In one of those lonely nights of trying to move on from the memory of his long-time girlfriend, a man received an erotic phone call from a woman while he was dreaming one of those steamy nights with his ex-lover. Caught off guard on what was happening he played along in the intimate weird phonecall adventure and was able to almost reach a satisfying peak before the woman realized that she dialed not her boyfriend’s number.
The “this is what realistic relationship is” tone has made this straightforward, lively and cheeky romcom hit all the love chakras in my body. Not since My Wife Got Married did I enjoy an R18 romance flick, but the started-weird-move-to-casual-and-turned-to-binding connection of the lead couple made me so inspired to embark on a dating binge. *giggles
It raised a question of which kind of lovers’ parting is more painful… Is it the long-running relationship or the half-way-inlove kind of intimacy? Is it worth it to be comfortable in a routinary relationship with someone who is unsure if he has even plans to get married or is it worth the risk to ditch it and have an honest, carefree emotional involvement that doesn’t take marriage as a scapegoat because you are tired of loving, breaking up, hurting and finding love again.
My PS partner is an example of another vibrant love movie I would strongly recommend to watch. It has a subtle indie appeal with a very smart screenplay. It went to the love trap cliche but the quirky development of the romance plus the organic feel of witnessing what relationship in late-20’s-early-30’s was about were depicted amusingly, realistically and candidly.
I gave it a 5 star rating and a space on my kmovie favorites because of how it has minimal mature content but was able to balance and even heightened the romantic essence, the seamless humor and the responsive chemistry between the main leads in the movie. Sweetly impudent, My PS Partner made me feel so wanting to be in love after watching it, and not the knight-in-the-shining-armour-cinderella-rose-petals kind of way but the wearing-his-oversized-shirt-singing-while-he-plays-the-guitar kind of love.
Still moping about his recent break up with his 5-year ex-girlfriend, Hyung-seung groped for the ringing handphone while he was in the middle of an erogenous reverie and was surprised to hear a woman’s voice. Still figuring what’s happening, his sleepy self became fully awake when the aphrodisiacal phone conversation became more intense, and just as he was nearing his climax, the woman, Yoon-jung realized her stupid mistake of calling the wrong person. Yoon-jung was a lingerie designer who has been dating her man for the last 5 years and was already feeling frustrated about his lack of wedding plans for them.
Hyung-seung met up with his friends to drown and numb himself with alcohol, and in tipsy state he tried calling his ex-girlfriend but was answered by the new lover of his ex. Furious, he inadvertently dialed the wrong number and landed an “all girls are whore” litany to the woman he got a phonesex conversation last night who also had a bad day after instead of a wedding ring she got a hairclip from her man on their 5th year anniversary date.
They engaged in a heated argument of who was the psycho between them but then he broke down and cry. Felt the pain of the man she was talking with and soon the two found themselves connecting to each other’s love frustrations. From then on they engaged in sassy and steamy conversation and when they agreed to meet up the sexy talks was fulfilled in action.
Their weird no-name-invented-yet relationship status has helped each other with their exasperating love problems but knowing and afraid that it would never work out with them Yoon-jung decided to stop their entanglement.
Yoon-jung has been patient of his boyfriend’s lack of consideration attitude and has been wanting to confront him about his infidelity issues. She almost reached her saturation point one night only to have him gave her a wedding proposal that she has been waiting for a while. Hyun-seung on the other hand still in limbo of the emotional throe he got ne after the other got anunexpected visit and another second serving with his ex-girlfriend. Then reality hit Hyun-seung, and not minding if it was right or wrong and whether there could be hope, he set forth to see Yoon-jung on her wedding day and in his weird, erotic love song declaration pushed her to admitting that she doesn’t want that marriage and even spilling the beans of her fiance’s illicit affair to an officemate who was also present in the wedding.
Yoon-jung went “runaway bride”, and not stopping and responding when Hyun-seung screamed ILoveYou to her.
Time flew and Yoon-jung found back her footing and was doing good in her business. She got a visit from her friends who arranged a slot for a phone-in segment to where Hyun-seung was having a disc jockey stint. She sang the same song Hyun-seung did on her cancelled nuptial day which was altered to a decent love song. He recognized her voice as she tried winning him back… and when he asked her “what cha wearin?”, she quipped a description of a sexy lingerie in response.
