Actor Jae-Ha (Park Sung-Woong) is cast for the two-man stage play “Unchain.” Also cast for “Unchain” is idol star Young-Woo (Oh Seung-Hoon). Young-Woo is not enthused about appearing in the stage play. At first, the two men do not get along. As they get more immersed in the characters they play and the gay-themed story, the two men develop unexpected feelings. Meanwhile, Hee-Won (Yoon Seung-Ah) is a Jae-Ha’s girlfriend. She has a strange feeling about the relationship between Jae-Ha and Young-Woo.
I read a bad review somewhere criticizing the main actors as an unconvincing couple. To counter, the film doesn’t try to be about love. It’s more about this manipulative, obsessive, personality. It’s about not being able to distinguish yourself from a character and how far someone will go to be the best. If yeong-woo comes off as more creepy/intense than loving/innocent. good. Like a psychological thriller, the film kept me invested and surprised.
