Simple, sweet-natured farmhand Seok-Jung (Hwang Jung-Min) longs for a wife. He is certain that he has found her the instant he catches sight of lovely Eun-Ha (Jeon Do-Youn). She is far more experienced and sophisticated than he is, a difference made starkly clear by her job at a sleazy cafÃ© where she delivers intimacy and coffee to the guests at the aptly named Beast Motel. No one is more surprised than she is when his unquestioning devotion wins her over, and she falls for her impassioned suitor. Seok-Jung thinks he has found the perfect love, but Eun-Ha is a woman with a past that has resulted in an HIV infection, and her former life casts a shadow that threatens not just their marriage but also his place within his family and community.

Cast & Credits
Even though the music wasn't outstanding I didn't mind at all. Because the plot got me entirely. At first you may think it's boring, but as time goes by, the development of the movie will catch you.
This movie, with this surprising development reminds of "3-iron" another Korean movie. It also got no outstanding music, but THAT'S the charm of this movie, it doesn't got too much dialogues between the lead actors but THAT got its reason, and that will be revealed at the end.
The excellent story, direction, acting and cinematography have taken this film to all the linguistic obstacles, yet it has shortcomings, small but responsible for an emotional emptiness for those who watch it. The story covers the issue of AIDS and prostitution, two topics that are still somewhat taboo in Korea as well as in much of Asia. It's worth watching!
