  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Tae-suk (Jae Hee) is a young man who makes himself at home in strangers' houses while they're away. One day he wanders into the home of a beautiful woman who happens to be home at the time. After discovering that Sun-hwa (Seung-yeon) is a battered wife, Tae-suk comes to her resuce with the aid of her husband's "3-Iron" and some golf balls. Soon after, the two ride off into the night and on to the beginning of an unusual relationship. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture looks quite pleasing, with a well-balanced color scheme. Images are sharp and nicely detailed, with natural shadow delineation and contrast. Some dirt is noticed in the source element. Pixelization is minimal, although occasional edge halos are noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
