As the description says, a woman's husband (Jin-woo) is in a coma, when his twin brother (Jin-ho) shows up, and she (Yeon-yi) eventually falls in love with him. Trouble ensues (well, more trouble) when her husband comes out of the coma and gradually comes to realize what has happened.

There are many wrinkles to the basic plot, however, and the movie takes its sweet time to explore them. It is not until near the very end of the movie that one has enough information to see how everything fits together. In the meantime, expect to feel disoriented at times. A feeling that is likely intended, and in any case is used to good effect to induce in the viewer a mental state vaguely similar to what the character of Yeon-yi is feeling throughout.

Sprinkle in just a hint of the supernatural, mix with some decent acting, keep the suspense up throughout, and you've got a movie worth the nearly two hours it will take to watch. It's not all perfect. There's a sub-plot involving Yeon-yi's mother and her own love interest that goes nowhere and seems only marginally related to the main storyline, and the occasional apparently irrelevant moments. But none of this ruins what is otherwise a fine movie.

Secret Love is a South Korean film that tells the story about a woman who was caught love triangle with her husband and his twin brother while he was in coma.

This film shows viewers why Koreans are considered one of the most creative in world cinema.The story that involves twins and a volatile one at that provides great interest to the viewer considering its interesting premise which is definitely original and refreshing.The pacing of the film is great considering that most Asian films are somewhat slow and tedious for there is no wasted scene.The acting is also brilliant especially from the leads namely:Yoo Ji-tae and Yoon Jin-seo,who already have worked together from the Asian masterpiece,Oldboy.Attention to detail is definitely necessary in this picture as it can provide confusion to many especially on how the movie ends especially at the conclusion when one wants to answer the question on who among the twins,Jin-Woo and Jin-Ho,does Yeon-Yi end up with.Although this is far from a masterpiece,I do believe that it could be elevated in the "borderline" great Korean love stories ever made.Finally,it also does not fall short in entertainment as it provides romance,drama,mystery and passionate love scenes.

Wow - this is certainly not your normal tragic drama! Invest 2 hours of time you will never get back in an okay film that is like the epic line in the original Judge Dredd (1985): "Eat recycled food: it's GREAT for the environment and OKAY for you!"

The vow, "in sickness and in health" gets sorely tested when the husband, (Jin-woo), is in a coma from an accident. His young aesthetically-strong wife, (Yeon-yi) probably suffers from PTSD but is more likely horny as hell. Jin-woo's brother, (Jin-ho), arrives to visit his brother and it's only a matter of time when things go sideways and the pretty young wife starts doing the THE NASTY with the brother!

You just want to cringe when the husband figures out that the fox is in the hen house!

This film has sparked much passionate debate among my friends: some say you cannot blame the wife as what happened was totally natural and can be expected. Others wanted the husband to mete out a Singaporean-style epic beat-down to the brother for porking his wife while he was in a coma in the hospital. They were royally pissed!

While it's great that the husband recovered and could walk again, it seemed that all three lost in the end...

Good to watch and discuss the strength of your relationship.

Enjoy!

Husband in coma. Twin shows up and the wife falls in love but the husband wakes up and all hell breaks loose. Well, the movie has many wrinkles but I just moved along. It is good if you are patient and like to figure things out. For me, I was like hmmm...watch out for lust. And make sure that you don't stick too close to other gender when you are uber vulnerable?

The acting is good but the progress is like glacial speed. Also, again, I moved many parts quickly but watching slowly may give you more flavor.

SECRET LOVE is a Korean mystery-romance that requires a great deal of audience attention. Director Hoon-i Ryu has crafted a film that is deliberately multi-layered, a fancy term that suggests that there is no straight line plot that follows the traditional dramatic arc of plot complication to plot resolution. In films like this a number of scenes on the surface seem to be at odds with one another and the ending also only seems to reach logical finality. Here is the basic plot:

Yeon-Yi (Jin-seo Yoon) marries Jin-Woo (Ji Tae Yu) and is happy with him. Shortly after their marriage Jin-Woo suffers a tragic accident that leaves him in a coma. Enter Jin-Woo's identical brother Jin Ho (played by Ji-Tae Yu in a double role). Yeon-Yi did not know that her husband had a brother. They meet, they argue, and predictably fall in love and have an affair. Also predictably her husband emerges from his coma to reclaim his position as husband. It does not take long for the husband to suspect his wife and brother. Without giving too much away, the film ends in tragedy with the audience having to guess which brother she truly loves. Some viewers may object to having to guess anything or even to re-think previously held assumptions. The extent that one may feel required to do just this is a function of one's enjoyment of the film. In my case, I did the required re-examination and judged it to be an exceptional foray into the often murky waters of emotions that conflict and agonize the leads. In a few key scenes I did not know which brother was making love with Yeon-Yi. Such scenes by the way were sexually explicit. For the film to make sense I had to re-assign which brother was which. The tragic ending was similarly ambiguous.
