An super-cool handsome guy
is going out with me! But his blood type is "B"...
what the hell!
Ha-mi is a college student who believes in predestined love.
One day she meets Young-bin on the street and instantly feels
that he is the one. However, Young-bin is such a heartthrob
and his blood type is "B", which is believed as
the must-avoid type by many women! Despite her cousin's objection,
Ha-mi falls for him because of his aggressive wooing.
get ready, this is YOUR movie if you are in your teens or
early twenties! The fanciful girl-meet-boy story might have
many sending text messages to phone numbers unknown to them;
just to try if this magic works for them too. Who knows this
might be the very catalyst to your dream of finding your very
soul mate in the ever most romantic way…
if your blood type is B, it is probably in your best interest
to pass this movie and let your girl watch it with her girlfriend(s).
If you insist on watching, an enactment of one of the scenes
might just take place. The Type-B boyfriend dragged his girlfriend
out of the movie theatre because he found the movie uninteresting;
even though the girlfriend enjoyed it. This is what Type B
boyfriends do; a display of ultimate selfishness. Type-B guys
are also said to be quite creative, but capricious, conceited,
selfish, and sulky.
Lee (Ha-mi’s cousin and flatmate) radiates through her
role and often stole the limelight from the main leads. Her
strong discouragement of Ha-mi seeing Young-bin, stemmed from
her unfortunate personal experiences with Type-B guys and
detail research of the characteristics of the different blood
types males. Though exaggerating, her acting does not irritate
and brings about the laughter.
dating idea stood out strongly; enjoys a sky scraper’s
elevator ride in superman style. Guys can learn plenty from
the various romantic tactics showcased in the movie. Silly
ideas but they would work on girls, nonetheless.
is a pity that some of the humour is lost through the Chinese
translation. Language, being an amazing system of communication;
does not allow itself to be manipulated to our wish in this
Dong-gun might have just saved himself with his impressive
delivery of “And I Love You So”. It was a pity
he announced recently that he would not sing professionally
again. Han Ji-hye redeemed herself with sweetness and innocence
when compared to the familiar role of an irksome sister in
the Summer Scent, a Korean drama serial. By and large, Lee
Dong-gun and Han Ji-hye had continued their success from Sweet
18. This is a must-watch for the candy floss lovers; light
and saccharine sweet. But if you are looking for more serious
stuff, check out Old Boy instead.
