When possibly meeting your future spouse, be on the lookout for warning signs.  For instance, if your encounter is accompanied by a building shaking earthquake, maybe nature is throwing you a hint that your romance will not be stable.

Unfortunately, this advice eluded Doo-Hyun (Seon-gyun Lee of THE APPREHENDERS and R-POINT).  Seven years later, his wife Jung-in (Soo-jung Im, star of Chan-wook Park’s I’M A CYBORG, BUT THAT’S OK) and her mood swings are driving him bananas.  When his Japan based company announces they need someone to open an office in Korea, he desperately volunteers, hoping to leave his wife behind.  No such luck.  But perhaps his new Casanova-ish neighbor (WAR OF THE ARROWS’ Seung-yong Ryoo) can take her off his hands…

A box office hit in Korea, directed by Kyu-Dong Min (director of the Korean Horror classic MEMENTO MORI), ALL ABOUT MY WIFE is a slick, crowd pleasing remake of the Argentinian rom-com A BOYFRIEND FOR MY WIFE that proposes if the grass across the fence looks greener, maybe you just need another angle.
