I Say…

photo27284I think it’s quite a fair movie, contrary to it being tagged “worst” during its release. I was even moved to tears at the last minute. It’s not that I can relate or anything, but there were quite a lot of touching parts in the movie. I mean, who wouldn’t want to turn back time and correct mistakes? Plainly magical, the plot is. But still cute, magical… not crappy magical or exaggerated. Other than that the film is really funny. Ko So Young is a fair actress. She’s not pretty like all the others but she’s OK. I think she was able to make good acting for the character of the older Na Jeong Ju striving to correct the things from her past. Yoo Geon of course, was so good looking in front of the camera. But how come he can’t shed the “Hello, God” image just a bit? Anyway, see it for yourself and know why.

Recommendable, funny movie for Valentine’s…
