The English title of this movie is lament and I suspect that's what most of the cast do when this movie is brought up in conversation. The problem lies with the story. Kwang Su (Shin Hyun Jun) has struggled his whole life to shake off the stigma of a shameful family history. He lives in a state of perpetual despair. By contrast, Jong Man (Lee Byung Hun) works as a bartender and spends his days dreaming of becoming an international movie star and his nights filming himself and contacting top Hollywood production companies in the hope that one day he will get his lucky break. Then there is the shy girl Se Hee who works in a music store. When Kwang Su stumbles into the music store, blind drunk, but still able to bash out a tune on a piano, Se Hee falls instantly in love. When Kwang Su stumbles into the bar where Jong Man works, he finds himself arrested for his brother's murder. But fortunately he manages to escape from the police, bumps into Jong Man who instantly lets him stay in his apartment. Shall I go on? The director Kim Hee-Cheol allows the cast to overact to their hearts content and the result is an utter mess. Fans of Lee Byung Hun however will be pleased to learn that there are a couple of steamy love scenes and a moment when he flashes a very smooth bottom.
