Movie Talk: My Sassy Girl

If there’s one thing I wanna say, it’s this: “I will never get tired of watching (and crying because of) this movie.”


My Sassy Girl became famous when I was a little kid… an elementary student who cared about nothing except for kids stuff. So I didn’t care back then. As I grew older, I kept hearing about this movie, about how awesome it is, about how it’s one of the greatest rom-com movies ever, etc. Still, I didn’t give a damn.

But, just last year, I decided to give it a try. A friend of mine gave me a copy of the movie, and I watched it as soon as I got home from the office. And there it started… one of  the most magical 2 hours of my life.

Until now, I can’t pinpoint how the movie made me cry. Hahaha. I’m not a big fan of rom-coms since I tend to brand most comedies as “corny” (well at least the local ones), but this one’s different. I’ve watched and re-watched this movie many times, but it still pinches my heart and prompts tears to come out from my eyes. It makes me bipolar– at one scene I’m laughing so hard, and on the next one, I’m crying like a big baby. Haha.


My Sassy Girl touches my heart and soul in a very unexplainable way. It has the ability to bring out mixed emotions. It has no elaborate sensual scene (unlike most romantic movies… just because that’s their “visual,” something that would entice the audience at first), and that’s one of the reasons why I love this movie. It just goes to show that a film doesn’t need to have long kissing scenes or steamy actions to pass itself as “good and romantic.”

That bond between Gyeon-woo and the girl is indescribable. It’s brutal, but it works. Theirs is a love story that started out weirdly, but ended up perfectly fine. Somehow the kind that makes girls swoon and sigh… wishing to make it their own. Haha.


Plus, I sooooo love this quote from the movie:

Know what fate is? Building a bridge of chance for someone you love.


I’m not much of a believer of fate and destiny, but this movie makes me want to believe in them. 🙂

Job well done to the makers of My Sassy Girl! Only a handful of movies make great impact on me, and this film’s one of them. 🙂

Before you leave my blog (lol), listen to this song. Gah! ❤

Happy blogging (and watching)!
