A jealous girlfriend (Seong Hyeon-ah), convinced her boyfriend (Ha Jung-woo) is growing tired of her ”same boring face,” disappears and turns to surgery to buy a new one. Then the jilted boyfriend meets a ”new” girl (Park Ji-yun), who is actually the old girl. And then it gets weirder. Time, Kim Ki-Duk’s pointed commentary on surfaces and consumer fads — with particular meaning for plastic-surgery-obsessed South Korea — is as tautly ”pretty” and inexpressive as the results for those who compulsively seek cosmetic perfection.
