If you are sick of the horror movies that dominated movie screens during the Halloween period, a refreshing and endearing romantic comedy may prove to be the perfect antidote. Directed by Huh In-moo, Love, So Divine opens with a hilarious scene in which dedicated theological student Kyushik (Kwon Sang-woo), makes a horrendous blunder during school mass. Sent to serve in a small church run by Father Nam as punishment, he meets and accidentally kisses Bonghee (Ha Ji-won) - Nam's drunken niece visiting from the US. The embarrassed Kyushik confesses the incident to Father Nam and is ordered to prepare Bonghee - who is heartbroken after being dumped by her boyfriend - for baptism. Despite arguments at the beginning, the pair become attracted to each other. But as the ordination date approaches, Bonghee's boyfriend starts trying to woo her back. Kyushik, torn between his love for Bonghee and his devotion to become a priest, must make the biggest decision of his life. Kwon, best known for his melodramatic role in the television series Stairway To Heaven, has the charm and good looks that make him the perfect choice for a romantic lead. He and the attractive Ha offer the right mix of romantic-comedic chemistry that renders this cliche-laden story endearing and fun. Director Huh does well in melding romantic elements with a melodramatic plot. The writing and direction is fine and well-planned, despite the silly jokes, over-the-top music and mawkish scenarios. It is a pity that the film fails to become as great as its theme - trading religious vocation for love. It quickly backtracks into the safe territory of romantic comedy once it touches on the sensitive subject of abstinence. The ending offers no surprises, but the fun and sentimental moments seem to be targeted at a female audience. The film contains delightful and touching scenes. But if you want to make sure that your money is well spent, you'd probably be better off waiting for the VCD. Love, So Divine is now showing.
