Kmovie - 100 Days with Mr Arrogant (2004)

Synopsis - Wikipedia
Photos - Soompi

After being dumped by her boyfriend just before their 100 day anniversary, Ha-Young (Ha Ji-Won) meets a college guy named Hyung-Joon when she accidentally kicks a can that hits him in the face and causes him to scratch his Lexus. He demands she pay him $3000 on the spot. She escapes from him, leaving her wallet behind.

Hyung-Joon stalks her, demanding money to pay for his car. Since she is a poor high school student Hyung-Joon writes up a “Enslavement Agreement” for Ha-Young in order to pay for the damage to his car. Ha-Young is thrown into a nightmarish slave life for 100 days, cleaning his house, running his errands, doing his homework and cleaning his car.

By accident she finds out that the damage to Hyung-Joon’s car only costs $10! She then takes her revenge. However, before she knows it Hyung-Joon shows up at her house as her new tutor! He once again takes advantage of her, but soon Ha-Young finds herself falling head over heels for Hyung-Joon. But what happens when he drops out of her life just when she needs him most?

100 Days with Mr Arrogant is a great example of a sassy girl who you'll love. Unlike the other My Sassy Girl, I really love Ha Young. Nothing wrong with "the girl" in My Sassy Girl. I just didn't love her like I did with Ha Young. Since the beginning of the movie from her imitating Sailor Moon to falling for Hyung Joon, her character is very likeable. 100 Days with Mr Arrogant has been compared to My Sassy Girl but I don't see much similarities except for the sassiness in the girls. Otherwise, that's it. I prefer 100 Days with Mr Arrogant over My Sassy Girl. It has also been compared with My Tutor Friend because of the second half. I can see that but I prefer My Tutor Friend over 100 Days with Mr Arrogant.

I became a fan of Ha Ji Won and wanted to watch more of her movies. She has a unique look to her and is very beautiful. Her acting is great. Every time I see her, she gets better and more beautiful.

Kim Jae Won is adorable. At first, I didn't think he was cute but watching him more, his boyish looks and goofy smile are what turned me on. The beginning of the movie had his macho walk and I thought it was a bit dorky. I have a soft spot for guys who think they are tough and a bad ass but have a heart. That's where Hyung Joon came in! He fits that perfectly.

The movie is definitely worth a watch. I was laughing so hard but then there's a sweet side romance in the end.

You have never seen The Promise? It stars Dong Kun Jang AND Nicholas Tse, could send it you (half through with After This Our Exile, which is quite difficult to watch, very depressing:/).

I adore 100 Days with Mr Arrogant, although it's not the best Korean movie I've seen, it's pretty good. =D Oh and Indian cinema? That's interesting, any good movies/dramas you reccommend?
