I’m not even sure why I picked this movie to watch in the first place. I’ll blame it on staying up way too late which causes a lack in proper decision making skills. It was convoluted and a little twisted. A man causes chaos within a single family by seducing all the ladies with varied tactics. The reason why he went on his seducing spree? Not a clue. What I got from it was that he believed that a secret could empower a person to become more and have more to live for. So, he felt that by sleeping with them all he gave them a secret that would better their life… then he leaves without a trace and starts the process all over again. My second question that I asked myself, after wondering why I picked it in the first place, was why did I struggle all the way through to the end? That would have to be for Lee Byung Hun. However, when the credits rolled I wasn’t really certain that Lee Byung Hun gazing had been enough to make up for what I’d just sat through. Definitely not a movie that I would recommend.

My reason for watching this movie can be summarized by a name... Lee Byung Hun... and I tell you, I'm not sure if it was worth it.

Believe it or not, the story lacked originality, it wasn't anything I hadn't seen before. To quote 'About Adam', "He came. He saw. He conquered. One sister at a time", it sums up this movie to a T. The player played and he (well, you'll have to watch the movie to know what happens from there).

I must admit, I was fairly set on dropping this movie after the first 40 minutes because of the poor acting. I only held on to see how everything would be resolved. I was unable to connect with any of the leading ladies... I didn't believe their characters nor did I care for them. Lee Byung Hun was convincing in his role, I believed his character and I understood him but this certainly wasn't his best work.

As for the music, the live shows from character Mi Young were respectable, that girl has a nice singing voice.

Honestly, I wouldn't watch this movie again. Naturally, as the title suggests, the movie teaches the audience about what secrets can bring people... I simply don't agree with the stance the movie takes (the lesson is given at the end through a voice over of Lee Byung Hun.

'Everybody Has Secrets' isn't necessarily a bad movie, it's the kind of movie you'd watch if you have nothing else to do... or you just want to see a half-naked Byung Hun but if that's what you're after, go for 'Addicted' or even 'GI Joe: Retaliation', they have better stories.
