Between Love and Hate (also known as The Unbearable Lightness of Dating) is a 2006 South Korean film starring Kim Seung-woo and Jang Jin-young, and is the directorial debut of screenwriter Kim Hae-gon. Jang's performance won her Best Actress at the 2006 Korean Film Awards.[2] This would be Jang Jin-young's final film before her death almost 3 years later.


Young-woon works in his mother's restaurant, and is more interested in having a good time with his friends than settling down with his fiancée. He allows himself to be seduced by bargirl Yeon-ah, and the two embark on a tumultuous love-hate relationship. But when Young-woon's mother finds out about the affair and pushes him into marrying his fiancée, he is forced into choosing between the two women.
