Product Description

Follow the trials, trysts, and tribulations of four beautiful singles feeling the pinch of growing up, in smash hit Korean comedy Singles. After Na Nan (Chang Jin Young) loses her job and her boyfriend in the same day, she has only one place to turn to, her best friends Dong Mi (the gorgeous Um Jung Hwa) and Jung Joon (Lee Bum Soo). These three friends have supported each other since childhood and must now face the daunting World of single life, and the anxieties surrounding it, as they fast approach 30.

Dong Mi is the antithesis of the shy and vulnerable Na Nan. She knows what she wants and she knows how to get it. A serial man-eater, she's had 46 lovers and counting - and she couldn't care less who knows about it. Jung Joon, on the other hand, is anything but a player. He spends his days doting on his younger girlfriend, much to his friends' dismay, until she unceremoniously dumps him for another man anyway. However, his refreshingly kind-hearted nature is not lost on Dong Mi - until one night of reckless passion forces them to re-evaluate their relationship.

Meanwhile, Na Nan is experiencing problems of her own. Forced to take a restaurant manager's job that she hates, she must then contend with "Mr. Charm" Soo Heon (Kim Ju Hyuk), who appears on the scene and sets his sights squarely on her. Who ever said single life was easy?

Tapping into the psyche of Korea's young adults, this sharp, intelligent and sexy comedy confronts the issues of growing up and taking responsibility with wit and style. Featuring a beautiful, talented cast and shot through with a knowing and hip sense of humor, it is no surprise that Singles was one of Korea's biggest hits of 2003.

The box copy labelling this a Korean version of Sex In The City couldn't be more misleading!

This is a sparkling, incisive, progressive-minded comedy-drama that leaves much of this genre looking exactly like the disguised condoning of tradition it really is, but it's ANYTHING BUT like Sex In The City, despite progressive, healthy attitudes displayed by the filmmakers towards the sex lives of single people in a culture that pushes way too hard for traditional, culturally-protective dating and marriage.

One can only begin to imagine how entrenched thinkers in Korean society would react to this honest, observant, level-headed look at four late-twenty-somethings for whom life provides obstacles in both career and love that neither regressive-collective cultural thinking nor parents - who barely figure into the plot - can solve. Nan (Chang Jin-young), is a wide-eyed fashion industry drone busted down to Chilli's manager by her sexist middle manager. The shift stings, but also points out realities she's not entirely uncomfortable with. Into her world comes Seo- hoon (Kim Ju-hyeok) a decent-fella securities trader who clearly wants to pursue a relationship despite her reservations.

Meanwhile, her best friend Dong Mi (Uhm Jeong-hwa), a web company employee out of work thanks to her own sexist superior, shares a flat with old pal Joon (Lee Beom-soo, in a 180 degree turn from his creepy role in OH! Brothers), who's as unsuccessful at removing himself from bad relationships as she is successful at bringing home a long string of bad boyfriends.

That both of these couples should end up together is a given.

I really couldn't get into this one. The DVD cover art and even the product description make this film seem so upbeat and trendy and I just didn't get that feeling when I watched it.

The characters are somewhat forgetable and I found myself checking the time a lot--didn't want to waste my ENTIRE day on something that hadn't gotten good yet and didn't seem like it ever would.

If you really want to see it, I'd say find it someplace for really cheap so you aren't so pissed afterward.
