"Villain and Widow" (2010)
Directed by Son Jae-gon
With Han Seok-Kyu, Kim Hye-soo, Ji Woo, Kim Gi-cheon, Lee Yong-nyeo, Lee Jang-woo,...
Also known as "Villain on the Second Floor"
Han Seok-Kyu, the charismatic South Korean spy in 1999's "Shiri", and Kim Hye-soo, the seductress in 2006's "Tazza: The High Rollers", team up as an odd landlord-tenant couple.
Yeon-joo (Kim) is a single mother who lives in a two-story townhouse with her middle school aged daughter.
To pay the bills, she decides to rent out the second floor of the house.
Her tenant is Chang-in (Han), who claims to be a writer. Although he seems like an ordinary guy, Chang-in seems to have come to the house with a purpose, and sneaks around when he can.
That would seem like cause for eviction for most, but Yeon-joo isn't like most landlords and is suffering a bout of depression. Meanwhile, her daughter is going through a normal teenage obsession with her looks, so she doesn't notice his odd behavior either.
But even though neither one of them is actively trying to put a stop to Chang-in's behavior, their respective problems serve to thwart his plans.
What does Chang-in want from Yun-ju's house? Who is he? The mystery unfolds with comical scenes between Yun-ju and Chang-in.

Intention of this drama
For all the situations, assailant and victim are divided. We want to show an uncertain limit of victim and assailant. As time passes, people want to live 'ordinarily'. But as we live normally, aren't we becoming unhappy? We want for people to feel happy and satisfying with their lives after they watch Je-gi, and the ending of the drama.

With Song Hye-kyo,...
"Fetish" is a co-production between South Korea and the USA
Also known as "Make Yourself at Home" (시집)
"Fetish" is feature debut of the director Soopum Sohn, who was invited to PIFF and Cannes with his short [Fish in the Sea Is Not Thirsty] in 2000. The film has been noted since its early production stage starring the celebrated Korean actress Song Hye-kyo. In the upper class suburbs of New Jersey, Korean-American Peter is starting a new life with his mysterious bride, Sookhy, whom he met through a marriage broker in Korea. She chose this foreign country to avoid the power of shamanism, but her fate doesn't let her run way from it. The film portraits church-based Korean communities in states, where the traditional values are rather ignored by American pragmatism and conflict arises between two different cultures-orient and occident. The two cultures get close and wrecked, just as Sookhy tries to be American woman imitating her neighbor Julie. "Fetish" surprises and confuses the audience with its complexities of cultural context and religious madness.
