Love Me Not (Hangul: 사랑따윈 필요없어; RR: Sarang ddawin piryo eopseo; literally "Love and Such Is Not Necessary") is a 2006 South Korean romance film directed by Lee Cheol-ha and starring Moon Geun-young and Kim Joo-hyuk.

It is based on the 2002 TBS Japanese drama I Don't Need Love, Summer (愛なんていらねえよ、夏 Ai Nante Irane Yo, Natsu?), starring Ryōko Hirosue. The 2013 South Korean television series That Winter, The Wind Blows is also based on the same storyline.

Plot[edit]

Julian (Kim Joohyuk) has lived off with the money he lures from his rich female customers. But now he faces usurious debts from a hasty expansion of his business, and he will be killed unless he clears the debt in one month. The only way to save himself is to pretend to be the long-lost brother of an heiress and kill her to get her huge fortune. Min (Moon Geun-young), the blind heiress, cold-hearted like Julian, slowly opens herself to him, and he, too, falls for her. But Julian has to pay his creditor and what makes it worse for him is that the illness that took Min’s eyesight relapsed, threatening her life. This story takes a terrible turn when Julian becomes guilty, and pained with guilt. The tearjerker moments of the ironic betrayal and innocent love will make your heart turn.

The film had 548,998 admissions and earned US$2,438,783.[1][2]
