A story about a middle-class, middle-aged woman who falls in love with the author of the bestselling novel, Blue Lips, this film, like the 50s melodrama, A Lady of Freedom, depicts a woman’s mid-life crisis. Protagonist Sun-Ah shifts from being her husband’s private property to an exploding bomb resisting his oppression. If the husband in A Lady of Freedom is an intellectual who follows the values of the mind, the husband in this film is a materialist who represents the social values of the late 60s. Sun-Ah is reunited with the author of Blue Lips who had been attracted to her in their youth, and who is now the superior of her sister, Min-Ah. The two become lovers, and the memories of first love begin to outweigh Sun-Ah’s pedantic married life. Although these memories never blossom into anything substantial, they are enough to lead Sun-Ah chopping off her hair with scissors taken from the strong grasp of her husband’s hands, the film challenges the limits of melodrama. With allusions to cartoons, pop music, and bestselling novels of the time, this film presents itself as a cultural text of 60s popular culture. (Nam In-Young)
