YesAsia Editorial Description

Korean romantic comedies were never quite like this! From writer/director Son Jae Gon comes My Sweet, Yet Brutal Sweetheart, a darkly comic send-up of the typical Korean romantic comedy that proves to be anything but formulaic! Park Yong Woo (from Ditto and Blood Rain) takes on the lead role of Dae Woo, an educated, cheerful thirty-year-old who has gone his entire life without asking a woman out on a date. However, fate soon intervenes when a beautiful art school graduate with alluringly expressive eyes (Choi Gang Hee, from 1998's Whispering Corridors) moves into Dae Woo's apartment complex and takes residence in the room just below his. Thanks to some increasingly proactive encouragement from one of his faithful friends, Dae Woo actually musters up the courage to ask her out to dinner, and - surprise, surprise - the two hit things off!

It isn't long before the young lovers fall head over heels in love! But as the relationship takes off, Dae Woo begins to suspect that his new girlfriend may be hiding a dark secret. But what? His bewilderment at the situation quickly develops into concern, if not outright shock! Also known by the international title My Scary Girl, this 2006 film takes the typical romantic setup found in most films of its ilk, and turns the whole genre on its head! Instead of settling for the expected schmaltz and melodrama, My Sweet, Yet Brutal Sweetheart delivers the unexpected, resulting in a delirious, tremendously refreshing trip to the movies!

    첫 사랑... Special Memory 그들만의 살벌한 러브 스토리

    영화 <달콤, 살벌한 연인>은 두 남녀의 연애담을 그린 영화임에도 마냥 사랑스럽고 멋진 주인공들이 등장하거나 알콩달콩한 에피소드들로 이루어진 스토리의 영화가 아니다. 이 영화는 관객들이 그동안 영화에서 보아오던 전형적인 두 남녀의 로맨스를 보여주는 로맨틱 코미디보다는 어디로 튈지 모르는 캐릭터들과 독특한 소재를 조화롭게 매 만진 새로움이 강점인 영화 인 것이다.
    사랑은 유치한 거라 부르짖으며 서른이 넘도록 연애 한번 못한 ‘대우’와 지적이고 예쁘지만 누구에게도 말 못할 과거를 품고 있는 정체모를 여자 ‘미나’의 만남은 어디서도 찾아볼 수 없는 범상치 않은 만남임을 예고한다. 이들에게는 데이트도, 첫 키스도, 첫사랑도 남다르다. 겉모습은 마냥 완벽해 보이지만 결정적인 결함을 지닌, 결코 평범하지 않은 두 캐릭터가 펼치는 살벌한 러브 스토리. 영화는 예상치 못한 대사들과 행동으로 관객들의 허를 찌르는 즐거움을 선사한다.
    누구나 한번쯤은 겪어봤을, 첫사랑... 이루어질 수 없어 아름다운 기억으로 자리잡아있는 추억일 그 첫사랑이 <달콤, 살벌한 연인>에서 대우에게는 가슴시리도록 뼈아픈 독특한 첫사랑으로, 미나에게는 일상을 꿈꾸게 하는 사랑으로, 관객들을 긴장감과 안타까운 충격으로 몰고 갈 것이다.

    달콤하거나, 혹은 살벌하거나. 전형성을 벗은 새로운 캐릭터

    “혈액형? 사랑? 유치하게... 그런 헛 소리를 믿다니!! ”
    비판적 연애주의자 황대우
    직업 : 대학 영문학 강사 / 취미: 독서
    달콤한 매력 : 뭐든지 노력하기, 열정적 순애보
    싫어하는 것 : 혈액형별 성격분석, 닭살커플, 무식함

    절대적으로 연애는 불필요한 것이라 믿고 있는 그 남자. 하지만 서른이 넘은 나이의 무게가 느껴질 무렵 이제 연애라는 것을 해보고 싶은 생각이 드는 늦바람에 서툰 연애를 시작하려는 남자다. 무조건 잘 해보려고 노력하는 노력형 스타일의 주인공으로 전혀 로맨틱하지도 않고, 때로는 시니컬하고 신경질적인 모습을 동시에 갖고 있어 전형적인 로맨틱장르의 남자캐릭터를 무너뜨린다. 특히, 대우의 캐릭터는 특유의 털털한 웃음과 순박한 미소로 때로는 수줍어하면서도 카리스마 넘치는 박용우의 모습과 꼭 닮아 있어 더욱더 리얼하고 신선한 캐릭터를 선보일 예정이다.

    “아무리 바빠도 책 읽는 시간은 꼭 가지려고 노력해요 ”
    우아한 일상을 꿈꾸는 이상주의자 이미나
    직업 : 유학 준비 중인 미술학도 / 취미: 독서
    살벌한 매력 : 가끔씩 보이는 알 수 없는 표정
    싫어하는 것 : 무시당하는 것, 교양 없는 말투

    이탈리아 유학을 위해 공부한다는 지적이고 도도해 보이는 그녀. 양파껍질처럼 벗기면 벗길수록 정체를 알 수 없는 미스터리한 여인이기도 하다. 언행일치가 안 되어 대우를 당황스럽게 만들기도 하고 이름 역시 본명이 아니라는 사실. 그녀의 숨겨진 과거와 현재 그녀의 주변에서 일어나고 있는 일들 속에 평범한 일상에서의 사랑을 꿈꾸는 인물. 최강희 그녀의 트레이드마크인 사랑스럽고 귀여운 이미지와 함께 이중성을 가진 미나를 통해 색다른 이미지를 선보일 예정이다.
    대우의 어설프지만 순애보적인 연애와 미나의 정체를 더욱 궁금하게 만들어가는 이야기 전개는 단순히 예쁘고 낭만적인 로맨틱 순정물이 아닌 스릴러적인 긴장감을 갖고 있다. 달콤한 사랑을 꿈꾸는 대우와 예쁘고 지적이지만 살벌한 눈빛을 가진 미나가 펼치는 이 미스터리한 연애는 두 캐릭터가 지닌 톡톡 튀는 새로움만으로도 관객들에게 신선하고 독특한 재미를 전달해 줄 예정이다.

    HD기술력의 노하우를 지닌 방송사와 고급 인력의 인프라를 보유한 영화 제작사의 만남!!

    영화<달콤, 살벌한 연인>의 시작은 MBC와 영화 제작사 싸이더스FNH의 만남에 있다. 오래전부터 HD드라마 제작에 많은 노력을 기울였던 MBC와 국대 최대 영화 제작사 싸이더스FNH가 2편의 HD영화를 공동 제작하기로 한 것. MBC와 MBC프로덕션이 제작비 투자를 담당하고 싸이더스FNH와 MBC 프로덕션가 제작을 맡은 방식으로 진행되며 MBC는 이번 프로젝트를 통해 HD영화제작의 가능성을 타진하고 싸이더스FNH는 신인감독 발굴 및 HD영화에 대한 노하우 축적의 기회로 삼을 예정이다.

    이번 프로젝트는 방송과 영화계가 공조한 HD영화의 시작으로 자본의 교류뿐 아니라 인력과 시스템의 교류라는 점에서 중요한 의미가 있다. HD촬영을 활발히 사용, 전문적인 노하우를 가지고 있던 MBC와 영화제작에 있어서는 최고의 경험과 인프라를 가지고 있는 싸이더스FNH가 자신들의 경험과 지식의 공유를 통해 시너지 효과를 발휘하고자 하는 것. MBC와 싸이더스FNH가 각각 1편의 작품, 총 2편을 기획하고, MBC는 2편 모두에 대한 HD카메라와 인력, 후반 작업 지원 등을 담당, 싸이더스FNH는 제작과 마케팅을 진행하게 된다.

    특히 HD영화가 완성도 면에서는 기존의 필름 영화에 손색이 없고 상대적으로 적은 비용으로 제작을 할 수 있기 때문에 새롭고 신선한 소재개발과 함께 다양한 장르를 시도할 수 있는 하나의 장으로 만들어 갈 수 있다는 의의도 가지고 있다. 이는 이번 프로젝트의 한편인 <달콤, 살벌한 연인>이 기존의 방송이나 영화에서 볼 수 없었던 참신한 소재와 독특한 캐릭터들로 이루어진 이야기라는 점에서 기대를 모으고 있다.

    그녀! 나타나다...

    대학 강사를 할 만큼 똑똑하고 젠틀한 남자 황대우. 하지만 그에게 결정적인 결점이 있었으니, 바로 여자와 연애에 대해 체질적으로 거부감을 갖고있어 제대로 된 연애를 한 번도 못해본 소심한 성격의 소유자라는 것. 그런 그가 나이 서른이 넘어가자 커플 들이 눈에 밟히고, 어느 날 침대를 옮기다 허리를 다친 후에 커진 외로움에 어쩔 줄을 몰라 한다. 그런데 그녀가 나타났다. 아랫집으로 이사 온 지적이고 독특한 분위기의 여인 미나!!

    그녀! 사랑을 가르쳐 주다...

    "...내일 저랑 같이 영화 보러 안 갈래요?"
    대우는 친구 성식의 장난으로 얼떨결에 미나에게 데이트 신청을 하게 되고 그녀는 놀랍게도 그의 서툰 데이트신청을 받아들이는데...하지만 처음 사랑을 시작하는 대우의 표현과 행동들은 어설프기만 하고 미나는 그런 대우와의 만남에 마음이 상하지만 어느새 그만의 순수함에 빠져 둘은 열정적인 연애를 시작하게 되는데...

    그런데 그녀, 수상하다??

    취미는 독서에 미술전공을 하고 있다던 미나!!도스토예프스키의 <죄와 벌>을 모른다. 미술학도가 자신이 소장한 그림의 미술가 <몬드리안>도 모른다?? 지적인 미나와 전혀 어울리지 않는 룸메이트, 어느 날 나타난 전혀 그녀와 어울리지 않는 옛 남자친구, 무거운 짐 가방을 들고 외출하는 날이면 어김없이 온몸에 흙을 묻히고 오는 그녀!! 그리고, 결정적 증거! 그녀의 본명은 '이미나'가 아닌 '이미자'다.

    사랑이 깊어질수록 그녀에 대한 의심은 늘어가고 갑작스럽게 드러난 미나의 정체에 대우는 갈등에 빠지는데...

    Professional Review of "My Sweet Yet Brutal Sweetheart (a.k.a. My Scary Girl) (DVD) (2-Disc) (Korea Version)"

    June 13, 2006

    Although this is a broad and perhaps too dismissive generalization, I can't help but feel that Korean romance movies - whether they be comedic, tragic, or both - are getting increasingly stale. They seem to either try way too hard to be "wacky" at the expense of plot, character development, and real comedy or they resort to some clichéd melodramatic plot point just to get viewers to reach for their hankies (Yeah, terminal illness weepie, I'm looking right at you).

    Sure, both Korean romantic comedies and dramas usually feature good-looking stars and possess seductively glossy production values, but where are the genuine laughs? The earned tears? Or any actual innovation, for that matter? Time and again, the audience is subjected to yet another tired variation on K-drama convention #1: "Pretty Korean People with Problems." Boo frickin' hoo.

    Enter one welcome breath of fresh air entitled My Sweet, Yet Brutal Sweetheart, the devilishly clever send-up of the typical Korean romantic comedy. This little genre-bending tale has earned itself a bit of positive buzz, not to mention a respectable take at the box-office since its release in early 2006. The film takes a familiar storyline - "hapless loser meets the girl of his dreams" - and turns it on its head.

    My Sweet, Yet Brutal Sweetheart stars Park Yong Woo (Ditto, Blood Rain) as Hwang Dae Woo, a shy English professor who's never had so much as a date in his thirty-something years of existence. Dae Woo is a nice guy, but he's also irritable and bit out of touch with modern women, so his chances of wooing the girl of his dreams seems somewhere between slim and none. With a little bit of a push from a friend, Dae Woo asks out his new downstairs neighbor, Lee Mi Na (Choi Gang Hee). Claiming to be an art student with plans on studying in Italy, Mi Na is beautiful, intelligent, and elegant - everything Dae Woo's ever dreamed of in a woman and more. Well, she's certainly a good enough gal to make him gleefully toss out his hidden porno stash. And after a hilariously awkward start, Dae Woo's sincerity wins Mi Na over, and the sparks begin to fly between them. Yep, it's just about time to cue the goofy, cutesy dating montage we've come to expect in films of this ilk.

    The scene comes and goes, but just when you think you know where the film is heading, My Sweet, Yet Brutal Sweetheart throws its viewers a curveball. Things take a dramatically strange turn when the love struck Dae Woo pops over to Mi Na's place, only to discover a rough-looking, naked man emerging from her bathroom. Coarse and threatening, the guy looks like he belongs in another movie.

    Unsurprisingly, Dae Woo is mortified, but Mi Na later explains that the mystery man is her ex-boyfriend, and he simply barged into her house. She tells Dae Woo that she'll "take care of things," but he seems doubtful and tries to break things off. But upon reflection, Dae Woo agrees to give Mi Na time to sort things out, and before too long, the ex is out of the picture for good. Literally.

    At first, Dae Woo is blissfully - and quite comically - unaware of his beloved's potentially homicidal tendencies, but eventually, her strange behavior and inconsistent cover stories prompt him to hire a private eye to dig up clues about her past. What follows is a bloody trail of dearly departed ex-boyfriends, curiously large kimchi fridges, spot-on blood-type/personality jokes, and even a stab at the popularity of Bae Yong Joon.

    Although I've tried to tread as lightly as I can in spoiler territory, it's not hard to infer exactly what secrets Mi Na is hiding. In fact, the film tips its hand fairly early into the picture. This isn't some Audition-level 180-degree turn meant to shock the heck out of the audience. Instead, My Sweet Yet, Brutal Sweetheart aims to deliver an absorbing romance, a gut-busting comedy, and suspenseful thriller all in one package. And guess what? The filmmakers more or less succeed.

    This HD-shot movie is reportedly a low budget work, but it certainly doesn't look like one. In fact, the film's trademarked Korean movie "sheen" actually makes the whole experience a bit jarring, as its good looks sometimes belie exactly what's going on in the picture itself. Whatever its genre aspirations, My Sweet, Yet Brutal Sweetheart is a black comedy at heart, able to wring both effective drama and genuine humor from its subject matter, sometimes even at the same time. Park Yong Woo's performance is largely responsible for the film's ability to dramatically multi-task, as he makes for a likeable, if largely irascible everyman. He's not some pretty boy superstar masquerading as the average joe; he's the real deal.

    Kudos should also go to the filmmakers for pushing Mi Na's character to the limit, and not taking the easy way out in terms of her circumstances or her motivations. Things are a bit more complicated and unsettling about the film than one might expect, even as you find yourself laughing all the way to the film's unexpected, oddly gratifying Singapore finale. In fact, there's something a bit unnerving about the ending, a feeling that just wouldn't arise in your average romantic comedy or drama. I don't know if that makes My Sweet, Yet Brutal Sweetheart a great film, but its brilliant knack for working within the formula while turning the whole damn thing on its head sure is fun to watch.

    Amusing but confused romance Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    "My Scary Girl" is an uneven, but entertaining romantic comedy. Park Yong Woo plays a shy university lecturer who is entering his 30s without ever having gone on a date or kissed a woman. The lovely Choi Gang Hee moves into his apartment building and it isn't long before Park is falling all over himself in his clumsy attempts to woo Miss Choi. But there is more to Miss Choi than meets the eye.

    The bumbling romance part of the story works well, but the "scary" aspects of the film never make much sense. One wonders whether the problem arose because of a confused script or bad editing. Nonetheless, I can recommend the film for the nice comedic performances by Mr. Park and Miss Choi.

    SO- SO MOVIE Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    Actually, the movie started with a strong impact and i thought that it would go throughout the whole film. In a way it did, but sometimes its a bit boring. You get lost because ultimately you wouldn't know the reason for her being that kind of girl.

    Excellent! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    The actress wasnt meant to be scary in the first place, its a romantic comedy, and I thought it was done extremely well. With any comedy its personal taste but I really liked it, and the movie itself is obviously by a talented director.
