Chunhyang is as timeless as the story of love’s loss and loyalty it tells. Mongryong, son of an influential government official, is secretly married to Chunhyang, a common courtesan. When he’s suddenly transferred away, she has to refuse powerful men to be loyal to the husband she can’t acknowledge and hope he’ll return before the burden becomes too much to bear.

Lost In Love (2006) (Korean)
Country: South Korea
Subtitle: English (srt)
"Lost in Love" is a confession of fear, be it fear of love, of regret, of loss or of saying the wrong things out of indifference or ignorance.
The film follows the emotional paths of two college friends, Yeon-su and Woo-jae, over their 10 years of friendship.
Yeon-su (Song Yoon-ah) has long had a crush on Woo-jae (Seol Kyeong-gu), an athlete on the school crew team. But she's not bold enough to say it, and he's not attentive enough to sense it.
She instead chooses a safer route by trying to create seeming coincidences that might give her an opportunity to move the relationship forward.
For instance, when the last bus to Seoul is about to leave the terminal during her visit to his military base, she intentionally waits in the bathroom for the bus to leave, hoping it will give her a natural excuse to spend a night with Woo-jae.
