    Still not my cup of tea -- I watched it a few weeks ago during a trip to Korea -- but I did find a new angle that makes me appreciate the movie more. On first viewing I saw it as a poor man's "Twilight," shot with all the artistry of a feminine-products commercial. (Does every shot have been to be THAT overexposed?) But now I see it more as a Disney-style Girl and Her Mammal movie, with an anthropomorphic twist: It's sweet, it's chaste, it's (almost literally) a puppy love story. The hammy supporting cast may do them a disservice, but Park Bo-young and Song Joong-ki deliver on a couple tough roles. The screening ended just like the one I attended in Korea: not a dry female eye and hardly an unoccupied male shoulder in the house, with every last person glued to his/her seat during the closing credit sequence.

    Loved the movie. I've heard there is an alternate ending. I am interested in finding out what the alternate ending is since this was the aspect of the movie I had issue with =)
