My Scary Girl (2006)
A South Korean crime romance directed by Son Jae-gon.
In introverted English teacher helps a moving man to deliver a refrigerator. While the moving man is in the bathroom, the young, female tenant chases the teacher out of her apartment. He sees her on other occasions until a friend yells out a request for a date and pushes him from a departing elevator. They have a few dates as the woman tries to cover up the fact that she has killed someone. Seeing suspicious behavior, the teacher hires an investigator to find out more.
If this was an American film, it would be filled to the brim with sex jokes and innuendo. But it's not. Koreans seem to have better taste than that. I liked the plot and characters, but it wasn't anything super-special. I'm rating it adequate.
