Event Details

Architect’s-wife Seo-hyun (Lee Mi-sook), is constrained by domesticity, until one day she meets her younger sister’s 27-year-old fiancé, Woo-in (Lee Jung-jae). Seo-hyeon promises to help find the perfect home for him and her sister, before her sister returns from the US to marry Woo-in. Some 10 years her junior, Woo-in is refreshingly endearing and charming, bringing Seo-hyun a new lease in life. Emotions simmer and start to crystallise; soon both face an overwhelming desire to risk all that they once held dear....


It’s an oft-told story of desire and betrayal, but An Affair is recounted with clarity and restraint against a metallic 90s colour palette. Just as the bold hues of the classic melodrama spoke to heightened emotions, An Affair’s pre-millennial minimalism echoes the introversion of its characters. A star-making breakthrough for both Lee Jung-jae and director E J-yong, this beautifully shot film also saw the comeback of one of the biggest actresses of the 1980s, Lee Mi-sook. The ultra-modern interior design and various apartments it visits create a Seoul built upon loveless spaces – but An Affair still cries out for the bliss of companionship, boldly prioritising it above family, children and the home.

An Affair plays as part of the Korean Film Nights 2019 season, Home Truths.
