YesAsia Editorial Description

Jung Yoo Mi (Oki's Movie) is the eponymous heroine Sunhi, an indecisive film major who has been unsure of what to do next since graduating. Having finally made up her mind to go study abroad, she returns to her university to get a recommendation letter from her professor (Kim Sang Joong), who happens to like her. On her campus visit, she crosses paths with two other directors who also carry torches for her. They're all quick to share their thoughts on who Sunhi is and what's best for her, but what does Sunhi herself think? Hong Sang Soo's 15th film Our Sunhi continues the indie auteur's themes of elliptical relationships, self-involved men pining after an unreadable woman and much ado about nothing in academic filmmaking circles. Besides Hong Sang Soo regulars Jung Yoo Mi, Lee Seon Gyun, Kim Sang Joong and Ye Ji Won, acclaimed actor Jung Jae Young also joins the cast of Our Sunhi.

Professional Review of "Our Sunhi (2013) (DVD) (Taiwan Version)"

January 20, 2014

This professional review refers to Our Sunhi (DVD) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Acclaimed Korean auteur Hong Sang Soo returns with his 15th feature, Our Sunhi which like his other 2013 outing Nobody's Daughter Haewon sees him following a female protagonist on a personal journey and search for identity. With Jung Yoo Mi, star of Hong's Oki's Movie in the lead, the director teams again with a crowd of his usual collaborators, including Lee Seon Gyun, Kim Sang Joong and Ye Ji Won, who are joined by popular actor Jung Jae Young (Moss) as one of Sunhi's potential suitors. As with all of his works, the film played at various international festivals, with Hong winning the Silver Leopard award for Best Director at the 66th Locarno International Film Festival.

Jung Yoo Mi plays the Sunhi of the title, a film school graduate trying to decide what to do with her life. Having made up her mind to study overseas in the US, she heads to her university to get a recommendation letter from her former professor Choi (Kim Sang Joong). Although he agrees to do the letter, he warns her that she might not like what he writes, and it's clear that there is some kind of unresolved tension between the two. From there, Sunhi goes drinking by herself in a nearby chicken restaurant, where she calls her ex-boyfriend and amateur film maker Munsu (Lee Seon Gyun) to join her, and the two talk about the past and future. Munsu then goes to meet fellow director Jaehak (Jung Jae Young), who also happens to be a friend of Choi, and who later ends up meeting Sunhi. With the three men having their own ideas about her character and life, the question arises as to what Sunhi herself thinks.

Following on from the excellent Nobody's Daughter Haewon, Our Sunhi again shows Hong Sang Soo becoming very talented at exploring the psyche of modern Korean women - albeit in part knowingly and occasionally ironically from a male point of view. The film is very much in line with his other works, and sees him turning his usual themes and playful techniques to this female perspective, and it features the same kind of overlapping relationships, repeated conversations, and cyclical coincidences that viewers have come to expect from the director. Of course, the film also packs in plenty of drinking, with most of its conversations taking place over a great many glasses of alcohol. Though there's familiarity here, Hong is one of those directors whose approach always feels fresh and engaging, and the film has a beautiful sense of surface simplicity, both in terms of its structure and visuals, featuring some lovely shots of scenery that give it a laid back sense of place.

As usual, Hong lets his characters drive the film, and though she's not always on-screen, the film is very much centred on Sunhi and her vague quest for self-knowledge. While her personal journey, in the usual manner of the director, is unfocused, whimsical and obtuse, without obvious answers or resolutions, it's at the same time very rewarding and emotionally rich, in its own abstract kind of way. There's a great deal of duplicity and duality throughout, mainly on behalf of the amusingly self-involved male characters, all of whom seem to change their opinions of Sunhi during their conversations, shifting from calling her weak and indecisive before declaring their affection and respect for her - seen in particular in the professor's recommendation letters and her drunken meeting with Munsu. As well as exploring the extent to which Sunhi (and possibly women in general) has been, or indeed has allowed herself to be defined by the questionably motivated dictates of incompetent others, the film also pokes gentle fun at the male ego, the guys who revolve around her all being pompous, insecure film makers and academics who clearly don't have much of a clue themselves. This makes for some very funny scenes, and Hong as ever shows a sly, though gentle sense of humour that's consistently rings true without ever seeming too mean-spirited.

With great performances from Jung Yoo Mi in the lead and from Lee Seon Gyun, Kim Sang Joong and Jung Jae Young, Our Sunhi is another highly accomplished and entertaining outing from Hong Sang Soo, whose status as one of Korea's most talented living directors is by now unquestionable. Insightful, intelligent and with a deceptively light touch, the film is a must-see for fans of Hong, as well as a very accessible starting point for newcomers to his work.

Sunhi and her three wise men (A) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
After disappearing for a time film graduate Sunhi (Yoo-mi Jung) returns to her University to ask her former professor Choi (Sang Joong Kim) for a reference letter to further fulfil her film school study abroad. But the tense prof is bemused at Sunhi’s isolated disappearance and suggests Sunhi to reconsider studying abroad, advising his reference letter might not be to Sunhi’s liking regarding her mixed personality. Sunhi is okay with that, but later put out when reading the professor’s written considerations, unsure why professor Choi had written of her as ‘reserved’ and other little niggly ‘weaknesses’. To shake off her crestfallen disposition, Sunhi goes to a local chicken restaurant to drink alcohol, but is asked by the waitress to order chicken as well. This dampens Sunhi’s already grey mood having already eaten (chicken probably). But looking from the restaurant’s top window to the street below Sunhi spots Munsu (Seon Gyun Lee) a post University graduate ex-boyfriend of hers and amateur film maker and calls Munsu to join her for drinks (and chicken). But a tense filled conversation soon turns to irritable disparagement when both are quite Soju and beer filled, Sunhi disliking Munsu’s new haughty nature now he’s a qualified film maker and Munsu perplexed by Sunhi’s ill judgment of his character. But Munsu’s criticized bewilderment is further to Sunhi’s previous avoidance of him (as much as Sunhi’s avoidance of everyone when she disappears for a long time) that is quickly consistent as Sunhi decides to leave Munsu alone in the restaurant, as a leitmotiv song of romantic reminiscence of more ‘greener’ days is played contrasting the dissatisfied moods.

So Munsu seeks conversational solace of Sunhi’s rejection with fellow film director Jaehak (Jae-young Jung), who albeit chagrined at such a meeting both head to the Arirang cafe to drink beer/soju and eat chicken. Jaehak also knows Sunhi and both cogitate about Sunhi’s mixed uncertainties with equal moody opinion; Munsu aggrieved at Jaehak’s persistence that Munsu doesn’t understand Sunhi’s feminine ways enough and needs to dig more into his own depths to understand why Sunhi feels about him like she does. Likewise professor Choi meeting up again with Sunhi at a cafe agrees to write a more palatable reference letter, Sunhi mentions to the professor when he’d gently squeezed her hand in reassurance one winter day at the University, the conversation revealing unresolved relations between the two.

Sunhi and her three wise men (B) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I enjoyed ‘Our Sunhi’ and I thought by the strong cast and DVD menu and opening music that this film was going to meet expectation nicely, and here again absorbing Sang Soo Hong intricacies of what an emotionally mixed up bunch of contradictive humans we can be. There’s also a couple of gentle tunes in ‘Our Sunhi’ your head won’t easily forget either. The plot isn’t the main thing as its mostly drinking alcohol time amidst protracted conversations relating to those familiar old Sang Soo Hong chestnuts – ‘erratic’ women, film students, film professors, questioning relationships, mixed up feelings and erroneous understanding, envy of personal freedom and the insecure bearing of what other people outside of your own head really, really want. Coincidences, too, like the dialogue repetition in a scene in the Arriang cafe which is almost replicated between Monsu and Jaehak and Sunhi and Jaehak later on. Ha! Sang-soo Hong’s movies are a unique delight and part humorous and ‘Our Sunhi’ continues in this ‘painful’ light with its troubled and wandering men folk (and as much troubled female protagonists) and one of the most likeable, easiest movies Sang Soo Hong as made yet. Sunhi - is she trying to escape unwanted male emotional attention by disappearing for long periods of time or really wanting to study abroad? She’s a mystery.

Munsu, Jaehak and professor Choi seem like three differing versions of one frustrated man. All male colleagues but conflicting and holding personal but similar cards to their chests about their emotional feelings for the illusive Sunhi. Trying to pin down by conflictual group opinion what Sunhi really wants in life, but reflecting her loneliness by not being quite sure what love they want out of life either. But men who don’t have to get pregnant and tied down they respect Sunhi’s independent spirit and reserved self determination to do whatever she pleases. No doubt here are very quirky idiosyncratic overtones reflecting human complexities, contradictive feelings and the goals of happiness, rough riding the channels of societal establishment and the commitments of marriage, and downturned to drinking debates in perturbed and concerned ways of what isn’t to be really took so seriously. ‘Our Sunhi’ is another good talking heads movie asking for a subtle sense of humour to appreciate and the mirrored ironies are perfectly representative of many human life interactions. Plus drunking and eating lots of chicken, too! A bit of a gem!
