Love and Loneliness
24 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

"Holiday in Seoul" is made up of 2 stories, loosely related to each other. In the first story, a bellboy falls in love with a leg model who stays at the hotel with her boyfriend, then her boyfriend dies in an accident... The second tale is about an insomanic taxi driver who finds love with a phone operator who loves a married man....

The movie is about the emptiness and loneliness that modern citizens experience, despite being in the company of people. Love is fleeting, capture every opportunity because it won't be there forever. Our heros are unable to speak from the hearts and therefore see the chances disappearing...

There is not much going on plot-wise. If you can relate to the experience of taxi driver and the bellboy, then you will enjoy this movie. If not, you may think it is stupid that why they didn't do something...
