There are three very thin plot-lines supporting the movie: the love affair between the photographer Min-woo and Jae-hee; flashbacks/visions seen by Min-woo of the previous occupant of his new apartment; and the photographer's surveillance work with his brother, a journalist.
According to the description on IMDB, Jae-hee insists she will have sex with Min-woo only nine times. Unfortunately, while that seems like at least a slightly important plot point, that detail doesn't come through in the subtitles; we have only Min-woo asking "why nine times?" but no indication what the "nine times" refers to.
The Amazon description also makes detailed statements about the movie that, at least for those relying on the subtitles, are not apparent in the movie. Without giving too much away, by the end of the movie we do learn more about Jae-hee's own personal life, but it's never really clear what her relationship to Min-woo was, nor is any of this revealed initially.
In the end, possibly because of the language barrier and poor subtitling, and possibly because the director simply intended it this way, or perhaps a combination of both, the movie has very little forward motion in it. Instead it alternates between sex scenes and moody, ambient moments in the lives of the characters.
If you like a movie without a real story per se, but one that is more of a collage of emotions and situations, this one might be worth a look. If you're looking for plot, suspense, characters, etc. probably better to give it a pass.
The characters appeared cold, and way too predictable.

Plenty of sex, not much in plot development. Work and sex over and over. Frustration with pointless directions in life.Published on August 1, 2014 by Richard
This was a good romantic comedy. The characters are likeable and the story is a sweet love story. I highly recommend this movie.Published on July 14, 2014 by mordy
