“When Romance Meets Destiny” revolves around two brothers, neither of whom have ever told a woman “I love you”.
Gwang-sik is naturally shy and his confidence with the opposite sex is non-existent. He has been in love with the same woman since his senior year of University but has never expressed his feelings, even though she seems interested in him as well. Gwang-tae is outgoing and has no problems getting a woman into bed. However, his inability to take relationships seriously prevents him from having a meaningful connection to women. — imdb
KIM Hyun-seok’s strong suit is in directing chic romantic comedies. A capable director and a talented screenplay writer, KIM also showed much interest in baseball as a movie subject. Two of his four feature films were about baseball. His debut film, (2003), depicted people from all walks of life drawn to a newly introduced, Western sport of baseball in the late years of Chosun Dynasty at the brink of Japanese colonialism of the Korean peninsula. (2007) was an outstanding narrative that intertwined baseball with the painful subject of Gwangju People’s Uprising of 1980. KIM’s most recent work, (2010), took a hint from the classic French play “Cyrano de Bergerac.” The movie, which showcased the director’s talent in portraying romance from a male perspective, was a box office hit for a romantic comedy amidst a market bombarded by thriller movies. -koreanfilm.or.kr
