"An Affair" stars Lee Mi-Suk and Lee Jung-Jae together with Kim-Min. The Korean movie has a theme on the subject of adultery.
It tells the story of Seo-Hyun,an ordinary housewife,who is seemingly trapped in a sex-less marriage with a successful architect,Seo-Hyun and ordinary routines of the comfortable upper class life.She has a 10-year old son who is the center of attention of her everyday life. Things become interesting with the appearance of Woo-In,a young man who constantly charms her and pursues her love consistently.Will Seo-Hyun stay with her family or will she fall into the hands of the young man?
No question about it.This was an interesting film from beginning to end.We get to see a lot of unpredictability in it. First,we see how Seo-Hyun decides mainly for herself rather than for the good of the family particularly her young son.Added to that, we also see how one can find discomfort despite being in a successful life.It was surprising that money is not an assurance towards happiness.Finally,we also see how people will pursue something more in life rather than being stuck in a routinary events of daily life.
In addition to the themes presented,we also get to see great performances from the lead stars particularly the sexy Lee Min-suk and his young co-star,Lee Jung-Jae.
