YesAsia Editorial Description

A box office hit in Korea, Love Fiction realistically follows the stages of a relationship, from love at first sight and courtship to affection and fallout. Ha Jung Woo (Yellow Sea) and Kong Hyo Jin (Crush and Blush) star in this charming yet biting romantic comedy directed by Jeon Gye Soo (Midnight Ballad for Ghost Theater). Told mainly from the perspective of Ha Jung Woo's struggling novelist, the film reveals what goes on inside the oft-immature male mind through narrative voice-over and amusing noir parodies of his detective novel alter ego and the mysterious women in his life. Rising actress Yoo In Na (Secret Garden) also co-stars as the ex-girlfriend.

Failed writer Jool Wol (Ha Jung Woo) needs romance in his life so he can have inspiration for his novel. At a party in Berlin, he falls head over heels for film distributor Hee Jin (Kong Hyo Jin). From her straight-talking manner to her interest in nude photography, Hee Jin walks to a different beat, and Jool Wol is completely smitten. With Hee Jin as his muse, he's also finally over his writer's block. But the rosy relationship begins to go downhill when Jool Wol realizes Hee Jin isn't as perfect as he imagined.

말빨은 죽이지만 성격은 죽여주지 못하는
소심한 남자의 판타스틱 연애 이야기

드디어 본격적으로 시작된 사랑스런 그녀와의 연애. 그녀를 곁에 둘 수 있다면 목숨도 아깝지 않을 월주는 끓어오르는 사랑과 넘치는 창작열에 마냥 행복하기만 하다. 그러나 시간이 지날수록 그녀의 이상한 취미, 남다른 식성, 인정하기 싫은 과거 등 완벽할 거라고 생각했던 희진에게 너무나 많은 단점이 있음을 알게 된다.

하나부터 열까지 소심하고 찌질한 이 남자, 과연 그는 모든 고비를 이겨내고 평생을 꿈꿔왔던 연애에 성공할 수 있을까?

Professional Review of "Love Fiction (DVD) (Korea Version)"

July 20, 2012

Although the idea of yet another Korean romantic comedy might not exactly set the pulse racing, Love Fiction does have something a little different to offer, attempting to follow realistically the many ups and downs of modern relationships, told chiefly from the point of view of the man. The latest offering from writer director Jeon Gye Soo, (Lost and Found,Midnight Ballad for Ghost Theater), the film features Ha Jung Woo (The Yellow Sea) as its male lead, with actress Kong Hyo Jin (Crush and Blush) as the object of his affection. Korean audiences were certainly taken with its blend of humour, romance and incisive commentary on the male psyche, and the film scored big at the box office, with over 1 million admissions in its first week.

Ha Jung Woo plays Jool Wol, a 31 year old struggling writer and part time bartender, who blames his lack of success on his inability to find true love. Things seem to be looking up when he meets film distributor Hee Jin (Kong Hyo Jin) while on a business trip to Berlin, and somehow manages to woo her into dating with his odd sense of humour. Although it feels very much like love at first sight and his writing starts to take off, Jool Wol starts finding out some surprising and less than positive facts about his new squeeze, and their blossoming relationship soon hits a rocky patch.

Love Fiction has been described as being a sort of male version of Bridget Jones's Diary and as unpalatable as this sounds, the comparison is pretty apt, as the film plays out almost entirely from Joon Wol's perspective, and is tied together by his voice over narration and flights of fantasy. This works very well, and the film as result should speak to a far wider audience than the usual romantic comedy crowd - perhaps tellingly, Jeon Gye Soo apparently wrote the script back in 2007 but couldn't get producers interested until 2011 due to its differences with most cutesy or Sassy Girl style genre efforts. An examination of the male psyche and loneliness as much as a rom com, the film still does deliver in terms of amour and relationship intrigue, and all the more moving and affecting for its general avoidance of soppy melodrama. The film really is also pretty funny, in an offbeat (though thankfully not forcedly quirky) manner, blending in plenty of comedy along the way and helping to keep the fun factor high throughout - even if the script shows a very odd fascination with the concept of Hee Jin having armpit hair.

Given its near-complete reliance on its male protagonist, it's fortunate that Ha Jung Woo is excellent as Jool Wol, making him likeable despite his many (many) flaws and personality defects. The film is pleasingly honest and balanced in its depiction of him, gradually stripping away and revealing the insecurity behind his idealised views on love and his own image, and being clear in pointing the finger of blame at him for many of the problems which arise in his relationship with Hee Jin. Kong Hyo Jin is also great, and does a fine job as Hee Jin, making her similarly realistic and more grounded than the average romantic heroine. Their pairing has genuine chemistry, and this again ensures that the film is both entertaining and believable.

The film's only real issue is that at just over 2 hours, it really does go on a little long, and though it's never dull, it tends to meander somewhat during its middle act. More specifically, it could definitely have done without some of Jool Wol's novel related fantasy sequences involving his detective alter ego, as while mildly amusing they don't add anything to the plot or understanding of his character. Also unnecessary are the frequent appearances of veteran Lee Byung Joon as an imaginary figure he talks to and gets relationship advice from - again, though not particularly offensive, this does detract from the film's otherwise down to earth feel.

Still, these aren't enough to derail things, and Love Fiction is very much a superior and more substantial example of the modern Korean romantic comedy. Jeon Gye Soo writes and directs with imagination and skill, and the film benefits from a charismatic central couple in Ha Jung Woo and Kong Hyo Jin, helping to make the film one of the few to stand a real chance of appealing to non-genre fans and well-deserving of its box office success.

Fiction Romance - first act Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Jool-wol (Jung-woo Ha) is having writer’s block bother with his new detective novel and needs a strong impetus (a knockout visual image) to get his creative juices flowing again. But what this actually translates to is that Jool-wol needs a new love in his life, after his girl friend ditched him over his phobia about eating meat. In fact losing his girl, lessens Jool-wol’s muse power. Working also as a part time bar man, Jool-wol confides (and bemoans) with his club rock band mates ‘Yellow Submarine’ about needing a strong inspiration to kick-start his romantic noir styled detective novel. But Jool-wol’s band mates aren’t seriously sympathetic, taking the urinal regularly out of Jool-wol’s love-lorn and ‘poet at a loss’ predicament. But things change dramatically when Jool-wol goes on a movie industry business trip to Germany with his magazine publisher (Hea-bong Jo). Bored by a final day party of film professionals and the like, Jool-wol strolls out onto a balcony where he meets Hee-jin (Hyo-jin Kong) a foreign movie importer. On first seeing Hee-jin outside the business centre smoking her cigarette, Jool-wol is instantly smitten (his strong needful image arrives!) and he soon concocts a poetic and clever letter of smitten-ness (slipped in a bunch of flowers) to Hee-jin after they return to Korea. Hee-jin is certainly smitten, laughs at Jool-wol’s poetic humour and seems everything Jool-wol dreams about, even tolerating his meat fears. They both become an item.

But Hee-jin as strange aspects that torment Jool-wol’s relationship. One is Hee-jin’s under arm hair, which repels Jool-wol when they’re in bed together, but which Jool-wol makes amends by apologising to Hee-jin’s fluffy armpits. Another is Hee-jin’s crude ‘bodily fluid and solids’ stories and along with Jool-wol ‘seeing’ Hee-jin dressed the same as his ex-girl friend as they cross a busy road, don’t help Jool-wol write his book one bit! But a real clincher relates to Hee-jin’s photographic art of taking nude photos for gallery displays. At one point Jool-wol learns in Hee-jin’s past as a school student, she snapped nude students for quick cash. But she also snapped up 31 sexual conquests with male students after the photography sessions; Hee-jin name tagged the School Bus. With cruel fate tormenting Jool-wol when he thought he’d struck gold, then becomes fired up to expresses frustration into his new detective novel about a hairy female serial killer who tricks her lover about her past.

Fiction Romance - second act Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Due to an expected good chemistry between Jung-woo and Hyo-jin as respective romantic oddballs, “Love Fiction” wins over as a crudely humorous movie with interesting character quirks that are deftly woven into Jool-wol’s manic imagination for a noir detective story he tries to write. It also has a good script and subtle and clever humour. One main thing about this film is its tongue in cheek satire about romance and relationships. It takes the piddle out of ‘romance’ that’s for sure, although still favours tenderness at heart (I think). But it’s clever satire especially how Jool-wol’s frustrations about Hee-jin’s under arm hair and her 31 school day lovers are ‘tackled’ in Jool-wol’s detective noir novel with Jool-wol the detective. Quite a lot of funny elements are woven into these ‘noir’ segments and you really have to see this film to appreciate it all. Jool-wol also confides in a muse (his Werther inspiration) who appears throughout as various people to advise Jool-wol, especially about Hee-jin, which lends good humour to the plot. The ‘muse’ even boots Jool-wol up the backside and into some water for him to ‘wake up to love’ and stop being paranoid – interesting when you consider that the ‘muse’ is really Jool-wol himself. Acting and chemistry works well here, too, which I guess you’d expect with Hyo-jin and Jung-woo, and although its no perfect fiction romance, these two guys are great in a movie together. The ‘humiliation’ bit when Jool-wol is plastered nude all around a photographic art gallery is one to be seen (and every fella’s nightmare!) Not a good idea to pose nude for your girlfriend (or boyfriend) when they’re gonna put you on ‘billboard’ display. Especially when Jool-wol gets an ‘award’ for such humiliation, too. Cripes!

This DVD edition also as some good extras to watch, especially the NGs where Hyo-jin just cannot stop laughing at Jung-woo’s greasy rocker get up and hair quiff (Elvis mode I think), with quite a few re-takes as you could imagine. These guys certainly had some fun making this movie. The rock band ‘Yellow Submarine’ are also a good addition (oh that ‘porn’ joke!!), with Hyo-jin dressed in a punky outfit also in one bar scene (she likes punk rock I think). I recommend this film without a shadow of doubt – its enjoyable, quirky, crude, dry humoured but also manic and sweetly funny, but a kooky rom-com film to relax and have fun with. So get this, kick off the shoes and enjoy.
