Average Rating: (out of 5 ratings)
My Sassy Girl is an extremely successful Korean movie (2001): not only did the movie earn not less than six different awards but it was also made to an American remake, a Japanese TV series and a Bollywood production. The story begins with a male college student Gyeon-woo (Cha Tae-Hyun) saving a drunk girl (Jun Ji-hyun) from falling under the train. This accident sparkles a strange and abusive relation with the regularly drunk Girl, who is never named in the entire film, being a true Xanthippe for the all-enduring Gyeon-woo. The characters separate and reunite for a number of times, passing through romantic ups and downs. Only later on does Gyeon-woo learns about the reasons for the Girl's behaviour: he reminds her of her late boyfriend. As the time passes the Girl starts to realize how much does Gyeon-woo mean for her. Surprisingly it turns out that the dead boyfriend's mother is Gyeon-woo's aunt that tried to match him with the Girl. The movie ends with Gyeon-woo and the Girl going to the bar together.
