is a timid guy still in college for 7 years, unemployed and
dependent on his family. To top that off, Gu-chang has never
had a girlfriend or even kissed a girl before. One day, Gu-chang
meets Anni, a bubbly girl in the school and sparks fly instantly.
One night out, just as things start to seem promising, Gu-chang
sees Anni from a completely different point of view and realize
that there is more to her than meets the eye.
Jeong Ryeo-won is the type of girl who is not exactly
a striking beauty but has that sweetness aura that will make
you embrace her as well. Playing the part of Yuri who developed
a spilt personality after a trauma, she has finally debut
with flying colours on the silver screen after her appearances
in dramas such as “My Lovely Sam-Soon”.
or better known as Anni got to know a guy named Gu-Chan (the
affable but questionably looking Bong Tae-gyu) after he accidentally
picked up Anni’s wallet. Gu-Chan is a timid, loud-mouth
guy who is relying on his divorced sister for a living and
is still studying college after 7 years. Turns out he has
never fallen in love his entire life too. So when he met the
bubbly Anni, love undeniably blossom between the both of them.
any typical romance comedies, the movie moves along with some
comic moments between Anni and Gu-Chan until Anni becomes
an entirely person overnight. Her personality turned violence
and she calls herself Hanni.
“2 Faces of my Girlfriend” maintains the synergy
set by the first act without injecting too much poignant and
teary moments. A common flaw found in Korean productions.
Other than a moving flashback, there are some cute CG rendering,
short animation sequences in addition to the likeable pair
up of Ryeo-won and Tae-gyu who basically shines every 117
minutes of the movie.
being an easy rom-com date movie, it lies a far deeper meaningful
message that is to really love a person is to set him or her
go. Perhaps fate might already have someone for you in mind.
Your very own lighthouse awaits you.
SPECIAL FEATURES :
This DVD comes with 2 trailers and a MTV. Ironically,
the 5 minutes making of and 15 minutes interview segment do
not come equipped with any subtitles. We can only guess that
the cast and crew are very enthusiastic and pleased during
the production process. There's also trailers of "Ah
Long Pte Ltd", "Rule #1" and "Escape from
I have no complains for the visual and the Korean audio track.
The lovey-dovey soundtrack has a soothing sweet feel to it.
