Which actually should’ve been titled “In search of Jin Cheol,” lol. Anyhoo, I could’ve sworn that I’ve seen the actor, Yoo Yoon Seok, in another drama or something, but looking up his bio, it doesn’t seem I have. Moon Chae Won I’ve seen many times before though. The premise of them meeting up on a train and graduating to coupledom sounded cute, and I was really in the mood for a short movie.
However, the movie fell flat for me. I couldn’t really see him as a player who breaks hearts, but more of a man of a series of relationships that didn’t work out for one reason or another. Moon Chae Won, otoh, I could see as a girl in a “going nowhere 10 year relationship,” but I didn’t feel the necessary connection as to why she hung in there that long. Her boyfriend, mind you, was only on screen for a hot 2 mins, but Korean writers usually live for the breakup scene! Had it been an angst filled breakup, I could’ve believed her reason for hanging in there 10 yrs.
The leads had some chemistry, but not enough to root for them moving forward. He was a great kisser though—— so my heart jumped .5 on the Richter scale……everything else was very formulaic.
Guess I gotta watch So Ji and Han Hyo Joo in “Always” again, lol….Heard So Ji got married last year! I’m truly out of the loop!
