Storyline

On a space station in the not-too-distant future, two guests arrive early for a wedding, and the older tells the younger a story about the groom's father, who had been a well-known entertainer, and his selfish wife. The story, which starts in Seoul in 2002, is a bizarre love triangle of a comedian who never smiles, a Taekwondo instructor, and a whining woman who wants to be a TV star but who'll do anything to avoid being poor. Before the story ends with the wedding, there are jail sentences, a fatherless baby who needs a bone marrow transplant, a blind and forgiving masseuse, an abused melon, and lovers caught in flagrante delicto.

Not so bad
10 May 2005 | by Sysel_CZSee all my reviews

Before watching this movie, I read the comment here and the vote summary, and I thought it would be the worst movie ever. But the truth is that it's not.

Bizarre love triangle is not an excellent movie in any way; it can be bad if it's treated as a comedy, maybe. When I finally watched it, I forgot that it should be comedy; I assumed it's a little bit cheesy drama, and it was alright.

There are some laughs, there are some sad events, I've definitely seen much worse pieces of cinema.

I can't fully recommend it, but it's a fine movie when you've nothing else to do.
