This is actually quite a good film in its genre, and the three stars I give it are a commendation. The film is well constructed, the directing follows an HBO/Pushing Up Daisies style of presentation which you either like or hate but which I liked here, the script is amusing, the characters are likeable even if at times maddening (viz the Jordan Roark character played by Elisha Cuthbert), and the actors do a good job. The film has plenty of laughs and lots of twists and turns and whilst the ending is pat and sentimental, it just about stands up given the genre. The net effect is of a charming little tale interestingly told. So why haven't we heard about this film, which deserves to be seen? The answer is that it was sold as a remake, even taking on the dreadful title of the original Korean film. But it is nothing like the original and should have been renamed and sold in its own right. In almost every conceivable way, this film is better put together than the original: for a start it makes sense, which the original (which I actually saw first, on a recommendation) doesn't; next up is that both are romcoms, yet the original lasts 150-odd minutes (with an interminable last 40 minutes) and the remake lasts a very digestible 90 minutes. And in structural terms, every change to the original is a change for the better, whether it's the length, the invented flatmate and changed home situation, the elimination of absurdities like the jailing, the change from situation-comedy to gags, the explanation of what is happening or has happened, etc. The thing that is missing from this film that the original had is the charisma of the two lead characters (Cha Tae-Hyun and Jeon Ji-Hyun), who are well-known as pop stars/teenage idols across Asia, and the mannered, manic style of acting used in films from that region. Unless you are addicted to either one or the other of these, I would not bother to seek out the original and stick with this quietly charming film.
