Movies 101: 100 Days With Mr. Arrogant

After being dumped by her boyfriend just before their 100 day anniversary, Ha-Young (Ha Ji-Won) meets a college guy named Hyung-Joon when she kicks a can that accidentally hits him in the face and causes him to scratch his Lexus. He demands she pay him $3000 on the spot. She escapes from him, leaving her wallet behind.

Hyung-Joon stalks her, demanding money to pay for his car. Since she is a poor high school student Hyung-Joon writes up a “Enslavement Agreement” for Ha-Young in order to pay for the damage to his car. Ha-Young is thrown into a nightmarish slave life for 100 days, running his errands, i.e.: cleaning his house, carrying his shopping, and cleaning his car.

By accident she finds out that the damage to Hyung-Joon’s car that’s only $10! She then takes her revenge. However, before she knows it Hyung-Joon shows up at her house as her new tutor! He once again takes advantage of her, but soon Ha-Young finds herself falling head over heels for Hyung-Joon. But what happens when he drops out of her life just when she needs him most?

The original Korean title can be literally translated as “my love, the asshole,” or, more roughly, as “my love, the no-manners”. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/100_Days_with_Mr._Arrogant)

Kinilig ako nung napanood ko ‘to. I enjoyed watching it because it was funny. I love Ha-Young’s innocence and Hyung-Joon’s arrogance. They were a perfect match. I sometimes wish to have my own Hyung-Joon, but much kinder one.

I also love the ending (even if it was already expected).

“You should be more careful. You almost hurt…me.” – Hyung-Joon
