Once in a Summer
A Nutshell Review, by Stefan S source: http://anutshellreview.blogspot.com/2007/02/once-in-summer-geuhae-yeoreum.html
«All in all, a highly recommended romance movie with all the necessary ingredients for that date, and filled with an ending that would probably linger on after the movie has well ended (making it good for that after-movie discussion as well).»
Lunapark6, by luna6 source: http://lunapark6.com/once-in-a-summer.html
«One of the big problems I found with this film was the choice to have Byung-Hun Lee play himself as a younger college age student. He was obviously in his mid to late 30’s and it was difficult to believe, during the countryside scenes, that he was someone in his early 20’s. »
movieXclusive.com, by Darren Sim source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/onceinasummer/onceinasummer.htm
« In many films of this genre, predictability may be the word du jour, and Once in a Summer is no different. However, it benefits from some clever writing and the film is filled with small, memorable and magical moments. These are one of the strongest points of the film. »
LoveHKfilm, by Kevin Ma source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/once_in_a_summer.htm
«The film is entertaining, the stars are attractive, and they have suitable chemistry to make the romance work, but when the audience doesn't feel the romance, they can't get involved when tragedy strikes. It's rare that I wish for a Korean melodrama to be less subtle, but this is one of those times.»
eFilmCritic, by Jay Seaver source: http://efilmcritic.com/review.php?movie=16304
«I imagine that this was a very popular date movie in Korea; it's got all the right ingredients and doesn't ever push hard enough to take the audience out of the mood.»
