Professional Review of "The Classic (DVD) (DTS) (Korea Version)"

July 7, 2003

This professional review refers to Classic

For most of you, acclaimed director Kwak Jae-yong (My Sassy Girl) is probably the biggest reasons that propels you to watch this film. The Classic, Kwak Jae-yong's latest work right after My Sassy Girl, is actually quite different from its predecessor. Compared to the joyful and highly entertaining My Sassy Girl, The Classic is rather a sophisticated and passionate drama.

This film features the love stories of two generations, with Son Ye-jin playing the role of both the mother and the daughter. Ji-hye (Son Ye-jin) discovers her mother Joo-hee's (Son Ye-jin) love letters by accident. Out of curiosity, she begins to read about Joo-hee's first love with Joon-ha (Jo Sung-woo). At the same time, Ji-hye falls in love with her schoolmate Sang-min (Jo In-sung), and she soon realizes that the situation she is facing is somewhat identical to the triangular love relationship among Joo-hee, Joon-ha and Joon-ha's friend Tae-soo (Lee Ki-woo). Although the story intertwines between the past (Joo-hee) and the present (Ji-hye), the focus of interest seems to be the mother Joo-hee and Joon-ha. Apart from her romance with Sang-min, the most important function of the daughter Ji-hye is to merely act as a storyteller that brings out Joo-hee's story.

Apparently, director Kwak Jae-yong is using a different approach in this film. Unlike the blatant and comical encounters of the characters in My Sassy Girl, the love affairs of the characters are mainly developed from casual daily activities. From the boat rowing date to the firefly catching scene, most of them are depicted in a very simple and direct manner. There is no surprising twist at all, yet the romantic atmosphere keeps the audience engaged. One problem of this kind of melodrama is that the story is easily fallen into cliche (Ji-hye does actually say so when she begins reading her mother's diary), and this is what the latter part of the movie suffers from. The scene after Joon-ha joined the army seems to be a forced tragedy. It is quite distracting as it seems a misfit to the banal events in the first half of the film and it also reminds me of Pearl Harbor. Moreover, the twist at the end (identity revealing) is also not as touching as I would expect. It is probably because the link between the mother and the daughter's respective love affairs is not that strong. Nevertheless, this film is still enjoyable as Kwak Jae-yong is no doubt a master of storytelling. There are many unforgettable scenes that will make you love this film. The cinematography is excellent (as good as the unbeatable Il Mare), as well as the trademark mellow background music, viewers are inevitably soaked in this delicately crafted dieresis.

Son Ye-jin looks gorgeous in this film. Her roles as both the mother and the daughter are persuasive, despite the physical resemblance between the two characters. The mother is more active in pursuing her love while they daughter is a passive and shy little girl. Among the two male leads, Jo Sung-woo performs much better than Jo In-sung. Perhaps it is because of the plot and the character design, Jo Sung-woo's lively portrayal of his character Joon-ha is way more appealing than the wooden face of Jo In-sung. New actor Lee Ki-woo (this guy is really tall!) is also impressive that viewers should keep an eye on.

In general, The Classic is a professionally made romance movie. Every scene is beautifully and carefully constructed. I am quite confident that most Korean drama lover would find it an enjoying piece. However, one advice for those My Sassy Girl's lover is, this is not a sequel of that film and so please don't expect any surprise as you would find in My Sassy Girl.

Nice but slow Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I bought this movie back in Dec, 2006. I have watched bits and peices of it but could not sit through the whole movie all
at one time. I tried a new strategy this week. I watched the second half first, got interested in the characters . Then I was
able to watch the whole movie all at one time.

No question about it. It is a very beautiful film. Got a lot of tender and sad moments (especially the train scene) and
a few funny moments (like the worm pills ) I got it mainly because of Cho In Sung because I want to see his earlier work
and he does not disappoint.

The scenery is beautiful too. But, when it takes me 2 years to finish watching a movie, I would have to classify it as being

Wow... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I bought the VCD version a few years back but i decided to get the dvd version now since it contains extra features and deleted scenes. Too bad it's Region3 and i could only watch it on my computer. I really love this movie and became such a HUGE Son Ye Jin fan after watching this! It has such an amazing storyline, and if i had to use one word to describe this movie it would be "wow". I was actually left sppechless after the movie ended and cried buckets as well. Thankfully it was a good ending! A Must-Buy and Must-Watch movie of all times!

The Best Movie I've Ever Seen! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is one reason why I looooove Korean Series and Movies. Son Ye Jin truly brings out her talent in this one. I think this movie is the best movie I've seen in my life and the best one I ever will see in my life. Impressive acting from everyone. The storyline is so touching and it couldn't have been written better. Everyone should give this a shot, I promise you that you will love it as much as I did. It is a tear jerker but the ending was a happy one. A must watch for Korean-Movie fans! Truly a work of art! Just amazing!

Son Ye Jin is great! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
By the time one finally arrives at the end of the epic film, "The Classic", one is amazed to consider that the director of "My Sassy Girl" was responsible for creating this marathon-length melodrama. One has to harken back to the light-hearted early scenes, featuring such silliness as the old Manfred Mann song "Doo Wah Diddy" being played over a scene of a bunch of guys making doodoo, to see the connection.

"The Classic" juggles two different love stories, both featuring Son Ye Jin, that end up being more related than the viewer ever suspects. Yes, "The Classic" has a surprise ending in store for the viewer. It may strain credulity, but I must admit that it closes the film with a certain emotional resonance.

Son Ye Jin, of course, looks very lovely in both of her roles and delivers just the right dose of sweet wistfulness (or is it wistful sweetness?). Her fine performance here gave us a hint of her extraordinary success in the great "Alone in Love" TV series.

In truth, "The Classic" feels overstuffed, like it could have benefitted from ten or fifteen minutes of nips and tucks. Nonetheless, I recommend it for all fans of epic romantic melodrama.

This movie was good Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This is actually one of the only Korean movies I've liked. I was actually able to sit down and enjoy this movie throughout. Not a real fan of korean movies. I can't stand the dramas at all. TOO much drama, so I'll lean over to the movies. :]
This movie was good!
