Bungee Jumping Of Their Own
(aka 'Beonjijeonpeureul hada')
by Dai-Seung Kim
South Korea 2001
"The story begins on a rainy afternoon with So In-wu (Lee Byeong-Heon, JSA:Joint Security Area) meeting In Tae-hae (Lee Eun-Ju) by chance and offering her shelter under his umbrella while they wait for her bus.
A romance with a twist ending. The film reminds me of Ditto in that it will please the teen market ... more so than films from the likes of Hur Jin Ho (Christmas in August and One Fine Spring Day). This doesn't mean there is nothing for the mature viewer though ... far from it ...
The romance between the leads work and I enjoyed the character introductions during the 1st 30 mins of the movie but interest in the film dips during the middle section where the director (Kim Dae-Seung his feature debut) tries to introduce the 3rd character in the movie ... however the final moments of the film is some of the most daring I've seen for a romance and is worth sitting through the middle section just to see.
Its another excellent Korean romance!."

Good clean sharp picture with bright colours even though it is not 16x9 enhance. A few flicks and flecks abound but only a few.
The DD5.1 sound is clear and makes good use of rears. I have no complaints about sound or picture. out of Kin Ho
