Fair Love follows festival success with January premiere
When Fair Love screened at this year’s Pusan International Film Festival as part of its Gala Presentation, it was hailed by critics as “the year’s most lovable film” and received a lot of praise. The film stars Lee Hana (Triple) and one of Korea’s most-loved veterans, Ahn Sung-ki, and has set a date for its wide theatrical release: it will open in January 2010.
In the film, the two portray a May-December romance. Ahn Sung-ki’s character is a rather sad fiftysomething bachelor whose only skill is in fixing broken cameras, who agrees to his friend’s deathbed wish to look after his daughter. Lee plays the twentysomething daughter, and the relationship between the two unexpectedly develops. The setup has the potential to go for the sensational angle, but instead the story is described as “sweet and charming.”
The poster above bears the tagline, “Ajusshi, you’re beautiful,” which is taken from a line in the film spoken by Lee Hana. The sudden admission renders Ahn speechless and kicks off their romance.
