Sexy antics drive romantic comedy Dating Skills

There’s another movie opening on the same day as The Punisher, and this one is titled Dating Skills, taking us away from the dark side of revenge and violence to laughter and romance. (Actually there are three movies opening that day, with Lee Jong-seok and Seo In-gook’s swimming movie No Breathing, which we’ve already covered, rounding out the trio.)

Dating Skills (which was once titled the more interesting Mango Tree) is touted as a “sexy romantic comedy,” which means it’s racier than your average rom-com; it even put out a separate “adult” teaser with sliiiightly more suggestive content, though I really don’t see why that one required a 19+ age label. In any case, the movie stars Seo Ji-seok (Would You Give Love Away, High Kick 3) as what appears to be the man-prize for the two friends, played by Hong Su-ah (A King’s Dream) and Han Su-ah (Friend 2, Dancing Queen). Ha, I’m sure those names didn’t get confusing on set, hm?

The ladies play opposite personalities (of course), with Hong Su-ah being the innocent type who’s waiting for her One and Only Fated Love, while Han Su-ah chooses to think of her current flame as her fate, for now at least. The friends win tickets to a trip to the Philippines (the film was shot entirely on location in Cebu), where they run into a hottie who catches their eye: Seo Ji-seok has everything a woman could want (looks, personality, smarts), and both decide to claim him as their fates. Apparently they do this by flaunting their sexiness, a lot, with plenty of bikini scenes and the like. So this isn’t really something you’d see for the plot development or deep meaning—it practically has B movie written all over it—but could be a light, fun, unchallenging watch.

Dating Skills, which is restricted to audiences over 18, opens on October 20.

Here’s the main teaser:

Tourist attractions

Being one of the major tourist Islands of Cebu, Mactan Island boasts of a diverse collection of tourist spots and attractions. Being a coral island, Mactan offers some of the best diving, snorkeling, island hopping, jet ski, sailing and cultural activities of any island in the Philippines.

The only aquarium attraction in the Visayas is also located on the island.

Glad they shot this earlier in the year. Cebu was just recently rocked by violent earthquakes. Didn't hear about this in local media. Interesting.

LOL, first thing that came to me was definitely B-grade with the supposed 'sexy' content as driving force instead of meaningful plot development, but then again - those are easy watch that I'd pick on a stressful day.

The punisher is definitely my pick out of all three, although I don't really think I'll pay to see any - unless everyone gushes about them... and I feel left out =P

They were at the Basilica de Sto Niño de Cebu? Sigh, it's really sad how the 7.2 magnitude earthquake destroyed the cathedral's belfry.

Yeah, wishing them well with the earthquake recovery.

Yep, def. looks like a B movie-- too bad. I really like Seo Ji Seok, and not just because of his cute little smile-lines. I don't know if he could handle it, but I'd like to see him take on a meatier role.

Holla! :)
More people are coming to my hometown (k-drama and k-pop personalities) and sadly, I have not seen or met any one of them. It's still nice to know that our place is being appreciated for the beauty it holds.

Btw, I think they shot this somewhere in Bantayan.

Hmmm, is it just me or has the lady on the left in the top photo, been badly photoshopped, she has really weird proportions and seems to be bending like a contortionist.

I don't know where you've been this whole time, but Koreans prefer whiter complexions, not tan complexions.

Yeah, I get that, and I am all in favor of pretty women wearing bikinis in my movies. However, anyone that pasty white is going to burn like crazy. It isn't healthy to be on the beach like that.

The sensible one of the two is wearing sunblock and a sunhat, although that is obviously going to be be played for comedy.
