When she arrives at the hospital and is pronounced brain dead, her husband starts getting violent, wanting find Mi Soo and make her pay, he then hurts one of the firefighters Kang Il (Go Soo) who tries to stop him. As a consequense Mi Soo might lose her license but she might be able to stop it if Kang Il sues the man for violence, but unfortunately for Mi Soo, Kang Il has no intention whatsoever to do that. Mi Soo keeps bothering him, trying to convince him, and as a last resort she figures that seduction is the way, so she starts working voluntarily as a rescue team member.

The movie is a great comedy romance! Had me laughing so much, while still having that nice serious romance. It wasn't boring at all and very nice acting and story. Not a too heavy love story, just between the two leads, and the seperate second love story was cute as well. Even though yes you can figure out a lot of things, you enjoy watching it. I don't know how I didn't watch this movie earlier. Def. going on my favorite movie list. A nice relaxing movie you can enjoy alone or with friends. It might be more of a girl movie though, can't complain about the rescure team members, ehm ehm, good looking guys. Recommended!! My kind of movie!

Bunji's Verdict
First things first: I get why Jenji is all over this. It is so like her; a romantic “drop-dead-of-laughter” comedy that stays on your mind. I liked it, but I it probably THE most typical storyline in Korean film industry. ON the other hand, that doesn’t make it bad. It’s honest, sweet and heartbreaking. And if you are like me, crying your brains out every time you see firefighters, you will cry here too.
 I don’t want to spoil much, so I’m not going to talk storyline, but acting wise, great. Perfect actors for perfect roles and on screen chemistry good too, except maybe too fast? But then again, 2 hour movie…
All in all, decent movie :)

☆☆☆☆½ / 4½ out of 5 stars
