Jun-young is a man in his early thirties who has seen his friends and younger brother get married but has yet to open himself to a serious relationship. Rather he is happy floating through life with little direction or ambition. Yeon-hee is girl approaching thirty who is desperate to find a suitable husband, but is looking for a match based on social and economic suitability rather than love. They meet on a blind date and quickly find that they are incompatible intellectually, but have an instant physical and emotional connection. Both are extremely practically minded, and as such decide to explore each other by starting a casual physical relationship, while she continues looking for more suitable husband and he avoids commitment.

STORYLINE: 8.5/10
This movie is for the maturely minded due to its explicit sexual scenes. So refreshing to watch how an adult couple would behaviour on a date. But in honesty it was boring and lacked excitement so I questioned the development of their blind date. They date is made that more awkward due to Jun Young’s narration expressing his boredom which I guess was mutual on both parts.

Yeon Hee’s sudden acting like they were official was truly random to myself and Jun Young too, however, this provided the unknown element of how he was going to react; giving life to the casual relationship their had going. As you watch their relationship grow, they is a constant presence of whether they do actually get married due to their views of all marriage being the same old but due to them both having a similar intake of marriage I had hope for them.

They unconventional relationship together continues despite both looking elsewhere however eventually starts causing arguments and misunderstanding which totally made this movie that more entertaining by providing the realism element.

ACTING: 6.5/10 - CHARACTERS: 8.5/10
The natural chemistry between Uhm Jung Hwa (Yeon Hee) and Kam Woo Sung (Jun Young) is well portrayed in a manner that I was able to relate to and in turn provided a paste to the plot especially with the usage of midpoint screen that pre-depicted what to expect form the next scene. What i found weird was the fact that their kissing was cringing to watch like they did not know what they were doing whereas the sex scenes were well performed.


LIKED: His innocent reason for wanting the turtles to die for I guess at this point he knew what he wanted; additional to the usage of bubbles at the wedding
DISLIKED: The unknowingness of the ending scene.
QUESTION OF THOUGHT: Is that how they dress to go to weddings??? Even most of the women looked like they were going to work.

CONCLUSION:
This movie was good for it portrays an alternative concept to marriage for those whom feel it as a society requirement. Alternatively, you should watch this movie if you enjoy genres such as CHESSINESS – LOVE – MARRIAGE – JEALOUSY – INFIDELITY – SEX SCENES – BAD KISSING – NARRATION – MONEY DRIVEN - GOOD STORYLINE.

Another Good Movie from Yoo Ha

This is to me, another great movie from Mr. Yoo Ha (YH). I really liked all his movies with Frozen Flower (Jo In Sung) and Gangnam 1970 (Lee Min Ho). I guess if any actors plan to explore their full potential from drama to a movie role, a Yoo Ha movie cannot go that wrong.

Like all his (YH) other movies, Marriage is a Crazy Thing is another mature, intense and emotionally complicated material. How does one measure real love? Is there a fine line between lust and love? Or do men and women over analyze their emotions to the point of selfishness? Maybe this movie is advising us to keep love really simple. After all, love is just love, and one should not try to over define it too much.

However, in this movie, the couple played by Kam Woo Sung and Uhm Jung Hwa took the complicated, lustful and selfish route, hence everything went south. What a pity, as I found that they do have great chemistry physically, mentally and emotionally.

If only they met each other half way in all that they do and want in their lives, their relationship could have succeeded. Isn't that what Marriage is all about?

The entire movie was entertaining, only for mature audience and for those who enjoy watching the evolvement in relationships. Life is not always a bed of roses.

Cheers!
