Screenplay by , , , ,


113min | Release date in South Korea :

Hyosup is a second class writer whose sole comfort is to write and to love Bokyung, a married woman. Bokyung, a housewife in her 30s, believes she can realize her previous aspirations and tries to escape from her life with Hyosup. Dongwoo is Bokyung's husband, a cowardly and ordinary businessman who always suspects his wife's unfaithfulness. Minjae is a ticket seller at a cinema, dreaming of becoming a writer's wife. Hypocrisy, worldly desires, and complex relations of these four characters either lead viewers into a world of fantasy or make them shudder with disgust.

  • [INTERVIEW] Hong Sang-soo - Part 1

    2010/05/24, Source,
    Director Hong Sang-soo [Beck Una/10Asia] Hong Sang-soo's presence in the film industry has been celebrated since his first appearance -- his directorial debut pic "The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well" was praised by critics and won several international acclaims. Fourteen years later, he has released his tenth production "Ha Ha Ha" where he has upped the cheerful tone to a never-before-seen level. Hong sat down with 10Asia to talk about the movie which has also been picked to present in the non-competitive "Un Certain Regard" category at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Beck Una: The response to your film "Ha Ha Ha" was great after the screening. Just like its title, "Ha Ha Ha" is like a romantic comedy which constantly makes you laugh. I think it's worth looking forward to the film becoming somewhat of a commercial success too. Hong Sang-soo: Yes... I heard that the audience laughs a lot [while watching it]. But such stories...
