Product Details

Bad Guy:
Korean director Kim Ki-duk's film begins with Han-ki (Jo Jae-hyeon), the leader of a gang of street thugs who patrol a Seoul red light district, becoming infatuated with Sun-hwa (Seo Weon), a college girl he glimpses in another part of the city. When he tries to force a kiss on her he is beaten up by her boyfriend, and his obsession takes an ugly turn. After discovering that she isn't as innocent as he originally thought, he finds a way to force her into prostitution on the street where he works. Her painful initiation becomes fodder for his voyeuristic impulses, and an uneasy, wholly unconventional relationship develops between them.

Time:
A woman obsessed with her appearance takes drastic measures to hold onto the man she loves, with startling results in this offbeat drama from South Korean filmmaker Kim Ki-duk. Se-heui (Park Ji-yeon) is a beautiful woman who has become convinced she isn't beautiful enough. Se-heui is certain her boyfriend Ji-woo (Ha Jeong-woo) is attracted to other women, and has so resigned herself to second-class status with him that she urges him to imagine other women when they make love. Se-heui decides that plastic surgery is the only solution for her problems, and without telling Ji-woo she checks herself into a clinic, where a doctor promises her a new and different face in six months. Ji-woo is crestfallen by Se-heui's disappearance, and while he begins dating again, he can't get her out of his mind. A few months later, a new waitress named Sae-heui (Seong Hyeon-aah) begins working at a diner Ji-woo frequents, and he becomes deeply infatuated with her. When she drops him a note, Ji-woo realizes Sae-heui is actually Se-heui with a new face, but with her new appearance their relationship takes on a troubling new dynamic.
