This is a very lighthearted quick watch of my favorite genre of Korean movies: erotic saeguk. There is a numerous amount of explicit scenes, but they're are pretty well done themselves in terms of the chemistry between the two main characters. But let me get on with the review.

The story is as the blurb above says, and it isn't anything groundbreaking or particularly interesting. I wasn't expecting there to be a comedic tone, so that threw me off a bit (especially since I just watched The Concubine right before so I was hoping for something with a similar tone), but nonetheless this wasn't a complete waste of time. While parts of the storyline was predictable, the ending wasn't what I forsaw and the foreshadowing was definitely misleading (purposefully probably). The somewhat plot twist ending is why I bumped the score from a 4.5 to a 5 for the overall rating.

To wrap this up, if you're looking for a lighthearted erotic saeguk, this is definitely for you. If you're looking for a movie with a strong storyline, I wouldn't choose this one today.
