My Sassy Girl is a South Korean romantic comedy released in 2001, directed by Kwak Jae-yong. The movie revolves around the romantic relationship between Gyeon-woo (Tae-Hyun Cha), a college student, and The Girl (Jun Ji-hyun), a young woman whom he meets by chance one night on a subway train. In-mun Kim plays Gyeon-woo's father. The movie begins with Gyeon-woo narrating his failed attempts to find love. While on a train, he falls asleep and wakes up to find the girl sitting next to him, who then proceeds to vomit on him. Thus, their story begins. When The Girl sobered up, she demands Gyeon-woo to buy her food, and the two of them then proceed to spend the rest of the day together. It turns out that The Girl is a bit unconventional; she drinks, swears, and has a quick temper. Despite her prickly personality, Gyeon-woo is drawn to her and is fascinated by her unpredictable behavior.

As their relationship proceeds, The Girl slowly begins to open up to Gyeon-woo about her past and the sorrows she carries with her. Gyeon-woo, in the meantime, tries to help The Girl with her emotional turmoil, and both of them slowly fall in love, despite the odds.

The plot is simple but engaging, and the pacing of the movie is perfect. The main characters are charming, and their chemistry is hilarious and sweet. The Girl's quick-witted tongue and Gyeon-woo's clueless charm complement each other perfectly. The movie's central message revolves around the idea that love can be found in the most unexpected situations, and that love can heal even the deepest wounds. However, the movie is not just a simple romantic comedy; it also has a poignant side to it, with The Girl's emotional depth and Gyeon-woo's loyalty and patience contributing nicely to the emotional depth of the movie.

One of the best features of the movie is its soundtrack. The catchy songs, especially the theme song "I Believe," complement the scenes perfectly and elevate the movie's lighthearted tone. The cinematography is well done as well, with Kwak Jae-yong's direction lending the movie a nice mixture of light-hearted and poignant scenes.

Overall, My Sassy Girl is an excellent romantic comedy that manages to balance humor and emotion perfectly. The movie was a box office hit in South Korea when it was released, and the popularity of the film even led to an American remake, starring Elisha Cuthbert and Jesse Bradford. However, the original Korean version remains a classic and is worth watching, especially for those who are fans of romantic comedies.

My Sassy Girl is a 2001 drama with a runtime of 2 hours and 3 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 8.0.
