I love Hong Gil Dong! This is a really fun "fusion saguek." For those of you who hate the word "fusion"
used to describe anything, this is a historical drama with a modern twist (music, slang, attitude) mixed
with some fantasy.
Kang Ji Hwan is wonderful as Hong Gil Dong, the reluctant and unwitting hero. He plays the tough but vulnerable character beautifully. His transformation (from selfish jerk to selfless hero) as the story unfolds
is k-drama magic.
Sung Yuri is adorable as Heo Yinok. She's cute and quirky but more importantly, her sweet, innocent,
steadfast love and devotion for Hong Gil Dong make him the man he's meant to be. I've seen her in other dramas but she really nails this character with an honesty that is charming and emotional.
It starts out with an over the top comic book style vibe that can be off putting but it levels out nicely into
a historical drama/comedy that is full of interesting, likeable characters and beautifully absurd laugh out
I really want to give the drama 9 (of 10) stars because I felt it deserved a better ending and it was unable
to maintain the "magic" to the very end.

January 21, 2009 Yay for Mutt Boy!
This movie is laugh out loud funny! If you are a Jung Woo-Sung fan, it is a must see. Jung Woo-Sung should definitely do more comedy!
Great film. Interesting characters. Well done.

January 21, 2009 Beautiful and heartbreaking
You will laugh, fall in love and cry your eyes out. Jung Woo-Sung is awesome. His character is damaged, vulnerable and almost too perfect to be true. Son Ye Jin is beautiful, charming and convincing. This is a movie worth watching repeatedly. Great chemistry.
Mr.Socrates Special Edition (Japan Version)January 21, 2009 Mr Socrates is just OK
This movie seemed like it was trying to be some gritty, dark, violent comedy. It was not amusing and hardly worth watching. This movie had no heart, no character development...I grade it a C-
...ing (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)January 21, 2009 Disappointing...
Very predictable. Kim Rae Won is gorgeous and charming as usual but that's about it. The chemistry felt forced. The story tells you how he becomes linked to her, but other than feeling sorry for her, I'm not sure why he falls in love with her. Here's another movie carried by Kim Rae Won.
My Love Patzzi (MBC TV Series)(US Version)1 people found this review helpful
January 21, 2009 Only for die hard Kim Rae Won fans
This drama was hard to watch at times. Jang Nara's performance seemed really exaggerated and watching her was exhausting. (She was only slightly less annoying in Successful Story of a Bright Girl). Also Kim Jae Won's character held no appeal for me. I had some difficulty understanding why the two male leads were competing for Jang Nara's character. I also found it frustrating how her character couldn't choose between them. They basically took a simple plot and dragged it out for 10 episodes. This could have been written by a high school student.
Kim Rae Won's performance in this drama is the only thing that made it viewable.
What Planet Are You From? (MBC TV Series)(US Version)(22)Our Price: US$29.99List: US$99.99Save: US$70.00 (70%)January 21, 2009 A must see for Kim Rae Won fans...
...but only after you've seen Rooftop Room Cat, Sunflower, My Little Bride and The Grand Chef. This is better than My Love Patzzi and probably on par with Love Story in Harvard (as far as the storytelling goes, not the production quality which was terrible in LSIH).
The storyline in this drama is tired and predictable. Jeong Ryeo Won could be really annoying at times. It's hard to understand why he loves her character other than the fact that she looks exactly like his first, lost love. They have some nice moments and there is some comedy relief. Kim Rae Won really carries this drama. I just wish the female lead character had been written differently or maybe it would have been better if she were played by another actress. I didn't care much for Jeong Ryeo Won in My Lovely Samsoon either.

January 21, 2009 Beautiful storytelling!
I've seen this movie several times and it never gets boring. Beautiful storytelling. Great performances by all the actors. Kim Rae won is amazing. Heo Yi Jae is charming.
Predictable? Yes, but very well done.
My Little Bride (DVD) (DTS) (Special Edition) (US Version)(3)Our Price: US$24.993 people found this review helpful
January 21, 2009 My Little Bride is a lot of FUN
This movie is a real pleasure. Moon Geun Young is hilarious. Who knew after seeing Tale of Two Sisters that she could be so funny?? It's a little corny at times but I think that's to be expected in a romantic comedy. Kim Rae Won is very funny and sweet in this. Kim Rae Won's sidekicks in the film add some good laughs as well. I have watched several times and it's always enjoyable.
