Fair Love turns Ahn Sung-ki into Korea’s Oppa

I’ve previously mentioned the movie Fair Love, which depicts a romance unfolding between a 50-something bachelor (Ahn Sung-ki) and his friend’s 20-something daughter (Lee Hana). The film, which is described as light-hearted and humorous, was well-received at Pusan International Film Festival, and has now released a preview trailer, which is pretty cute (watch below).

A source with the production said, “National actor Ahn Sung-ki gives off a cute vibe as he finds himself at a loss in front of Lee Hana. He has acted in many melodramas over the years, but as he becomes this immature ‘oppa,’ he melts icy hearts with his cuteness and you can’t take your eyes off him.”

Fair Love opens on January 14.

In the movie, Ahn Sung-ki’s character has never dated before, so he’s a bit awkward at the whole falling in love thing. In the beginning of the clip, he wants to be called “oppa” (all hail the power of the word “oppa”!), and she obliges him — to the scorn of his friends. (At the end of the clip, the woman grumbles at him for being ridiculous and walks away humming. He complains, “She should just curse me — what’s with the hymn?”)

Ohhh, I totally see shades of "Eat Drink Man Woman", but as a rom-com? Hope it does well. Lee Hana looks more animated than I've ever seen her.

@Samsooki

Why? It seems pretty cute! Cos he wants to be called "oppa"? Which is, again, cute imho. I like how all of his friends are teasing him. hahah.

I'm with samsooki...I felt my face turning red as I watched the trailer. Seeing people get embarrassed makes me squirm like a kindergartner needing to go potty. I'll probably watch it, but through my fingers.

I'm an odd bird. I dont' get embarrassed for me or for the silly stuff I do, but I do have a real problem when I see other people doing embarrassing things. I squirm and I turn red and I want to just get them away.

Like I have no problem going on stage and acting like an idiot, but watching the following part of Little Miss Sunshine gave me serious, serious agita. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CthB71GqYa0&feature=related

@shubi, you must be very very young if Ahn Sung-ki looks like he's older than 50s. ^^

But i'm with everyone else who's creeped out or imagines hiding behind the couch. The age diff is just too much and Lee Hana doesn't exude enough (er, any?) sexiness to pull it off without it seeming ...unseemly.

Now a woman in her 50s + a young guy -- that would be cool. ::kekeke from ICOMYM member::

@Samsooki - hehe, you used "agita" -- one of my fave words!

@13 Samsooki

I agree, while I avoid embarrassing situations like the plague as much as possible for myself, I feel almost a hundred times more embarrassed when someone else is in the situation. Full-on redness, flushing, nervous sweats and panicky "awwwkwaaard" get me out of here syndrome. Sympathetic Mortification? I dunno... XD

I think it looks cute though, and I don't really get the hang-up some people have over the whole age-difference thing (but then, I did date a 50 year-old when I was 25, so I guess I wouldn't...). Seriously, if both parties are genuinely happy in the relationship, what does it matter?

The age difference part doesn't bother me at all, I think the story sounds really cute; it's just that the scenes shown in the trailer made me a little twitchy! ;-)

Sympathetic Mortification...I like it!

Yes, sympathetic mortification. It sucks.

Try watching the k-drama classic, Secret, with Kim Haneul as the good girl and Ha Ji Won as the bad girl.

Ha Ji Won is the lying liar who lies and Kim Haneul always ends up getting shafted because of Ha Ji Won's trickerations. It was.... VERY difficult to watch this drama with my wife who was exasperated / annoyed to the point of not watching it with me, as I would have to watch from various hiding places and from doorways during uncomfortable scenes.

LOLOLOL, the trailer's hysterical. BUT, I also don't really feel comfortable with the age diff. The comedy's funny but I can't help but feel unpleasant undertones when I think of it outside the comedy of the actual movie. Still, wish it luck! The oppa thing is epic, all hail the power of the word oppa indeed, ahahaha. *chuckles all the way to work*

the preview is hilarious! though i would be horrified if one of my friends ended up dating my daughter (if i had a daughter), i'm curious to see how this movie will portray the relationship. both actors are usually great so it's on my list of movies to watch.

Cute, but I'm not at the age where I can say "age is just a number". Or am I in the right position to say so. Regardless, I find both leads talented and very animated so I will check this out when it is subbed. Watching the trailer all I understand was "oppa" and I still to this day only have a limited clue of what that even means in English. [ oppa = big brother (?) ]

@DL

Oppa is big brother in Korean, but it is also a nickname for a girl's boyfriend from my understanding. It gives a strange twist certainly to figuring out if a guy's a woman's brother or boyfriend.

On the movie itself I find it cute (considering I don't understand Korean) and am another not bugged out by the age difference. However, I'm another with the symptom of sympathetic mortification, so I'd twist myself like a six year old if I watched this. However, I still might watch it anyways because it *does* seem pretty cute.

Ahn Sung-ki for the win. He came to our university to give a speech and he was ultra nice and actually autographed things and stayed to take a few photos with people,even when it was already late at night.

@ Samsooki, I love how you keep mentioning your wife as "Mrs. Samsooki". I honestly don't know why, but every time I read it, it makes me feel all giddy and what not. haha

Goodness! So adorable... the part he was holding the sparklers things and waiting with the young boy with flower in his hand...

Sometimes, I underestimate why Korean variety or drama emphasize on "Oppa" that much... maybe coz I am into younger guys... but seriously no guy can resist an "Oppa", and esp from someone cute like Lee Hana to Anh Sung-ki...

The feeling of the movie made me sigh with happiness... and its just the trailer >.<

MUST WATCH!!!

Haha...when you first posted about the movie, I expected it to be quiet and introspective. I was not expecting a comedy, but I think it's going to be interesting.

The trailer does appear to be light and funny, and I am very tempted to watch it when it comes available with English subs...but I'd be lying if I said the age difference didn't make me a bit uncomfortable. I'm not a prude, and I generally believe that what goes on between two people of legal age is their business, and their business alone.

Perhaps it's because I'm a 53 yr old man, and my oldest daughter is 21...and the thought of a similarly aged friend of mine getting romantically involved with a 21 yr old girl(or worse yet, MY 21 yr old daughter)...just doesn't feel right. It could be that I'm a bit too close in age to the lead male character in this story, so it's difficult for me not to filter the storyline through the eyes of a protective father with daughters close in age to the lead female character.

But, again, it does look like the story is being treated in a light, funny, and sensitive manner...so I may be in for a really nice surprise. I'll have to give it a fair chance.

Older woman: Oh sweet Jesus...

Bald guy with glasses: Total madness! What, you think you're a bachelor?!!

Hyeong-man: I AM a bachelor!

Bald guy with glasses: Well, err, yeah, I guess you are a bachelor... but GAAHH, this just don't seem riiiiight....

Nam Eun: Oppa.

Nam Eun: Oppa!

Hyeong-man: Yes, Nam-Eun-ah. It's me, Oppa.

Hyeong-man: Give Oppa some cold water.

Older guy: Oppa? Who is Oppa?

Hyeong-man: Nam-Eun-ee.... is sexy.

weird looking guy: I'm correct in saying she's nuts?

Hyeong-man: You're meeting a man now?

Nam Eun: Are you upset now?

Nam Eun: I will stop pestering you now.

Hyeong-man: Yeeeeaahhhhh.. oh hot hot... Nam-Eun-ah!

Hyeong-man: It's not like I'm raising her as a daughter...

Older woman: That's so cute, honestly. Call him Oppa? hahaha! Laaa laaa..(singing)

If I was to ask the female audience of this great Blog, If you prefer an older partner over a younger one, I will lean to say that most will prefer and older partner.
Maybe experience and maturity has a lot to do with it, we know that most man mature at a later time than your average female counter part.... Having said that are we in 2009 still hang up about age difference?
How old is to old?
I must say this unless you are in that kind of situation you will never know whether one can develop romantic feelings for someone older or younger than ones self.....
@15 amhrancas, I am in total agreement with you, as long as you and your partner are OK with it, the opinion of the rest of the world should not matter.....By the way I am 12 years older than my girlfriend....35/47.... :O} I am so happy to be her lovely "OppA" Ha,ha.ha.....

I hope Lee Hana had better material to work w/ than in "Triple" (even so, she was the best thing in "Triple").

As for ASK, not much more that can be said about him that already hasn't been said.
