Bo Na lives for her job. She works for a movie maker and would love to direct a movie herself - just that she is way too hardworking. Everybody gives their work to her and she can't even take care of her looks. Nobody really cares about her, as long as she's doing her job. Until one day, when she meets Dr. Swalski, who sells her a series of videos that introduce her into how she can make a guy do stuff for her. And with that, her career finally starts to take off.

The beginning is very funny with how she actually finds Dr. Swalski and how the video is built up. Also, the character of Bo Na is easy to accept, since she is a very average girl. Of course they had to add some serious business as the highlight of the movie - because in Korea it seems to be a must-have for every comedy movie - but I didn't dislike it as much as I disliked it in other movies. Here, the approach was well made. The only thing I could really note as a big disadvantage is the length of the movie. At some point it just got hard to keep on watching without taking a break. For a movie it's not that long, but for that kind of storyline it dragged at some part.

Still, if you want a silly korean movie, this one is it! I'd say it's maybe one of the best comedy movies from Korea I've seen so far. And it's one I would gladly recommend you to watch as well, which is rare. In this case, well deserved 4 stars!

Wasn't expecting anything special, but this was seriously so funny! I was actually laughing out loud, which no movie has made me do in too long. Lee Shi Young is always great, especially in comedy. I;m not familiar with the male lead, but he was so SO funny!!! Great movie, I recommend it, especially if you are having a bad day and need a pick me up.

started good but the second half was a bit boring and
i really disliked the "blue balls" talk because it seemed like it justified men's sexual violence towards women
