here was some really unnecessary nasty nose picking and spit throwing in this movie in an attempt to make it funny, it came off as simply disgusting. In fact, I felt that everything about this movie was a painful struggle to make it into something it's not. OK, it's a romantic comedy, whcih given the plot, should have been cute - a really arrogant University guy makes a sweet and innocent High School girl his slave for a hundred days and sparks start to fly between them. But it felt like the people behind the movie thought that it was too simple a plot to be funny so they had to exaggerate the comedy. Wrong move.
It was pitiful to see Ha Ji Won trying so hard to be comical, I wanted to cry. Although this is the first movie of hers that I've seen, I know there's a funny side to her so they should have just let it come out from her naturally. There really was no need to squeeze it out of her.
Kim Jae Won was cool as Mr. Arrogant but it was a shame that his candid acting was swallowed up by the exagerratedness of everything around him.
And what's with the ending? It just got me thoroughly confused? Was it necessary to put that particular finale?
There's an iota of frustration here because I felt that this movie had some potential to be the light romantic comedy that it should have been.
4 kimchi dishes out of 10, thanks to the flashback scenes towards the end that kind of redeemed the movie but then they had to put that ridiculous ending.
