London Korean Film Night: My Dear Enemy

Former lovers bump into each other one year down the road. When, at a horseracing stadium, she tracks down her ex-boyfriend Byung-woon, her voice is laced with fury. “I want my money,” she says, skipping even the barest of greetings. Byung-woon, for his part, looks like a man trapped. Despite his nervous smiles and warm assurances (that seem slightly dodgy), you can guess from the outset that he doesn’t have the three and a half million won ($3,000) that he borrowed from her a year earlier. “Don’t worry,” he tells her, “for sure I can get it for you by the end of the day.” Not believing him, but not willing to let him out of her site until she gets paid, she accompanies him for the day as he visits various old friends and acquaintances (all women) and tries to sweet talk his way into a loan.[5] As both day and debt are whittled down, the pair fall back into old patterns, rehash unsettled gripes, and slowly come to see each other in a new light.
