Daisy Review 2006 South Korea

A South Korea/Hong Kong Film directed by Andrew Lau(Infernal Affairs) and starring Jun Ji-hyun(My Sassy Girl), Jung Woo-sung(The Good, The Bad and The Weird) and Lee Sung-jae(Public Enemy).

Set in Amsterdam, Daisy is the story of a love triangle. Hye-young(Gianna Jun) is a street artist, painting portraits of people for money. She meets Jeong-woo(Lee Sung-jae) one afternoon when he asks her to draw his portrait. Jeong-woo is secretly chasing Asian criminals and uses this time to scope the area in a busy town centre. The other man is Park Yi(Jung Woo-sung) who is a hitman that has secretly loved Jeong-woo for years. Both men hide their true identity from Hye-young until their paths cross and everything starts to unravel.

Daisy is a romance melodrama thriller... With a hint of action. It really is genre busting with many different layers. If you like your Korean melodramas and your like your Korean Thrillers and Action films, then why not combine them? Also, it looks very sleek with stunning cinematography and editing. But, it is Andrew Lau, so you expect that!

Jun Ji-hyun steals the show, but she really is a wonderful actress. After My Sassy Girl, I think she will always be my favourite Korean actress, she is extremely talented and captivating in all of her roles.

There are 2 different versions. The 2 hour long directors cut or the faster paced 1 hour 40 mins original version. Both versions differ and have a slightly different ending. I think the 1 hour 40 mins version flows better, but they both have their positive points!
