"Life is Peachy" (2010)

Directed by Kim Soo-hyeon

With Kim Hyo-jin, Kim Kkobbi, Seo Hyun-jin, Kim Sang-hyeon, Choi Min-yong, Kim Sun-hyuk,...

Synopsis
What is it like when you love a woman?
Yoon Ji-woo, who had been plotting a fake suicide with pickpocket Kang Ji-woo, is cuffed by detective Min-yong and falls in love as destined. Jeong Ji-woo and Hee-jin hear about their love story and start asking questions. Director Kim Soo-hyeon's latest film, "Life is Peachy", is a story about three people, all named Ji-woo, that brings a new approach to presenting the sentiment of love through the language and bodies of women. Did they truly fall in love? Did they tell the truth? "Ashamed" travels between reality and fiction as it caresses the wounds and memories of love.
While her first film "So Cute" (2004) was a story of a father, a son and the woman between them, "Ashamed" addresses of the pain and reconciliation among a group of women. Kim's narrative is subtle and very unique in its delivery of familiar emotions into a new kind of experience, proving Kim is a filmmaker that possess a rare sentimentality in Korean cinema.

"Red Vacance Black Wedding" (2011)

Directed by Kim Tae-sik, Park Chul-soo

With Ahn Ji-hye, Lee Jin-joo, Oh In-hye, Jo Sun-mook,...

Synopsis
2007 APM (aka. PPP) Project
Once having worked as director and assistant director, the two directors now come together in this 'relay movie' about an immoral liaison. The title is not the only provocative part about this movie. So is the actual narrative and level of expressions. It is comparable in many ways with [From Seoul to Varanasi], from its perspective on immorality to the way it captures the naked body, but it is completely different in style and flavor. Unlike [From Seoul to Varanasi], which is suggestive yet frankly honest, this movie is more of a comic melodrama, with an erotic touch here and there.
The well thought out vacation plans of an immoral couple is ruined when the husband's wife joins in. It is truly a damned vacation([Red Vacance], Kim Tae-sik). As a professor, he officiated the wedding of his lover and student. That night, she does not go to her honeymoon, but visits him([Black Wedding], Park Chul-soo). The movie is structured in an experimental manner, mixing fiction and documentary, but the simple and frank straightforwardness in the performances is unexpectedly refreshing. The impassioned performance of the forever supporting actor Jo Sun-mook, who this time plays the role of the man in both episodes, is worthy of a 'rediscovery'. (JEON Chanil)
