Plot

Hyun-Joon (Song Sae-Byeok) is a comic book artist from the Jeolla-do region, now working in the capital city of Seoul. One day he meets Da-Hong (Lee Si-Young), a fan of his who is from the port city of Pusan. The couple's relationship has progressed where they are now thinking of marriage. The only problem is Da-Hong's father (Baek Yoon-Sik) has a severe prejudice of people from the Jeolla-do region. When Da-Hong's father was younger he was a professional baseball pitcher. He was then beaned in the eye by a pitcher which ended his baseball career. The pitcher was from the Jeolla-do region. Making the couple's possible marriage even more tricky, Hyun-Joon's father (Kim Eung-Soo) wants his son to marry a local girl from the Jeolla-do region.

The couple then comes up with an idea. Hyun-Joon will go to Da-Hong's home and tell a "small" white lie about his background - that he is a native of Seoul. Now, Hyun-Joon must lose his regional Jeolla-do dialect and also be able to lie to his possible future in-laws.

Meanwhile, Hyun-Joon's father sends his assistant Dae-Sik (Park Cheol-Min) to follow Hyun-Joon. Can the couple ever survive?

KPips To someone else's comment. The main actors are only 3 years apart. Maybe due to face "enhancements" they look older than their actual age when they're trying to look younger or better. Whatever the matter. Don't get hung up on age difference and focus on the story, plot, scenery, acting skills, directing skills and overall outcome of the film and dramas you're watching.

Marce I love Lee Si Young! But why do they always put her in movies with old men -.-

Ki ok "Dangerous Meeting" starts out really promising with the setup of a comic book artist from Jeolla province and a woman, who is a fan of his, starts dating. When the couple gets serious the woman reveals her father has a deep hatred for people from Jeolla province. Furthermore, the comic book artist's father wants his son to marry a local from Jeolla province. When the couple goes to meet the girl's father - they lie about the guy's background and state he is from Seoul.

Up to this point the movie feels like there will be more laughter and romance blooming in the film. Unfortunately the way the movie resolves all the problems was just weak and half-assed. Some of the twists were just downright stupid (especially the gay guy coming out of nowhere).

For people unfamiliar with Korean history I guess the subject matter of Jeolla province versus Busan area may seem confusing. There has been traditionally some forms of prejudices against people from the Jeolla province, with sterotypes of people from that area being "dishonest" and such stemming from the 1950's. I guess these types of stereotypes are similar to perceptions of the deep south in the U.S. It will be interesting to see how well the eventual English subtitles for this movie on a future DVD release will be able to express the sentiments found in the movie.

Anyways, the movie turned out to be my least favorite movie from this year so far, even though the first 1/3rd was promising and provided moderate amounts of laughter. In retrospect it just felt the screenwriters came up with a good scenario but came up with continuous brainfarts on how to resolve the scenario.
