The film was interesting enough with its story as well as a hypothetical question for anyone to think about. Two Face of My Girlfriend is a korean film wherein college student Gu-chang has never kissed a girl before and he blames it all on his dependency on his sister and lack of any disposable income. One day, he picks up a wallet at a dining hall and meets its owner, a charming young girl. He falls in love with her instantly and the two form a relationship. But as soon as everything seems rosy, he discovers another side of this perfect girl, a violent and wild side of her. He discovers she suffers from multiple personality disorder and realizes that the girl he fell in love with is just one of her fabricated personalities. - filmasia.blogspot.com If you do get to watch it, I hope you'll find it interesting too~! Well, that's the film and the title of the discussion asking, what if you fell inlove with someone's fabricated personality? I mean, its easier said than done to forget about that fabricated personality that you got to know.

well, i guess it's easier to forget the person with a fabricated personality you fell in love with. but it sure would make me really, really mad. i don't know whether to be mad at him for the dception or mad at me for not figuring it out right there and then.

Actually, it was just later on in the film when the personality whom the guy fell inlove with realized that she was just a fabrication, no deception intended. I guess if deception was really inteded, anyone would definitely be mad.. how would you figure something before it was too late though..

it's only in the movies that it becomes too late. anyway, in real life if they are married already then i guess it's also too late. :)

Well, its most likely that getting to know part would eventually have one knowing if their partners have something odd working around with them by asking folks and friends, just to know more about the person that one could be interested in.. Marriage sounds like, 'no turning back..'

Hey ratyz!^^ I didn't know you like Korean movies! I've watched that film too before! I totally laughed over it! It was such a nice movie and kinda sad too. Koreans are really good with their romantic comedy movies. Hey, did you watch 200 Pounds Beauty before? That one is nice too. And that's an understatement.^^ Hmmm.. if I fell in love with someone's fabricated personality, I think I would have felt betrayed. Being lied to is not really a good thing. We all feel bad when someone lies to us. And fabricating a different personality is more than lying. I'd be totally angry over the guy and I wouldn't be sure if I can love him after that. This is a coincidence because I have just watched an episode of a J-drama that I'm watching. A guy pretended to be rich and going to an elite school just to impress a girl. He pretended to be cool and all that so the girl will fall in love with him. And she did. But the guy couldn't keep lying to the family of the girl so he confessed and that flared up the girl. She immediately broke up with the guy. Turns out he was poor and he only works part-time in a noodle house. But he kept on loving the girl and she was starting to like him. Maybe if that was the case, if that would happen to me, I'd be able to like the guy too if his true personality is nice.^^

I guess I made a wrong choice of word there. In the movie I mentioned, the girl's personalities were not meant to fool anyone but, simply to cope with that traumatic experience she had before meeting with the guy in the movie. Yeah, if it was really just an impersonation, anyone would really be upset at first but, even those who did the impersonation would sometimes end up liking the person whom they were trying to impress or perhaps have as their victim. Depending on the situation, the 'victim' would either abandon the person who confesses his/her crime or has grown too much fondness with the 'criminal' that after their initial reaction of anger and hate from such betrayal, accept their apology and be with them with that new founded trust. With the narration that you have provided, everything just turns out to be situational and dependent on those individuals involved in the matter. In my case, if the girl was really nice and all the charade was just there to catch my attention, I guess I would be impressed that she gave such an effort just to catch my attention. Perhaps, if she remained how she was before, I wouldn't have noticed her at all...?

Yeah, you used the wrong word.^^ Anyway, you have a point. Exerting a lot of effort is really admirable and impressive. But I think it depends on the effort. Like this guy in the drama I was talking about, he went as far as borrowing a large amount of money from loan sharks just to impress the girl. He did it while knowing he couldn't pay for it even if he worked double time in that noodle house. I think that's a little s+upid and not impressive.^^

Well, as Lord Henry Wotton once said, "When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance." Yeah, when one is really in love, one tends to do even the most impressive or illgical actions.

Answering your main question, It would depend on the situation. Generally, I would say that I wouldnt mind it. If the "fabricated personality" is supposed to feel the same way about me, if it made me happy, then why not, right? Of course as long as I had an idea right from the start that it's bound to end sooner or later. That there wasn't any false hope that there's a chance for "forever". At least for a short amount of time, I was the happiest person on the planet. Also, there's the stipulation that I would never find out if ever there was a deception. With that I would wish for the "illusion" to end on a good note. However, if it was unrequited, well, people cannot go back and forget about it once they have "fallen in love", but if they're just about to fall, or just fell off the "edge" then I think they can try to prevent themselves from falling off the metaphoric cliff or grab on to a "branch" before they hit the bottom, most especially when they know that no one's going to catch them. As for the situation in the movie you mentioned, if I really feel true love for one of the personalities, then Id just have to accept the others. It might be challenging and definitely an interesting setup between me, the one I fell in love with, and the other personalities existing in the same body. We would all have to work for it if it's going to continue. its easier said than done to forget about that fabricated personality that you got to know ~agreed, but why try to forget if there could be a future for the both of you? Havent yet seen the movie, but if it ended on a sad note, well, that's just life. It should really be forget the feeling, and not the person you had those feelings for. Over time, people do move on. That's just what I think anyway and Ill try to watch the film one of these days.

You really sound aloof on your first statement there.. I agree, it would really depend on the situation on how we would cope with what is happening. Some people would do exactly what they would say in this kind of predicament but, may very well veer from it when they are actually in the said situation. Preventing themselves from falling would rather be a hard feat to do, unless all the while, they were really cautious and not really making themselves fall for the person from the very beginning. Emotions are rather innately tricky if it gets the best of us so, being focused and distinguishing what we think from what we feel doesn't sound romantic at all (-_-") Yes, we compromise for things to work out. Even couples who have no split personalities still encounter ripples in their relationship, what more with the kind of relationship in the movie? Of course, the girl went back to 'normal' in the movie so that saves it from the complicated conclusion of possibilities..

This discussion reminded me of the Sydney Sheldon book i read a few years ago... i forgot the title... but it was about a woman who had three personalities... and this was because of the trauma she endured as a child... very nice story... worthy to be made into a movie... I don't fall in love that easily... so i don't think this will ever happen to me in a million years... aside for that... i am already married... i think i will try to look for this korean movie... sounds very interesting... and i would love to know how it ended...

That's interesting.. perhaps there is any chance that the book you mentioned and the film where I got to ask this question be related somehow..? well, if you want, you can go to koreanmovie.com and look for the title

Hello ratyz5! The movie is really interesting. I would love to watch that movie. Going back to your question, it would really be hard for me to decide. I mean, if it's hard to be with the normal person, how much more with the kind of person with multiple personality especially if it has wild and violent side. It would mean danger. I don't want it to happen to me and I think better let the person be medicated.

Yes indeed~! It would be really difficult to handle someone who has multiple personalities but, that doesn't mean that its impossible. The dilema in the film was that he just realized the girl's situation after he had already grown feelings for this personality that was actually just 'fabricated.' Which should he choose? Of course the one that he has feelings for as he recognize that personality as the 'real' one. If you want to watch the film, just go to koreanmovie.com and you can search for other titles that might also catch your interest

Yep. that would be a hard thing for someone to do. I would hate to get to know someone and then find out later, that it was not their true personality that I first adored.

Yeah, one would even insist that the personality that they got to know is the real one and not the other authentic personality that others really do know from way before.. such a dilema.. (_

that movie sounds interesting to me. well, i don't know. if ever i fell in love with a fabricated relationship, that will mean sacrifice. i have to learn to accept his personality problems. but i hope i will not meet the violent one. maybe, helping him get medical and psychological help is my resort.

Its not that the relationship was fabricated from the start. It just so happened that the personality that the guy in the movie came to know was actually not the genuine personality. Then again, even if the personality that he got to know wasn't the genuine one, it still had its uniqueness and independence that made it stand on its own. So there's that tinge of uncertainty since, the one he got to know seems more authentic than the original one that he didn't get to know at all. I hope you get to watch it. A friend of mine recommended it to me and you can also view it and other korean movies in koreanmovie.com (^_^ )
