The story of a lovable guy (Jang Hyeok) that falls for a female police officer (Jeon Ji-Hyun). They meet when Myungwoo, the loveable guy, chases after an escaping robber. The police officer mistakes him as the culprit, and chases him down and arrests him. Since Myungwoo is a teacher, he is given the task of catching delinquent students, and coincidentally, the police officer that he's partnered with is the same police officer that arrested him earlier.
So it's sort of like a prequel to My Sassy Girl, as evident with the ending, but it's actually a completely different story. There's much more sadness and drama, but I felt that the "tragedy" in this movie occurred far too early, making you wonder how long the movie really could be. Feeling that, it seemed like Windstruck was very dragging and slow.
The characters were all very likeable, Jeon Ji Hyun is as adorable as ever, and the male lead is also quite a good character. Although their relationship needed a bit more development, I still found that the chemistry between these two leads was exceptional.
There's not as much depth to the plot as I would have liked. There were much less entertaining scenes or funny parts, although there was enough to keep it interesting until the second half. The second half of the movie was definitely worse than the first, and if it wasn't for the semi-decent ending, this movie probably would only deserve a C- score.
Still, all in all this is a pretty good Korean film, although not JJH's best work. It will keep you entertained and it is a tearjerker as well, but you won't feel TOO sad in the end because there is a good wrapping/summing up of the story.
