IF YOU WERE AMONG THE millions who saw My Sassy Girl (2001), the highest-grossing romantic comedy in South Korean box office history, or have been exposed to the TV commercials selling cell phones, fried chicken, jeans and cosmetics during a trip to the motherland, you’ve likely been enchanted by the addictive—and highly marketable— charm of superstar Jun Ji-hyun.

Here's a short clip of the movie which I found on The Wall Street Journal's website. The film opens tomorrow in selected cities in the US and Canada. It has premiered in LA and NYC on the 12th and 13th (or was it 13th and 14th?) respectively and several celebrities were seen on the red carpet such as Melina Kanakaredes (CSI: New York), Jennifer Morrison (House, MD), Nicole Kidman, and Lucy Liu.

I can't wait for this movie to be shown in my country, I don't even care about the reviews that are coming out right now. I just want to see Jihyun on the big screen soon because I miss her a whole lot. ♥

Unfortunately, Ji Hyun wasn't at the LA premiere of 'Snow Flower and the Secret Fan'. The film already grossed RMB35.2 million ($5.4 million) in the Chinese box office despite unfavourable reviews. It also recieved mixed reactions from the US critics.

"Li, luminescent in both periods, is always the concerned, self-sacrificing sister who worries herself to death over her laotong. And Jun, who took a crash course in Mandarin to play this role (and whose Korean accent is accounted for in the storyline), beautifully conveys the sister who must deliberately “disappoint” her laotong in order to free them both, at least temporarily, from their mutual obligations. This film sets up each to become international name actresses." - Kirk Honeycutt @ Hollywood Reporter

"With "Snow Flower," the filmmaker is forever torn between two childhoods, two adulthoods, two distinct political and social eras, and two complex relationships, unable to make both equally relevant. When Wang turns to the past - from the look of the film itself to the performances of Li and Jun - the film, and the story, come alive." - Betsy Sharkey @ Los Angeles Times

"Li Bing Bing is a beautiful young actress, but in dual roles, slogs through each with a dourness that is supposed to stand in for sadness, anger, devotion and maybe even sexual tension. Gianna Jun gets to have a little more fun, playing the more interesting of the two modern day women, and doing her best as the Snow Flower of the title." - Joanna Langfield @ TheMovieMinute

"Wang renders Lily and Snow Flower's tale with none of the attention to class specifics and precise character detail found in See's novel. Yet it's still preferable to that of Nina and Sophia, who are forced to speak in stilted English -- a commercially motivated decision that squanders Li and Jun's naturally expressive gifts, though both actresses come off better elsewhere." - Justin Chang @ Variety

"Though Li Bingbing and Gianna Jun, who play both sets of friends, are almost constantly on screen, they don’t get many big moments. They sustain our interest with their understated and thoroughly believable affection and reactions to disappointments." - Andrew Dowler @ NOW

"Sadly, rather than melding the best of two worlds, the film only takes the worst of their soap operas." - Keith Staskiewicz @ Entertainment Weekly

"The two women in both time periods are played by the same actresses, Li Bingbing and Gianna Jun, who often convey a deep sisterly bond despite the movie's clumsy lurches backward and forward in time." - David Germain @ ABC News
