Storyline

Seung-woo through his friend Jae-hyun becomes a "host," or a male gigolo who serves women customers, to make ends meet. Seung-woo's family had been financially successful but suffered bankruptcy and plunged into poverty. Most of his clients are themselves workers in the hostess or prostitution trade. Jae-hyun is a manager at the host bar Seung-woo works at. Jae-hyun is a chronic con artist who lies and cheats women, including his live-in girlfriend who is Seung-woo's sister, to get money. Trouble brews when Seung-woo starts dating one of his customers, a massage parlor girl named Ji-won, and Jae-hyun's scams finally start to catch up with him. Written by Anonymous

Disappointing movie on interesting field
18 October 2008 | by (Seoul, Korea) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on DVD, and I have to say it took an interesting topic like the world of male hosts who entertain women clients, usually workers in the sex trade.

Jae-hyun is too predictable and too black-and-white as the chronic shyster, while Seung-woo starts to take a rather unrealistic turn toward the end of the movie. I think the director sped up the action too fast (surprising since the movie is more than two hours long) and the plot simply moved in all the wrong directions.

I also think the role of dissatisfied rich women was underplayed in the movie, since they can be major customers of hosts.
