my scary girl

kimchi fridge...


dae-woo (park yong-woo) is an amiable, if shy young man, who isn't getting any younger and has been unlucky in love. when the rather foxy, if slightly strange, mi-na (choi kang-hee) moves in to his apartment block his friend pushes him into asking her out; she accepts and the two soon find themselves falling for each other. however, with mi-na's annoying flatmate and a troublesome ex-boyfriend arriving in town, things become a little rocky. and, rockier still when dae-woo starts delving into mi-na's past...

this is a strange, nicely dark, oddly light-hearted, off-kilter rom-com, that i remember enjoying quite a lot. it's almost a year since i watched it and i'm kinda struggling to remember the ins and outs, but i do remember thinking that it was a very pleasant little surprise.

good stuff...

the dvd is hk$39 from buyoyo.com
