This Charming Girl (Hangul여자, 정혜; RRYeoja, Jeong-hye; lit. "Woman, Jeong-hae" or "Girl, Jeong-hae") is a South Korean drama film written and directed Lee Yoon-ki.


Jeong-hae's life is as monotonous as her job at the post office. Her apartment, which is not far from where she works, is filled with things she has bought through the home shopping network; only a stray cat waits to greet her each day. On Sunday afternoons, she sits on her veranda with her cat listening to children play below; she loves this time the most. In her life, this is probably the most peaceful time. Jeong-hae's childhood memories include her mother with a pencil in one hand and a cigarette in the other, quietly drawing and writing. It is a memory still hard for her to handle, for her mother's sudden death left a deep scar. When it feels like only memories are taking over her life, she cannot hold back her tears. However, one day a love that moves her heart appears: "Tonight, would you have dinner with me at my place?" Slowly, something starts growing once again in her heart. She is at last hopeful that she could be happy.
