Kmovie - Seducing Mr Perfect (2006)

Syopsis - Wikipedia
Photos - Soompi

Min-joon (Uhm Jung-hwa) is a believer in true love and always very dedicated to her current boyfriend. However, men always break up with her - her latest boyfriend ends their relationship on her birthday. Distracted by the latest break-up, she bumps into a car and a man steps out of it - who turns out to be her new boss, Robin Heiden (Daniel Henney). Heiden has very clear ideas about a relationship and love: both are a game of power and Min-Joon seeks advice from him, as she doesn't want to get dumped again. However, when she starts to treat men like Heiden treats women, she realizes that she prefers her older behaviour, even if that means that she gets dumped again; she doesn't see love as a game of power and never will. Heiden, who has to deal with his own heartbreak, as he loved a woman so much that she had to shoot him to get the message across that she wasn't interested in him, starts to soften at Min-joon's attitude towards life. He eventually falls in love with her and both get into a real relationship and a happy ending of their own.

Seducing Mr Perfect is also known as Seducing Mr Robin. After the success of My Name is Kim Sam Soon, Daniel has been getting offers. Ironically he can not speak Korean because he grew up in the USA. He is the son of an American father and Korean mother. Therefore, his roles have been a Korean guy usually who grew up in the USA. His character Robin understands Korean but speaks back in English. I wish he spoke some English because I can not speak back Hmong that well to elders but I do know how to speak it.

Daniel Henney! That's the only reason why you need to watch this movie! He is a sexy man! Although I prefer Hyun Bin over Daniel Henney in My Name is Kim Sam Soon, there is no denying that Daniel's hot. Daniel is definitely hotter, it's just that in My Name is Kim Sam Soon, I feel in love with Hyun Bin's character instead. Although I criticized his lack of Korean, I still think he did a good job in this movie. I didn't like his acting in My Name is Kim Sam Soon though. I haven't seen Daniel's lasted movie, My Father, which I heard is really good (but now I have, click on link!)

Uhm Jung Hwa is cute, modern, and hip. Doesn't surprise me since she is a successful, popular pop singer in Korea. Admitly, I haven't listened to her music. And I love Kpop!

My complaint about her is her English! She sounds like a FOB! Need a heroine like Jung Ryu Won in My Name is Kim Sam Soon who can speak Korean and English very well. Uhm Jung Hwa's character Min Joon is suppose to be a translater but sounds like she's struggling.

The storyline is cute and predictable. But if you like that stuff, watch it. Although it's not the best, it's definitely worth watching for the hotness of Daniel Henney.
