This movie is about love triangle, friendship put to the test and fulling hidden dreams.

Story is about choices we need to made in our life to be truly to ourselves. Just like Sang-ina decides to become chef and leaves corporation office to start everything anew. Like Mo-rae needs to decide is she ready to leave her safe place and stop being little girl all the time. She meets Him and every read more touch is natural and passionate. Young stranger brigs with him salvation and degradation to both Sang-ina and Mo-rae.

Joo Ji Hoon acting is adorable, he seduces Mo-rae in most delicate way. But in every step his closer to Mo-rae and further form Sang-ina. I enjoyed Shin Min Ah acting, maybe she was a little to greedy and that made both men miserable but in the end she was fair.

Sometimes movie was a little unclear, ending was good I like unsaid and open endings. Music just great, all instrumental parts of the Ost were so warm and calm. Joo Ji Hoon even sings in french ^^

Um.. Well I can tell you one thing, I did not like this film. I think this film could have turned out a lot better had I known what was even going on half the time. The plot as this film progressed got really messy and was hard to keep up with, and I didn't really see a change in any of the characters. Only added tension between them as secrets surfaced. read more And also something I'd like to point out plot-wise, the ending was very vague. I was hoping that if she made a decision, she would've made it more clear then what it turned out to be. I don't really understand how the writers thought going this route was a good idea, because if you ask me the whole thing needed to be rewritten. I think the idea of her falling in love with another man while married was something that could have been built up to something great, but the decisions made didn't add up to me and I ultimately feel bad that the actors had to take part in something so poorly written.

Thankfully, the cast chosen was well enough to get by on. Shin Min Ah is actually a great actress, so she can at least deliver. Joo Ji Hoon.. I mean I can't really give my honest opinion of his performance since I've seen him in very little (just Goong), but from what I saw in this film he performed well, and was very good looking while doing so. Kim Tae Woo didn't really stick out to me, so I didn't form much of an opinion of him.

As for the music... Didn't form much of an opinion on that either considering I didn't hear much music. Overall.. I'm very disappointed with this film. And I hate that I only stuck around for the romance scenes, they were probably the most intriguing part of the entire film.. Which is pathetic if you think about it. I'd only rewatch the romance parts, other than that, this is just another film added to the list. I won't waste my time watching anything like this again. I guess you can watch it if you're bored like I did, but don't expect anything great.

Make a Recommendation More recs (1)Recommendations

in both films there is a married woman who loves two men in the same time and wants to posess both of them. and beacuse they are both crazy about her, the triangle relationship begins....:X:X:X

in naked kitchen she doesn't get married to the second guy, but all three remain together as a family. also, in both films the woman gets pregnant. in naked kitchen the second guy is younger and resembles the second guy from my wife got married, the free spirit one who understands the concept of loving more than one person. the first guy is her childhood friend and her first all, as she is his first all. also, they all live together, the guys are friends and new partners in cooking.

this movie is about love and friendship, while in my wife got married the friendship between the two men develops later and the love lives of both men are separated, the woman coming and going from her two homes.

    I give this movie 10/10 for the idea of 3 people living together and making family, and for that instant passion in the begining of the movie. The is so fresh and forbidden topic for Korea and most of other countries, as in Korea "cheating" is even rulled as kinda crime in the law. This kind of movie shows how this law and the family ethic as well is ridiculous. <3

      Thank you! .... It makes sense now.
      I appreciate the artistic value of the film, but I still believe the execution was lacking, since it left me w/ a shallow impression .... Your explanation had more depth and more feeling than the actual film!

      I agree that the execution was lacking, which is probably why it turned into a personal mission to figure the end out. Usually I'm okay with open endings, but this one just left me staring at the screen in irritation.

    I don't think it was boring just lacked depth !!
    ---- the entire thing was so Laid-Back & Easy-Going .... even the characters ..... which was a Refreshing Take !!!
    ......BUT...... easy-going does not mean Lacking Purpose nor does it mean incapable of Deep Thought or Feeling !! --->>> ... which is exactly what the characters and the movie needed !!!

    ---- It would have been a lot better if the characters were better developed that we can understand their motivation.

      I agree 100%. The movie has a really interesting premise, but it was poorly executed, which is very unfortunate...

    This is one of the worst movies I watched. I mean it was sooo boring and honestly i have no idea what it was about. I got really confused in the middle of it and ending was just one, big WHAT THE HECK?
    Even Ji Hoon didn't save it.
    Plus I find Mo Rae and her husband just soo annoying...
    I watched it till end cos I was curious what was going to happen, but really one big disappointment.

    Unlike everyone else, I actually enjoyed this movie. The plots might've been idiotic, but I loved the chemistry between Sin Min A and Ji Hoon. That pottery store scene was to die for!
