"Although love is game that should be played well, it still takes honesty and not manipulation to make it work."
It was a typical love story of a perfect guy and a not-so-perfect-girl who fell in love because of their clashed beliefs where one realizes that his/hers was wrong. But I love the story development and how it ended. For me, it had convinced me that a perfect guy could fall for a not-so-perfect girl. That is unlike some movies or TV shows which, in a snap, he just realizes he's in love with the stupid-acting girl because he loves making fun of her. I think that would be nonsense.
Anyway, they had this scene where Robin Heiden (Mr. Perfect) was telling Min-joon (the not-so-perfect girl) about the reasons why her past relationships doesn't work. He was pointing out that she just gives everything in the relationship which turns her into the underdog of the relationship. When Min-joon's ex-boyfriend returns to her, she asks his help to make the relationship work this time around. And then, this ex-boyfriend opened up to Min-joon that he had noticed her change and that he misses the old Min-joon who was all-caring, etc. Then Min-joon confronts Robin saying:
"I’m curious. What if, in manipulating people, we lose the pleasure of an honest conversation? Why use manipulation if we can’t discover one’s true feelings?"
And also, I love Daniel Henney.
