Rating: 2/5
To tell you the truth I was never really interested in this movie, even though people said it is a great one. But I admit that it has some great points and even similar things have been used later – like the beginning fantasy part  in “Playful Kiss” and same 100 day contract in “Marry me, Mary”.
But as Yanne told me "This movie is only good when you are a newbie to Asian dramas and movies".
