Genre: Romance, Comedy

- Yoo Yeon-seok as Kim Jae-hyun
This movie tells a story about a man and woman who met at a train and somehow spent 24 hours together at Busan. At first the woman dislikes the man because he was such a womanizer, but after series of events she gradually finds him as a good man. As for the man, she might not be just an ordinary one night stand partner.
The main idea of this movie is not something new, you can find any other movies which has the same theme and might be better. Because in my opinion, the plot wasn’t built that nice. There were some questions unanswered until the end. Why Jae-hyun became a womanizer in the first place? Why did he stop playing basketball? Did something happen to him in the past? I was originally thought I would be getting an answer in the end because I clearly heard Senior Kang told Jae-hyun that Kang Jin-chul doesn’t share the same ambition with him to go for NBA. So there must be something behind that made him ambitious for the NBA right? But it seems like they were not planning to give us conclusion.
Despite those plot holes, I can say what makes this movie worth to watch is the acting of the main leads. Honestly I was interested to watch this movie is because I like Moon Chae-won a lot, especially in her drama with Song Joong-ki, The Nice Guy. I do think that she is a great actress and I’m very satisfied with her acting in this movie. She was well matched with Yoo Yeon-seok, they had a good chemistry as a couple in this movie, not to mention that Yoo yeon-seok is a great actor himself.
Since its genre is romantic comedy, you can find many funny and entertaining moments here that would make you laugh all the way. Whenever Jo Jae-yoon appeared on screen I always laugh just seeing his face. I think he was one of the main comedy here because in those 103 minutes of the movie, I don’t think that his role is significant and is often forgotten by Jae-hyun, poor him 😦 But I gotta admit that the plot gets more serious and almost no comedy at all towards the end.
Another thing that I love about this movie is they put Ed Sheeran’s Photograph as one of the main background song. No words can explain how the song was perfect for the movie. I don’t think that it was Ed Sheeran’s version, but I can’t find who made the arrangement of the song for the movie either so just enjoy the song while watching the movie.
If you seek for a light romantic comedy movie for entertainment purpose only, then this movie is worth your time. Otherwise you might find this movie just so-so.
