The Pure Love or Report of Sincere Love (순애보 / 純愛譜 - Sun-aebo) is a 1957 film directed by Han Hyung-mo.[1] It was one of three South Korean films to sell more than 100,000 tickets in Seoul during its year of release.[2]


A painter living on a beach rescues a drowning woman. Though the woman falls in love with him, he does not return her feelings. He meets an old neighborhood friend, they fall in love, and plan to be married. A jealous man kills the woman who had been rescued, and frames the painter for the act. When he refuses to defend himself, the murderer confesses.[1]
