Movie Review: The Romance (2006) – Korean Movie

The Romance is the perfect title for this film. It’s an intense romantic drama that implores a fight for love.  Bittersweet, ironic and fateful; perhaps the perfect medley for a forbidden love story. Themes explore opposite attractions, unlikely connections, deep attachments and the almighty “power of love”.  The character development and on-screen chemistry are just the cherry on top of an already entertaining melodrama.

“Yoon-hee is so harassed by her husband’s obsession and frantic love, that even breathing is painful to her. One day, her sudden suicide attempt is foiled when someone takes her in his arms and saves her.” (HanCinema)
