Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

The Handmaiden (2016)

Lady Hideko: Men are disgusting. 
Why do you always think of those things?
Count Fujiwara: You're asking me about how I think? 
You think that all I'm interested in is your body? Is that so? 
You definitely have been reading too many of those erotic
writings! If there's anything I do want from you it's not
your eyes, hands, or ass, but your money. You having the first
is money. Talking and teasing an aristocrat like you is so fun!

A happy 43rd birthday to South Korean actor Jung-woo Ha, who played the sexy but awful Count in Park Chan-wook's glorious lesbian romance caper The Handmaiden. I know the Count is awful but Ha looks so good in those period costumes, you guys. I can't help myself. At least I'm not lusting after the Uncle, for god's sake. Anyway...

... I haven't seen any of his movies since The Handmaiden came out in 2016 but pre-2016 movies of his I have seen and recommend: The Yellow Sea and The Chaser, both wildly compelling action flicks from The Wailing director Hong-jin Na (also see The Wailing, a wild horror flickwhile you're at it). See more of Jung-woo Ha at this link!
