Byung-hun: "Does it matter? I'm better looking (and not to mention I'm one of the four Asian tigers)"
Mi-Yeon: "Hmmm...let me think...uh..I guess not."
Byung-hun: "[Thinking] I thought so...."
Addicted is a semi-supernatural, dark, love story with a "dispelling" twist at the end. Unfortunately, similar to other Korean movies Addicted's ending is somewhat weak and left more or less open ended. Some viewers may say the director did this on purpose to allow the viewer to make up their own ending. I disagree. The screenplay/storyline was just weak. Not to mention as particularly long, slow moving, unrevealing, love scene. (It was so long, drawn out and drab, I was almost tempted to turn the movie off.)
As for acting, Byung-hun Lee (a.k.a. Storm Shadow from GI Joe), and the rest of the actors performed decently without anything spectacular of note. In fact, I believe anyone could have been chosen to act in this movie and it really would not have made a difference.
In all, Addicted is one of those average Korean movies that doesn't stand out. Perhaps if Byung-hun Lee was not its main actor, this movie may have gone forgotten. This movie is only recommended for rental if you're a Byung-hun Lee fan, though it really wasn't one of his best roles. I can't even say it was a good love story but rather more like a dark drama.
A love story with a dark twist that I thought worked rather well overall.
Friend: and yet you still finished it!
... oh, and naturally there exists a Hollywood remake.
