K-Movie: Spy Girl

About: Another Korean movie that I really enjoyed! From the summary, the story seems more serious than it actually is. The poster also makes it seem like it will be an adult story, but it isn't. It is college aged students figuring out life. It is a comedy, but what really makes this story beautiful is the chemistry between Go Bong and Gye Soon. The sweetness of their relationship overflows and both characters are lighthearted, sincere and dorky at times.

Lots of action is packed in this movie, but the lack of seriousness in the spy is surprising. There is a sense of an ironic mood to the acting, which I surprisingly find to be a relief since it fluffs up the plot.

Although I was a tiny bit disappointed by the lack of actual spy scenes, this turned out to be a great rom-com. Highly recommended for fans of the actor Gong Yoo,  who was the male lead in Coffee Prince, and in the currently airing drama, Big. Light, cute and great leads!

Summary: (MySojuGo-bong has a huge crush on Gye-soon who works at a fast food restaurant. He puts her photo on their internet and she becomes the hottest girl in town. But she is frustrated because she is a spy from North Korea to catch a betrayer...

Rating: 4 outta 5

I also recommend My Mighty Princess if you enjoy this. Both have fairly fluffy plots and amazingly sweet characterization.
