I blame "Il Mare" for this. I re-watched it Thursday night. It's my goddamn gateway drug. Now I'm gleefully trolling the internet for good Korean movies. So far I've seen "The Classic" and "...ing" and bits of "A Moment to Remember" and "My Love, the Asshole" (or "100 Days with Mr. Arrogant," I like the original title, personally) and why are Korean movies so GODDAMN SAD!? I've yet to see one that I didn't bawl over like a baby. Jesus.

ETA: FFFFFFF UUUUUU KOREAN CINEMA. ARE THERE NO MOVIES WHERE PEOPLE DON'T DIE??? *bawls at the end of "Daddy Long Legs"*

IL MARE! That was such a cute movie!

What is My Love, the Asshole about?

I love that movie. It's just so awesome (and on youtube, thank god.)

"My Love, the Asshole" is about this young high school girl who gets dumped before her "100th day Anniversary" (I guess that's a thing in Korea?) and when she kicks a stray soda can on her way home from school, it hits a guy who's driving a sports car in the head and he crashes into a wall. He demands she pay $3000 to fix his car, she declines and runs away (leaving her wallet behind). He then starts to stalk her and force her into indentured servitude and makes her do horrible things and then she falls in love. I don't know how it works out, I didn't get that far. It was awful, but not in the fun way that dramas are. I just liked the name, I really wouldn't recommend watching it.

Witch Yoo-Hee (or Witch's Amusement, it's apparently a pun) did it much better, but the gender roles were reversed. And no one was in high school.
