A writer meets an attractive woman and falls in love on first sight. Will there love last? Goo Joo-wol is a writer and a part-time as a bartender. He's currently working on his second novel, but stuck with a bout of writer's block. Joo-Wol then accompanies the president of his publishing company to Berlin on a business trip as a translator. On his last day in Berlin, Joo-Wol attends a party for movie industry insiders. Joo-Wol, bored with the party, steps outside to smoke a cigarette. A woman named Hee-Jin then walks next to him and smokes a cigarette. Joo-Wol falls in love on first sight. Back in Seoul. Hee-Jin finds a letter and a flower basket awaiting for her on her desk. Hee-Jin reads the letter from Joo-Wol and finds it funny. Meanwhile, Joo-Wol waits and waits for her phone call. Finally, Joo-Wol gets the phone call from Hee-Jin. The soon-to-be couple will meet for the second time.
Many male audiences who saw 500 Days of Summer must have felt that Summer, who was the dominant figure in the relationship, as a cold-hearted woman. Love Fiction is the opposite, a romantic comedy sticking strictly to the man's view of the relationship. An unknown novelist Ju-wol (Ha Jeong-woo) falls in love at first sight with Hee-jin (Kong Hyo-jin) who works at a film importing company when the two meet at a book expo. After a series of dates, they become lovers. Yet unlike Hee-jin, who is looking for a down-to- earth relationship, Ju-wol is unhappy with
everything Hee-jin does and the two begin to drift apart. The film is seen only from Ju-wol’s perspective, regarding the course of how a couple’s relationship begins and ends. This film was uniquely constructed by adding the fantasy where complex inner side of Ju-wol is displayed through conversation shared with an imaginary character ' M '. It is Jeon Gye-soo's third film following his musical film "The Ghost Theater" and the realistic love story in the style of director HONG Sang-soo with "Lost and Found - 2010". Encounter of Ha Jeong-woo from "The Yellow Sea" and "The Chaser", with Kong Hyo-jin, who's enjoying her big popularity from her TV romantic character will surely be interesting enough.
