Romantic Island (Hangul로맨틱 아일랜드; RRRomaentik Aillaendeu) is a 2008 South Korean romantic comedy film set in Boracay, Philippines.


Six Koreans from Seoul travel separately to the Philippines: a middle-aged couple on their first trip overseas with the terminally ill husband plotting to kill himself while on holiday so his unsuspecting wife can claim an insurance payment; a convenience store clerk who meets a runaway pop star; and a happy-go-lucky office worker who gets hired as a tour guide by a rich businessman who came to pay his respects to his estranged dead father.
