Indeed a bizarre love triangle...
29 August 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"A Bizarre Love Triangle" is somewhat of an acquired taste. It is not the movie that will appeal to just anyone. Why? Well because of the odd approach to the comedy genre that it is, I will say it borders more on actually being a drama, but with a slightly surreal and sarcastic approach to life and relationships.

The story is about Keum-Sook (played by Hyo-jin Kong) and Eun-Hee (played by Eun-ji Jo) who has been together since they were school girls, going through thick and thin together. They end up in love with one another, but their relationship is cut short as Keum-Sook ends up having to go to jail. In her loneliness, Eun-Hee marry comedian and TV star Doo-Chan (played by Kwang-il Choi). Once freed from jail, Keum-Sook seeks out her love, but things have changed.

"A Bizarre Love Triangle" is really unique in its own way, and I think you must really love Korean cinema to find this movie entertaining. I do like Korean (and Asian) cinema a lot, and I did enjoy "A Bizarre Love Triangle". It approaches life and relationships in a great way.

The movie was nicely acted, and the people cast for the roles really did a good job to carry the movie. This was important, as the movie had a tendency to take a rather long time with most scenes.

If you sit down to watch "A Bizarre Love Triangle", then be prepared to watch something that is not your average mainstream Korean cinema.
