There's a prickly young woman Se Bin (Shin Se Kyung) in the same class as him, and the two become unlikely friends. What Doo Hun doesn't know yet is that Se Bin was actually sent by a rival gangster to monitor him. A former sharpshooting champion, Se Bin has fallen into hard time, and her friend Eun Jung (Esom) is in big trouble with the loan sharks. With their own lives on the line, Se Bin receives the order to kill Doo Hun.

일부러 접근한 거예요. 아저씨 감시하려고…
전설로 불리던 조직 세계를 떠나 식당 하나 차려서 평범하게 살고 싶은 남자, 두헌. 그를 감시하라는 의뢰를 받고 그에게 접근하기 위해 요리학원에 나타난 여자, 세빈. 과거를 숨기고 싶은 두헌과 정체를 숨겨야만 하는 세빈은 서로를 속인 채 조금씩 가까워진다.
아저씨 나 좋아하지? 니가 나 좋아하는 거 아니야?
요리학원에서 함께 요리를 하며 서로에게 마음을 열어가는 두헌과 세빈. 세빈의 요리 실력에 극찬을 아끼지 않던 두헌은 농담 반 진담 반 같이 식당 동업을 하자고 제안한다. 세빈은 전설적인 조직 보스였다는 사실이 믿기지 않을 정도로 따뜻한 인간미를 가진 두헌이 편해져 간다.
이제 내가 아저씨 죽일 거예요.
그러던 어느 날, 두헌을 총애하던 연합 조직의 보스가 갑자기 세상을 떠나고, 이미 조직을 은퇴한 두헌이후계자로 거론되자 조직 내 분열이 일기 시작한다. 그리고 전직 사격 선수였던 세빈은 감시를 중단하고 그를 죽이라는 새로운 의뢰를 받는다. 이를 거절하려던 세빈은 가족과 같은 친구 은정이 혼자 두헌을 죽이려고 시도하다 사고를 당한 것으로 알고 복수를 위해 두헌을 죽이기로 결심한다. 두헌의 일거수일투족을 감시하면서 저격할 기회를 노리는 세빈. 하지만 자신도 모르는 사이에 알 수 없는 감정에 휩싸여 마음이 흔들린다.
두헌이 은정의 죽음과 관련이 없다는 사실을 알게 된 세빈은 두헌을 구하려고 하지만 배후에 감춰진 의뢰의 압박은 점점 더 세빈을 조여온다. 한편 조직의 음모를 파헤치던 두헌은 자신을 따르는 조직원 애꾸를 통해 마침내 세빈의 정체를 알게 된다. 하지만 자신을 죽일 리 없다고 생각한 두헌은 모든 위험을 감수하고 그녀를 지켜주려 하는데…
그를 죽여야 하는 세빈, 그녀를 믿고 싶은 두헌
이들의 운명은 어떻게 될까?

Professional Review of "Hindsight (DVD) (Korea Version)"
Hindsight attracted a great deal of hype in Korea, marking the return of Il Mare director Lee Hyun Seung after an absence of over a decade. The film also whipped up interest thanks to its casting of one of the country's most popular and acclaimed stars, Song Kang Ho (The Host, Thirst) as the male lead, opposite up and coming young actress Shin Se Kyung (Acoustic), with an accomplished supporting cast that includes another promising starlet in Esom (Second Half), veteran performer Yoon Yeo Jung (who recently impressed with a deadpan turn in The Housemaid), Chun Jung Myung (Hansel & Gretel), Lee Jong Hyuk (Parallel Life), Kim Min Joon (No Mercy for the Rude) and Oh Dal Soo (Detective K). With its potentially odd central paring being woven into a tale of gangsters, revenge and uneasy romance, expectations were set high, though the offbeat film surprisingly met with mixed reactions from critics and local audiences.
Song Kang Ho plays Doo Hun, a top Seoul gangster who has retired to Busan, attending cooking classes with the plan of one day opening his restaurant. He's partnered in the kitchen by a cute though bad tempered young woman called Se Bin (Shin Se Kyung), and the two gradually warm to each other and begin spending time together outside class. What he doesn't know is that she has actually been sent by one of old his rivals to keep track of his movements, she having fallen on hard times thanks to her friend Eun Jung (Esom) running up an insurmountable debt. Things get more complicated when Doo Hun finds outs that his old boss back in Seoul has met with a suspicious accident and sets out to investigate, while Se Bin's situation worsens and she is given the order to kill him.
It's perhaps not too hard to see why Hindsight didn't go down with some, mainly since its narrative is unfocused and does tend to meander, with a laid back pace that's never afraid to take its time. However, in this respect, the film really isn't too different to Il Mare, showing the same kind of thoughtful plot and character development, though this time with an air of menace and lurking violence beneath its calm surface. Aside from the fact that the film quite annoyingly opens briefly with its end scene, this approach works well, lending the proceedings a meditative feel, its shifts in tone never too jarring. Though it is fairly slow moving and prone to stretches where not a great deal happens, Lee does inject some well handled action scenes, including an impressively brutal knife fight, and several car chases and shootouts. This helps to keep things engaging, and the film is arguably all the better for having a looser, more lyrical feel than many other Korean blockbusters.
The film also benefits from its compelling and unconventional couple, with Doo Hun and Se Bin's friendly gangster and angst-ridden assassin making for an interesting and winning dynamic. Song Kang Ho is on fine form, humorous and raggedly charming, and the decision to cast a far younger, dangerously cute actress in Shin Se Kyung pays off well, with her showing genuine screen presence and an ability to handle emotionally complex material. Lee keeps their relationship to an extent ambiguous and oddly passive, and while this may frustrate viewers looking for out and out romance, it fits the overall mood and script. Similarly, though their obvious age gap may initially seem off-putting, it reflects the film's themes of the conflict between modern and old fashioned values and the cruel ruthlessness of modern society, also seen in its differing visual depictions of Seoul and Busan, and in its use of cookery as a warmly traditional practice that brings people together (a motif seen with increasing frequency in recent Korean cinema).
The film is visually very strong, with some gorgeous cinematography from Kim Byeong Seo (Castaway on the Moon), who adds an atmospheric blue tint and makes excellent use of the clashes between the various locations and scenery. Although aesthetically pleasing and poetic, it has to be said that the film does go a little too far at times, with some laughably gratuitous scenes of characters staring out at sunsets and the like, Lee occasionally being in danger of drifting into artistic pretentiousness.
However, in the grand scheme of things this isn't too much of a criticism, at least for viewers with a taste for these kind of moody atmospherics, and Hindsight really deserved a better reception than it received. Philosophical and beautiful, though tough when it needs to be and driven by a fascinatingly unorthodox pairing, it's a film which will hopefully find a wider audience on DVD and will see Lee Hyun Seung not waiting quite so long before his next outing.

Caught in the Crossfire
I've only recently watched “Hindsight” but by the promo photos pre expected Se-kyung’s character Se-bin to be either a revengeful lover or linked to a gangster situation. With Kang-ho Sang, surely the latter. “Hindsight” though begins where it ends, at a lonely water field with Se-bin pointing a none silencer gun at Doo-hun (Kang-ho) and then firing a blooded shot into Doo-hun’s chest, leaving him apparently dead. The plot then slips back into time retelling how all leads to that fatal tense moment. Doo-hun is a retired gangster and decides to move to Busan in the hope of entering the cuisine trade and opening a restaurant there. But Doo-hun’s first step is how to cook, so he attends…cooking classes. There he meets the moody young Se-bin (Se-kyung Shin), a girl who somehow takes an anticipated nonchalance to Doo-hun’s warm hearty nature. But as Se-bin harshly chops up meat and fish (prompt - watery eyes), she considers her hard background and mission within a group of drug dealer gangsters. Se-bin lives with her friend Eun-jung (Esom) in a modified steel haulage container, both being in debt and subject to demands from their gang bosses. But when Doo-hun’s old gangster boss is killed in a suspicious car crash, Doo-hun becomes aggrieved and returns to his gang for answers. With corrupt political machinations afoot coupled with the suspicious accident, Doo-hun is then tailed by Se-bin for information for her bosses. After Se-bin and her friend Eun-jung are caught stealing drugs from the rival mob, they’re almost killed by the aggrieved gang, but both are spared and given a chance - if they kill Doo-hun. Se-bin also a gun sniper expert is given the task. But Se-bin genuinely likes Doo-hun’s gritty warm nature the more she attends the cooking classes – even begins to fall for him. But when Se-bin believes Doo-hun had killed Eun-jung, she jostles her emotions and puts Doo-hun firmly in her sniper sight.
Similar to “Il Mare” this is easy paced, picturesque with tranquil atmosphere but amidst violent outbursts of gangster conflicts like a knife fight in Doo-hun’s apartment room and some nasty dispatches at the hand of a cold assassin. But the spiky frolicking of punky Se-bin and the likeable amiable Doo-hun, make for sweet clumsy romance. By Doo-hun in Se-bin’s sniper sight lens this could be ‘Lovesight’ with a heart shaped lens. Bonus wise there are lots of popular faces at the VIP showing, including some of Girls' Generation.
