About This DVD
Enough with violent and eye-frowning pitiful humors! We now have a clever and enjoyable comedy. [Reversal of Fortune] is it. A unique setting of two interchanged worlds combined with perky characters and warm laughter will change Korean comedy for good. Unlike past Korean comedy features with inappropriate language and pitiful humors, [Reversal of Fortune] presents a whole new fresh comedy.. A comic episode of the star KANG Seung-wan's maneuver in and out of two worlds presents to the Korean audience a world never-before-seen. This film will trigger a turnover of the entire Korean film industry in 2003.
KIM Seung-woo of [Break Out] meets HA Ji-won of [Sex is zero], both of whom have won much acclaim as top comedy actors through the two films in 2002. [Break Out]'s comic hero, KIM Seung-woo, who has made 1.3 million audience laugh across the country last year, takes on the role of KANG Seung-wan, a slow yet wile main character. Also, his dual role-playing as a securities broker and a playboy sports superstar will add to the excitement. HA Ji-won, who has changed into a box office queen from a horror queen will take on the role of HAN Ji-young, an arrogant, yet ditsy woman. KANG Sung-jin from [Attack the Gas Station], [Break Out], and [Jail Breakers], LEE Moon-shik from [My Boss My Hero], and LIM Chang-jung, the master of comedy have come together to make appearances in this hilarious comedy.
[Reversal of Fortune] draws on a comic turnover of a man that goes in and out of two different worlds. Seung-wan, the main character who's living a near bankrupt life as a securities broker, one day comes across his clone in a tunnel whereby his life makes a complete turnaround as a sports superstar, a dream he's given up long ago. [Reversal of Fortune] presents to the audience laughter as well as warm drama as it plays out everyone's curiosity of eWhat if I had done that?' in an extraordinary setting.
KANG Seung-wan (KIM Seung-woo), who was once a child golf star, is now living a dull life of a securities broker. Because of his innocent and gullible nature, he's treated as a mockery of the company whereby he's being chased by a mobster, MAH Kang-sung (LEE Moon-shik) for having invested all of MAH's money into a near bankrupt company. On the day he's nearly beat to death by MAH, he drives through a tunnel where he comes across his clone. As both Seung-wans are startled, Seung-wan crashes into a tunnel wall.
Seung-wan regains his consciousness. He looks fine and feels fine, yet right when he's about to treat what's happened to him as a dream, everyone on the streets crowd him in. And what's with the giant park in the middle of Main Street? Right then, Seung-wan looks to the billboards full of his advertisement pictures. It's a world where his dreams as a golf star have come true. That's when a woman, or Seung-wan't wife (HA Ji-won), appears in front of bewildered Seung-wan to slap him in his face. Good thing he's a superstar, but not only is he a sports star, but he's a playboy alright. Unlike his wife, HAN Ji-young (HA Ji-won) who would go at him for sleeping around with a celebrity actress, KANG Seung-wan falls for the woman who slaps him on their first meeting and moves in with her.
Unlike Ji-young, who treats Seung-wan like dirt thinking that he's her husband, Seung-wan makes an awkward face. Ji-young, who shows her rough sleeping habits thinking that he's her husband though she suspects him for being too nice of a guy suddenly. Right when she was about to call it quits on her marriage, she is moved by his kindness. But suddenly he's entrusted with a mission to be completed when everything was happy-go-lucky with his new mansion and a good looking wife. He must compete with world golf champion Bill Jackson. Not having played golf for over ten years, what is he going to do next? But there must not be any turning back especially as Ji-young is slowly opening up to him. A victory is a must!
