  • An ambitious Korean secretary becomes a sexual pawn in the lives of his wealthy employers, experiencing an acute crisis of conscience after falling for their gorgeous daughter in writer/director Im Sang-soo's follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2010 drama THE HOUSEMAID. Young-jak works directly for Yoon -- the influential president of a major conglomerate. Young-jak has designs on owning his own company some day when, enraged at having caught her husband sleeping with their Filipino maid, Yoon's wife Madame Baek targets him for seduction. Meanwhile, Young-jak finds himself irresistibly attracted to Yoon and Madame Baek's virtuous young daughter. But to pursue her would mean giving up on his dreams of achieving unlimited wealth -- a sacrifice Young-jak isn't sure he's willing to make as he climbs the ladder to success.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Playing a key role in establishing the gilded cage that imprisons everybody, villains included, is the cold luxury of Kim Young-hee and Kim Junes sets, caressed by Kim Sung-kyus sumptuous lensing in grays and blacks."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "Mr. Im has an eye for luxury....He is both a connoisseur of high-end decadence and something of a moralist, using his camera as a vehicle for voyeurism and as a sharp instrument of social critique."
    New York Times
