Melodrama Romance

Synopsis
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.

    2012/10/13
    Film: "Love Fiction" Director/Writer: Jeon Gye-soo Stars: Ha Jung-woo & Gong Hyo-jin Review Score: 3.5 / 5 Also Try: "Characters" and "Shotgun Love" Admittedly I find myself drawn to dramas and romantic comedies that dabble in the self-reflexivity of characters and their fates. What's the conflict? Where is the drama? What would these characters do in a particular situation? And "Love Fiction" just happens to be one of those films as director Jeon Gye-soo gives us a front row seat into a struggling novelists personal journey into life, love, and story's that run crooked between them. Let me just say that I am writing this review with fat and slow fingers. I found the film to be rather a mixed bag of well-polished moments and scenes, but was also reeked of clichés and, ironically, rather poor character development. I caught myself taking a deep breath before I pressed start on this one, dreading another plain, yet palatable, Korean romantic comedy. I was surprised, at intially, to find the humour sharp, original, and very well captured on screen. That said, much of laughs I enjoy while watching the film weren't, perhaps, the regular Korean slapstick and screwball affairs. Which I honestly don't mind as much as it might sound, but still the prospect of 'more of the same' warranted some more oxygen,...More
