A 32-year woman has just been released from jail on charges of sex with a minor, who is one month away from being legal. She’s eager to write off his love as a youthful mistake. He’s eager to protect his newly-freed girlfriend from a world that doesn’t want to accept them. But does either one of them really know what they want? And more importantly, do they have anything in common besides sex?

Format:DVD
Green Chair is a tale of forbidden love between a 32 year old divorcee and a 19 year old college student. Based on a true story, GREEN CHAIR is the first film in four years from controversial director Park Chul-Soo, best known for "301,302". Seo Jeong (THE ISLE, Spider Forest) plays Kim Mun-hee, a nice 32-year-old woman who's making whoopee with a 19 year old boy, Hyeon ( Shim Ji-ho). Unfortunately for them, 20 is the age of consent in Korea, and she's arrested, locked up and sentenced to community service.

Upon her release, Mun-hee tries to ditch the handsome young 19 year old, but he just won't go away(looking at Korean bombshell Seo Jeong, I wouldn't want to leave either). Instead they shack up in a motel and have a few more days of exhausting sex(who wouldn't). Eventually, doubts start to creep into Mun-hee's mind, and even though she is in love with him, she decides to end the affair. However, Mun-hee couldn't resist Hyun's persistence and their relationship enters a new phase.

At first impression, Park Chul-Soo's Green Chair may seem like a straightforward tale of erotic sex and the occasional sense of guilt, but it ends up being a lot more than that. The First act of the film is highly explicit (quite tame when compared to the Korean erotica Summertime), there is quite a bit of nudity, Seo Jeong is in her birthday suit in the first few minutes. The film doesn't merely focus on eroticism, so I don't think it will turn off a lot of viewers. When things start to settle down and we get to observe all the details of Hyun and Mun-hee's unusual relationship, from Hyun's fondness for cooking to Mun-hee's preferences when it comes to mattreses and other stuff, the film presents such dimensions with warmth and humor, that results in a nuanced, touching and subversive love story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Age of consent July 28, 2008
Format:DVD
An affair between a 19 year old man and a 32 year old divorced woman doesn't seem so shocking to most Americans. It is even the kind of thing that would be applauded on a show like Sex and the City, and the woman would probably get little more than a few snide looks and maybe pats on the back. But apparently it is a jailing offense in Korea, where stricter laws bind the morality of a country.

This is where "Green Chair" ("Noksaek uija") begins. A passionate encounter is consumated and ends abruptly, with the older woman, Mun-hee, jailed and the young man, Hyun, confused and longing for his lover. Soon released, what Mun-hee thought was just sex and youthful desire becomes more as Hyun refuses to let her go, and pursues her with a passion she thought long lost in her jaded world view.

Even though it is based on a true story, "Green Chair" is not the most original of films. This kind of love story has been played out time and again on screen and in newspapers, with much more shocking variances in ages. However, when dealing with an unoriginal story, what matters most are the director's style and the actor's ability, and how they make the most of the material to present the tale.

Director Cheol-su Park has plenty of style, and knows how to position his actors for maximum effect. The first part of the film, detailing the lovers stay at a hotel where Mun-hee teaches Hyun about the more intimate relations between a man and a woman, is incredibly sexy. The realism with which the scenes are handled makes it much more intimate and enticing, without cheesy music or artistic framing and heaving breasts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting April 22, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Warning, many sexual scenes,. But the movie touches upon double standards and what used to be considered when a person is of legal age and punishments for sexual crimes, The two main leads are a divorced housewife of 30 and the young man who falls in love with her at 19. After she does prison time for being with him, It follows them over a weeks or so time as he hits the magic number of 20 and is no longer "underage". Wonderful movie.
