Description: First comes phone sex, then comes real love? Writer-director Byun Sung Hyun (The Beat Goes On) spices up the romantic comedy genre with Whatcha Wearin'?, a hilarious film that proves love can truly grow from the most unlikely of places. Kim Ah Joong (200 Pound Beauty) stars as a woman who makes a phone sex call to rescue her relationship, only to accidentally call a heartbroken man, played by Ji Sung (Protect the Boss). The result is a love story that only uses a lowbrow concept to explore the nature of modern relationships.

An unlikely Christmas hit despite its adult-only rating, Whatcha Wearin' delighted Korean audiences with its brand of raunchy humor, sexy dialogue and a sweet, touching love story.


After discovering that his ex-girlfriend has already found a new boyfriend, Hyun Seung (Ji Sung) suffers an emotional breakdown. Just as he is ready to swear off love forever, he gets an anonymous phone sex call from a complete stranger. However, Yoon Jung (Kim Ah Joong), the girl on the other end of the line, discovers that she has called the wrong number and quickly hangs up. Stuck in a dead-end relationship with her boyfriend of five years, Yoon Jung was hoping the phone sex call would spice up their relationship. Instead, the call sets off a strange phone-based friendship with Hyun Seung that may turn into real love.

 

 

The Film:

Here comes the brave, hot sexy idol! Devastated by a recent break-up, Hyun-seung (Ji Sung) can’t get a grip on life. After learning his ex-girlfriend has a wonderful new boyfriend, he struggles with sleep and seethes with jealousy. One night, he receives a mysterious phone call from a stranger. Even with flawless beauty and seemingly perfect boyfriend, Yun-jung (Kim A-joong) feels deprived of real affection. She sets up a plan to get his complete attention by spicing up their relationship with a sexy phone call. But the guy on the other end of the line isn’t her boyfriend! Don’t hesitate. Be frank! Don’t be shy. Play wild! Everything you need to know about R-rated relationships. It doesn’t get hotter than this!

Watcha Wearin'? is another unabashed film out of South Korea with some sex and nudity. It is cited as category 'III', meaning Teenager restricted (below 19 prohibited, also known as 19-year+). It is on Blu-ray looking very competent. Colors have a richness, detail is solid in the few close-ups and contrast is at the higher end. No damage, or marks and the visuals are appealing. No complaints - it'll probably never look better for home theatre presentations.

Audio :

DeltaMac use a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround at 2519 kbps (16-bit) in the original Korean-language. There aren't a few comedic effects but, there is only minor aggression. The pleasnt score is by Hong-jip Kim (The Housemaid, A Good Lawyers Wife, Wanee & Junah) and sounds gentle and crisp in the lossless. There are optional English and Chinese subtitles and my Oppo has identified it as being a region 'A'-locked.

 

 

Extras :

Only a trailer. I would have appreciated some interviews etc.

 

 

BOTTOM LINE:
Watcha Wearin'? is a very cute and very adult romance-comedy. There is nudity and sex but it is more about the frank language used - and this may be the translation. I liked it - quite a lot although it may have ran a bit long. These are nice, honest characters trying to navigate in a world of technology-aided relationships. The sex-talk aspects were not treated as taboo - but natural and honest - something box sexes seek - and gain benefit from the openness in conversation. No silly sight-gags - it's really about communication. The nudity/sex scene is a minor aspect of the film. The Blu-ray is fine for an HD viewing and a fun night to watch with your better-half. Recommended at a reasonable price!

About the Reviewer: Hello, fellow Beavers! I have been interested in film since I viewed a Chaplin festival on PBS when I was around 9 years old. I credit DVD with expanding my horizons to fill an almost ravenous desire to seek out new film experiences. I currently own approximately 9500 DVDs and have reviewed over 5000 myself. I appreciate my discussion Listserv for furthering my film education and inspiring me to continue running DVDBeaver. Plus a healthy thanks to those who donate and use our Amazon links.

Although I never wanted to become one of those guys who focused 'too much' on image and sound quality - I find HD is swiftly pushing me in that direction.
