Movie Info

The Contact is a modern-day romance which depicts youthful love in solitude using urban images. The main characters live alone and do not do well with close, personal relationships. They rather prefer the virtual experiences and e-mail. With gentle satire, the film exposes the fast evolvement of South Korea into a digital society. Twists and turns of a digital love affair are particularly interesting. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Cheob-sok (The Contact)


This is a Korean romantic movie. It is only partly successful. Our leading man, Dong-hyeon, is not fully sympathetic. In fact, he is something of a selfish cad. The leading lady, Soo-hyeon, is much more appealing. She is disappointed in love. But, she keeps plugging away. She is also quite cute. She begins email exchanges with the unknown leading man, Dong-hyeon. The story is pretty good. There are interesting supporting characters. There are more than a few twists and turns. But, the hero, Dong-hyeon, is a problem. This guy is a disappointment on many levels. He seems to deserve everything he does not get. The behavior of the hero at the end did not make much sense. But, it was consistent with his earlier actions. Will these 2 characters finally meet? Will they find "true love"? The audience is kept waiting for most of the movie. And, the answer is not fully satisfactory. You could argue the ending resembles real life. It was a marginally OK flic.
