Song Seung-heon’s anguished love affair in Obsessed

Well, that certainly is eye-catching. Song Seung-heon’s erotic (and 19+ rated) melo film Obsessed (Korean title Human Addiction) is preparing for its release later this spring, and has released a trailer and stills as it begins its promo push.

Coming from the director of Bang-ja Chronicle and Untold Scandal, it’s no surprise to see this movie taking the same provocative melo angle as Song Seung-heon plays an elite soldier deployed to Vietnam in 1969, who falls in love with the character played by rookie actress Im Ji-yeon. The problem? He’s married to Jo Yeo-jung (who starred in the Bang-ja Chronicle, which did a lot to shooting her to fame), a woman who harbors ambitions of making her husband into a general.

Adding to complications, his lover is married as well—and to a subordinate who has sworn loyalty to him (played by Ohn Joo-wan). Hence the intense staring through windows in the preview, I presume. In the trailer, the two lovers’ connection is described as “two people who never should have met.” At one point, he laments, “If I don’t see you, I can’t breathe.” She wonders, “Why does my heart race so?” Illicit affair, duh.

I’m not entirely sold on the tone, which seems like it’s in danger of going rather over-serious and grandiose. On the other hand, played with the right intensity, the crossed-lovers narrative could twist hearts and wring tears. Obsessed releases in May.

i think most of the time kissing pictures especially wild kissing pictures look weird, it might look good in actual video, they both look like they are kissing in a wild way, i think if his face was on the other side it will look good, anyway i think it looks alright, song seung hoon is a total hottie so for me anything he does look sexy...

It looks a bit posed to me (not like an actual deep kiss but the actors just opening their mouths really wide to make it look like it).

Plus, a bit cliché.

I do find the garden picture absolutely gorgeous, but films about affairs 99% of the time just annoy/anger me so I'll give this one a miss.

I am not a prude but if I watch this I may not tell anyone about it. Like when my father's wife wanted to read 50 shades of gray...I bought it for her, as I am the procurement officer in the family, but I did not hear a peep out of her about the book after that.

I would read a sqeecap/eroticap if one happened. @joanne

I thought A Better Tomorrow was pretty lame and didn't always make sense (like it couldn't decide whether to be a gangster action film or an estranged brothers sob story).

Particularly when they were in a middle a shootout and somehow they had a five-minute conversation with the action around them seemingly stopping. As if!

For a passionate melo that trailer really bored me to tears, lol.

People may think im a crazy gal and surely i must be in the minority, but oddly enough i do not feel much when i look at SSH, but the guy is very handsome, I will acknowledge that. His acting just never managed to grab me emotionally, and that's usually the main thing i look for in my favorite actors.

I guess I'm crazy too because he does nothing for me although he is a good looking man. I think its more to do with his acting. Charismatic actors are the ones that I connect with like Kim Woo-bin. He may have an unique look but I love watching that boy on screen.

Then I must be crazy too, because he does nothing for me either. It's a lot to do with the bad acting, just like you.

And that goes both ways - I doubt I'd find Kim Woo-bin or Sung Joon so appealing if their acting didn't convince me of their hotness.

First reaction, Poster looks weird, like he's eating her face, not sexy at all. And main girl's face is quite ordinary, so I don't know why they picked her. I guess they were going for the "innocent wife" look. IDK.
I would have liked it better if Jo Yeo Jung played the lead character.

Maybe they picked her because she can act? She's an unknown so it's not lie any of us knows. Perhaps her character is the one pulling the weight of the story emotionally. Just because it's an erotic melo, it doesn't mean that the story might not also have some substance to it.

Aaaaaaahhhhhh THT, I hope this is good and not not good.

He always looks so good, but even in the trailer, he sounds kinda Jin-ish.

The thing about the man is he isn't even a little bit threatening. He's way too Lotte. Without that spark on screen, he isn't all that sexy-in-motion. In stllls, yes, because we can imagine the rest.

I will see this movie, of course, but it would the most fun to see this movie with you all somewhere outside drinking something. Maybe some homemade makgoeli?

(Warning: potential oblique spoilers ahead; feel free to delete this post if it's too much but this info was released by the film people.)

I love that no one is even thinking of watching this for the plot... ^_^ The entire plot (100% spoilers) was revealed online a few months ago when filming wrapped.

To put the affair (and movie title "Obsessed") in perspective...

His character here is supposed to be suffering from PTSD after the war. Then he meets the girl, whom he starts to see as his life buoy. Yeah he gets pretty obsessed with her.
His father-in-law is a powerful figure in the army, so you can guess what's going to hit the fan when the affair gets exposed. I think it's hinted that he doesn't love his wife and his marriage was due to his father-in-law's influence (can't recall this detail exactly). The girl, though, isn't as obsessed as he is.

Okay I'm not saying any more but the spoilers reveal every darn detail about the ending.

I am interested in the plot, actually. From the trailer I 'm guessing she's a nurse and gets attacked/injured/saved? The PTSD angle sounds interesting, we'll see. Perhaps I'll go back to watching SSH in "Ghost" to tide me over while I wait for this to be available and subtitled...

after watching Warm Words, i really detest secret affair, especially within married couple.. they may feel it's real true love, but it's crime to family.. wonder how this movie going to tackle the affair thing... nevertheless, SSH looks hot as ever..

I also detest an affair's theme therefore despite loving JJH I have no intention of watching Warm Words. But, the story line in this movie reminded me of When a Man Falls in Love where at first it was described as an affair as well but turns out to be a story of a single man who loves a woman who doesn't love him.

The movie might be about an affair but since it won't take 16 hours of my time I can take it especially with THT dropping the towel.

As the story goes, I think the main issue is more the obsession - where it come from and what it cause to a person who has all loose - than the actual affair. Also need to consider the time in history - war, pressure of closed or semi closed base + ranks. The sad thing will be if most if not all viewers will concentrate on the erotic portion (and who can blame us...) and not of the quality of the movie and characters .

The movie was definately intoxicating. It was some of the besting acting I have seen in a longtime and that includes the US of A. That movie would have acquired a PG rating here letting everyone in over the age of 13 unless you have an adult. Our r rated movies in the USA, show not only the entire body but 2 people really going at it on film. Gay sex: with two nudes of the same sex all over each other. That still makes a lot of people uncomfortable but people are getting better, knowing it is a part of many people's lives in this country. We have straight actors playing gay lovers. The hitch is many men in particular want men they know, feel extremely comfortable with on the outside. Gay men playing straight men, hate it just as much. One Hollywood actor put it 30 yrs ago, the first time he did an intimate film, saying on a morning talk show, "you get emotionally involved during that intimate scene, they say cut, cool him off, they bring you back, you're waiting for the climax, which never comes."

The acting was superb, do not understand Korean language but the acting held my interest. The movie for 19 and over was ridiculous. The high schoolers should have been able to handle that movie, w/o even noticing the erotic scenes. Crazy!!! Great movie, show it to everyone.

If, what is his name, Song, speaks English, he could definitely go to Hollywood!! Congrats!!! Open up the minds of your strictly Confusious country. Sex is a part of life.
