[HanCinema's Film Review] "Love Match" 2014/09/26,

'Sex is Zero 2' sticks to toilet and bawdy humor 2007/12/03, Source, Sex comedy is not a familiar genre with Korean audiences, many of whom regard themselves as somewhat conservative, or deadly super-duper conservative. But "Sex is Zero", released in 2002, changed that conventional wisdom.

Martial arts trainers fight comic battle 2007/01/25, Source, When a movie title is too long or unnecessarily repetitive, there are two options.
