Synopsis:

Review:

The film starts with a bang, and wanders headless for a while before finding it's track. Essentially your standard 'cheating wife' plot, but with well executed and moderately complex characterisation.
A few subplots in there don't seem to hold a great deal of relevance, and are possibly to flesh out a slightly weak plot, but in all the film left me satisfied, if a little baffled in parts.
An improvement on some of the Korean romantic comedy we've been subjecting ourselves to, with the title being one of the more amusing things I've seen in Korean cinema.

Rating: 7 / 10
