  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Marbling"

      Mal-Hee (played by Hwang Woo-seul-hye) is a thirty three year old statistics teacher who's never even so much as kissed a guy. But honestly, the woman has bigger problems than that.

The premise behind "How to Use Guys with Secret Tips" is pretty straightforward. The title sums up all you really need to know. But even though the concept is strong enough on its own, director Lee Won-seok is determined lay out as much of the plot in as stylish and mind-bending a way as he can think of. That's definitely the strong point of this movie, is that it just has so much fun with its vintage backdrop, that the cheery mood becomes infectious. The characters in the movie know exactly how dumb the idea of using guys with secret tips sounds,...More
