La Dolce Vita
Bitter Sweet Life
A critically acclaimed, thought-provoking tale about the consequences of life and love.
Lee Jun-su (Lee Dong-wook) is dead. The question is: Was it suicide? The story takes the viewers back six months to start at the "beginning" of this story, when Jun-su meets Yun Hye-jin (Oh Yeon-su) in the snow-covered countryside of Japan. His dark secrets suddenly seem almost inconsequential in this foreign, purely white land, and he and Hye-jin slowly fall for one another. Hye-jin is traveling by herself, taking time apart from her successful husband Ha Dong-won (Jeong Bo-seok). Part of the reason is that he's cheating on her with a beautiful young woman Hong Da-ae (Park Shi-yeon), but just as big a reason is that her life is nothing worth living for. Da-ae, on the other hand, rather likes her life since she has no money problems with Dong Won around, but things change when she meets the elusive Jun-su and falls for him hard.
As the viewers follow a detective struggling to piece together the life of Lee Jun-su, they will find themselves captivated by not only the melancholy storytelling, but also by the haunting music and beautiful cinematography.
