Most of the characters in the film have flaws (gee kind of like reality) and the boundaries of right and wrong are usually never as clear as one may expect.

movie dating rules-59

Really gave the sense of being a third party observer while Kang and Choi’s relationship unfolded.

Rules of Dating is a thought provoking film that may not sit well with easily offended people, but for others they will find that the film is an absolutely compelling movie.

The problem is that they are both in long lasting relationships.

Choi is actually engaged to a doctor, while Lee Yoo-Rim dated the same woman for the past six years.

Even with these negative faults, Choi & Lim were compatible and the questionable manner in which their relationship unfolded is something left for the audience to think about, particularly what are the boundaries / rules in dating? On a side note, damn did those clams look delicious in the restaurant!

Also, props to the cinematography, enjoyed the hand held camera style employed by director Han Jae-Rim.While Lee Yoo-Rim seems to be content with having their relationship continue as an affair, Choi worries about having sex without “love.” Eventually the administration at their place of work finds out about their relationship and they must now hide or reveal their relationship.The result is an an unexpected reversal of roles between them as co-workers, as well as a reversal of dynamics in their personal relationship.The movie deals with the woman willing yet indifferent to indulge in physical relationship with her professional senior.Ethics, morals, feelings, love show up and are turned down. While going out for drinks one night, Yu-rim suddenly tells Hong that he wants to have sex with her. And so begins a battle of will and wits, both between each other and within themselves, as both Yu-rim and Hong are unsure of what each other wants and what they want themselves.
