The title of the movie perfectly the message of the movie: Perfect strangers. They are the people you think you know, people who are so close to you yet there are so many things they keep for themselves, secrets, lies and affairs.

Its storyline is easy to understand yet very well-developed. Different issues are touched in order to show the extent of how hypocritical, deceptive our lives can be. Everyone all have our secrets. Things we don't ever dare to confront or admit. Lives we have no courage to expose.

The ending is surprising and real at the same time, which makes the movie even better and more profound.

That's the thing I love so much about Korean/ Asian movies. Under the surface of an entertaining movie, they always manage to deliver a very humane message.
