Fascinating movie, Cyrano Agency Movie of Korean Actor Uhm Tae Wong
CYRANO AGENCY IS A DATING AGENCY
Cyrano Agency's business is to attend to clients (Most of them are males) who don't know how to court the girl they like or became dumbfounded when they see thier prospect face to face. In their calling card it said "Make her fall in love, at Top Secret". Meaning, they will help their clients by stalking the prospects like an undercover agent and with the information that they can gather, they will start their job, like they are making a love story movie. The four characters running the business are all Theater People. That is why they held their office in a former theatre where there are so many props which they use in their projects. They are also acting coaches, teaching their client on the proper reaction, including the manner of dressing and hairstyle..
Who is Cyrano?
The Movie is based on a French Playwright Cyrano, It is a story of a very artistic Man who writes love letter that can melt a woman's heart, but Cyrano is not that good looking, in fact some people make fun of him because of his extra large nose. He is in love with a Distant and exceptionally beautiful cousin Roxanne but never had the courage to tell her because of his physical insecurities. His friend Christian fell in love with Roxanne but he does not have the capability to write a love letter, so Cyrano helped him by writing a love letter address to Roxanne but under the name of Christian. It was the best love letter he had written for he wrote what his heart was saying, he was indeed in love with Roxanne.
The Big Boss of Cyrano Agency is Byeong-hoon (Uhm Tae Wong), He used to act in theatre and plays and one of most remarkable performance of him was when he portrayed the role of Cyrano, that could obviously the reason why they named the Agency after him.
Uhm Tae Wong as Byeong-hoon - Byeong-Hoon is the big boss of Cyrano Agency, a Theatre Actor with a good training background in Paris where he met his ex girlfriend Hee-Jong
Park Sin-hye as Min-yeong - She works eith Byeong-Hoon as strategist, undercover agent, acting coach and make up artist of their clients. She knows very well the flow of thier business and very determined to push through with the Cyrano Agency. She always reminds Byeong Hoon about not to complicate personal feelings with their business
Choi Daniel as Sang-yong - a succesful financial strategist...but not so good in courting women, he is determined to spend a lot just to win the heart of Hee-jong
Lee Min-jeong as Hee Jong -Ex- girlfriend of Byeong Hoon, who became Sang-yong Girlfriend in the end
START OF THE TWIST
Cyrano Agency seemed to be very successful in helping their clients to have a love life, until Sang Yong came to the office, requesting their services. When Byeong-Hoon saw who is Sang Yong's apple of the eyes, his initial reaction was to decline him, but Min-Yeong said they need the client so that they can pay their agency debt, Byeong-Hoon finally agreed but he quoted a very expensive service fee to Sang Yong, thinking that he may not consider the agency's assistance since they are too expensive, but Sang Yong said he can afford it.
Sang Yong's prospect love of his life is Hee Jong, Byeong -Hoon's Ex Girlfriend that he still loves. The twist of the story started when Byeong Hoon almost ruined the purpose of their agency because of his personal feeling. The lovers that they are setting ended up with Hee Jong getting mad with Sang Yong. Byeong Hoon decided to close down the agency but Sang Yong begged, and asked them not to close down and still help him with Hee Jong.
Byeong Hoon pities Sang Yong and realized too how deeply Sang yong loves his ex girlfriend so he decided to help SAng Yong again though his heart is aching.
On the day when Sang Yong Proposed to Hee Jong, Sang yong forgot his line, through the secret device, Byeong Hoon dictated to him what he should tell Hee Jong. And he said what his hearts wanted to tell Hee Jong. He became the modern day Cyrano, helping his friend proposed to the woman that he also loved.
Hee Jong accepted Sang Yong's Proposal, while Byeong Hoon quit Cyrano Agency and went back to theaters as director.
The last part of the story was with Min yeong visiting Byeong Hoon, now she is the one with secret device and her target is to make Byeong Hoon fall in love with her.
Scene from the movie
MY PERSONAL VIEWS
A good love story. though I can't understand clearly why Byeong Hoon and Hee Jong can't patch up their differences when they still love each other.
I Love the part when Byeong Hoon dictated to Sang Yong his confession of love, Uhm Tae Wong was able to express the character's pain of letting go of his love for another person. I also like to commend Park Sin Hye when she sadly watched Byeong Hoon in pain when Sang Yong and Hee Jong finally kissed. She was also good when she pretended to be Byeong Hoon's girlfriend and begged Hee Jong to let go of him...
This movie is short but every scene is remarkable. All actors portrayed thier roles very well,
Nice to see my favorite Uhm Tae Wong, after watching him as Yushing Rang in Queen Seon Deok, as the other man in My Sassy Girl Chunyang (how I favored him more than Marvin) as a different character in Handphone, I can say he is indeed a good actor... Hope to see more of his movies and soap opera soon
