YesAsia Editorial Description

Follow the trials, trysts, and tribulations of four beautiful singles feeling the pinch of growing up in smash hit Korean comedy Singles from director Kwon Chil In (Hellcats). Tapping into the psyche of Korea's young adults, this sharp, intelligent and sexy comedy confronts the issues of growing up and taking responsibility with wit and style. Featuring a beautiful, talented cast and shot through with a knowing and hip sense of humor, it is no surprise that Singles was one of Korea's biggest hits of 2003.

After Na Nan (Jang Jin Young, Over the Rainbow) loses her job and her boyfriend in the same day, she has only one place to turn to, her best friends Dong Mi (the gorgeous Uhm Jung Hwa, For Horowitz) and Jung Joon (Lee Bum Soo, The City of Violence). These three friends have supported each other since childhood and must now face the daunting World of single life, and the anxieties surrounding it, as they fast approach 30.

Dong Mi is the antithesis of the shy and vulnerable Na Nan. She knows what she wants and she knows how to get it. A serial man-eater, she's had 46 lovers and counting - and she couldn't care less who knows about it. Jung Joon, on the other hand, is anything but a player. He spends his days doting on his younger girlfriend, much to his friends' dismay, until she unceremoniously dumps him for another man anyway. However, his refreshingly kind-hearted nature is not lost on Dong Mi - until one night of reckless passion forces them to re-evaluate their relationship.

Meanwhile, Na Nan is experiencing problems of her own. Forced to take a restaurant manager's job that she hates, she must then contend with "Mr. Charm" Soo Heon (Kim Joo Hyuk, My Wife Got Married), who appears on the scene and sets his sights squarely on her. Who ever said single life was easy?

용돈 대신 월급이라는 걸 받아먹기 시작하면서 “굿모닝” 이게 뭔지 까먹었다. 매일 아침 눈을 뜨는 순간, 나는 서로 해결해달라고 아우성 치는 문제들에 직면했다. 큰 걸을 볼 것인가 말 것인가, 머리를 감을 것인가 말 것인가? 제빨리 결정하는 것부터가 그 시작이다. 29살 나난 (장진영 분). 머리에 동전 크기만한 원형 탈모를 발견한, 불길함이 엄습하는 어느 날. 몇 년째 믿고 사귀던 애인이 던지는 일방적인 한마디, 우리 그만 헤어져. 하늘이 무너져도 솟아날 구멍이?... 없다. 회사에는 떡 하니 붙은 좌천 공고. "디자이너 나난 a 레스토랑 매니저" 이건 바로 회사에서도 짤리는 소리. 아, 억울해. 이대로 당할 수 만은 없다. 심호흡 한번 크게 하고 입술을 꽉 물고는 상무실을 박차고 들어간다.

나난의 친구인 워킹우먼 동미(엄정화 분). 오는 남자 마다 않고 가는 남자 잡지 않는 자유롭고 개방적인 그녀. 하지만 화통한 성격으로 일도 잘하고 이성, 동성 친구 많은 멋진 Girl이다. 이런 그녀에게 회사 일을 빌미로 느끼하게 작업을 걸어오는 팀장이 있었으니. 어느 날 회의실에서 작업을 거는 팀장, 그러자 동미는 "저도 팀장님을 위해 특별히 준비한 액션 플랜이 있는데..." 라며 그의 바지를 벗기고... 동미의 룸메이트이자 나난의 불알친구 정준(이범수 분). 착한 남자 정준이 여우 같은 어린 여자(한지혜 분)에게 딱 걸려서 허우적 대고 있다.

결혼은 돈많은 남자랑, 연애는 착한 정준이랑 한다는 어린 그녀. 그녀의 말에 동미와 나난은 한마디. 야야, 정신차려! 넌 그냥 단물 빨리는 껌이야! 애꿎은 친구들에게 벌컥 화도 내보지만 답답한 건 바로 정준. 그녀와 힘든 줄다리기를 계속하던 그 어느날, 정준은 동미에게서 그녀의 향기를 느끼게 되고! 꽃미남은 아니지만 은근히 섹시한 용모, 느끼하게 작업하지만 왠지 밉지 않은 귀염성까지 갖추고, 알고 보니 잘나가는 증권맨 수헌(김주혁 분). 그런 그가 출근 시간 엘리베이터에서 우연히 만난 나난에게 한눈에 꽂혀버렸다. 자존심 다 버리고 레스토랑에 매일같이 출근해서 눈도장을 찍고, 작업 멘트를 날려도, 이 둔한 여자, 넘어 올 줄을 모른다.

Professional Review of "Singles (2003) (Blu-ray) (Korea Version)"

September 5, 2005

This professional review refers to Singles (DVD) (US version)
Four glossily attractive folks try to cope with the rigors of modern life in Singles, the hit 2003 romantic comedy from director Kwon Chil In. Although it features an ensemble cast, the film centers on Na Nan, a mousy, girl-next-door type played by the cute-as-a-button Chang Jin Yeong (from The Foul King and Sorum). On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Na Nan watches helplessly as her life takes a dramatic downturn. In a puzzling twist of fate, she gets demoted from her position as a designer and gets reassigned to - get this - a crap job at a Chili's restaurant. Who knew that Chili's manager was the bottom rung on the corporate ladder? Things don't get much better when Na Nan's boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, a move that leaves the pixyish heroine a complete emotional wreck.

Luckily, she's got a couple friends who'll listen to her problems. First, there's her best gal pal Dong Mi (Uhm Jeong Hwa, from Marriage is a Crazy Thing), a serial dater who's also looking for love and isn't afraid to give Na Nan a piece of her mind with regard to her views on love, life, and relationships. Dong-Mi lives with her platonic male roommate Jeong Joon (Lee Bum Su, from Wet Dreams), and the two share a classic love-hate relationship. They bicker like an old married couple, a fact that should signal to even the most naïve audience that sparks are about to fly between the two. But Jeong Joon has problems of his own as well. He's fallen completely in love with his young girlfriend (Han Ji Hye in a quick cameo) whose cutesy demeanor masks a more venomous persona underneath. Dong Mi tries to warn Jeong Joon about her, but he won't listen. Jeong Joon is too nice a guy, and nice guys in these situations tend to get hurt. Jeong Joon is no exception. The fallout of this relationship will have dramatic consequences for the two once-platonic roommates who finally succumb to the feelings that have been bubbling under the surface for a long time.

Meanwhile, Na Nan's dire job and boyfriend situation attracts the attention of Su Hyeon (Kim Ju Hyeok), a blankly good-looking, all-around nice guy who's obviously got a crush on our leading lady. Although she seems to rebuff his every attempt, Su Hyeon, in his own weird way, tries his best to win Na Nan's heart. After some effort, he seems to succeed and summarily offers Na Nan everything she's ever wanted: marriage, a stable future, and a chance to study fashion in New York. But is that what Na Nan really wants? Or does she want to grab her future on her own terms? And how will Dong Mi and Jeong Joon deal with the consequences of their one night of passion?

The way the narrative ultimately answers these questions is unconventional to be sure, but not entirely unexpected. This breaking of formula should appeal to viewers who don't necessarily need or want everything tied up neatly by story's end. But those looking for a sense of definitive closure may be a little disappointed. Even so, Singles seems to be a film that tries, in its own way, to be different than the rest of the pack. Although not as overt in its mocking as the hilarious romantic comedy Someone Special would later prove to be, Singles also gets some mileage out of parodying certain conventions prevalent in Korean melodramas. In many ways, it's not just these specific references, but what the film doesn't resort to using that makes it an effective commentary on the falsity of resolution in some romances, Korean or otherwise. Although the film is certainly plotted, there's the sense that it's trying to provide "a slice of life" in presenting its tale of four very different, but connected souls. The movie's open-endedness suggests that there's still more of the story to be told and that whatever the protagonists have decided, there's no guarantee that everything will work out - much like what happens in real life. We live with the choices we make and simply do the best we can.

Although the film possesses a seeming double plot, the relationship between Na Nan and Su Hyeon takes precedence over the intriguing turn of events that occurs between Dong Mi and Jeong Joon. This is an unfortunate storytelling decision, if for no other reason than the roommates' storyline is infinitely more compelling than the other couple's romance. Lee Bum Su and Uhm Jung Hwa share a winning chemistry, and their fateful one-night stand is handled with a surprising maturity and wit, although the resolution of their storyline leaves something to be desired. It's clear what the filmmakers were trying to accomplish; it's just a shame to see that a character is ultimately left in the dark about some very important things. The film's implicit open-endedness, along with the fact that the two propose to remain friends, leaves the door open for more interaction between them, but sadly, that story is not present in Singles. Certainly the film would have benefited immensely from not putting so much weight on Na Nan and her fateful decision (which isn't that surprising), and split its focus more evenly among its four cast members. The film's title is Singles in the plural after all, not Single Korean Female. Even so, Chang Jin Yeong proves to be an effective leading lady more than worthy of her Best Actress prize at the Blue Dragon Film Awards. Unlike many young actresses, she is able to make her character instantly loveable and charming without being overly cutesy or cloying.

But even with my complaints about the muted subplot between Dong Mi and Jeong Joon, there's a whole lot to like about Singles. Although the film examines such serious issues as love, marriage, career choices, and unplanned parenthood, Singles is by no means a sober look at urban life in Korea. In the end, it's simply a breezy little film about people who realize they've been drifting through life, and that now it's finally time to make a change. Thanks to its immensely likeable cast, Singles is a charming film that, unlike a lot of the tiresome, formulaic romantic comedies out there, proves to be a worthwhile viewing experience.

Glossy trash Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
"Singles" collects all of the foolishness, loose morals, and bad advice of contemporary urban middle class life, wraps them in a shiny bow, and offers them as light entertainment. Traditional concepts of dating, courtship, and marriage are cast aside and replaced with an "if it feels good, do it" ethic.

The director of "Singles" described it as "a growing up film." I couldn't disagree more. The films' two female leads from start to finish are driven by their momentary whims. They show no growth whatsoever. Their giddy optimism at film's end is foolishly misplaced.

Jang Jin Young and Uhm Jung Hwa provide very nice eye candy and there are some engaging and funny individual scenes in "Singles". But at its dishonest heart, this movie is selling a self-destructive lifestyle. I cannot recommend it.

It's cute, but why the deletion? Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Haved seen this movie reviewed on many Korean TV Entertainment shows, I decided to get it. I found it rather odd that Uhm Jung Hwa's whipped cream (yogurt) scene was left on the cutting room floor. The two reviews showed it part of the movie. You can still see it, but it's an extra on the 2nd DVD. At least you get the great Music Video by Loveholic -- also on the 2nd DVD.

Don't miss it Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This is one of the excellent film that I have seen. This film is full of energy, especially the energy of 29. All Four artist has a great performance, especially Chang Jin Young. She can totally illustrate the characteristic of a modern lady life style ==> individual and optimestic, but lack of confident to love.
