Perhaps Love

Subs By


As a bestselling author, Hyun (Ryu Seung Ryong) has known his fair share of fame and fortune, unfortunately that success hasn’t carried over into his personal life. Having divorced his first wife, Mi Ae (Oh Na Ra) years ago, Hyun doesn’t see his son, Sung Kyung (Sung Yoo Bin) as often as he would like. To make matters worse, his current wife, Hye Jin (Ryu Hyun Kyung) and daughter are living abroad while his daughter studies. As miserable as his personal life is, things professionally have only gotten worse as the years have gone by.  Suffering from a serious case of writer’s block, it’s been seven years since Hyun last had a book published. No matter how many times he sits down to write, or how hard he tries, he just can’t seem to work past this insufferable block. Taking time away from his writing to deliver a lecture at a local university, Hyun finds himself intrigued by the writing of Yoo Jin (Mu Jin Seong), one of the students in his class. Impressed by Yoo Jin’s writing and hoping a fresh perspective will help him overcome his current block, Hyun asks Yoo Jin to work on a novel together. Unable to resist the chance to work with such a well-known author, Yoo Jin accepts Hyun’s offer and the two immediately get to work. Feeding off each other’s creativity, their novel begins to take shape, but things take an unexpected turn when Yoo Jin begins to feel more for his mentor than admiration and respect. Will these newfound feelings get in the way of Hyun and Yoo Jin’s work or will they inspire their best work yet? An unexpectedly hilarious tale of life and love, “Perhaps Love” is a 2021 South Korean comedy drama film directed by Jo Eun Ji.
