    Love Reset Movie Review: A quirky tale of second chance romance

    Last Updated

    When one falls in love, one is blinded by the idea that everything is going to be sunshine and sparkles. One sometimes fails to realise that spending one’s life with someone is a big deal. There can be several new things to learn about one’s partner, to adjust, to compromise, to unlearn, to relearn. Simply put, falling in love is easy but staying in love is what take takes real efforts.

    Movies and tv shows have often portrayed the rosy side and the reality of love. Sometimes there is a dash of humour to lighten the mood, sometimes there is a serious dialogue. South Korean film industry has produced several movies which outlines the ups and downs of love. One of the latest flicks to hit the block is Love Reset. What would happen if a warring couple forgets their dislikes for each other and begins dating anew?

    Love Reset stars Kang Ha Neul and Jung So Min in the lead. Right from the start, the movie is a sarcastic take on love and marriage with the leads squabbling for a divorce after what felt like a fairytale romance. The movie was released in theatres in South Korea in 2023 and later it found its place on Viki, making it available in several regions across the globe.

    Love Reset Movie Review

    Love Reset tells the story of Hong Na Ra and No Jeong Yeol, a couple on the verge of divorce. They got married despite their class difference and non-approval from their parents. They were so in love but after marriage, things changed drastically. They began fighting over trivial matters and had not one moment of peace.

    One day, they visit the court house where they are given 30 days to sort their differences otherwise the divorce would be finalised. While returning from the court house, they get into an accident. Both lose their memories in the accident. They do not remember that they dated, got married or were on a verge of a divorce.

    They begin to know each other anew. They begin to fall in love again. But their respective families see this as a chance to seperate them once and for all. As these two again try to get together and their families try to seperate them, a hilarity ensues.

    Throughout the movie, the contrast between the leads and their families is a definite point of humour. There is violence but it does not look threatening. There is an underscore of pathetic behaviour from the characters as they do not actually say what is on their mind but only hint and hope that their minds will be heard.

    Kang Ha Neul is no stranger to the slapstick comedy genre. We saw him deliver a fine performance alongside Park Seo Joon in Midnight Runners. The actor has time and again proven his mettle in acting with a choicest selection of roles. With Love Reset, he does the same.

    Jung So Min has made a name for herself on the small screen with notable roles in dramas like Playful Kiss, Because This Is My First Life, etc. Her role in this movie brings out a new side to the actor’s versatility.

    JAL gives Love Reset 8 out of 10 broken hearts. What do you think about Love Reset? Have you seen the movie yet? Tell us in the comments below!
