"Daisy" is a story about the inevitable showdown between a detective and a killer who fall in love with the same woman. In the story, Jeon plays a street artist who dreams of opening her own exhibition someday, while Jeong portrays a killer who loves her but cannot confess his love to her because of his profession.
Some good production values (and a strong performance by Gianna Jun) are undermined by suffocating direction, and a plot that sheds weight and coherence quicker than a hooker on a meth diet.
The story was told in a very interesting fashion that made it more compelling, but the actual romance fell quite flat.
Romance, mystery, cop and criminals... South Koreans take on Amsterdam
[Review based on Director's Cut]
I've had a thing for Gianna Jun since she did My Sassy Girl, so it was just a matter of time until I took on this South Korean romance set in Europe.
While she's all cute, the art-parts are a nice touch and some of the narrative works pretty well, this is pretty much a forgettable romance without a lot of original stuff to help it out.
Daisy was watched to check it off my TOTAGA-list.
