KILLING ROMANCE is a camera-drunk comic fantasia about a former superstar celebrity, Hwang Yeo-Rae (Lee Hanee), trapped in a toxic marriage with egomaniacal, obscenely wealthy tycoon Jonathan Na (Lee Sun-kyun), who wooed her while on vacation on a South Pacific island. Teaming up with her young fanboy neighbor Kim Beom-Woo (Gong Myoung), they hatch a plan to break her free from her gilded cage. Alternately horrific and hilarious episodes unfold as the two devise an ill-advised plot to kill Jonathan and reclaim Yeo-Rae''s freedom and stardom.
Helmed with an adroit hand by Korean comedy’s enfant terrible, Lee Won-suk (HOW TO USE GUYS WITH SECRET TIPS, HIFF 2013), the film features unforgettable performances that power up an electroshock of a tale, dancing between a love story, a musical, a murder plot and a million things in between. This is peak Korean movie inventiveness.
