Love Fiction (러브픽션)

러브픽션 (Leo-beu-pik-syeon)

Directed by Jeon Gye-soo (전계수)

Screenplay by

Melodrama Romance

121min | Release date in South Korea :

Many male audiences who saw 500 Days
of Summer must have felt that Summer, who was the dominant figure in the relationship, as a cold-hearted woman. Love Fiction is the opposite, a romantic comedy sticking strictly to the man's view of the relationship. An unknown novelist Ju-wol (Ha Jeong-woo) falls in love at first sight with Hee-jin (Kong Hyo-jin) who works at a film importing company when the two meet at a book expo. After a series of dates, they become lovers. Yet unlike Hee-jin, who is looking for a down-to- earth relationship, Ju-wol is unhappy with everything Hee-jin does and the two begin to drift apart. The film is seen only from Ju-wol’s perspective, regarding the course of how a couple’s relationship begins and ends. This film was uniquely constructed by adding the fantasy where complex inner side of Ju-wol is displayed through conversation shared with an imaginary character ' M '. It is Jeon Gye-soo's third film following his musical film "The Ghost Theater" and the realistic love story in the style of director HONG Sang-soo with "Lost and Found - 2010". Encounter of Ha Jeong-woo from "The Yellow Sea" and "The Chaser", with Kong Hyo-jin, who's enjoying her big popularity from her TV romantic character will surely be interesting enough.

  • Hilarious Ha steals show in 'KUNDO' comedy

    2014/07/16, Source,
    There are few actors who can pull off comedy, drama and action, especially in one film. And in that respect, there is probably no one better suited to play cleaver-wielding maniac Do-chi in "KUNDO : Age of the Rampant" than Ha Jeong-woo. In the last few years, Ha has shown he is more than a winning choice, taking on drama in "The Terror Live", action in "The Berlin File" and comedy in "Love Fiction". In his latest work, which is yet another collaboration with Yoon Jong-bin, who he's worked with on countless films such as "Nameless Gangster" and "The Unforgiven", Ha again shows the extremity of his acting range and that comedy is his game above all,...More
  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Jo Hee-bong

    Stardom is a tricky thing in any big industry. Depending on where it places its importance, there are different requirements for creating a star. Some actors work hard to get there, some go by popularity alone and without their skills necessarily being worth their success. But as important as all types of stars are, they would not matter without all of the supporting actors that enrich the world of each work. Jo Hee-bong is one of those actors,...More

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Ghost Theater"

    Korea is no stranger to the genre of horror. But a horror musical film is not something you come across. Maybe because musicals are part of Korea's entertainment scene, musical movies have not managed to entice audiences. Film and theater offer very different experiences, after all. Jeon Gye-soo ('Love Fiction') and 'The Ghost Theater' bring horror musicals to the big screen, with enjoyable results,...More
