Very Ordinary Couple is a South Korean romantic comedy-drama film directed by Roh Deok, which premiered in 2013. The movie stars Lee Min-ki and Kim Min-hee in the lead roles, with supporting cast members including Moo-Seong Choi and Ra Mi-ran. The film revolves around the relationship of Lee Dong-hee (Lee Min-ki) and Jang Young (Kim Min-hee), who meet at work and become a couple. However, after three years, their relationship starts to sour as they struggle with communication issues and infidelity. The movie goes back and forth between the present and the past, showing how the couple met and their progression through the stages of their relationship.

Lee Min-ki portrays the character of Lee Dong-hee, who is a seasoned employee in a PR company. He is well-liked by everyone in the office due to his friendly personality and sense of humor. At the beginning of the movie, he seems happy with his partner Jang Young but soon realizes that he has lost interest in her. Lee Min-ki perfectly portrays the character's emotions as he tries to balance his work life, his relationship, and his personal desires.

Kim Min-hee, on the other hand, plays the role of Jang Young, who is also seen as one of the most talented employees in the company. She is independent and strong-willed, but as the relationship with Lee Dong-hee becomes increasingly strained, she starts to become more and more insecure. Kim Min-hee's performance is natural and brings the character to life, especially during the later stages of the movie where her emotions are running high.

Another character that stands out in the movie is the boss at the PR company, played by Moo-Seong Choi. His character provides comic relief while also being instrumental in furthering the plot of the movie. In addition, Ra Mi-ran's character also adds some humor to the plot as Jang Young's friend and co-worker, who tries to give Jang Young advice on how to fix her relationship with Lee Dong-hee.

The movie's plot is cleverly structured, with flashback scenes interwoven throughout the story. This technique allows the audience to understand the characters' motivations and how their actions in the past impact their current situation. The movie's pacing is slow at first, but it gradually builds up towards the climax, keeping audiences engaged and invested in the story.

The movie's soundtrack is also a standout feature, with several tracks that perfectly match the mood and tone of the various scenes throughout the film. The songs are emotional and add depth to the character's emotional journey.

Overall, Very Ordinary Couple is a well-crafted romantic-comedy-drama that explores the intricacies of relationships and how they can change over time. Lee Min-ki and Kim Min-hee give powerful performances as the leading couple, with excellent supporting performances from the rest of the cast. The movie's plot structure keeps the audience guessing and invested throughout, making it a worthwhile watch for fans of the genre.
