Yoon Jung mistypes her boyfriend’s number when calling him for phone sex and get’s through to Hyun Seung, a man pining over a prior relationship. At first, she is horrified but the two develop a ph0ne friendship and phone sex relationship ongoing. They arrange to meet and it looks like their relationship is deepening, however, there is still the slight issue of her boyfriend.
For those of you used to the sterile world of Kdramas Korean cinema can be a real eye-opener. With a different target demographic and purpose to Kdramas, there is a lot more variety in stories. The way film airing and ratings work also allows for a lot less censorship than TV allows as a medium. This film is a prime example of that. Sexually open, occasionally scandalous and always funny. The story is simple and the pace fast making this a nice easy watch, just maybe not one to watch with your parents. Ji Sung again shows his acting talent with a vastly different role to what I am used to seeing him as, although clearly showing vulnerability well is a strength of his.
