Neither Han Hyo Joo nor Go Soo are my actor biases though I do like them very very much, so when I heard the same agency stars were paired up for the upcoming romance K-movie Love 911 (Korean title is called Bandage) I was quite intrigued and mildly excited. The movie filmed earlier this year and the first trailer was just released with the movie scheduled for a Christmas holiday release. I have to say the trailer knocked my socks off. I just loved it. It feels like the good old-fashion love stories that Hollywood churns out, when the broken and quirky leads find each other and endeavor to work through their issues to find happiness together. It’s not terribly makjang but feels very realistic and satisfying. In the movie, Go Soo is a veteran firefighter who is a widower having lost his wife a few year earlier. He runs into Han Hyo Joo and rescues her on a bridge, only to learn that she is his colleague of sorts since she’s the medical first response doctor who accompanies the firefighters out on the fire. I love that her character is ballsy and makes her interest in Go Soo known immediately and then pursues him without any sense of shame or hesitation. Go girl! He’s wary, of course, but clearly not unaffected by her, and I love just knowing that they are going to help each other heal some wounds while moving forward together. This type of story has been done to death but if handled deftly with the right stars it still manages to hit the spot. If this movie is a hit at the box office, Han Hyo Joo will have followed up her mega-successful movie Masquerade with this one, which means this girl’s one-two punch is a knockout indeed.
