Movie Info

Director Jang Jin's first romantic comedy presents a rare love story between a once famous baseball player and his ardent lover. Dong Chiseong (played by Jeong Jaeyeong), a star baseball pitcher in high school and college, hurts his shoulder, and is replaced as an outfielder. What is worse, he experiences a constant nose-bleeding and hears from the doctor that he is only given three months to live due to a malignant tumor in his lung. Deeply depressed, he goes to a bar to drink away his sorrows until he falls asleep. A pretty bartender Han Iyeon (Lee Nayeong), finds him passed out and picks him up and carries him in a box. One day, as Chiseong heads home, he hears a familiar story on a radio program about someone named the "Writing Princess" who described how she once carried a man in a box to a hotel room. It turns out that Iyeon's chance encounter with the struggling player at the bar was far from accidental. She apparently has lived close to Chiseong and monitored him closely over the past 10 years, suffering from an unrequited love.

Audience Reviews for Aneun yeoja (Someone Special) (A Girl I Know)


The camera is occasionally jerky on purpose, but I can't figure out what that purpose was. Aside from that, the film is well made - vibrant colors, clean, pretty, and quaint... and really LONG. The story holds interest as a sweet romance. Like most korean films, this one moves somewhat slow and is full of moving drama meant to tug some tears out of you mixed with light comedy. It's actually a little over the top with the drama (as most Korean movies are), but it's still quite captivating and enjoyable.
