¡SPOILER ALERT!

Hi! When I saw Love Set for the first time, I felt some kind of sexual tension during the short. And after discussing with some people we came to the conclusion that maybe the Tennis match between the two characters is not just that, it's a kind of fight between lovers. That is, the characters of Bae Doona and IU were in an intimate relationship and now the IU character does not want Doona to marry with her father. There are many clues during the short (IU eating plums, the looks of Bae Doona, even the sounds during the game, the gesture of Doona when she gives the ball to IU). It's just a theory, but after discussing it and seeing Love Set once again everything makes sense.

 

I actually felt the same thing! At first, I thought that IU was jealous when she watched her 'lover' have a tennis match with another woman (the sound they produce while playing is actually meant for another thing lol). But then she called him dad and I was like "what?". Then the women starts to play and produce the same sound hmm (not to mention the scene of flying skirt and sweaty body and everything kinda sexual), my "what?" became louder haha. The thought of the two girls are the real lovers didn't occur to me so thanks for the insight! I'm going to rewatch love set again:D

Enjoy it! After reading that theory and seeing the film again I was really amazed by the way in which the director gives us a story without the need for many dialogues. Love Set became my favorite of the four shorts. ;)
