time1So. I watched the movie “Time” (시간) and it was a pretty good one. One of the many Korean movies that make you think and then think again what it really important in life, this movie make you question every person in it because nothing is as it seems and no one is who you think they are.

Here is the IMDB description:

Seh-hee and Ji-woo have dated for two years; jealousy consumes her. She worries he will tire of her face. Then, she disappears. Telling no one, she goes to a plastic surgeon for a new face. Ji-woo has no idea where she is, although when he does respond to other women, someone unseen intervenes. Then, he meets See-hee, and although he tells her he misses Seh-hee, this new relationship blossoms into love. They talk at the same coffee house, visit the same sculpture park, and pose for the same photographs he did with Seh-hee. We know they are the same woman. Has this new face and renewed love made her happy? And what will Ji-woo do when he learns the truth? Is losing face losing self?

What is so funny to me, is how the culture of Korean plastic surgery is so prevelent, they are making movies about it! And it’s so natural to them…ah, I wish it weren’t but oh well.

I give “Time” 4 starfruit4-starfruits1for the very confusing ending. I had to ask someone, so if you feel confused, just leave a comment and I’ll explain it to you.

Sorry, I couldn’t find the trailer even when I used Korean, but you can watch “Time” starring Ha Jung Woo and Park Ji Yeon HERE.
