Sin Jae Jun is a postman who collects the letters that people write for their beloved ones who have already passed away and sends them to Heaven. One day a girl sees him emptying the post box and somehow he ends up asking her to help him with his work..., both start to fall for each others, but there's a problem.
Ooookay, I had reaaally high expectations for this movie given the screenwriter and the story and I was quite disppointed.
First of all... the whole first half of the movie was extremely boring. I really had to struggle to keep on watching... the last part was better, but there was still the fact that I was extremely unhappy with the character of Jo Ha Na. I absolutely disliked her personality, I felt she was completely random and this is also because of Han Hyo Ju's bad acting. I've seen her before in Iljimae as Eun Chae and I liked her a lot there. The quiet, lovely type suited her well and her acting was good, but she totally failed at the "lively" type in Heaven's Postman. As I said, her actions didn't feel "lively" to me but mostly random and as others have stated her crying is awful. Nah, even until the end I couldn't get to like her.
Jae Jung on the opposite was a positive surprise! I saw him in "Sunao ni Narenakute" and couldn't quite get to like his acting there, but seeing him acting in his native language and seeing him get to act as a character that in my opinion fits his type, his performance was much better. His quiet, reserved acting fit the atmosphere of the movie well, quite opposite to Han Hyo Ju's overdone acting which would've fit better into some Manga adaption Drama, but not in this kind of movie.
Still, in the end I kind of liked the message of the movie and the ending was really unpexpected and lovely. Even though I knew the twist I forgot it while watching this movie and was very delighted to have forgotten it, because it made the movie much more interesting (at least the second half of it).
I would like to have this re-shot with someone else in Jo Ha Na's role... Maybe the girl from Coffee Prince or someone else a bit less pretty but more talented. So, all in all, average.
