I just finished this movie, and thought I need to write a review, as I feel the reviews here don't make this movie justice. This is not a bad movie. The title obsessed, illustrate well the main theme. It is about a forbidden love between two married people, a desire and obsession that consumes everything. It was sad and melancholic - the choice of classical music also enhanced this feeling. It is read more definitely a movie for mature audience, as it has very graphic sexual content, shows adultery, and touches upon complicated subjects like post conflict trauma. I also really liked the images of the movie, as they were very beautifully filmed.
It is true that the two main leads had their flaws - the commander had lost his purpose in life after traumatic experiences in Vietnam, and the main girl did a marriage of reason also after traumatic experiences from her past. Both are adults who didn't experience true love, and they are overwhelmed by their own feelings.
Overall I liked this movie, and I found that the actors played well.

This is only my point of view but I have to say that it's the baddest film I've ever seen so far.

First, I want to say that the script has to be reviewed since:
- I personally didn't felt the love between the 2 main characters, instead it felt like 2 people feeling attracted between one another
- And the main title which Obsessed doesn't reflect in the movie, the obsession read more between the leads characters should have been more expressed in more complex scenes instead of sex scenes, if they wanted to only expressed it through sex scenes it should have been more intense with really strong emotions
- Plus, I didn't like the character's personalities; the man seems too weak behind his colonel costume and the women too innocent, but they're not child anymore, it's not about a pure love story in high school like we are used to see, these characters are married and are committing adultery so I would I've like them to be responsible and to assume their relationship.

In conclusion, I feel betrayed because the screenwriter wanted to tell the story of married people falling in love like 2 childs falling for the first time but it doesn't work together and their love story has been built too quick. So the movie is a mess and the mixing of all those defects makes it a clumsy movie.
Maybe the chemistry between the 2 characters was bad as well but I have to say that the directing was really good.

    Makes me laugh how people whine about sex mature nude scenes. You don't like them skip them or don't watch the movie. I don't feel nothing as i watch them or If i start to feel uncomfortable I just skip them.
    Is like when people go to a nudist beach, people who are judgmental or dirty minded or just dirty can't go to this places.
    If you are judgmental dirty minded or just simply dirty that you can't watch nudity or sex scenes you have no business watching anything that is for adults (even if you are one).
    Also what kind of fan are you that you judge if your OPPA does sex scenes or nudity. Is a job! only because you want to see them as wussies that don't even kiss on normal cable dramas.
    I did see it as wrong the cheating part. They should of broken it off with their couples.

    The sex scenes are awkward lol They should have given the lead character to Jo Yeo Jung she's such a great actress and plus she knows how to do "hot scenes". These two as a couple was just annoying hehe

    So what about Obsessed? I honestly do not know, do not get excited, the film has no blemishes, a script well written and well directed just what I have to talk.

    I think the comment section here is proof that children should not watch this movie. So, please only watch if you don't feel uncomfortable with mature scenes, and if you're a fan of either actor, can behave like an adult when your idol has sex scenes. (For me, this movie was 8/10, great acting.)

    Absolutely this kind of movie for mature audience. So please, if you below 21 i suggest you dont ever try to watch it or ypu will dissapointed hehehe. Of course SSH no longer boys anymore, he got role suitable for his age and of course conflict from the story. Me actually love him and his sexy body as married woman, i dont mind with those sex scene, and the story got my taste.

    I really wanted to watch this movie as I am very much SSH fan but couldn't find a site to watch it on. But, my daughter was able to and according to her, the movie was great. She did have some negative feedbacks on some parts of the movie but overall she said the acting and storyline was good. However, after all the comments I've read I don't know if I should even try to watch it.
