Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: two writers–one a seventy year-old poet and the other a thirty year-old novelist–are both in love with the same teenaged girl, and so they explore and express their feelings for her by having a lot of sex. There’s no punchline there because it’s no joke. Sometimes words can’t do a thing, and only flesh will communicate your true feelings.
The actor who plays the muse/mutual love interest of the writers is named Kim Go-Eun, and according to Wikipedia, she had no previous drama experience outside of a few school productions (art school, that is) but the director and other cast members were powerfully wooed by her beauty, honesty, and innocence. It’s a tough breakout role, but she really nailed it (and those guys, she totally nailed them, too).
