페어 러브 (Pe-eo Leo-beu)

Directed by Shin Yeon-shick (신연식)

Screenplay by


117min | Release date in South Korea :

Hyung-man is in his fifties and has regrettably never dated. After having lost all his money to a close friend, Hyung-man spends his monotonous and frustrating life in his photo studio. One day, Hyung-man decides to pay his fraudulent friend, Ki-hyuk, a visit, after having heard that he is dying of cancer. Ki-hyuk requests that Hyung-man look after his daughter, Nam-eun, once in a while after he dies. After Ki-yuk passes away, Hyung-man decides to visit his friend's daughter, who is surprisingly a full-grown lady. Noticing that Nam-eun is more distressed over the death of her pet cat than her father's, Hyung-man decides to look after her once in a while. Nam-eun too finds her father's silly and unmarried friend quite interesting. Using Hyung-man's dirty laundry as an excuse, Nam-eun frequently visits Hyung-man, gradually expressing her feelings for him. Although awkward and surprised at first, Hyung-man too is curious about his feelings for his friend's daughter. Soon, Hyung-man who was once simply Nam-eun's father's friend becomes her man and they begin a series of unusual dates.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "R2B: Return to Base": Come Rain, Come Shine?

    Film: "R2B: Return to Base" (R2B: 리턴투베이스)   Director: Kim Dong-weon Stars: Rain, Sin Se-kyeong, Yoo Joon-sang, Kim Sung-soo, Lee Ha-na & Lee Jong-suk Review Score: 3 / 5 Also Try: "The Red Scarf", "71-Into the Fire" or "Taegukgi" Shin Sang-ok's 1964 film "The Red Muffler" was the first film to be released nationally in Japan and, prior to its release there, it was also shown at the Asia-Pacific Film Festival in Taipei. It was this acclaimed classic, this "expertly-filmed motion picture", that inspired Kim Dong-weon's 2012 action drama "R2B: Return to Base". The film was made with $10,000,000 and Time magazine's 2011 'most influential person' and Korean superstar Rain. However, it also had the unfortunate luck of being released alongside Choi Dong-hoon's record breaking "The Thieves", as well as the historical comedy "The Grand Heist" (which itself brought in close to 5 million admissions)-it lasted three weeks before it fell off the radar. "R2B: Return to Base" is, if anything, a great spectacle. There are incredibly gorgeous jet fighter scenes that seem to mirror the complexity and intensity of the stories told by some of the WWII veterans on the History channel; its star, Rain, is involved in a number of retro-style music montages as well as an angry/passionate topless locker-room brawl; and there is a love story in there somewhere that keeps you from feeling cheated. It's high-speed entertainment that catches the eye and quickens the pulse, but does little for the genre in Korea and even less for Rain's filmography,...More
  • [20 Korean Films to Look Out for Second Half of 2011] "Soar into the Sun"

    2011/07/16, Source,
    Flying the Sky with Rain "Soar into the Sun" Directed by Kim Dong-weon By NA Won-jung The film's story is related to the original "Red Muffler", directed by the legendary Korean director SHIN Sang-ok in 1964. The original film used the Korean War as its background, dealing with the passion and the love of F-86 Saver jet fighter pilots, and bringing in the most audiences in Seoul at the time and won countless domestic film awards in the process. The new version of Red Muffler reflects the changes in time and deals with the pilots of the new F-15K fighters, yet it still brings the nostalgia from 47 years ago,...More
