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.
Definitely, it's not an easy watch for everyone but still i loved the movie (it made me cry TT). These kind of movies are very rare to find........
I want to put my opinion that i think the movie does not completely intend to educate us about HIV as we can see from some instances that even the doctors themselves were not completely educated about the HIV (don't worry not a spoiler) and i think that's because the context of the movie was based on the late 20th century when the research was still going on and was considered taboo. (Sorry!! these facts hold no credibility, i randomly made them up just to explain what i mean to say).
Instead, i would say it mostly focused on miserable life of prostitutes and AIDS was obviously a most probable consequence of prostitution.
Cinematography, Pace, Acting were nice.
IMO it was a really good movie which shed light on some serious issues while at the same time delivering us some serious romance plot. (maybe sick love for others, but not for me TT)
