My Sassy Girl (2001) - full transcript

Based on a series of true stories posted by Ho-sik Kim on the Internet describing his relationship with his girlfriend. These were later transformed into a best-selling book and the movie follows the book closely. It describes the meeting of Kyun-woo (Cha) and an unnamed girl. Kyun-woo is shamed into assisting the girl because the other passengers mistakenly think she is his girlfriend. Once he helps her, Kyun-woo develops a deep sense of responsibility for her which enables him to tolerate (somehow) the girl's abuses. - stop by if you're interested in the nutritional composition of food

Exactly two years ago today,

she and I buried a time capsule here.

We promised to meet here

two years later, today,

but she hasn't come yet.

I'm going to wait.

Here we go.

Please don't move.

Wait a minute.


Oh, auntie.

Don't worry, I will come.

I'm really sorry. Yes, I'm coming.

Sorry, I'm almost on my way.

I'm having my photo taken. Bye.


Are you ready?

Here we go.

One, two...

My parents wanted a daughter,

so they raised me like one.

So I thought I was a girl until I was seven.

I had to go to the women's public bath, too.

As I got older,

I thought my penis would get smaller and disappear.

But it was the opposite.

First Half

He hasn't changed at all.
- No, I'm a real man now.

Whatever you say!

Do you really think civil work in the army

makes you a man?

What are you laughing at?

My job was tougher than you could imagine.

I worked near the border to the north...

Who are you kidding?

Never mind. Anyway, welcome back home.

Hey, that girl,
she's just my type.

When I see my type, I can't help it.

I need to hit on her.

Who's interrupting me?

Hello? Who is this?

Your mother, you bastard.
- Oh, Mom...

Why aren't you at your aunt's house?

I'm leaving soon.

What's that noise in the background?

Keep quiet! It's my mom!

Make sure you pay a visit.

It's been over a year since you saw her.

That long?

You know she feels lonely after losing her son last year.

She says you resemble him.

She'll be so glad to see you.

Still there?

We don't look alike.

Plus, I hate when she rubs my face and kisses me.

Uncle does, too.

She'll introduce you to a girl. Hey!

I know the type she likes.

I want to meet a girl like the ones in romantic comic books,

that is the type of girl I wanna meet.

But on that day...

She's my type, but I don't like her.


Drunk girls disgust me.

Hey, get up!

Offer your seat to the elderly!



And, don't wear pink.


I'm not...


I don't know her.

Your girlfriend is completely drunk.
You handle this!

I'm not...

Think I'm stupid?

Come here!

Are you laughing?

Why didn't you look after her?

Hurry and do something!

What are you doing?

I'm sorry.

Let me help with cleaning expenses.

Forget it.

Just take care of her.

Nothing's there when you need it.

Where did all those motels go?

I hate being with a drunk girl.

But carrying one on my back is even worse.

Wow, your honey's wasted.

No, it's not my fault.

Of course it is. I know everything.

You see, we're engaged.

Western or Korean style?

Give me any room.

Room 405.

None on the first floor?
- Fourth floor!

You forgot to check in.

It's 40,000 won, kid.

40,000 won?

What? Find another place then.

Count it.


This phone's owner?

She's sleeping beside me.

What? Here?

Where we are?

The Uk-su motel near Bupyung station.

Better wash and leave fast.

Hands in the air!

What are you doing?

Hands in the air!

Take it, and share it among you!
And eat one a piece, okay?

Yes, boss.

You have a problem with us?

What are you looking at?
Look away.

Gyeon-woo, you can leave.

Did you go to Bupyung?

Yes, I did.

Where did you sleep?

Your aunt said you didn't come!
You're lying to me!

What happened to your sweater?

I'm such a poor guy.

All this because of a drunk girl.

I wanna die.

You asked if I went to Bupyung!

I did, but not to see auntie!


Come here!

Bastard! Wait till you come back!

Know me now, right?
I'm your typical student.

An engineering major.

My studies?
I'm smart, but I never study.

My parents can prove that.

You're smart like me, but studying is your problem.

Since you inherited your brain from me,

you'll get good grades if you study harder, idiot.

Up four points in three years.

You call this a report card?

Since you inherited your brain from your mother,

you'll get good grades if you study harder.

If you raise kids, never tell them they're smart.

They'll never study.

My goals?

Haven't thought about it yet.

You understand now?

I'm a hopeless student.


Who are you, bastard?

What? Who's calling?

Why were you naked in a motel with me?

Come out to Bupyung station now!

How could she do this?

I went to jail and got beaten with a vacuum for her.

Excuse me.

This is you?

Follow me.

Get over here.

What do you wanna eat?

Cherry jubilee...

Mango Tango or Shooting Stars...

Jamonka Almond's good, too.

I'll just have a Love Me.


Wanna die?

Drink coffee.

Two coffees.

You pay for it.

Tell me.
What happened last night?

Well, it's...
You were drunk, so...

Don't stumble and speak clearly!

You see.
You were drunk and staggering at the subway station.

I saved you from the train.

I thought maybe this girl was a snake.

Pretending to be drunk and vomiting

to take advantage of me
in a state of confusion.

So I called you honey?

That's right.

I kind of remember that.

You showered to wash off vomit and sweat,
and the police came?

That's right.

Would you believe that, too?

With a girl like this, you need to show her who's boss.

So I did that, right?


Sorry, for the delay.

When she's not drunk,

she's just my type.


you look prettier and livelier than yesterday.

Are you mocking me?

No, I'm not.

Then are you hitting on me?

I don't want to date you.

We're not destined for each other.

Throw the trash away and follow me.

Damn it.

I think she's a heavy drinker.

You order.

Kimchi soup and Soju, please.

Eat Golbangee.

Then you should order.

Hey. Stop whining.

Golbangee, please.

Let's go somewhere fun later.

I know what that means.
A motel?

Are you rich?
- Of course.

How much will you give us?
- We'll see, don't worry.

You kids are prostituting, huh?

Why'd you order Golbangee?
Eat something else!

What's it to you?
Mind your own business.

We're just having a drink with some friends.
What's wrong?

You take friends to a motel?

How old are you kids?

Old enough to drink.
Mind your own business!

Think I'm doing this
'cause you're drinking?

Show me your ID. You, too.

What's with you?

Show it, now!

This sucks.

She's a vicious chick.
No matter how pretty she is,

I'd be too embarrassed to be with her.

Who are you to butt in
other people's business?

Don't you have a daughter?

No, but I could make you one.

Who the hell do you think you are?

How dare you, you wanna fight?
Come on, I'll show you!

Don't live like that!

Catch up with the girls!

Have a drink and calm down.

Seeing a girl cry makes me sad for some reason.

She's more attractive the closer I look at her.

Do you blow your nose on this?


Please stop crying.

The handkerchief's mine.

To be honest,

I broke up with my boyfriend yesterday.

Excuse me.

Wake up, please!

Your fiancée's wasted again?

What now?

Sign you in like before, right?


Hey mister, have any medicine for alcohol?

No, you buy it.

I saw her lips.

Her white neck...


I saw her breast, too.


while watching her sleep like a baby,

it may be forward, but it occurred to me...

I want to heal her sorrow.

Give me some water.

Why am I here?

You see...

I'm sorry,

but I saw your ID, and you're twenty-four.
A year younger than me.

So be a bit more respectful.

So what are you gonna do?
- Nothing...

Give me the towel.

Yes. You see, I'm a year older.

Then talk like friends. Yeah?


- In the bathroom.

Our relationship is so peculiar.

We met only three days ago

and slept twice in a motel.

That's how our relationship began.

Lee Hyung-chul.
- Present.

Jeun Mi-young.
- Here.

Kang Man-gyu.


Is he absent?
- No, no! I'm here!

Then answer right away.

Lee Jung-min.
- Here.

Gu Seol-soo.
- Yes, I'm here.


How about a break?

You're right.
Let's take a break.

We continue in 5 minutes.

Let's go.

Go where?
Class isn't over yet.

Don't be a coward.
He called roll, right?

Let's go.

I can't.
I can't miss this class.

Kill me instead.

All right.

Who is she? She's pretty.


Doesn't matter.
A girl needs to act pretty.

But she's still pretty.
Nice body, too.

Who's Gyeon-woo?

It's me, sir.

I won't mark you absent so you can leave.

Pardon me?

I said leave.


Wasn't that girl your girlfriend?

So go see her.

Thank you, sir.

Oh, Gyeon-woo.

If you can, raise it with her.

It worked!

What did you tell him?

That I'm getting an abortion, and you're the father.


No, no! Professor, it's not true!

She wanted to be a scriptwriter,
so she kept writing stories.

She called them synopses.

To get me into the mood,
she took me to the park to read them.

Reading her synopses was stressful.

If I miss anything, I'm dead.

Wanna die?

Finish reading it.

I will.

How could you throw the butt here?

Pick it up!

And why did you wear that color?

Then what about you?

Don't wear the same color as me!

The heroine is tough, like the Terminator.

The year is 2137.

Villains kidnap her lover and travel to the present.

I don't know why.

And to save her lover,

she travels in a time machine to the present.

They have to kiss in the end.

This isn't a melodrama.
It's an action movie.

You don't know movies.

Koreans like melodramas.


Know what novel touched us
when we were teenagers?

'Shower' by Hwang Sun-won.

It shaped our people's sensibility in their teens.

Koreans like sad movies all because of 'Shower'.

Shower? What's sad about it?

It's sad when she asked

to be buried in clothes reminiscent of her love.

I couldn't sleep for a week.

The ending sucks.

Gotta change it.


It's sad.

Her family couldn't afford to pay for her medicine.

Their family line is broken now.

But you know,

she must have been an extraordinary girl.


This was her last request:

When I die, please bury me with my loving friend.


To bury him alive, even.

Oh, my gosh.

- What's the matter?
- What's wrong?

This is wrong! This is wrong!

This is wrong!

Please. Don't!

I beg you, please!

Bury him!

They bury him alive.

Isn't it sad?

I must be hurt still.

I think...

I'll never get over him.

How deep could it be?

I don't know.

go in the water.

I wanna know how deep it is.

Come on.

Help me! Help me!

Wow, it's deep.

I can't swim!

Yes, it's deep...

My mind was getting blurry.

At that moment...

Heard you got a girlfriend.

Introduce me.

- Really?
- I'm serious.

Is she pretty?

Have you kissed her?


Gonna introduce us or what?

What are you looking at?

See that girl over there?

She's my girlfriend from today.
Got it?


Excuse me...

Hey, baby!

Are you free? Hey?

Gyeon-woo? What did you call me?


Hey! Come here.

How could a coincidence like this happen?

...reportedly say there is a runaway soldier...


You call a wrong number or the dial is not in service.

Please call again.

You call a wrong number or the dial is not in service.

Please call again.

Okay, guys, let's get drunk!

Since I was drunk,

I made the decision,

to take revenge on her.

If I'm out cold at Bupyung station

then she'll have to carry me on her back.

This stop is Bupyung station...

Hey, kid. Wake up. Wake up.

Come on, wake up.

Where am I?

I'm at Inchon station.
Be here in 30 minutes.

Wake up. Get up, idiot.

Go away, buttbrain.

Look at me you bastard!

Get up!


How are you?

Oh, how is it going?

What did you say?
Go away, buttbrain?

You got a bad mouth.

I'll set you straight the gangster's way.

Get down, on your head!

Get up!

Sit down.

Get up.

Sit down.

Roll right. Roll left.

Do it right. Keep going!

What's going on there?
Stop fooling around.

Hey! You low-life thieves.

Keep quiet!
- What, officer?

What did you say?
Low-life thieves?

Want some of this?

No thanks.
- Try it. It's delicious.

I don't want to.

Pay attention to your elders.

Eat it, buttbrain.

I told you no.
How many times did I tell you?

Am I your toy?
Leave me alone you petty thieves!

Stop toying with me, you jerks!
It's humiliating!

I've had enough!

Did you sleep well?

Keep quiet!

Thank you. Thank you.

Do that again, and you're dead.

What? Are you free, baby?

Your English is good, too.

Better behave!

Taste good?

It's so delicious.

If I sleep out, Mom beats me with whatever's in her hand.

If she's sweeping, it's a broom.

If she's cleaning, it's a vacuum.

When I'm lucky, it's a cucumber or eggplant.

So I have to come at the right time.

You're not looking at dirty pictures, are you?

Of course not, Dad.
You don't trust me?

Of course.

Time for bed.

Good night, Dad.

Hello, Gyeon-woo.
My birthday's in two days.

You're dead if you forget.
Got it?

And since I like you so much,
better make me smile like this.

Got it?

I got it.

Her birthday.

If I prepare nothing, she may murder me.

I have an idea!

Before going to the service,

I worked in a theme park.

So this is my plan.

At midnight, I'll be alone with her in the park.

It'll be completely dark all around us.

One by one, the lights to the merry-go-round flick on.

And I take her to the carousel.

I raise my arms up, and her birthday song starts.

Then all the lights turn on and it moves.

There will be lights and music.

And there will be fireworks, too.
Isn't it fantastic?

She'll be thrilled.

I gave 200,000 won to my friends working there.

Jump over here?
- Yeah. We have to.

I've always wanted to come here at night.

It's my birthday, not yours.

Come on, let's just try.

I'll go up first and help you.

Oh, there's a step here.

Take my hand!


Answer me!

I'm leaving. I'm leaving.

Answer me! Gyeon-woo!

You're dead when I find you!

Wanna die?

Why didn't you answer?

Come with me.

Hurry and get in.

Shut up!

Go in fast.

Move it!

Sit here.

If you're loud, I'll kill you.
Got it?

Answer quietly!
- Yes.

Is that a real gun?

Wanna see?

I believe you.

How are you two related?

We're just friends.

And friends come here late at night?

Why are you here?

We just wanted to come here at night.

Tell me the truth, idiot.

No, really!


What makes you trust a guy like him?

I trusted myself.

I had a girlfriend, too.

She visited me every week for one year.

I was so happy.

But that bitch fell in love...

with the guard house sergeant!
He was an idiot.

But I found out the fact only

after he was discharged.

Damn it.

While I was in the service, even my dog...

ran away with some mutt, too.

My Yorkshire terrier...

That bitch!


I came out to kill both bitches.


I have the worst luck in this world.

Damn it.

Know what special day it is today?


Huh, damn it? This sucks!

Hey, what are the odds of meeting
a runaway soldier in the park?

Don't know.

Heard your head blows up if you shoot in the mouth.

Yeah, the hole in your head is this big.

Really? A tiny bullet does that?
- Really, it does!

That's not possible!

Yeah, the bullet tears the...

What are you two doing?

Stop joking around.

Damn it. Damn it!

Even you bastards ignore me.

That's why you must not be foolish.

Why am I foolish?

Even if you do this, she won't come back.

I know. I know it.

But if I die, she'll be heartbroken.

She'll never be the same.

You're wrong.

The pain goes away sooner than you think.

You went through something like this?


It happens that way.


If I'm caught, I'll end up in the can.

I'll always think of her there.

What does 'can' mean?

It means prison.

Don't interrupt.
- Sorry.

Anyway, you're responsible for your actions now.

Excuse me, sir.

How about letting her go?

If I say no?


...let me go, instead.


Come to think of it,
your eyebrows remind me of that sergeant.

You act like him, too.

You can go.

And you...

We die together.

You understand?
- What?

Hey, lady.
Forget about this bastard...

...and look for a nice guy. Got it?
Get going.

Can't we all leave together?

Will you leave if I kill him?


Don't worry too much.

This soldier isn't a bad guy.

You'll come out safely.

You're leaving me here?

I have no choice.

I was afraid to die alone,
but I'm glad we're in it together.

Oh, right.

Over there,

there's an exit near the merry-go-round.
Nobody knows about it.

I used to work here.


You're not tricking me, are you?

I'm a man, too. Why would I?

Walk in front of me.

See? I told you so.


What's going on?

It's Gyeon-woo.

Screw you! Don't come closer!

I'll kill him!
I'll really kill him!

Tell that bitch to come!
So she can see me die!

I'll give you an hour!

If not, I will kill him!

I'll blow off his head!

Hurry up!

The hostage is in danger, but we can still fire.

Don't! Wait! Don't shoot!

Hey, soldier!

I mean sir!

Your girlfriend changed her mind, right?

Did you really love her?

Ask yourself.

I think you didn't.

If you really love her,

you should let her go.

If not, then it's not love.

What's wrong with someone
you don't love getting married?

Stop this, and go back
to your unit as a real man.

A person like you should learn more about love.

If we want to learn,

then we should keep living.

Damn it.

She's the nicest girl I've met.


Don't let her go. Got it?

If you do, I'll take her.

Can I go?

Yes, go!

What the fuck?

Thank you!

Today's my birthday.

I'll live on until I learn what love is.

What was that about...

us being just friends?

No, I said that to save you.

Let me go, instead?

Wanted to save yourself, huh?

He wouldn't have let you go.

Stop lying! Stop lying! Stop lying!

Have a nice life alone.

I screwed up her birthday,

but I feel good anyway.

' Cause I'm proud to be with her,

and things turned out as planned.

I hope you believe in me.

You can't?

Second Half

I remember.

She always came with him until last year.

Was it last spring or winter?

One day, she came alone with flowers to ask a favor.

To not let anyone sit in his seat that day.

What's up?

Oh, hi.

You're early.

I was in the neighborhood.

Miss me?

Of course!

She always tried hard to look cheery.

I like her that way.

What would you like?
- Coke, please.

Wanna die? Drink coffee!

Two coffees, please.

I start to know her.

She pretends to be happy,

but she's full of sorrow inside.

What are you doing?
What are you smiling at?

No. It's nothing.

Looks fun, huh?

Another one?
- Why? Don't wanna read it?

She may get disappointed,

but I should be honest for her sake.

Looks fun. I'll read it.

This time it's a martial arts film.

The heroine is a bounty hunter.

The villain wears rain slippers even on clear days.

The worst of his kind.

His name's Gyeon-woo?

The story's setting is a mess.

Japan invades during King Sejong's reign,

and the king's father is the tyrant Yeonsan.

In the end, the heroine fights the villain in a field.

Heavy rain pours down on a sunny day.

The heroine becomes a king.

King Jung-jo.

She's from the future, of course.

It's fun, huh?

Why is the heroine always from the future?

Science is advanced then,

so they invent a time machine.

And people go to the past to travel.

People from the future could be here now.

I think UFOs are time machines.

Someday, I'll meet someone from the future.

I have to.

If you do, ask him to take you.


If it's possible...

Give this to Shin Cine.

Tell them to cast Han Suk-gyu and Shim Eun-ha
as the main characters.

Jeon Do-yun is okay, too.


We talked on the phone, remember?

Well... this is 'The Warrior's Sad Love Story'...
It's going to be a hit.

Shin Cine didn't call back.


Hey, kid.

Is the subway your sketchbook?

Don't scribble on it.

Wanna die?

My lipstick!

I always take her home, even to Bupyung station.

It's something a man must do.

On the way, we play fun games, too.

Left foot over the line, I win.

With the right foot, you win.

What's the prize?

Let's see...

How about a little kiss?

A kiss?

Wanna die?

You choose.

Hitting each other.


You can hit me, too.


Someone's coming.

I think this is unfair.

I'm a girl, so I'll slap the cheek.

No. Then I'll change it, too.

But I'm a girl.

I thought men and women are equal.

Okay, then.

You slap, and I slap, too.

Go easy on me and I'll kill you.

Better slap me on the cheek.

If you don't, I'll kill you!

All right.

You slap, and I'll use my finger.

You see, that is fair.

See that guy step over with his left foot?

I had my eyes closed.
Plus he came the opposite way.

I thought it was this way.

Shut up. Here they come.

Left foot. Left foot.

It'll be the right foot.

Left! Left! Switch to the right.

You really

have to hit me?

That's right.

Get ready! Stay still!

When I'm with her,
I never know how the day will turn out.

What are you looking at?

I quit!

Is your face a racket?

Why does the ball always hit my face?

It's strange.

I never want to lose a game.

So I play until I win.

Did you wait long?

My mom bought me these heels,

but they're killing my feet.

Want a massage?

No, it's okay.

Instead, let's exchange shoes.

Don't wanna?

How can a guy wear heels?

It'll fit.

But, I can't...


I see.


I'll buy you some sneakers.

Forget it.

Okay, then wear mine and I'll carry yours.

You don't understand women.

Okay! Let's exchange.


Wanna know a secret?

What is it?

I don't wear panties on exam day.

And I had one today.

Catch me, honey!

Hey. If you don't, I'll kill you.

Wait for me!


It was just for a second,

but I felt something in her eyes.

That's my house.

Wait. I'll bring you an umbrella.

I'm okay.
I'm already wet so I'll just leave.


you are my daughter's boyfriend?

Yes, sir.

How much do you know about my daughter?

Not so much yet...

To start with: Next time, don't hang out till late.

For once, listen to your mother!

You've already missed another date.

Why do you never go?

And what happened to your heels?

What's wrong with you?

I told you not to meet this Gyeon-woo anymore.

He's dumb and has no future.

It's none of your business!

Why is he stupid?
You're the one who's stupid, you don't understand...

What has gotten into you?

Let me live my own life!

Afterward, I didn't hear
from her for a long time.

- Gyeon-woo, it's me.

Her voice sounds cheerful, as if nothing happened.

Our 100th day anniversary is soon.

It's 100 days already?

When do you think a girl's the prettiest?

When a sexy woman is naked.

Where are you now?
Stay right there.

No, I'm just kidding.

The prettiest is when she's playing the piano.

What's your favorite song?

That George Winston song.

Pachelbel Canon?

Yeah, that song.

You're not gonna ask me?

When is the guy the prettiest?

Just give me a rose.

Still have your high school uniform?

Yeah. Why?

Bring it on our 100th day,

and give me a rose during my class.

Do it yourself, okay?

What? What did you say?

How can I during class?

Just hung up on me! Damn it!

I don't wanna get beaten by her,

or get humiliated at a women's college.

I'm cleverer than I look.

Hey, you! Where are you headed?
Come here!

I'm delivering Chinese food.

I ordered it. Bring it here.


Bring a lot of radish?

Oh, I forgot something!

Give me the food first!
That's the wrong way!

Why are you going that way?

There's another customer!

But that wasn't enough for her.

We relived our old high school days.

After our visit,

a school uniform party was
held every month in that club.

But she got wasted again.

Oh, wild teens! Here's a condom.

Let's prevent AIDS.

She's having a happy dream.

Compared to

when I looked at her in the motel the first time,

She looks so different.

Could her pain be cured now?

Who knows?

Maybe it means she doesn't need me anymore.

Excuse me.

Can you drive slowly?


Have any plans after graduation?

Actually, I haven't thought about it yet.

Can I see what's in your pockets?


Of course.

'It's a condom!'

What is this for?

Oh, right.

I learned that it prevents AIDS.

But I haven't used it yet.

Actually, on the way here...
- Forget it.

'Chicks' Hen'?

What does this mean?


Oh, right. It's a chicken soup restaurant.

'We'll satisfy all your wishes?'

I think it's to satisfy our tastes.

'Hurry and tell him.'

How do feel about our daughter?

Oh, right.

We're just friends now.

Please don't worry.

If we get closer, I'll let you know, sir.

Don't see her anymore.

After that day, she hasn't called me.

It was sudden

but that's how we broke up.

We've broken up.

But now, I'm free.

It's me. Come to the café by seven o'clock.

We need to meet.


What? Why?

I have a blind date today.

Come in 45 minutes.

I have a blind date, too.

Are you on your way?

I'm on a date with a girl.

Hurry up.

I have to go to the bathroom.

'Gotta go to the bathroom.'

Nice to meet you.

I'm Cha Seok-won.
Nice to meet you.

Same here.

Have a seat.

Were you really with a girl?


actually, I was with a guy.

Can I take your order?

Coffee, please.

You can drink coke.

I'll drink coffee.

Gyeon-woo. You're very lucky.

I heard a lot about you.

That you're a close friend.


I need to go to the bathroom.

Where's Gyeon-woo?

He left already.

He told me ten rules to follow.

I have a good memory.
I'll recite them.


don't ask her to be feminine.

Second, don't let her drink over three glasses.

She'll beat someone.

At a café, instead of coke or juice

order a coffee.

If she hits you, act like it hurts.

If it hurts, act like it doesn't.

On your 100th day together,

give her a rose during her class.

She'll like it a lot.

Make sure you learn Kendo and squash.

Also, be prepared to go to prison sometimes.

If she says she'll kill you,

don't take it lightly. You'll feel better.

If her feet hurt, exchange shoes with her.


she likes to write.

Encourage her.

Ladies and gentlemen, please pay attention...


Step back behind the yellow line...



What's his name?
- Gyeon-woo.

I'll do it myself.


Where are you?

I looked all over for you.

Come to the escalator. Okay?

You're dead if you don't.

Hurry up.

Who told you to hug me?

Dummy. You're supposed to dodge.

Sometimes I feel like I know her

and sometimes I don't.

We're definitely standing
at a crossroads now.

What's going on between us?

Can this relationship last forever?

Who is it?

It's me, Dad.

She told me to write a letter and bring it.

To write it on paper.

To express my feelings,

I tried hard to find the right words.

When I first met her,

I wanted to cure her grief,

but now I can't give her up.

I wish we can get serious.

I'm writing about these feelings.

She's probably writing about me now.

This is how we're preparing to split up.


See that mountain top?


Could someone hear me from there?

Yes, probably so.

Or probably not.

I wonder if it's possible.

Come on, go over there!

If you can hear, answer me.

You want me to go over there?


Can you hear me?


I'm sorry!

I really can't help it.

It's stronger than me.


I'm really sorry! I can't help it.

I thought I was different,

but I'm just a helpless girl.

Gyeon-woo, I'm sorry.


I'm so sorry!

Did you bring your letter?

What's that?

A time capsule.

We put our letters in it and bury it here.

And in two years' time,

let's meet here again.

We'll read the letters on that day,

and maybe we can find an answer then.

This was her way of saying goodbye,

and I kept repeating in my mind that two years

isn't too long.

Let's open this exactly two years
from now, at two.


We'll meet two years later.

When we meet then, we'll be

different from what we are now.

We may become closer,

or stay forever apart.

We can only choose one.


You go first.

Let's separate here.

Should we go together?

No, I'll take the next train.

I think that's better.

See you in two years!

Okay, in two years!

Two years!



That's how we broke up.

Over Time

I couldn't endure the loneliness after we broke up.

Thinking of those memories,

I started writing about our stories on the internet.

Then I made up my mind.

If I meet her again,

I'll show her a different me.

Got to make use of my time.

For her and my future's sake.

Why does the ball always hit my face?

I wrote our stories on the internet every day,

and I kept myself busy

over the two years.

Excuse me...

I wrote 'My Sassy Girl'.

Shin Cine saw my writing,

and offered to make a movie out of it.

I made her dream come true instead.

I wanted to tell her right away,

but I have to wait until that day.

She didn't come.

It's our only day to meet.

No one knows when she will come.

How did he get in there?

It's a mystery.


Gyeon-woo, how are you?

I was so happy while being with you.

I'm not sure if you knew,

but the person I loved passed away.

The day I first met you

was the day he died the year before.

Actually, I tried to look for him in you.

I know it was wrong.

I'm sorry.

I also met him on the subway
like I met you.

I was really sick at the time.

He did everything

I asked of him.

Just like you did for me.

Under this tree, we planned our future together.

But he suddenly passed away.

While I was with you,

I met his mother often.

She wanted to introduce a nice man to me...

But I couldn't.

The day I first met you,

I sat under this tree,

and prayed to him.

To let me free.

When I met you, it occurred to me

that maybe... he introduced you to me.

But the more I met you,

the more he seemed to
grow jealous of you in me.

The more I liked you,

the more I felt guilty inside.

While the two of us are apart,

I want to forget him alone.

After that day,

I came to this place often.

If I'm not with you after two years,

it means I still lack courage.

How much will we change in two years?

I feel like you live in the future,

and I stay in the past.

I want to meet you soon,

so I can read your letter.

Why are you staring at me, sir?

Because you're so pretty.

I thought an angel had come down.

Do you come here often?


This tree has a secret.

I have a secret here, too.


Three years ago,

I buried a letter here with my boyfriend.

And you, what's your secret?

So what happened?

We promised to read the letters a year ago.

But I couldn't come.

I guess you're a year late.

But two years didn't seem that long.

I haven't made any decision yet.

I just wasted my time on stupid thoughts.

Like what?

If we were destined to meet,

I thought we'd meet by chance somewhere.

Know what fate is?

Building a bridge of chance

for someone you love.

To be honest,

I read both your letters.

I said this tree had a secret, didn't I?


Look closely.

Does this tree look the same as before?

Well, it looks like it changed a bit.

But I'm not sure.

People are dead or alive.

There's a dead tree and a living tree, too.

This tree was struck dead by lightning last year.

It was split in two.

But this young man felt sorry for it.

During this spring,

he planted another tree

that looked the same.

When he planted the tree,

he asked me if it look the same.

He said that a girl would be very sad

if it died,

so no one should know.



It's been a while.

You've gotten even prettier.

You still look young.
How have you been?

You were in England?

For one and a half years.

So I could forget him.

I see.

Feel better?

Yes. A lot better.

Is that true, now?

My son might be sad.

He won't. He'd like it this way.


That's what I hoped.

Auntie! I was getting my photo taken.

You naughty boy.

Know how long it's been?

Sorry I didn't tell you before.

This is Gyeon-woo.
Doesn't he resemble him?

I tried to introduce you to him for several years,

but he kept getting out of it.

Heard you came to Bupyung often,

but you never visited me?

Go out with him.

I thought

he'd make things easier for you.

Oh, right.

Gyeon-woo, you're going to England, aren't you?

She's already been there,

so she can give you some tips.

I don't have to go anymore.


You two know each other?

You may not believe it,

but I think I met a man from the future.

From your future.

This is how I met her again.

Think it's too coincidental?

It's building a bridge of chance for your love.

The End
