Kim Jeong-hoon’s A Petty Romance: a pleasant way to spend two hours

Choi Kang-hee and Lee Seon-gyun make a fine couple in A Petty Romance – eventually

A Petty Romance (쩨쩨한 로맨스, 2010) is one of those gentle romantic comedies which Korea seems to do so well. Charming, easy-going, and despite the story line – the composition of an adult manga – not particularly risqué. Written and directed by first-timer Kim Jeong-hoon it’s nothing to rave about but it’s a very pleasant date movie, the only mildly irritating thing about it being that its publicity posters don’t really have much to do with it. It will get a UK release later this year from Terracotta Distribution.
