In need of money to redeem a treasured family portrait, struggling manhwa artist Jeong Bae takes part in a publishing company's competition for an adult manga with a prize ₩130 million. Advised that his big weakness is his story-writing, Jeong Bae advertises for a professional writer and ends up hiring the self-important Han Da Rim, with whom he agrees to split the prize money 50-50 if they win. Unknown to Jeong Bae, Da Rim recently lost her job as a sex columnist, where she compensated for her lack of experience with men by copying material.

This movie is so fun! Another thing that solidifies my love for Lee Sun Gyun. It is about an adult comic book artist looking for a writer. He needs to win a contest for the prize money. When they meet their relationship is antagonistic at best. But those sparks turn into something more.

As typical as this set up may sound, it's so well done and enjoyable to watch it doesn't matter. I've actually never seen a movie premise like this. Well that's not true. A few years back there was an American movie about a ghost writer helping an author to pen a book but it was done poorly and there is no comparison.

Remember that they are writing an adult comic. There are a lot of sexual references but it's done very tongue in cheek as the female writer is faking 99% of her sexual experience. Most of the graphic sexual images are in fact, in graphic (comic book) form.

Watching Jung Bae get wise to her act...I loved it! Dae Rim is such a character and Jung Bae finds her tough to take at first. But when he begins to draw...it's her face that appears on paper. As the two leads gravitate toward each other and their feelings grow...it's so cute!

Lee Sun Gyun and Choi Gang Hee make a great pair. Able to be comedic and have you believe when they are sincere.
I recommend this movie highly.

WARNING: this movie is for mature audiences only!! First off , this movie was hilarious! It is pretty graphic though and it sneaks up on you when your not expecting. The cast was really spectacular. Lee Sun Gyun from Pasta is charming & just charismatic as always. Love him! I have never seen anything with the female lead before this. Her character was naive but funny. The leads had a really great chemistry. If you can get passed the sex theme and see it for a really great comedy romance, then you\''\''ll really enjoy this movie!
