  • 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'.

    You know how it goes, and how it ends, this is no exception. Somehow, maybe because they speak korean, I watched it through and even enjoyed it a bit. Maybe it was because of the Hye-ju and Mi-seon? Or the friendly townsfolk?

    Hong Ban-jang is truly a strange fellow. The way he treats Yun Hye-ju is not a good way to pick up someone, or treat someone in general. OK, she has a bit of that big city arrogance, but she never did deserve this kind of behavior..

    Anyway all ends good, she gets accepted in the community and she gets a surprise of both her own and Hong sshi.
