A Perfect Match (Joheun saram isseumyeon sogae shikeojwo/좋은 사람 있으면 소개시켜줘 -2002)

A Perfect Match
Eun-Kyung Shin - Kim Hyo-jin
Jun-ho Jeong - Park, Hyeon-su
Hyeong-jin Kong - Jeong Jun
Yeo-jin Kim - Kim Hae-in
Sang-Myeon Park
Yeo-Jeong Jo
Seo-hyeong Kim
Jae-hun Tak
Hyo-eun Hwang

Hyo-Jin is the quietly industrious employee at a Korean dating agency who, while being very talented at finding her clients' their perfect match, finds nothing but a void in her own romantic life. Her ditzy friends are obsessed with finding that special someone though they are too caught up in day-dreams to achieve their goal and Hyo-Jin invents a boyfriend for herself as not to encourage their prying. One of Hyo-Jin's latest and most awkward clients - seemingly distant and disorganised Hyun-Soo - leaves an impression that gets underneath the surface of her professional demeanour. As she tries to match Hyun-Soo up with his dream date she is constantly battling with her own feelings and his foibles while also having to face the scrutiny of her colleagues.

This was a sweet romantic comedy. I've read other reviews about this about how it was typical Korean....blah, blah, blah, blah. I think it was way different than some I've watched. A different scenario, script....whatever. I liked it. A real feel good movie. One of those girls who are down and out and have nobody to love and no one to love them in return. When you have lost all hope, someone unexpected comes into your life and heart and makes it worth to keep trying and going on.

So I don't care what others think. I didn't at least cry with this one...maybe I got a little sad but that was the end.....*smiling*
