Naesarang Ssagaji (My Love Ssagajy: 100 Days with Mr. Arrogant)

She ain't heavy, she's a minor.

Naesarang Ssagaji (My Love Ssagajy: 100 Days with Mr. Arrogant)

Starring: Kim Jae-won (Romance), Ha Ji-won (Memories of Bali/Love, So Divine)
Director: Shin Don-yup

This should have been a bad movie. The booger flinging, the masturbation jokes, the spit soup, ranges from whathafuck to blech! But I enjoyed. I enjoyed it a lot. Originally an internet novel, the storyline is see-through flimsy right from the outset. A high school knucklehead accidentally causes a car accident and the dickhead owner demands that she become his slave for 100 days to pay off the damage. Pacing is quirky quick, and the jokes, ah, the jokes. Sublimely irreverent. Haven't cried this much since Old Yeller. Of course, love ruins everything and humor takes a backseat in the last half hour. The leap to innocence is uncovincing and trite it almost feels like an apology for the brutal naughtiness of its early parts when, really, none is needed. ***
