My Sassy Girl: The American Version

My Sassy Girl

So, this is the American Version. I won’t say many stuff. Just the basics. The girl isn’t a hellion. The guy’s story telling sucks. They don’t fit the roles. No chemistry or love can be feel. Their 10 rules suck. I just don’t like it. And, the girl was gone for only one year, and she’s late for only a day… not really that romantic. And yes, I’m being unfair because I’m comparing it. But even if I’m not doing that, it’s really not that great. Okay but not great. This is supposed to be a romantic comedy (right?) but it’s neither those two.

So, to be fair- it would get a 7/10. See, I’m being generous.

My Sassy Girl: The Korean Version

It’s been a while since I did a post about an live action. I just watched the Hollywood adaptation of Sassy Girl and I just can’t help remembering the original and well, comparing it too. So, anyway, this is for the Korean Version. I must say it’s the best adaptation so far.

My Sassy Girl

This movie is from a series of love letter posted in the ‘net, then adapted to a novel, then to at least 3 movies, 1 drama and a manhwa. The literal translation is That Bizarre Girl.

When I first heard of this movie, I just have to watch it. When I did, i fell in love with it. First- the actors. They are just perfect for it. I felt every possible feeling- love, sadness, pain and happiness. They’re just great! The girl is really a tyrant and the guy looks really clueless and everything. Second- the scenes. Well, I can’t tell you how much I love the scenes. The director is really good and even the script writer. Ok, I guess everyone who helped were amazing. When I saw the American film, though I know it’s sure to be different, I just had to compare it. And trust me, the whole plot is just better and different from the American film.

So, what I just want to say is this film is just so sweet, so addictive, so enchanting and just so heartbreaking than the American film. The 10 rules made me cry and I just suddenly realized… maybe there are soulmates.

So, scores: Overall- 9/10.
