Unstoppable Marriage is director Kim Sung-Wook’s first movie and a good piece of romantic and unpretentious fun (more fun than my review, if I may say so myself). Kim has obviously taken some inspiration from his previous work on hit comedies like the excellent Attack the Gas Station by Kim Sang-Jin, Lovely Rivals, and My Teacher, Mr. Kim, by Jang Gyoo-Seong, who made Small-Town Rivals this year, and to whom he was an assistant for a long time.
The main attraction of this charming tale of opposites attract is the pair of glamorous star-crossed lovers that graces the big screen for about two hours: the unfeasibly cute (I’m sure I’ve written this before) ex-S.E.S. member and top-celeb’ singer-turned-actress Eugene (in a more orthodox transliteration: Yoo-Jin), and rising star/heartthrob Ha Suk-Jin from Hot For Teacher, See You After School, and the recent hit drama Hello! Miss.
