    An Insulting Sequel to the Iconic Original

    Gyeon-woo is back, but without the original Girl anymore. This
    situation opened up the opportunity for him to meet and hook up with
    another ”sassy” (also unnamed) girl. (He is really a masochistic sort,
    isn’t he?) Anyhow, this girl is Chinese this time, knows her marital
    arts and her cameras, They actually get married here in a charming
    indigenous ceremony. Conflict arises when Gyeon-woo gets a job at a
    tech company with an abusive boss. His Wife will not take that abuse
    sitting down, but will Gyeon-woo appreciate her for it?

    Sad to say, watching ”The New Sassy Girl” right after watching ”My
    Sassy Girl” just emphasized just how bad this sequel by director Jo
    Geun-sik is. The comedy was terribly flat all the way, with nothing
    memorable that sticks at all. Even the romantic conflict is very lame,
    practically just tacked on without any emotional impact.

    The age of Cha Tae-hyun (already 40 years old now) shows, and his
    attempt to recapture his 2001 charm was largely ineffective. While she
    is pretty, Victoria Song (as the new Sassy) could not really measure up
    to the high level set by Jun Ji-hyun in the first film, in both charm
    and performance. Her role was very poorly developed.

    I thought this sequel did not really need to happen. It was but an
    insult to the former’s memory. 2/10.

    Don’t compare it with ”My Sassy Girl (2001)”, even don’t treat it as a sequel ! 🙂

    What I feel after watching this movie is that- even ”Windstruck (2004)”
    had much more authentic relation with ”My Sassy Girl” , got original
    ”sassy girl heroine” cast and director (Kwak Jae-young)- was much
    emotional melodrama too ^_^ . So if you haven’t watched that
    prequel-like movie yet, better watch it first, then come to grab this
    ”My New Sassy Girl (2016)”!

    Now, coming to the point- Asian blockbuster hit- Korean classic movie
    ”My Sassy Girl (2001)” didn’t need any sequel actually- long ago it’s
    got a satisfying ending! But after 13-14 years, two Chinese-Korean
    production companies came up to make a sequel- mainly to grab Chinese
    market, actually to draw attention of emotional Chinese audiences! So
    you see- in this Korean movie the heroine is a Chinese girl,
    necessarily and unnecessarily a lot of Chinese dialogues are delivered
    here and there, even the couple is seen to roam about mainly in China!
    Whatever, only the hero of original movie remained the same. So what to
    do- first of all, they spoiled original ending of movie, made the
    original sassy girl as nun and sent her to monastery! Although sassy
    girl Jun Ji-Hyun had no physical presence in this movie, her ‘girl’
    character was trolled several times. But this sassy girl fans
    (including me!), don’t be disappointed, just take it as satire/comedy
    and try to enjoy the rest! 🙂 However, several years after being dumped
    by sassy girl, hero Gyunwoo met his first love-who is nobody but a new
    Chinese sassy girl! Despite her rude attitude-he fall for her and
    eventually they got married! (Ah, again- don’t relate this to original
    ”Sassy Girl”, from this segment- it’s better to take it as totally a
    different movie except the presence of more idiotic hero Gyunwoo!)

    Cha Tae-Hyun (Gyunwoo) acted according to the plot-but he’s very much
    stupid and pretty dumb character here- more than ”My Sassy Girl”- and
    it’s no more fun to see such humiliation of his character! And new
    sassy girl- rookie actress Victoria- perhaps she tried hard in her own
    way to capture a little bit sassiness – but what to do- there’s no
    reasonable foundation, just some unsparing & groundless imitation of
    previous ”sassy girl (Jun Ji-Hyun)” – after all her character is poorly
    executed here. Even the plot had not much depth actually, sometimes it
    went beyond logic that tried poorly to relate with original ”My Sassy
    Girl”- so you see-it’s overall a forgettable movie!

    So for this Chinese-Korean joint venture production ”My New Sassy
    Girl”- don’t compare it with original one or treat it as any sequel –
    just treat it as a mild comedy-romance movie -6 out of 10 rating from
    pretty optimistic view! Watch, enjoy the trolls, leave and eventually
    forget the most of it! 🙂
