A strong comedy-drama with plenty of remake potential
4 June 2012 | by CoolestmoviesSee all my reviews

A structurally sound and colourful working-class comedy in which an educated prostitute (Ye Ji- won) runs for a senate seat, causing untold embarrassment to her old-boy political rivals (the comedy) and unintended consequences for some of her hooker companions once the spotlights get a little too hot (the drama). The screenplay by Choi Jong-tae and Kim Jin-su eschews the broad laughs one might reasonably expect from a high concept Korean comedy like this, and instead allows sharp dialogue and realistic situations do the heavy lifting. Probably more remake potential in this film than in the dozen or so Korean horror pictures that were picked up by opportunistic American producers.
