까지 제가 힘이 되어주었는지 자신이 업씀미다. 제가 그녀를 감싸준것도 그녀에게 보여준 것도 또 그녀를 치료한 적도 없는 것 가씀미다. 이제 그녀 곁을 떠날 때가 점점 가까워지는 것을 느낌미다.
    그리고 오늘 타임캡슐에 서로의 마음을 담고 타이머를 2년 후에 맞춰씀미다. 이 캡슐이 열리는 날! 서로의 마음을 확인할 껌미다. 그렇게 그녀는 헤어지자는 말을 대신했슴미다.

    연장전

    오늘 헤어지고 내일 만나는 것처럼 우리는 지금 헤어지고 분명히 다시 만날 것임미다. 다만 오늘과 내일처럼 가까운 시간이 아닐 뿐... 믿슴미다.

    Professional Review of "My Sassy Girl a.k.a. Yupki Girl"

    September 5, 2008

    This professional review refers to My Sassy Girl(Director's Cut)(Hong Kong Version)
    There's no easy way to start this, so I've just gotta blurt it out: this is a great movie. The characters are fresh and engaging, the plot is simple yet manages to surprise, and the whole is just superbly well-crafted. It's long, but well worth it: there's a bit of sag in the middle, but otherwise it's a goer from beginning to end.

    Now it gets even harder: why is it so great? Well, the actors handle their roles with verve and energy and, dare I say it, sass, and the writer/director must take some credit, for producing the snappy pace and quirky situations. The initial sketching of the characters is done in very broad strokes, and gives us a hero and heroine who are interesting and clearly at odds. The hero, likeable but perhaps a tad shallow in his preference for quiet, pretty girly girls, doesn't look like a suitable match for anyone with any depth, and we're caught early on thinking this might be a predictable adventure.

    Not so, once we meet the heroine: we find her on the train, pissed as a newt (a marvellous phrase from my youth that I'm determined to resurrect), and not exactly presenting at her best. She's even less appealing when she throws up and calls our hero ""Honey"" before passing out, since this leads to the passengers assuming he is her boyfriend, and demanding that he clean up. Ick. Double ick. But we soon see another side to both characters as a result: he cleans up and carries her about town rather than abandon her, and she shows a hint of the sadness that drives her to be such a pain. He even takes her to a love hotel, and stays with her, but doesn't attempt to molest her in her sleep (luckily, or I'd have stopped watching right there).

    After that, the rest of the film consists mostly of our hero being dragged around Seoul, abused, misused, and humiliated, but ever more determined to delve to the heart of this perplexing girl. From a female point of view, and a fairly fractious female at that, it's nice to see the girl getting to call the shots. I particularly liked seeing her make the hero wear her high-heel shoes all the way home when her feet hurt: instead of letting him carry her, she makes him realise just how uncomfortable heels can be. It takes the wind out of the whole "rescuing hero" image, where the strong man helps the fragile girly without actually having to empathise.

    I could wiffle on forever, but I won't. All I'll say is that, if you like romantic comedies, this is an absolute stunner, and if you don't, it's still an absolute stunner. See it for the laughs, see it for the love, or see it for the turning upside down of gender stereotypes, but just see it.

    This professional review refers to My Sassy Girl (2001) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
    With a fruitful plot and many unforgettable moments, My Sassy Girl is definitely the best Korean film made in 2001. It is a film that requires multiple viewings. The more you see, the more fun you can retrieve from it.

    The story of this film is adapted from a Korean novel published on the internet. The plotline is quite simple and direct indeed. Cha Tae-Hyun plays a benevolent college student who has a strange encounter with the drunken Jeon Ji-Hyun. They soon become friends. Because of Jeon's unique personality, they have a hard time getting together. Later, Cha discovers that...

    After reading this brief synopsis, you may wonder what is so special about this story. Why is this film so great? At first glance, the story may really look typical, but the director was wise enough to turn banal subject into good drama. Surprise keeps popping up since every scene is handled creatively and every dialogue is built up brilliantly. For instance, the arrangement of Cha and Jeon's first "date" in the motel is a courageous and innovative idea. What is cool about it is that, contrary to the typical assumption that motel must be connected to sex, this scene does not imply any sexual meaning at all, yet it is still very funny and surprising. Other scenes like the kidnapping at the theme park, delivery of flower in the lecture hall, or even the soft conversation under the tree are all remarkable. The story keeps you refreshed by bringing you unexpected moments again and again.

    Without doubt this film is a comedy, the jokes and the performance of the actors are excellent, yet the romantic part is also impressive. Considering that it is a light-hearted comedy, the sincere conversation of Jeon Ji-Hyun at the end is much more susceptible than I expected. The romance is depicted more faithful and passionate than many pure romance films.

    Apart from love and humors, this film also contains certain sci-fi elements. As the director admitted, UFO does appear in the film once, so as the man from the future. These elements may not affect the major plot of the story, but it increases the rewatch value of the film to a certain extent. If you didn't know about all this bonus materials before, it is time to rewatch it again!

    Talking about the cast, both Cha Tae-Hyun and Jeon Ji-Hyun have done a splendid job. As we all know, both of them are new actors, but they were able to humanize their characters and make them look appealing. They also succeeded in commanding the emotions of the audience at will.

    My Sassy Girl is a well constructed work. It is easy to make a conclusion for this review - go watch it! If you have missed the theatrical release, it's time to get the DVD now!

    Jeon Ji Hyun has had me hooked since 2005. She is a great actress and I cannot express how great a film this is. My goal is to see everything that she and Ha Ji Won are in. Her comedic timing and acumen is great. This film made me laugh and cry and that's ok.

    The best movie. Ever. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I know, I know...it's a five year-old movie but you have to admit that it still has the appeal it had five years ago. So let's talk about this movie that started all that 'Wanna die?' craze.

    Adopted from the real-life experience of a guy narrated over the Internet, this movie is about his peculiar relationship with a pretty girl who lost her boyfriend and can't seem to move on. Gyun-woo senses the girl's sadness despite her attempt at sassiness, and being the nice guy that he is, he stays by the girl's side, doing whatever she fancies letting him do, making her happy and in effect, healing her sorrow. He knows it's a temporary thing, their relationship. But as time passes, the relationship gets deeper and it's becoming quite difficult for Gyun-woo to let go.

    The girl is grateful for Gyun-woo's company. But she is likewise in an emotional quandary. She knows it's unfair to take advantage of Gyun-woo's good nature, but she needs him to heal. Just when she begins enjoying Gyun-woo's companionship and is slowly letting go of her dead boyfriend's memory, she feels guilt towards Gyun-woo and her dead boyfriend. What's her solution? She asks Gyun-woo to write her a letter, expressing what he really feels for her. This letter, together with her own for Gyun-woo, are placed in a container she calls a time capsule, which both will open two years later. This girl has a fixation for time capsules. I guess when you're hurting from a broken heart, you have your own methods for coping - others go on a shopping or eating binge; she, on time capsules.

    Anyway, two years later. Gyun-woo shows up at their rendezvous point, she doesn't. Does this mean she's hurting still? Or worse, has she completely moved on and in the process has forgotten Gyun-woo too?

    Everything about this movie is insanely wonderful that it remains on top of my all-time favorite Korean movies since I watched it five years ago. It has a topnotch story making it difficult to believe that it's an Internet adaptation. It works either way: a light drama with a touch of comedy, or a light comedy with a touch of drama. What really fascinates me is the peculiar relationship between Gyun-woo and the girl (the movie never mentioned her name) and the manner it was presented resulting in the romance aspect of the movie being subtle. Very nicely done. The narration is witty, funny and downright entertaining that nowhere in the duration of the movie would you feel bored.

    Two thumbs up to the lead actors; if I had more thumbs, I would have gone right ahead and raised them all as well. Special mention to Cha Tae-hyeon. Although not your typical handsome guy, he was so lovable in this movie, naturally funny and quite amusing. No other actor would have been capable of playing Gyun-woo the way he did. It felt like the role was tailor-made for him.

    From the Internet to the big screen, this movie went on to become a Korean phenomenon, overshadowing movies of the same genre. It set the trend for Korean romcom drama, and while there may have been movies with similar themes which have done well artistically and commercially, this movie is in a class of its own.
