Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme: Jinx!!!

1 Feb 2015

Korean exchange student in Japan Ji-ho plays matchmaker for her two lukewarm Japanese friends, teaching them all about love and letting loose a number of Korean-style love ‘jinxs’ on them. Encouraging a rather clumsy romance to blossom, Ji-ho helps her introverted Japanese friend Kaede (Kurumi Shimizu) to use Korean-style romance tactics to attract Yusuke (Kento Yamazaki), the boy Kaede has loved ever since high school.

Featuring superstar K-pop group T-ARA idol Hyomin as its charming lead character, this romantic comedy delightfully explores romancing in different cultures through many enchanting, tear-jerking and heart-warming moments. Jinx!!! also brings together many fun familiar romantic scenes from cinema, with Ji-ho forcing the would be couple to show their love by re-enacting scenes from films such as Love Actually and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
