Killing Romance

Killing Romance | Won-suk Lee | KR 2023 | 106 Min | DCP

Self-empowerment, torque edition! Yeo-rae was a megastar until she met real estate developer and egomaniac Jonathan, who entranced her with his charm, married her, and now keeps her as his trophy wife who is not allowed to do anything but smile. No set of ostrich leather handbags could ever help her get over that fact. So, she comes to the difficult conclusion that . . . well, her hubby must die. Even though—or perhaps because—she’s found a willing minion in her superfan Beom-woo, the execution of her plan is off to a bumpy start. A wild, beautifully artificial modern fairy tale that lacks neither villain tropes nor musical numbers. It’s good! (tt)
