When Jung-ha loses her husband in an accident, Naru, her husband's secret lover, approaches Jung-ha and begs her to allow her to stay at her house. Jung-ha denies her at first, but eventually gives in to this strange arrangement, which gets stranger still when it turns into a lesbian relationship.

Even after watching this I am confused at what I saw. This story is started by a man talking to a woman. But is the man really there? Is the woman reading her dead husband's novel and projecting. Is this a supernatural tale full of magic and actual spirits or something else? It is confusing and I am not sure of just what it is. And I am not sure I care as I became engrossed in the film and wanted to find out where it went. My feeling is that this is one of those cultural things where you have to be part of the language and culture to truly understand it.
This was far better than the typical Korean erotic ghost story (if you can call any of them typical). Jane is having a sado-macsocist relationship with his lover, Na-Roo. Na-Roo is his muse and this strange, violent and very disturbing relationship gives him inspiration to write that has eluded him in his stale marriage. He is killed in an automobile accident with his mistress two weeks before he is to leave for Spain with his his wife, Jung-ha.
Na-Roo comes to see Jung-ha and wants to give herself as slave/servant to Jung-ha. Partially to serve penance and partially to be close to the spirit of Jane. Is Na-Roo a magician who does slight of hand tricks or is she an ethereal spirit herself? She appears in Jung-ha's home in a most unusual way.
This is a very sexy film without any nudity. The women really act well and in the less disturbing scenes it is erotic. "In My End is My Beginning" is one of those movies I enjoyed just for the fact that it is well done in story and acting.
One of the worst lesbian dramas around.
Stay away at all costs.
