Running Time: 113 minutes

Kim Yun Woo (Yoo Ji Tae ) works as a civil servant at the district office. He is 30 years old and he’s not married yet. After moving into a new apartment, he met a new neighbour, Han Soo Yong, a high school student who lives downstairs. She is a cheerful girl who lives with her mother. On the other hand, Sook Kang, who also works at the district office, falls in love with an older woman, Kwon Ha Kyung. Ha Kyung still can’t forget about her previous love as she keeps looking for him. Sook Kang still goes after her to go on a date with him. It’s about two couples who have ups and downs through love.

It was interesting to see how the two couples tried to get along. It reflects on various kinds of relationships. Kim Yun Woo and Han Soo Young are in an oppa and dongsaeng relationship while Sook Kang and Kwon Ha Kyung are in a noona and dongsaeng relationship. To them, age is just a number. So long, they are fond with each other then they are happy for each other. Both Yun Woo and Soo Young give each other love and company which leads to developing their love. Sook Kang has to realize that Ha Kyung is going through hard times. So, there is a balance of focus between the two couples.

If I were to choose one of my favourite couples, it will be, of course, Yun Woo and Soo Yong. Even though their age difference is huge, but they always have each other as they share both love and laughter. Their love grew stronger whenever they are on ‘dates’. Although Soo Yong’s mother rejects the relationship, Soo Yong maturely believes that Yun Woo is the one for her. That is because Yun Woo is always there for her. Even though Yun Woo is an adult, he truly cares for her because of her beautiful heart that makes him smiles.

To me, it shows how relationships go on among couples who don’t care how old they are. So long they have each other in sharing love and happiness, then that’s fine. I adore how events are created to make his/her lover happy. I adore how they do their upmost best in pursuing their love. A film with focus on two couples is great to watch. Although there are two stories, but you’ll definitely love both of them as there are bromance who share their doubts about love and relationships.
