About This DVD
In "Miss Gold Digger" ("Yonguijudo Miss Shin"), Han Ye-seul dominates the running time -- for 98 percent, to be exact -- as a likable beauty who compares and contrasts four different potential Mr. Rights. But the movie's heroine Shin Mi-su played by Han is not an original character. Rather it's a combination of Kim Ah-joong, who hit it big early this year with "200 Pounds Beauty" featuring herself as a symbol of transformation through plastic surgery, and Jeon Ji-hyeon, who represents a cranky yet enchanting beauty, as showcased in the classic romantic comedy "My Sassy Girl".
When Shin puts on chic dresses and sexy club outfits, she looks like Kim A-jung's after-surgery version. And when Shin throws up something unmentionable to a man after heavy drinking, she seems to imitate what Jeon Ji-hyeon did to Cha Tae-hyeon in the notorious subway scene. But Han Ye-seul is neither Kim Ah-joong nor Jeon Ji-hyeon. All three of the actresses are regarded as similarly iconic beauties in the country's entertainment industry, but placing Han's big-screen debut squarely between Kim and Jeon does not help her cut an original character. Instead of cultivating a unique character, director Park Yong-jib focuses on the personal charm of Han Ye-seul, who tiptoes, runs, screams and stumbles to flesh out a highly stereotyped Shin Mi-su, who is juggling shaky relationships with four different men in order to catch the ideal spouse.
Shin Mi-su, an up-and-coming advertising specialist, is keen to attract a superrich chaebol family member (played by Kwon O-joong) by doing some volunteer work in a bid to accentuate her angelic image. But she does not bet on a single candidate. One of her hedges is a bespectacled, dorky student (Kim In-kwon) who is preparing to pass the state bar exam -- a quick gateway to wealth and power in Korea. She constantly eggs and nudges him to study hard to pass the exam. Her devotion to such a long-term investment has a clear purpose: to become a wife of a powerful prosecutor. At the same time, Shin half-heartedly hangs out with a handsome rapper (Son Ho-young, former singer of the top music group G.O.D.), just for fun. The relationships become complicated when Shin encounters a fourth contender (Lee Jong-hyuk), a neighbor in the same apartment complex who happens to hold the key to one of her advertising projects.
Actress Han Ye-seul offers advice on how to ``shop'' for men in her screen debut. In her polygamous romantic relationships, she adopts different personas for each boyfriend, from being a prim and proper lady for her JFK-like boyfriend to a sexy party girl for a young rapper. But when her shopping spree starts to get tangled, the men show their true side when they discover that they have been manipulated.
