Is this the one from Chang-dong Lee?
It is. I saw it yesterday and, even though it doesn't live up to the hype, I really liked it. The dance sequence is one of my favorite things I saw all year.
I have never seen any of Lee's other films, but I'm definitely going to make work of that.

Yeah, the trailer didn't entirely convince me either, but I liked his other movies so much I'm still excited.
Other movies of him I'd recommend are The Broken Circle Breakdown (2012), Steve + Sky (2004) and De Helaasheid der Dingen/The Misfortunates (2009). Especially that last one is a favorite of mine, a deliciously dark dramedy.
You might find TBCB to be "too much" as well, but I think it's really effective. I was really choked up at the end. Very raw.
S+S is very much a "first-time-feature" but it shows a lot of promise. A nice little romantic comedy/drama.
I don't know if his movies are easy to find/stream in the US/Canada...
