He is trusted by the Army Commander who is also his father-in-law and respected by nearly everyone on the military base. Nevertheless, Colonel Jin Pyeong suffers internally from his experiences in the war.
One day, Kyung Woo Jin is transferred to work for Jin Pyeong. Woo Jin is the type that will say read moreor do anything to please his boss. Soon, Colonel Jin Pyeong meets Jong Ga Heun, the wife of his new subordinate. The couple also moved into the house across the street from Colonel Jin Pyeong and his wife.
On a fateful evening, Colonel Jin Pyeong teases a caged bird on the porch of his neighbor's home. A stifling obsession soon begins between Colonel Jin Pyeong and the wife of his subordinate.

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.

    I was disappointed that Song Seung Heon decided to do a movie with full-nude-sex scenes that I barely noticed that there was NO chemistry between the two leads... It was rather boring as SSH seemed embarrassed ... He became my favorite from his dramas that I loved! Seems someone sold him a bill of goods about making more sex-oriented movies that would help his career... Really bad decision! Make clean movies with better story lines and better co-actors!!! Clean up your act!!!!

    No tension or chemistry whatsoever, got bored to the point I had to speed-watch to even finish it (which I normally don't do at all). Some of it made me laugh out loud because of the silliness.

    OMG !!! ... I thought the actress that played his wife looked familiar ! ... I did not recognize her ! ... It's same actress from "Haeundae Lovers" and " The Servant"...
    Well , the sex scenes were better in "The Servant" ....also better in "Frozen Flower" ..... I believe it is the same director for all 3.

      haha tbh I like Jo Yeo Jung much better than the lead actress. Though that's just a personal sentiment ;)
      I didn't know it was the same director, but once you know one does notice certain similarities *coughcough*

      Mind you I still have to watch the whole film (haven't even gotten to the explicit parts). Still waiting for halfway decent subtitles. T_T I refuse to submit myself to the maschine translations. Atm they look like google translate was sick on them... >_>
      I really should brush up on my Korean, it's the same with 'a fatal encounter'... it's always the movies that receive so little subbing attention.

      Yeah...wait...maybe it would help w/ understanding his motivation more... both films came out recently...so we r very lucky even if we see them raw at this point...

    The subtitles were not very clear ... I did not understand everything , but , I understood enough...
    ---- It was interesting to explore these two characters ... and what would drive them to this affair
    ---- but the movie failed to make me believe in their love at first .... It seemed more sexual attraction of two lonely people .... I did not believe it was love , the sex scenes were not affectionate enough , imo ... just sex ! ....
    ---- I can understand 'obsessed' , but the movie failed again to explore and explain his motivation ... He is understandably disturbed .... but what is his psyche that it would drive him into an obsession as solace ? .... and why her ? .....

    This was not bad but I need to watch it again with understandable subtitles as the ones available at the moment did not allow me to understand the plot too well. In any case I was expecting a little more out of this movie besides the very explicit scenes. I had never seen the leading actress before and she is truly beautiful.

    Is this a remake of "From Here to Eternity" w/ Burt Lancaster, Deborah Kerr, Frank Sinatra and Monty Cliff? ..... ...... ..... It sounds very similar, at least the love story part .... I don't know if there is a war in the background and enlisted men trying to survive against the officers....etc...
