A smug, aloof dentist loses her job in Seoul and ends up opening an office in a coastal village where she meets Mr Hong, the enigmatic village handyman. She, of course, looks down upon him from the start, but because it is a village, their lives become intertwined in unexpected ways. The character of the dental assistant is a standout. There is even a neat reference to Ms Eom (Uhm)'s movie 'Marriage is a Crazy Thing' for which she won the Korean equivalent of an Oscar in 2002.
This is a true gem, motion picture comedy at its best: Clever subtle script; brilliant direction, editing, acting and photography; outstanding music. It bears repeated viewing. In the same league as 'My Sassy Girl', 'Someone Special', 'Too Beautiful to Lie', 'My Tutor Friend', and 'Scout'.
