Bo Ra And Woon Ho’s Love Story 

 It's 1999, and Bo Ra’s stylish friend Yeon Doo is going to America for her heart surgery. She tells Bo Ra that she has fallen in love with Hyun Jin, a joe who goes to their school. She doesn’t want to go presently because she wants to stay back and be with him. Bo Ra tells her that she's being stupid( we agree) and that she'll help her find out further about him. Yeon Doo leaves, and Bo Ra sets out to collect any information about him. She stalks him and discovers his height, his favorite drink, and indeed his shoe size, regularly emailing these details to her stylish friend. He's frequently accompanied by his stylish friend, Poong Woon Ho. One day, to find his phone number, she goes through an entire list in the telephone registry before striking gold.

Final Studies What Works For ’ 20th Century Girl ’? 

It isn't a complicated story. The movie is clear that it's a story of love and nostalgia and delivers directly. Other than the characters who felt a little commonplace, it gave an overall sweet vibe. The shots are beautiful, and the actors are in good form. There's no real villain then, just complicated passions and a little lack of communication that isn't exactly made easy by not having cell phones. This film is a good way to spend two hours on a weekday, and we don’t mind recommending it to our friends. One can always count on K- drama to deliver a good love story, and it's one of the saving graces of a kidney that's hanging by a thread.
