Professional Review of "Venus Talk (DVD) (2-Disc) (Korea Version)"
Director Kwon Chil In is clearly a man who likes to stick to his favourite subject, namely exploring the experiences of women in modern Korea, following up comedy dramas Singles, Loveholic and Hellcats with more of the same in Venus Talk. This time around he turns his attention to females of a slightly older generation, following a group of fortysomethings as they undergo a variety of trials and tribulations in life, love and work. Kwon managed to pull together some top talent for the lead roles, with the ladies in question being played by three of the country's most acclaimed and popular actresses in Uhm Jung Hwa (Montage), Moon So Ri (Oasis) and Jo Min Soo (Pieta) - fans might also note that the film features popular singer BoA making her movie debut with a minor cameo.
Uhm Jung Hwa plays television producer Shin Hye, the film opening with her having just been dumped by her cheating director boyfriend, who has shacked up with a younger colleague despite her having spent years supporting his career. Understandably furious, she makes things even more complicated by getting drunk and having a one night stand with a junior co-worker called (Lee Jae Yoon, A Company Man), who refuses to accept it as a boozy fling and tries to pressure her into a relationship. Meanwhile, Shin's housewife friend Mi Yeon (Moon So Ri) tries to push her long suffering husband Jae Ho (Lee Sung Min, The Attorney) into having sex three times a week, and caf?owner Hae Young (Jo Min Soo) tries to spend time with her new carpenter boyfriend Sung Jae (Lee Kyoung Young, The Terror Live), her efforts continually thwarted by her grown-up daughter(Jeon Hye Jin, Shadows in the Palace), who refuses to leave home.
Venus Talk is very clearly aimed at the specific audience demographic of older female viewers, which has been increasingly prominent at the Korean box office in recent years. As such, it's not necessarily the most accessible of films, and there's likely to be a fair amount here that won't prove particularly resonant for the average movie-goer, Kwon Chil In as usual going into considerable depth in the latest episode of his ongoing quest to delve into the female psyche. Though the film does feature comedy as well as drama, it's a grounded and realistic affair, and the laughs do mainly come through the recognition of certain situations faced by the protagonists that are likely to be familiar to its desired audience - as a result, much of the humour will also go over the heads of younger or male viewers. Lee Soo Ah's debut screenplay (which won the Grand Prize at the 1st Lotte Entertainment Script Contest) is sharp and insightful, and though the film does fall into the trap of last act melodrama, it's generally engaging and believable in this respect.
To be fair, though lacking in universal appeal, Venus Talk does still have plenty for other viewers to enjoy, mainly thanks to the strong, confident performances of the three female leads, all of whom are on great form. It's very pleasing to see older actresses being given substantial roles rather than just playing the usual motherly figures, and the film wins points for its frank approach to their sex lives, going into detail without ever being patronising or leering. Kwon's matter of fact tackling of the subject matter, whilst perhaps a little on the made for television side gives it an earnest feel, and he gets good value out of the script and from his stars - the film is definitely at its best when Uhm Jung Hwa, Moon So Ri and Jo Min Soo are onscreen together, their scenes featuring real chemistry and some entertaining and witty banter.
Kwon Chil In is not only one of the few directors tackling this kind of material in Korea at the moment, but a thoughtful filmmaker who has a track record of working well with his ensemble casts, and with his actresses in particular. Venus Talk is on par with his previous works, and thanks to the extra lift provided by its star power is very much worth checking out, for those with an interest in this kind of thing at least.

September 24, 2014
After the charming but relatively light and unchallenging Love On-Air, director Kwon Chil In returns to the racy romantic topics he made his name on with Venus Talk. Like 2008's Hellcats, Venus Talk looks at relationships and sexuality from a woman's perspective, this time focusing on three forty-something women who know the importance of having good friends and a healthy sex life. Kwon Chil In's direction is characteristically energetic and well-paced, while Lee Soo Ah's frank script strikes a comfortable balance between humor and drama as the three protagonists face turning points in their lives.
Venus Talk benefits greatly from having three of the best actresses in Korean cinema – Uhm Jung Hwa, Moon So Ri and Jo Min Su – onboard as the straight-talking best friends. Uhm Jung Hwa plays the strong, sexy and super competent career woman who's so proud and professional that she'll even attend the wedding of the man who cheated on her. However, she begins to feel flustered when a one-night fling with a hunky younger colleague develops into something more. Uhm Jung Hwa fits this role so well, she essentially played it again in this year's TV drama Witch's Romance.
Moon So Ri is amusingly over the top as the housewife who dominates in bed and requires sex three times a week, much to her husband's Viagra-fueled chagrin. She's forced to reexamine herself and her marriage when she discovers that even her impotent husband can go astray. As the husband buckling under the stress of his wife's demands, Lee Sung Min gets the most developed male character, though that's not saying much as the film does very much stay with the women.
Jo Min Su affects a slightly childish demeanor as the bakery owner who just wants her grown daughter to get married and move out so that she can live with her boyfriend. Her story turns out to be the most compelling, though, when she's suddenly confronted with a terrible hurdle that many middle-aged people have to face: cancer and its aftermath. While the conflicts of the other two women can come off trivial at times, the depiction of the changes and challenges Jo Min Su's character undergoes is handled in a serious and realistic manner.
Though not without its cliches, Venus Talk engages and entertains overall as a forthright, good-humored discussion on the trials and tribulations, independence and insecurities, of women in their forties. The film's three threads may have very different tones, but the stories come together effectively as shared experiences between the women.

Three love venus needing a talk
From the man behind ‘Singles and ‘Hellcats’ Chil-in Kwon’s new one is now ‘Venus Talk’ (and considering its women’s talk here, the less mentioned about the mispronunciation of the former word the better) odds on three ladies are going to be having some relationship mishaps. Which these three strong willed and united friends do of course, from an age gap relationship, via frustrations with erectile dysfunction to a mother wishing to boot her daughter out of their house to make place for a hot new lover.
Sin-hye (Jung-hwa Uhm) a professional TV producer gets more than a bit miffed when she discovers that her lover as just had a fling with a very young girl he’s also made pregnant. Fuming, ditching and in prickly huff mode Sin-hye suddenly doesn’t have much time for men. But when her young TV video editor assistant Hyeon-seung (Jae-yoon-I Lee) takes a sincere liking and care to Sin-hye, her demeanour mellows, her mood simmers and her passion soars to sizzling crescendo as she deems Hyeon-seung some hot stuff. A secret passionate affair in a cheap motel ensues. Sin-hye believes though that by her vid-editor being a younger man, she desire only a one night stand. But doe eyed Hyeon-seung really does want a serious relationship.
Mi-yeon (So-ri Moon) is a very passionate woman indeed. Three nights a week she prepares herself for steamy sex with her husband Jae-ho (Sung-min Lee) sporting sexy maid costume and kinky attire. But tired Jae-ho as unfortunate trouble with his manhood, it just doesn’t seem to be able to cope with Mi-yeon’s eccentric passions and sex drive – and goes all limp biscuit on him. Secretly Jae-ho uses sex videos, naughty magazines, Viagra and advice to aid and prepare for his nightly moments. But all to no avail. Eventually Jae-ho confesses his weakness to Mi-yeon about his erectile issues, the latter going into military methods of getting Jae-ho’s blood up and running again.
Each night bakery shop owner Hae-yeong (Min-soo Jo) meets up with her new lover Seong-jae (Kyeong-yeong Lee) who both attempt to have decent sex in a cramped car. The vehicle space is more than a pain in the bottom and Hae-yeong just knows that the best place for love is in her own home. Trouble is her daughter is always around. Hae-yeong though decides to place subtle hints to her daughter to find a new flat. But Hae-yeong’s daughter isn’t having it.

Three stars needing a knight
Sex can be a pleasure and also a big problem and in ‘Venus Talk’ it’s as usual - both. But mainly the plot concerns how three mature women cope (and have fun) with over 40+ syndrome, marital/relationship problems and health issues in a paved out world. It’s quite funny for the broad minded and many scenes are what you’d expect from a SK sex comedy rom-com type, but at times somewhat generic in its societal expectations. Well, melodrama really, the inner circle of marital pattern and the pre-convinced idea that age, work and marriage can lead to unhealthy expectations is a think norm difficult to break. It shouldn’t have to be such expectations of course. Still, Sin-hye’s determined character does seem as if she wants to break out of her own matrix at the latter part. Jung-hwa’s character here isn’t a happy bunny though that’s for sure and Sin-hye is a serious woman even with the funny bits like when she catches bed bugs from a quilt after her time with her young video editor lover at a cheap motel; Sin-hye scratching frantically at work and at a nightclub which visually seems all funny. But Sin-hye is not amused much, even though Jung-hwa performs her drollness well and Sin-hye landing one hot young fella, her determined professional career woman character is really peeved with her lot. To contrast this, and also to bolster her proud reflective nature, Mi-yeon and Hae-yeong create that bright spark and faithfulness in Sin-hye – that a solitary sense of the scary and the ridiculous is shared by her other close friends with their own individual relation and health problems. With health inducing laughter, causal mockery and wit.
All three actresses here are great and certainly the funniest is So-ri Moon’s sex driven Mi-yeon trying to get her husband’s turnip back on sale again and other shenanigans that ensue (and you do need to have a broad sense of humour here). Hae-yeong’s character has the most emotional spectrum with humour of trying to get Hae-yeong’s daughter out of the house to her scary situation with ill health and her very difficult but caring relationship with Seong-jae. Jung-hwa is always great and her soft voice is balm for my ears any day! No doubt ‘Venus Talk’ is a women’s movie and a recommend one at that. Fellas can watch it too of course...:D
For this edition I also had one autographed card out of the 5 (this first edition of course) of So-ri Moon...daren’t think what that means considering her hubbies condition D:
