About This DVD
"Yeojah, Jeong-hye (This Charming Girl)" begins with the heroine (Kim Ji-soo) cleaning the patio of her home, tending and watering her plants, delicately wiping the floor. Jeong-hye, 29, works at a local post office. She lives quietly, self-exiled to an interior, feminine world, a present life deeply affected by the psychological wounds of her past.
She is eccentric like a character from a Murakami Haruki story, and inhabits a world controlled by strong memories. But she is also trapped there in a state of emotional uncertainty, quiet and fearful of the world outside. She spends hours watching the home shopping network and annoys her friends by insisting on going to the same restaurant no matter what. Even though her habits are eccentric, they are immediately accessible.
We peer into the life of an average woman in contemporary Seoul. She recoils from the objectifying, masculine exterior world and prefers the comfort of her domestic one.
She struggles to solve her interior problems by keeping to herself. But her efforts are futile, and she will eventually have to open up if she is to survive. She slowly works to extricate her scarred psyche and repression.
One day, she finally summons the courage to invite a regular post office customer, a shy writer, to dinner. Their encounters are delicate and cautious. When he stands her up and offers a lame excuse, she has to decide whether to believe him.
