very ordinary couple

A workplace relationship movie gone stale with hints of crazy Venus and Mars flick.  It culminated in we-are-meant-to-be-happy-together note, but the path going there and how it was narrated, I didn’t enjoy.  It felt like the movie was in confusion on acting on the emotions or focusing on the conflict.  It ended without me being immersed on it.  Not ugly, not plain but the chemistry, biology, physics and all the sciences needed to conspire a romance based film were out of focus and most of the time missing in action.

I took a deep breath after I was done watching the movie, but I really wasn’t able to connect.  There was a couple who fell in love, broke up and then got back together.  It was aiming I think to ask the question “Will you get back with your ex-lover if he slept with another person?”  The love couple answered it in the end by staying together but it felt like they just covered it with the lead man throwing a fit when he remembers his girl slept with another man and on cue, the man will be in the scene to accept his beatings.

It was not appealing for me but if you really like Lee Min Ki, maybe you can just focus on his face when it becomes boring and pray that you will endure the non-existing drive of the story to trigger the positive emotions of the viewers.
