|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Windstruck|
|This romantic comedy tells a story of two different people, a brutal, tough but cute policewomen, Kyong-jin and Myong-woo, a shy loveable high school teacher. They meet in a typically oddball fashion, with Myong-woo trying to chase down a purse-snatcher only to get mistaken for the criminal and get chased down himself by Kyong-jin.
Soon they were assigned to work together in a ‘police-teacher' patrol in a certain district. That night was a memorable night for both of them. They fight with a bunch of high school gangsters, they get stuck in the middle of a drug cartel shootout, and they sleep together with their hand handcuffed.
After that night, they become closer and they start dating. They continue their normal life but they still trying to spend as much time as possible together. Even during her duty, in the middle of dangerous chase, Kyong-jin still manages to talk sweetly when Myong-woo calls. Myong-woo will try his best to help Kyong-jin though he didn't know anything about police job. He is doing that for the sake of Kyong-jin, to protect her. In the end, he always gets himself in a hilarious binds while frantically trying to play the knight in a shining armor.
Unfortunately, their happiness didn't last forever. In a snap, everything changed. One day, as usual, Myong-woo called Kyong-jin who is in the middle of chasing a dangerous criminal who just escaped from prison. He arrives to see Kyong-jin about to shoot the criminal. The shot missed and accidentally hit Myong-woo who was standing behind the criminal. That night, Myong-woo dies. Kyong-jin blamed herself for Myong-woo's death.
