Some Like It Hot/Hellcats (2008) (Korean)

Korean movie focusing mainly on comedy, coming of age, and drama.

Due to the severe lack of new Shoujo-ai/Yuri Anime’s, we won’t be seeing an Anime review (*sigh*…at least a recent one…) for quite some time. I hate dry spells…

This movie centers around a family of three. One mother, her daughter, and her sister, all going through a romantic crisis. The single mother Kim Young Mi (Lee MiSook), is going through a mid-life crisis where she worries she’s too old to attract men anymore. Until she meets Kyoung-soo, who is an aspiring actor in the same theater who find her 40-some self sexy. Her Sister, 27 year old screenplay writer, Kim Ah-mi (Kim MinHee), also going through a crisis of love. Having just broken up with her deadbeat boyfriend, meets a man she typically would not date. The daughter of Young Mi, Kim Kang-ae (Ahn SoHee from the Wonder Girls), finds herself in her own teenage crisis of being in love with her best friend and dealing with her sexuality and that she just might be a lesbian. Together, all 3 work through their struggles and come to terms with their selves.

I like this movie A LOT. Despite that 2/3 couple story lines are straight, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie as well as the lesbian pairing. Granted, it is a KOREAN movie so understandably they can’t take it too far, but still very well enjoyed. I would say its more drama/coming to terms with yourself kind of movie rather than a comedy, but I still enjoyed it non the less.

Yuri Rating: 4/10
