OBSESSED (R21)

This movie sees heart-throb Song Seung Heon in his most daring role.

He plays a Korean soldier who falls for - and starts an affair with - the wife of his subordinate.

He is best known for playing a romantic lover in his previous dramas, so it's refreshing to see Song opting for something edgier and showing his versatility as an actor. One might even be shocked that the idol is willing to strip to show off his six-pack.

Considering it is her first movie role, actress Im Ji Yeon's daring performance is commendable.

But the storyline becomes far too melodramatic, and the ending is guaranteed to divide opinions.
