    "Life Risking Romance" (aka "Mok-sum Geon Yeon-ae") turned out to be a double treat for me. First of all it is a South Korean romantic comedy, and secondly it has one of my favorite South Korean movie stars on the cast list, that being the talented Ji-won Ha.

    Granted, I had not heard about "Life Risking Romance" prior to finding it by sheer luck. Picking it up, it was immediately clear that this was going to be some kind of comedy. And after having read the synopsis and seeing who was in the movie, this was a definite must watch for me.

    The characters in this movie are rich in detail, lovable and hilarious at the same time. And the individual characters do add a lot of flavor to the movie. And there are some really hilarious moments when Han Je-in gets nervous and accidentally farts; fart comedy is always hilarious.

    The cast in the movie was quite good, with a combination of talented actors and actresses. Aside from Ji-won Ha, then it was also very nice to see So-hee Yoon in this movie. The people in the movie were doing great jobs with bringing their characters to life on the screen.

    The story in the movie is about criminal writer Han Je-in (played by Ji-won Ha) whom believes that the handsome new tenant Upstairs might be a serial killer, and takes matters into her own hands to investigate the matter. And it was actually a good storyline, because it was well-written, well-thought through, had some nice twists and surprises to it along the way as well, and it wasn't overly predictable.

    There are many funny scenes throughout the course of the movie, and the scenes are enhanced by a great character gallery and an equally great acting performance from the cast.

    The pacing of the movie is quite good, because there is a wonderful combination of comedy, action, suspense and character development going on as the movie progress. So there isn't really a dull moment from start to end of the movie.

    "Life Risking Romance" is a great combination of comedy, romance and a pinch of thriller mixed together into one entertaining mixture. The combination works out great, because of writer Ba-da Kim and writer/director Min-Gyu Song had come up with something wholeheartedly entertaining and funny at the same time.

    This is indeed a very South Korean movie in every sense, and I mean that in a good way. And if you are familiar with South Korean cinema then you know what I mean by that.
