Simply put, the movie "Kwang-shik's Brother, Kwang-tae" - "When Romance Meets Destiny" (directed by Kim Hyeon-seok), which premiered on November 23, 2005 focuses on how men regard love.

The two main characters, innocent Kwang-shik (Kim Joo-hyeok) and playboy Kwang-tae (Bong Tae-gyu) are brothers. The movie shows how these two very different love, and exposes men's innermost feelings which women often have misunderstandings of. The movie shows that man is an animal that is both extremely innocent and wild, and that has both sincere and evil intentions. Kwang-shik and Kwang-tae are as different as day and night, but they have one thing in common. Both have never said "I love you" in their entire lives: one because he is too innocent, and the other because he is such a player. This movie is convincing because it exposes the fact that men sometimes turn into Kwang-shiks and sometimes into Kwang-taes.

The movie neatly portrays a love story that is more realistic than today's absurd romantic comedies, thanks to the slight twists from the obvious formula and to savory lines and original episodes.

I, Kwang-shik: "My love from seven years ago has returned"

I am a 34-year-old photographer who runs a photo studio in Jamsil. It must have been seven years ago, when a bag of "Saewookkang" chips was only 400 won. I met a girl at a college club. I had returned to school from military service, she was a freshman. Yoon-kyung (Lee Yo-won) was idolized by the male students, but I never poured my heart out to her. Well, I tried a few times, but strangely, I would freeze every time I stood before her.

When girls say "thank you", I know what they mean. It is a circumlocution to express a vague state of mind. A similar expression would be: "You are a good man". This means I am not boyfriend material. In college, my nickname was "peacekeeper in the world of love". As a result I have several "little sisters". Yoon-kyung has appeared in front of me again. But it's strange. She seems to have feelings for me, but why did she give chocolates on Valentine's Day to another man? I want to end my unrequited love of seven years and finally confess my love to her....

I, Kwang-tae: "Men must break up before the 12th encounter"-

The magic number that a man should remember is "12". Which means, in order to be cool, you have to break up with a girl before you sleep with her 12 times. This is when the man starts to get fed up with the relationship and the girl starts to get obsessed. Kyung-jae (Kim Ah-joong), the girl I just met, has a great body and a hot personality, but still I must break up with her at number 12. By the way, the average couple in OECD nations sleeps together after their third date; the rate of progress in Korea is too slow.
