    So, this isn't sad AT ALL, but it has that Korean charm mixed in with the adorable OST that makes it tolerably nice to watch, despite the complete lack of chemistry between like...ANY of the characters.

    "<i>Love hurts</i>." <i>Sad Movie</i> is basically two things: a strange film and one of the best dramas I've ever seen. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast - an authentic who's-who of South Korean cinema - that includes Jung Woo-Sung (<i>A Moment to Remember</i>), Lim Su-jeong (<i>A Tale of Two Sisters</i>), Shin Min-a (<i>A Bittersweet Life</i>) or Cha Tae-hyun (<i>My Sassy Girl</i>), the film is a collection of four stories that all intersect at some point, although they remain basically unrelated. <a href="http://s172.photobucket.com/albums/w25/EarthlyAlien/?action=view¤t=101474714_13c044fed7_o.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w25/EarthlyAlien/101474714_13c044fed7_o.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> First off, there's Jin-Woo, a handsome, noble, but foolish firefighter dating a sign language interpreter named Su-Jung. Su-Jung lives with her sister, the cheerful and gorgeous Su-Eun who works at a theme park as a Raggedy Ann-like Snow White. Su-Eun has a crush on a portrait painter named Sang-Gyu. The only problem is that she's a deaf mute with a scar on the side of her cheek, which prevents her from approaching him without wearing her oversized mask and costume. Then there's Ju-Yung, a working mother whose commitment to her job causes a rift between she and her lonely son Hui-Chan. Things begin to change when Ju-Yung is caught in a car accident and sent to the hospital. While his mother is laid up in a hospital bed, Hui-Chan stumbles upon his mother's diaries and begins to learn the truth about his conception, birth, and early childhood. Soon, he begins to bond with his mother, just as she discovers that she's suffering from cancer. Along the way, Hui-Chan crosses paths with Ha-Seok, an unemployed shlub who makes extra money as a human punching bag for a local boxer. His girlfriend has just dumped him and, after a chance encounter with a woman breaking up with her boyfriend, Ha-Seok hatches a scheme to start a "Separation Agency" that will break up relationships when one party is too scared to do it face-to-face. All these characters will eventually cross paths, even if they don't meet. If I were to tell you that this film will bring tears to your eyes, that wouldn't be saying much. I mean, look at the title... no, it's the <i>way</i> in which the film is sad that makes it so brilliant. Imagine a film in which likeable characters encounter life-altering problems, struggle to overcome them, and then seem to actually make some headway, only to have all their hopes eventually dashed in a swift and brutal fashion. If you can do that, you'll have some inkling of what <i>Sad Movie</i> is all about. Simply put, it's reality put on screen. Don't get me wrong, the film isn't two hours of sadness and depression. Quite the opposite, actually. The majority of the film is actually loaded with cute, consistently funny moments, mixed with romance - a fusion that Asian cinema can pull off better than all else. It just rejects any kind of happy ending. It will entertain you for more than an hour, you'll even wonder "how the hell is this a <i>sad movie</i>?", but the final act will feel like a God-damn stab in the heart. That's what'll make you cry like a baby. A sense of betrayal and/or shock will be impossible to avoid, but in the end, hopefully, you'll understand director Kwon Jong-Gwan's point: life isn't about happy endings. It's about pain. The smiles, hugs and kisses are nothing but spaces in-between.
