Comments : A fun, fast paced romantic comedy in the spirit of the British film “Love Actually.” There is quite a handful of characters in this film that cross paths, so you should pay careful attention in the beginning or keep a scorecard of some kind. Anyways the film is a very fast paced comedy, with no dull moments. The relationship between the psychiatrist and the cop, the pop singer and the former nun, and the down on his luck salesmen & his wife, were my favorite characters in this movie.
Alright, this is the part where I will get to formally introduce the copyrighted “Lunapark6 K-Comedy 3/4 Rule.” What the “Lunapark6 K-Comedy 3/4 Rule” states is that within any Korean comedy, at approximately the 3/4th mark of the film’s running time, the comedy will temporary cease to be a comedy and become a serious drama, dealing with a tragedy usually in the realm of a pregnancy, abortion, terminal illness, or death of a close family member. Once the tragedy is resolved, it will revert back to a comedy until the film finishes. In “My Lovely Week” the “Lunapar6 K-Comedy 3/4 Rule” governs as usual, this time bringing up the serious subject of matter of unexpected pregnancy and the mother’s decision to keep the baby or have an abortion.
