I freakin love this drama.. Not to exaggerate, but this is waaayyy too good.! 🙂 It had me on the edge the whole time.! You won’t even mind that this drama doesn’t have a romance, at all.

Though many was disappointed that So Ji Sub didn’t really portray Park Ki Young’s character.. It was Kim Woo Young all the way.. Yeah, it would be more enjoyable if we ever see the gullible part of So Ji Sub.. Haha. And he’s been doing serious roles in most of his dramas and movies.! I wanna see him in a more light roles..

As For Lee Yeon Hee.. Many are complaining that she can’t act, but I love her.. I’ve seen all of her dramas and movies and I’ve no complaints at all.. 🙂 I think she can do her part really well..

I love the twists that came about.. 🙂

 

Ghost

Hello Schoolgirl (Hangul: 순정만화/ Sunjeong Manhwa; literally “Romantic Manhwa”) is a 2008 South Korean film. It is based on a 2003 web comic by popular South Korean artist Kang Full (pseudonym of Kang Do-yeong), known under the English title “Love Story.” It stars stars Yoo Ji-tae, Lee Yeon-hee, Chae Jung-an, and Kang-in.

Kwon Yeon-woo is a thirty year old low-level civil servant who works in a district office; quite innocent for his age, he has been on numerous blind dates in an unsuccessful bid to find a wife. After moving into a new place, he begins to encounter a high school girl, Soo-yeong, on his way to work every morning, and she begins to develop feelings for him. Meanwhile, Kang Sook has just started working at the district office straight out of high school, and falls head over heels for older woman Kwon Ha-kyeong.

It is the story of an emotional attachment, between an older guy and a teen girl is almost impossible to bring off nowadays in a Western setting, though in Asia, it’s fairly commonplace.
Popular hunk Yu Ji-tae dials down his normal charisma as Kim Yun-woo, a low-level salaryman who lives in a high-rise. His neighbor, young Han Su-yeong , is a tad rebellious, and they first meet when she borrows his tie to go to school one day.
Their developing friendship is handled with charm and humor in a series of scenes almost totally devoid of regular plotting. Running parallel to their story is another relationship: Yun-woo’s new co-worker, 25-year-old Suk <Kang In, a Super Junior member), falls for a morose, 29-year-old photographer, Ha-gyeong , whom he meets at a metro station. She keeps warning him he’ll be disappointed if he perseveres with his wooing.
Though the two strands only seem tangentially related, it’s later revealed there are more connections between the four protagonists than at first appeared. Wrap-up is typically low-key but emotionally satisfying.
Playing a character only a couple of years younger than she actually is, Lee Yeon-hee (is excellent as the schoolgirl, whether studiously addressing Yun-woo by the honorific “ajeossi” , or determinedly standing up to her conservative mom when she’s caught holding hands with Yun-woo one evening. Suk and Ha-gyeong’s story is less interesting but is solidly played by Gang and Chae.
Hello Schoolgirl is too beautiful for a controversial subject matter. Maybe that is the intention. The hand held cam show the underlying turmoil, but the surface has an untouchable sheen, celebrating the love, but burying the heartache.

I just noticed that Korean actresses are always paired with older actors.. Sometimes, vice versa.. I was eager to see this because of Lee Yeon Hee. 🙂 And yep, a Super Junior member (Kangin) is here..
It’s worth-watching though the story is kind of slow.. you will enjoy it as the story progresses.. 🙂
