Based on a true story published on the internet by Kim Ho Sik, this offbeat 2001 romantic comedy stars Cha Tae Hyun (Lover's Concerto and Sad Movie) as Kyun Woo, an all-around nice guy college student who's on the lookout for love. While his aunt has been trying to set him up on a blind date for ages, Kyun Woo has always come up with a reason to decline, instead hoping to find the woman of his dreams all on his own. What Kyun Woo finds instead, however, is a decidedly different kind of woman. While on the subway, he has a fateful encounter with "The Girl," a beautiful, but totally plastered young woman played by Jeon Ji-Hyun. Kyun Woo tries to ignore the girl's drunken antics, but when she ends up calling him "Honey," before promptly passing out, the duty falls upon our protagonist to take responsibility for the young woman since everyone on the train angrily presumes she's his girlfriend.
Kyun Woo's forced act of kindness ends up kick-starting a bizarre sort of relationship between the two, as the charming, but violence-prone woman starts putting our hapless hero through numerous humiliations! Kyun Woo bears with it all, becoming both a figurative and literal punching bag for this manic young woman, but as he gets to know her better, he begins to realize that there's something deeper lurking beneath her tough girl facade. What secret does she hold? And what will it mean for their wacky, yet strangely tender relationship?
