Secret Love is a South Korean film that is written and directed by Ryu Hoon-i.The story was about a woman who was caught love triangle with her husband and his twin brother while he was in coma.It stars Yoo Ji-tae and Yoon Jin-seo together with Oh Woo-Jung, Ko Yu-Seon,Lee A-Rin,Seo Jin,Lim Hyung-Guk and Yang Eun-Yong.
The film starts when Yeon-Yi's husband Jin-woo gets into an accident and falls into a coma two months after their wedding. During this time, Yeon-Yi's life shatters from the seams. She misses her deadlines for work, while she has only videos of her wedding to comfort her. Then Yeon-Yi waits at the airport for Jin-Woo's brother Jin-Ho, whom she has never met before. She is stunned when she meets him, because Yeon-Yi never knew Jin-Woo and Jin-Ho are identical twin brothers. Although Jin- Ho and Yeon-Yi's relationship is cold at first. they soon become attracted to each other. Their relationship becomes even more volatile, when Jin-woo suddenly awakes from his coma.
Secret Love is one reason why Koreans are considered one of the most creative in world cinema.The story that involves twins and a volatile one at that provides great interest to the viewer considering its interesting premise which is definitely original and refreshing.The pacing of the film is great considering that most Asian films are somewhat slow and tedious for there is no wasted scene.The acting is also brilliant especially from the leads namely:Yoo Ji-tae and Yoon Jin-seo,who already have worked together from the Asian masterpiece,Oldboy.Attention to detail is definitely necessary in this picture as it can provide confusion to many especially on how the movie ends especially at the conclusion when one wants to answer the question on who among the twins,Jin-Woo and Jin-Ho,does Yeon-Yi end up with.Although this is far from a masterpiece,I do believe that it could be elevated in the "borderline" great Korean love stories ever made.Finally,it also does not fall short in entertainment as it provides romance,drama,mystery and passionate love scenes.
I give this film a two thumbs up!!!
