Movie Info

The relationship between a promiscuous textiles professor and an aspiring comic book artist slowly comes into focus in director Lee Ha's scintillating black comedy. Park Seok-gyu (Ji Jin-hee) has arrived at a small rural college to teach illustration. Most of the time it wouldn't take textiles professor Jo Eun-suk (Mun So-ri) more than a day or two to lure such a handsome new teacher into her bed, but there's a strange tension between Park and Jo that soon gets the rumor mill at the college working overtime. As Jo weighs her options with a flashy television producer who wants the sultry teacher to accompany him on an upcoming trip to Japan, it's soon revealed that Jo and Park were once the best of friends, and that the sexually liberated teacher's freewheeling ways once led to tragedy for one of Park's closest friends. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • Textiles professor Eun-suk (Moon So-ri) comes with a pronounced limp (in fact part of her allure) & a secret past - & her gleefully promiscuous ways serve to undermine Korean assumptions about both academic respectability & feminine submissiveness

    To be honest, this movie ain't that bad.. The story actually turns out to be really good when reaching half of the movie, yet the performance from the character quite good.. The weak thing from this movie is the directing style which is quite boring and made the movie less interestingly to be watched.. I love the twist they made in here, even though the ending didn't gave much but that's okay.. Overall, it just another average Korean movie..

    A convoluted and messy journey into the affairs of a single woman. The narrative hops through time, through characters without a care as to whether or not the viewers will keep up. Some of the comedy is very effective, in both dialogue and slightly odd moments. Unfortunately there is no real character to attach oneself to. This results in a plodding pace with sudden changes in tone. The film does make use of a unique and fairly awkward technique. Each scene ends with a pretty much still shot going on for a couple seconds longer than one would expect. It adds to the fairly odd comedy of the film. Two shocking twist moments are also brilliantly filmed from a distance. They come out of nowhere and it is hard to tell whether it was a fantastic stunt or some brilliant CGI. Either way it's impressive. Certainly an oddity, but for many I would assume it would be an infuriating one.
