Korean title: 외출 (Wi-chool)
A flick with an interesting premise but a little too slow for my taste. There were so many still and quiet moments that I could zip off for a toilet break, cook instant noodles, make a five-minute phone call and not miss a thing.
However, I have to say that the lead Bae Yong-joon (배용준) is pretty impressive here, deftly portraying the varied emotions of a man who is betrayed, and torn between passion and a sense of duty.
A slow burning tearjerker wannabe where a couple unintentionally exposes their clandestine affair after being in a near-fatal car accident. Their respective spouses played by Bae Yong-joon and Son Ye-jin (손예진) find comfort in each other’s arms…and bed.
Sweet revenge? Love on the rebound? Lust or genuine love? The filmmaker leaves it all up to you to decide.
