YesAsia Editorial Description

Looking for love? Come on down to Cyrano Agency!

Inspired by the 19th-century play Cyrano de Bergerac, the romantic blockbuster Cyrano Agency offers a decidedly more modern and upbeat take on the art of surrogate courting. The urban rom-com about a matchmaking agency that plays cupid for those who falter in love charmed audiences in spades, topping the Korean box office for three consecutive weeks. Uhm Tae Woong (Chaw) is the "Cyrano" of this unconventional love story co-starring young television stars Daniel Choi (High Kick 2), Park Shin Hye (You're Beautiful), and Lee Min Jung (Boys Over Flowers), who picked up a slew of Best New Actress awards for her performance. Directed by Kim Hyun Suk (Scout), Cyrano Agency also won Best Screenplay at the 31st Blue Dragon Awards.

Byung Hoon (Uhm Tae Woong) and his team (Park Shin Hye, Jun Ah Min, Park Cheol Min) at Cyrano Agency boast a 100% success rate when it comes to matchmaking. They painstakingly concoct elaborate, covert schemes and strategies to help their lovesick clients get their dream dates, but their latest client is a different story. Socially awkward broker Sang Yong (Daniel Choi) has fallen head over heels for free-spirited beauty Hee Joong (Lee Min Jung), and he needs some serious cupid help from Cyrano to get the girl. She has a completely different personality and lifestyle than Sang Yong - and she's also Byung Hoon's ex-girlfriend!

Professional Review of "Cyrano Agency (2011) (DVD) (Thailand Version)"

June 7, 2011

This professional review refers to Cyrano Agency (DVD) (Single Disc) (Korea Version)
Cyrano Agency is as enjoyable as it is cynical. A glossy Korean romantic comedy about a group of stage actors dedicated to helping people find love (for a price), the film has wit if not charm to spare. Byung Hoon (Uhm Tae-Woong) is the leader of the four-person Cyrano Agency, who recruit customers through referral or other under-the-radar means. Their client indicates their romantic target and then the Cyrano Agency goes to work, using research, surveillance, staged events and elaborate cons to win over the object of their client’s affection. Not surprisingly, the business is a success - that is, until their latest job, which involves Byung Hoon's old flame Hee-Joong (Lee Min-Jung) as the target. Will Byung-Hoon help the handsome client Sang-Yong (Daniel Choi) get the girl, or will he sabotage his own business in the name of love?

Writer-director Kim Hyeon-Seok's film has a terrific concept that's entertainingly carried out. Watching the Cyrano Agency at work is great fun, as they execute and improvise, using specially timed eye contact, rainy evenings (if it's not rainy enough, they'll enhance it artificially), and the all-important missed date among other tricks to fool their marks. The nod to Cyrano de Bergerac notwithstanding, these tactics are fun because they mine common emotional touchstones as well as the universal love of cinema. Cyrano Agency preys upon our familiarity with movie romance, revealing more than a few beloved romantic images for what they are: manipulative cliches with expected reactions. In the opening going, Cyrano Agency is wicked fun, even if the concept is more than a little cynical. Since this business is largely based on deception, you'd think that some sort of revelation or comeuppance would be in order for the Cyrano Agency.

Oddly, that moment never truly happens. The business is almost outed once or twice, but by and large the Cyrano Agency gets away scot-free. Also, they never really question if what they're doing is right or wrong, as the film becomes solely about Byung Hoon's decision to either do his (unethical) job or steal the girl from his client. For a film about love, Cyrano Agency oddly lacks heart, because if it had heart, someone would wake up and realize what a god-awful business this Cyrano Agency stuff is. Well, nobody does and the film remains entertaining throughout, thanks to a stellar production, the attractive actors and, of course, the killer concept. Many audiences love heist or Mission: Impossible-type films, so seeing that sort of action attached to romance makes for commercial cinema gold. In the end, it's to the filmmakers' credit that few question the ethics behind the Cyrano Agency - and that's because the audience is probably too diverted with the slick, witty product on display to mind that much. Korean Cinema, you're one smooth-talking devil.

This professional review refers to Cyrano Agency (DVD) (2-Disc) (Director's Cut) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
As can probably be guessed from the title, Korean romantic comedy Cyrano Agency takes its cue from the classic 19th-century French play Cyrano de Bergerac. However, rather than adapting the play for the screen as has been done in the past, most famously in 1990 with G?ard Depardieu in the title role, director Kim Hyun Suk (Scout) cleverly uses its premise for something a little more modern. The film features Uhm Tae Woong (Chaw) and Daniel Choi (High Kick 2) as the male leads, with Lee Min Jung (Boys Over Flowers) as the object of their affections, with support from Park Shin Hye (The Evil Twin), Park Cheol Min (9th Period Mystery) and Jun Ah Min. As well as enjoying critical success, with Lee picking up several Best New Actress prizes and the film winning Best Screenplay at the 31st Blue Dragon Awards, Cyrano Agency also proved extremely popular with domestic audiences, clinching the top spot at the Korean box office for an impressive three weeks in a row.

Uhm Tae Woong plays the Cyrano role as Byung Hoon, who along with his team of actors runs an agency that offers the unique service of getting people to fall in love with their clients, using a series of clever tricks and romantic techniques. Things get complicated when they take on their latest job, the shy fund manager Sang Yong (Daniel Choi), who just happens to have his sights set on the heart of Byung Hoon's ex, the beautiful Hee Joong (Lee Min Jung). Although Byung Hoon tries to put his feelings aside, he finds his love for Hee Joong as strong as ever, and it becomes increasingly difficult for him to woo her for the earnest though quite possibly unsuitable Sang Yong.

Cyrano Agency actually provides a decent spin on the source material, staying faithful to its themes whilst bringing it up to date and adding a few effective twists. This works very well, and the film's success is to a large extent down to the fact the story is a good one, with far more emotional resonance than the average romantic comedy. Director Kim mixes romance, drama and comedy to winning effect with a skilled balancing act that never lets things get too melodramatic or soppy, spending a fair amount of time fleshing out the characters and their various relationships. Perhaps inevitably, it focuses mainly on Byung Hoon and Hee Joong, tracing their past love and breakup through a series of flashbacks, though at the same time Sang Yong is a substantial player in his own right, and this does give the film a certain dramatic tension as to who will end up with who. The film benefits from a strong script which shows a few surprising touches of maturity along the way that help to ground things and allow the film to make some telling and insightful observations on the problems between men and women.

The three leads are all on good form, in particular Lee Min Jung, whose layered turn ensures that Hee Joong never becomes mere eye candy or a simple damsel waiting to be wooed. The fact that she is a spirited and complicated young woman gives the film a very welcome shot of substance, and means that it never patronises or panders too much to rom com cliche. She and Uhm Tae Woong have a genuine chemistry, which makes the ups and downs of their past and present relationship affecting and interesting. Sang Yong starts off as being a less palatable character, with Daniel Choi over doing the socially awkward act, though thankfully the script grants him a decent character arc which makes him more sympathetic as things go on, something which further muddies the water as to the final result.

Although the film is a little self indulgent and does go on a little longer than necessary, Kim's direction shows a pleasantly light touch that fits the material well. The film has a nicely understated vein of humour, with just a few moments of slapstick inserted here and there to grab a handful of lowbrow laughs. For the most part the comedy is of the classical French farce variety, with plenty of misunderstandings and mistaken identities, though thankfully Kim doesn't let things get too ridiculous. It's also nice to see a film of this type which doesn't feel the need to play the supporting cast solely for comic relief, and though Park Shin Hye, Park Cheol Min and Jun Ah Min don't have a huge amount to do, they at least get a couple of half hearted subplots and don't have to suffer too many indignities.

Although ultimately Cyrano Agency doesn't quite manage to break the shackles or defy the conventions of the romantic comedy genre, there's no denying that it's a definite crowd pleaser and one of the best Korean examples of the form of the last year or so. With a well-written script and likeable cast, it has a certain maturity and emotional honesty which makes its more saccharine moments perfectly palatable, and it shows that such films really don't need to talk down to their audience to be effective.

Very funny and very sweet Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The Cyrano Agency's four employees are experts at making members of the opposite sex fall in love with their clients. Through a variety of goofy techniques, they manipulate emotions in a way that, they claim, produces a 99% success rate. All goes swimmingly for them, until bespectacled geek Sang Yong (Daniel Choi) seeks their help in persuading lovely Hee Joong (Lee Min Jung) to fall for him. The problem? Hee Joong is the ex-girlfriend of the agency's top dog Byung Hoon (Uhm Tae Woong) and Byung Hoon can't get over their break-up.

"Cyrano Agency" is a marvel of modern movie-making, a slickly produced, creatively lensed, well-written jewel of the romantic comedy genre. The agency's exploits and the sometimes ham-handed attempts of their clients to play along made me laugh out loud. And, amid the humor, the film's fine cast finds their characters' tender hearts. My only gripe (and it is a minor one) is that the film's mid-section, in which the past relationship between Byung Hoon and Hee Joong gets fleshed out, is allowed to derail the film's comic momentum. It should have been trimmed by five minutes or so.

"Cyrano Agency" delivers the kind of movie magic that keeps me coming back for more.

Discover love by theatrical proxy Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Is love a game? Yep, even by proxy with some spy game goings on here. “Cryano Agency" is a bit like a romantic ‘mission impossible’ of pre-meditation where four ‘agents’ of the Cryano Agency (based on dramatist Cryano de Bergerac) led by Byung-hoon (Tae-woong Uhm) who scrutinise, script, rehearse and ‘play out’ a love scenario with a male love struck client in their agency premises, in the hope that on ‘D-Day’ the client will successful ‘get that girl’! The Cryano Agency are actually theatre actors, who suffering hard times decide to make money by becoming ‘cupid’s secret agents’ to finance their theatrical ambitions. So thespians become stake-out spy cops/dating agents, using covert vans and ear mikes with radio commutations conveyed by the agency members to instruct ‘wired up’ male romantics to follow the rehearsed ‘scripts’ and discover love as premeditated chat up puppets. But due to borrowing money from loan sharks to fund their ‘spy wares’, Byung-hoon and his team become stuck in their Cryano ways. But even having a ‘99% success rate’ the foursome come across their most challenging role yet. Enter love struck Sang-yong (Daniel Choi) who wants religiously induced Hee-joong (Min-jung Lee) to be his love mate. But as Hee-joong was once the ex of Byung-hoon, who he’d broken up with due to a two-timing affair in France, the methodical agency rules then become much more difficult. Byung-hoon finds his own past emotions re-surfacing as he instructs (theatrically) to get Sang-yong hitched up with his past girlfriend.

As “Cryano Agency” is quite complex, it’s better to mention its merits. For one its a quite different romance movie to a similar type rom-coms such as “A Perfect Match” with Eun-kyung Shin. Its more a satirical drama-comedy, poking fun at the acting profession and parodying K-drama soap dramas by the agency’s theatrical methods for ‘clients’ to follow to the nth degree. But it’s funny, deadpan, clever, well scripted and quite unique and romantic enough for sure, leaning to melodrama mid way. There’s even a nifty British mod scooter of Hee-joong’s in it. Yeah! ;) Acting is very good and nice familiar faces here. Like ‘em all. ^^ Actor Tae-woong certainly does very well in movies (Chaw, Hand phone are worth seeing) and Shin-hye Park and Min-jung are the eye candy and should please K-pop fans (like me!). This DVD first press edition is excellent featuring two disks in a digi-pack type fold out, a booklet and slipcase.
