It is hard to imagine two people who are less well suited to romance than Chang (Kang Soo-Yeon) and Eun (Lee Kyeong-Young). Chang is a self-centered yuppie, a self-appointed aesthete and afficionado of Western art. However, he considers himself to be a great romantic; after all, he listens to Puccini, doesn't he? Eun is a decidedly non-maternal maternity nurse who is equally self-centered, and is equally an arbiter of all things tasteful and romantic. The two meet in the apartment building they both live in, and bristle at the sight of the other. In this "romantic" comedy, their conflict only escalates when they become romantically involved. It's difficult to decide which aspect of their relationship is funnier: their pretentious efforts to "be romantic," or their heated disagreements over such things as a Michael Bolton CD. However, if a good fight is the next best thing to a good romance, perhaps they are a perfect match.
