  My Sassy Girl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When My Sassy Girl was released throughout East Asia, it became a mega blockbuster hit in the entire region, from Japan to China to Taiwan to Philippines to Hong Kong to Singapore, to the point where it was drawing comparisons to Titanic.
In the final scene, Gyeon-woo and the Girl come full circle when they find out that the one person they have been declining to meet over the years is the one person they have always wanted to see again, the one person that they had always been with before the break-up.
The explanation is that the Girl from the future came back in a time machine (one of the themes in the movie is time travel) and placed the frog in the time capsule to play a prank on Gyeon-Woo.

 My Sassy Girl
My Sassy Girl is one of the biggest box-office hits in Korean film history, and after watching it, I can see why.
As the film runs its course, you understand more about Gyun, yet not a lot is revealed about the girl, and this whole mystery about the 'sassy' girl means that you are enticed into wanting to know more about the outcome of their relationship.
Both of the lead actors are simply brilliant, from the sharp and forceful 'sassy' girl, to the submissive and 'modest' boy, they each have that on-screen chemistry to forge the energy needed to make this film work.

 My Sassy Girl Movie Review by Anthony Leong from MediaCircus.net
And though the girl seems to relish in humiliating and belittling those around her, it becomes clear that underneath the brash exterior is a wounded soul who holds a genuine affection for Kyun-woo.
The film's first half (a fact that is irreverently highlighted with a big bold pastel-colored title) deals with Kyung-woo's initial misadventures with the 'sassy girl' and the absurdity he faces in her company.
In addition to the obvious comic set-pieces revolving around the girl's anti-social tendencies, Kwak has some fun visualizing her female-centered film treatments, such as "Terminator Demolitionist", featuring a female warrior from the future gunning down bad guys à la "The Matrix".

 My Sassy Girl
A rom-com that deviates from the usual trappings of the genre, 'My Sassy Girl' was not only the second biggest film in South Korea during 2001, but it has also garnered a rapturous response at the various film festivals it has featured in around the world.
Kyun-woo is eventually saddled with this inebriated beauty and decides to take her to a motel for the night rather than leave her at the mercy of the stations less savoury clients.
The strength of 'My Sassy Girl' is that the more challenging character of the eponymous heroine is not allowed to descend too much into caricature.

 subway cinema | my sassy girl (2001)
A celebration of the way public vomiting can bring two people together, MY SASSY GIRL was number one at the box office for six straight weeks in Korea and sold over 20,000 tickets per day in Hong Kong.
MY SASSY GIRL more than supports that claim with its off-the-cuff charm, crisis situation humor, and a hardboiled sweetness at its heart.
If empty calories are clogging your movie-going arteries, MY SASSY GIRL will zap you with the defibrillator, scrape the plaque out of your aorta, and send you on your way with a big, fat, grin plastered across your ever-loving mug.

 GuessTheGross.com's My Sassy Girl Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
My Sassy Girl is Korea’s hit comedy about a girl taking charge and leading her boy around by the hornsÂ…quite literally.
The Girl in this film isn’t the standard wallflower, “I’ve got a heavy heart, but I’m going to be brave and act happy” heroine — she’s incredibly outspoken, sticks up for herself and those around her (whether they want it or not), she’s a bit wacky and, oftentimes, a bit of a bitch.
Compared to The Girl, Gyeon-wu seems a bit of a wimp at times, but the strength of her character doesn’t overshadow his and we never forget that the delicate balance of their relationship hinges on what Gyeon-wu will and won’t do for her or let her get away with.

 Korean Movie Review | My Sassy Girl (2001) Jae-young Kwak, Ji-hyun Jun
Kyun-woo, seeing that the girl is unbalanced and standing too close to the edge of the tracks, quickly pulls her away, probably saving her life.
Later in the subway car, the girl causes a scene, but not before turning to Kyun-woo and calling him "Honey," thereby implicating him in her problems (or at least in the other passengers' eyes).
As the tough girl with a heart of gold, she is nearly flawless.

 [KFCC] My Sassy Girl Review
As the relation progresses, Gyeon-woo begins to discover how crazy the girls really is, with all her wacky behaviors, angry attitude and always wanting him to please her the way she wants, even if it mean that Gyeon-woo will pass for a complete idiot in public places or gets beaten by the girl.
Feeling sorry for Gyeon-woo when he gets beaten or humiliated by the girl, but also that a guy can't stay indifferent by that sweet little face that girl can make when she wants to be taken care of.
As for the girl itself, well I never saw a female character as crazy as this, I mean on a realistic level of course.

As the girl headed for the train, Geon-woo followed and continued mentally undressing her with his eyes.
My Sassy Girl is the classic 'opposites attract' type of story, but told with a comedic slant and some very cleverly positioned visual tweaks such as Warner Bros. eye-pops to super-deformed speedy legs.
Prior to My Sassy Girl and NOW being licensed, ComicsOne's only other Korean title had been Mina Hwang's Redmoon, which according to Nicole Curry, "did pretty well at the beginning," but mainly because there was a computer game in the works.

 DVD Times - My Sassy Girl
Although physically the girl (we are never told her name during the film) fits the bill as Gyeon-woo’s type, she is clearly not the kind of girl to bring home to your mother.
The kind of girl who has to butt into other people’s business, she can’t sit at a restaurant without getting into a fight with the next table or having some criticism to make of the clothes they wear.
My Sassy Girl is a charming, funny and well-made comedy that could be a breath of fresh air to anyone who has seen too many Farrelly Brothers films recently or derivations thereof.

 My Sassy Girl - Director's Cut (KOREA 2001)
However, he became inspired by Kim Ho-sik's hugely successful Internet-serial "Yupki Girl", and decided to adapt the story into a film using popstar Cha Tae-hyun and up-and-coming actress Jeon Ji-hyun as the main leads.
It turns out The Girl is not your average student: she hates melodrama and TV tearjerkers, would rather wear sneakers than high heels and has a penchant for punching you in the face for no apparent reason.
Cha Tae-hyun is effective, considering his "punching bag" role is almost as important as the Girl in making the story credible.

 Korean Movie Reviews for 2001: My Sassy Girl, Musa, Friend, Take Care of My Cat, My Wife is a Gangster, Volcano High ...
Unlike Friend, however, My Wife was met with an almost universal hostility by critics and is intensely disliked by many viewers as well (It was the "winner" of the 2001 Ready-Stop Award given to the worst Korean movie of the year).
My Wife is a Gangster in many ways deserves its infamy: it is a bloated, ludicrous, in-your-face blockbuster, rather like a half-pound hamburger, grilled in sizzling animal fat, and served with thickets of French fries and a beer mug full of Jolt Cola.
My roommate and I are still arguing about one, and until either of us learns Korean Sign Language, we'll never really know, since the DVD does not translate the deaf character's dialogue beyond her first scene with Wanee.

 My Sassy Girl [aka Yupgi Girl]
The hero, likeable but perhaps a tad shallow in his preference for quiet, pretty girly girls, doesn't look like a suitable match for anyone with any depth, and we're caught early on thinking this might be a predictable adventure.
Not so, once we meet the heroine: we find her on the train, pissed as a newt (a marvellous phrase from my youth that I'm determined to resurrect), and not exactly presenting at her best.
She's even less appealing when she throws up and calls our hero "Honey" before passing out, since this leads to the passengers assuming he is her boyfriend, and demanding that he clean up.

They then meet again on the train when the girl throws up on an old man’s wig and after that, she faints calling out to Kyun-woo, “Honey...” Kyun-woo, being the nice guy he is, carries the girl into a motel and looks after her, which then ends up being a cop bust-out.
Well, for instance, I loved it whenever the girl bullied the guy -- you rarely see that in movies nowadays -- and once, the girl was wearing high heels and they were hurting her feet so she made Kyun-woo swap shoes and chase her after that.
Ji-hyun was beautiful and that suited the girl, yet she was able to play a character which had both the characteristics of being a violent and mean yet sweet and vulnerable girl who believes in time travel, in her own way.

Since the girl is an aspiring screenwriter, we also imagine the two in several humorous parodies of popular film genres, such as the Terminator-style action movie, the Korean melodrama, and the wu-xia film.
The sense of longing that arises suggests that much of the conflict between them in the first half of the film was born out of a combination of their reluctance to get burned by a soured relationship and their unshakable desire to be in one, and the shift in gears in downright touching.
Apparently, My Sassy Girl is slated to be remade by Dreamworks.

As the audience knows better the girl's true personality (what is behind her strong "mask") and that she actually really cares about him, the guy also shows that he understands the "true her" under the surface.
The girl treats the guy so cruely, yet under these weird circumstances, he understands that that is the way she shows her love.
