About This DVD
Popular actress Kim Ha-neul and Yoon Kye-sang (of the former band G.O.D.) are faced with a relation crisis in their sixth year together. Park Hyeon-jin directed and wrote "Lovers of 6 Years". She previously wrote scenarios for some of director Lim Sang-soo's projects. KIM and YOON's characters live next door to each other and are in a long term relationship. Their relationship encounters some problems while at the same time they start having feelings for someone else who they met through their work. Kim Ha-neul became a star when she starred opposite of kwon Sang-woo in the comedy "My Tutor Friend". They reprised their success with another comedy, "Almost Love". KIM also played in the romantic drama "Ditto" alongside Yoo Ji-tae and in the horror film "Dead Friend".
Should couples live together before tying the knot? If this question were asked 20 years ago, most Korean respondents would have expressed their shock and disbelief, much less show any willingness to weigh pros and cons. Back to the present: Koreans are not so ultraconservative any longer and the number of Korean couples trying out cohabitation is on the rise. The proof is that even a mass-market romantic flick like "Lovers of 6 Years" (6-nyeonjjae yeonae-jung) has chosen this daring topic and treats cohabitation as nothing special.
"Nothing special" is also a keyword for Da-jin (Kim Ha-neul), a hard-working editor at a publishing company, and her boyfriend Jae-young (Yoon Kye-sang), an equally diligent home shopping producer. Six years ago, they began to date. Two years ago, they started sleeping together. Now, they are next-door neighbors, but the wall separating their houses does not have any significant function. They virtually share their rooms -- and bedrooms at night. They know each other inside and out so much so that they begin to feel a bit bored, and the magical sparks and excitement is already gone. Their relationships seem to have passed a stage where something special is at work.
As with other cohabitating couples, there is a risk that Da-jin and Jae-young remain unmarried and yet share so many things in life. Infidelity is one of many risks, though it's pretty fatal given that cohabitation does not entail as strong a commitment as marriage. Da-jin tries to hire a top-notch book designer for her latest project. She juggles up various strategies to win the heart of this much-sought-after designer without realizing that her charm as an attractive woman goes rarely unnoticed. By the way, Kim Ha-neul seems at ease with her role, even in a scene where she has to act as an experienced lover. While Da-jin has to stave off repeated come-ons from the new acquaintance, her boyfriend is forced to deal with an unabashed temptation from a daring part-time worker at the cable shopping mall.
