New melodrama “Fly High” (Saranghanikka Kwaenchana) is a story in which a young man falls in love with a young woman with a fatal disease and a limited time to live.

With its cliche storyline, the film fails to show new dimensions of love and it becomes a commonplace story that we have had enough of.

Directed by Kwak Ji-gyun and starring Ji Hyun-woo and Lim Jung-eun, the movie revolves around Min-hyuk (played by Ji), an 18-year-old high school student, who loves dancing, and comic books.

He has never had a serious relationships with a girl until he falls in love with Mi-hyun (by Lim) at first sight. Min-hyuk believes that she is his soul mate and tries everything to win her.

Min-hyuk organizes sweet and cute little events for her. He secretly puts a bunch of flowers in her locker and sweeps a street clean of snow from her house to a main road.

But she keeps rejecting Min-hyuk
