Voluntarily participating in an experiment to find a vaccine for the deadly Emmanuel Virus that's devastating Africa, Catholic Priest Sang Hyun manages to become the sole survivor of the experiment due to a contaminated blood transfusion that also infected him with the vampire virus. Back in Korea, the blood cravings begin to manifest, leading Hyun to quench his thirst while volunteering at the hospital. One day, while in the hospital, he meets a childhood friend whose wife, Tae Ju, is living miserably. Feeling sorry, Hyun shows kindness toward her, but their relationship starts to change when he is unable to stop his desire for her. (Source: MyDramaList) Edit Translation

Not Perfect, But Still Good
I came to this film because it's a Park Chan-Wook work and because of Song Kang-Ho. I wasn't disappointed in either. The supporting cast, especially Kim Ok-Bin, did a great job. This was a dark, comic, vampire love story and I enjoyed the many levels of the film. This movie is not for everyone: it's long, it lulls at points, and it's brutal and sexy. THIRST is definitely original and worth watching to the end.

A visually stunning movie whose music and actors swept me away the instant I turned it on. The characters are so well thoughtout, each depicting a side to vampirism. Through their whirlwind love I'm still left rooting for them even in the end. An erotic love story, Thirst, was wonderfully entertaining and well worth the time.
