maybe the director of these two great Kmovies haven't notice making the story connected as if they have a plan of making two different movies!!

i also think of a connection!!

as you go deeper the story of these two movies, maybe you would realize of some simmilar parts and their common relation with each other!!

still giving respect to the comments of other!

I've got to say, I've not been able to find the My Sassy Girl movie anywhere. I saw the first part of it and though the ending of WS is similar to MSG there isn't a connection. There has been one post on here that states that clearly and presents facts. You can hope and say it's a prequel, but...it's not. Similar? Yes, but not the same or even related.

Read this and you'll know for sure WHY WINDSTRUCK is NOT the prequel to MY SASSY GIRL

1) The girl is older in WINDSTRUCK, she's in her late 20's.
the girl in MSG is in her early to mid 20s, that doesnt make sense if you believe WS came first.

2) She's in a career as a cop in WS but a student again in MSG, wrong again.

3) in MSG we see a necklace given to her by her deceased lover, an
essential part of the story and memorable piece to the character.
That never happened in WS.

4) There's no mention of the 100 days of being together in WS that was
mentioned in MSG.

5) The girl in MSG met her first love on a bus, not chasing a robber in WS.

"Windstruck and My Sassy Girl are not in parallel universes either. They are two separate movies and have nothing to do with one another. The possible reason why the movies may seem so similar is because it's the same director and actress."

regarding the ending, it was just the Director's way of paying RESPECT or HOMAGE to his
first sucessful film. He was assuming most viewers watching WS watched MSG...
and in doing so the little cameo role at the end would you make you

read on if u dont believe me.

for audiences it is still a sequel (in this case a quasi-prequel), regardless if it corresponds exactly, narratively or not. numerous times throught the history of film, the same cast and crew for a big hit will be brought together, and it will essentially be a "sequel" though it may have a totally different storyline or only superficially similar similarities.

in this case, I got the sense that trying to stick too closely to making a straightforward prequel may have been too limiting, but clearly MANY aspects of Windstruck certainly seem to come about as a contemplation of the Sassy Girl's previous story, (but ultimately altered in whatever way they found they needed to to make as interesting and as independent a film as possible).

this "prequel" flopped in Korea but was really successful in japan. i suspect that this may have been the case since korean audiences may have also been confused like many on this post, that ostensibly it SEEMED like a prequel, yet in its details COULDN'T be. this may have been a mistake to have a film that on the face of it seems to fit as a sequel, yet has too many differences for it to be. then to end it where the MSG begins makes it REALLY seem like a discontinuous prequel.

thats you guy's assuming it is.
The DIRECTOR of the movie himself said it WASNT.

just because it shared similarities, DOESNT make it tie into each other
IT WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A CAMEO ROLE.
It had nothing to do w/ My Sassy Girl....

assume all you want, but if even the director said it isnt then thats just being
too foolish to look past the obvious discrepencies.

what's foolish is to believe what a director says about his project. that's like suggesting that literary criticism stick only to what novelists say about their works. directors commonly spin for the sake of marketing or their own egos, or because they don't want to have to explain why a story that ON SO MANY LEVELS clearly ties in with MSG!

clearly ANYONE watching the movie will constantly be making parrallels between the two, that's only TOO obvious. perhaps he was afraid of criticisms that it's TOO GIMMICKY for him to so blatantly mine the success of his previous film, or was hoping to have a film be more of a stand-alone film than it obvious WASN'T. windstruck relies HEAVILY on the work of the prior, essentially lifting all of the successful elements of the first. MANY so-called sequels, ESPECIALLY in asian cinema, regularly revisit a successful film by using similar characters and the same cast and crew.

for the director to point out that WS is not contiguous narratively with MSG is to point out the obvious. but to see it NOT as a sequel for audiences and ticket sales perhaps is too narrow a definition of how THE INDUSTRY (as well as audiences) thinks of a sequel.

There is no connection between the movies....I read somewhere that director loves his movies so much that he makes movies which are sort of homage to his previous movies.....not the whole of the movie but some of the scenes....To prove my point I would say watch his other movies and you would get the connection.....for eg there is a scene in "Classic" which has actor,actress,library and rain in it.....then you watch "My mighty princess" which also has a scene similar.....another example.....watch "My girl and I" ( written by director), it has a scene about the actor going on war and includes a farewell at the station.....then you watch "Classic" which also has a similar scene.......these are just few observations.....bottomline is watch all of the director's movies......written or directed......all of them are good.
