If anyone's interested in watching Jackal is Coming, it's been subbed in English on dramacrazy.net.

it's really fun! Jaejoong is hilarious and Ji hyo is really a good actress, her comical side is the backbone of the movie ^ ^
beautiful final scenes of Ji Hyo and jae, the kiss, the flight of him and she that stuns herself .... and the faces in the scene of the ambulances ... and the call!
the fan in the car, I was upset, I immediately thought of what saesang they did in the dorms ...
There are so many scenes ... I liked everything!
What did you think about?

I haven't watched all of it with subs yet. I'm waiting to watch it with my friend when he comes over. He likes it a lot b/c it's funny. He seems to like Jaejoong's projects better than Yoochun's. He preferred Dr. Jin over Rooftop Prince simply b/c Jaejoong owned a gun. lol. And now he likes Jackal and not I Miss You b/c Yoochun cries too much in IMY.

My favorite parts in the movie is the bondage and whip scene. I watched the important parts with subs to get a better understanding of the plot.

I actually watched it raw first and now with subs. When I fist watched it I was like ... What the heck did Choi Hyun's ex-gf have to do with this plot? LOL. It became a little clearer this time around. But still kinda not? I'm stupid.

Anyway, first I must tell you that this translation is still not quite accurate. But it's enough. My friend who is Korean American told me that she actually was confused when she first watched it too because they used a lot of phrases and words that she doesn't know. So the film apparently is very distinctly KOREAN. Now having that said, the humor and cultural references only serve to prove that.

Personally, I liked it. The beginning was a little slow and uneventful which could have been fixed with more humor but it eventually picked up. As a Korean comedy with it's overly stereotypical characters, once it got down to it, I did find it hilarious. I don't want to give anything away so I will just say that Jihyo and Jaejoong as the leads was a good choice. They made it! Poor JJ though, he must endured quite the beating in the making LOL. The pervy officer character though was kind of unnecessary. I get what they were trying to do, the role of the unlikely hero, but he didn't really do anything except get reinforcements -_-. Again though, his verbal contribution might have been lost in translation. Like I said, there are still some ... Eh? What does that mean? ... moments even with subs. You'll enjoy it. Especially if your a JJ or Jihyo fan cuz they gave it their all and it shows. Btw, don't drink hot beverages while watching this movie. I almost chocked with laughter and burned my tongue in the process!

It's okay to give spoilers, b/c I've seen it raw as well. I just haven't watched the entire movie with subs yet, just a few clips here and there to understand the plot a little better.

Oh, and I'm sorry I haven't found time to read your fanfic. In fact, I have quite a few fanfics to catch up on.

Mhm. I see. Well then, if you understand why the ex wanted to teach Choi Hyun a lesson, when Hyun sort of explained that it was her who left ... please let me know. I think it has something with him changing in his trainee days but it's still iffy. Like, change how? And the end when it goes ... "Don't kill him. He has comradeship." The heck does that mean? That he makes a good ally? But I thought Jackal was retiring! So yeah, I'm still a little confused.

About the fic, don't worry bout it. If you do read it, your thoughts would be much appreciated. ^^
