Bad Guy (Directed by Ki-duk Kim)

This film one of the most twisted love stories I have ever seen. From the start of the movie, I know this was a film that i would enjoy.

Nabbeun Namja follows the tale of a pimp of few words and his love for a college student that he tricks into prostitution.

What is interesting about this film is that it focuses on a non sexual love in contrast to sex for hire. There are a lot of heavy punches in this film as well...

This is another example of a Great Korean Film although it will probally always be overshadowed by Oldboy. I feel that Oldboy can draw American Audiences in more, but Nabbeun Namja is much more artsy.
