Alternatively known as ‘Yourself and Yours’, this acclaimed South Korean drama chronicles a jealous-ridden man’s passionate search – often bordering on insanity – for his wife whom he last saw bickering in a drunken fit with an unknown stranger. The problem is that he sees her face in that of every woman he encounters.

Kim Joo-Hyuk portrays the role of the envious husband with panache. You-Young Lee is almost perfect as the adulterous wife. Go watch this amazing movie if you haven’t done that already!
