Based on the 1987 American movie Overboard, Couple of Fantasy is about Anna Jo, who is a rude, feisty, and audacious American-bred heiress who can never be satisfied. She returns to Korea only to continue being a controlling wife to her already cowardly husband, Billy Park. When her yacht gets stuck for repairs, she hires local handyman Jang Chul Soo to fix her shower, but when they have a heated spat over her dissatisfaction and non payment, she pushes him overboard and dunks his tools into the ocean right along with him. Later, after a quarrel with Billy that threatens to end their marriage, she herself gets drunkenly pitched overboard and falls victim to a bad case of amnesia.
Runtime: 70 minutes

Double Fantasy is a 1980 album released by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. It is the seventh and final studio album released by Lennon during his lifetime. Although the album was initially poorly received, Lennon was murdered three weeks after its release, whereupon it became a worldwide commercial success and went on to win the 1981 Album of the Year award at the 24th Annual Grammy Awards.

Initial critical reaction to the album was largely negative. However, three weeks after the album's release, Lennon was murdered and several negative reviews by prominent critics were withheld from publication, including those by Stephen Holden of The New York Times, Tom Carson of Rolling Stone, and Geoffrey Stokes of The Village Voice. The negative reviews focused on the album's idealisation of Lennon and Ono's marriage. Stokes found the concept and theme to be “basically misogynist”, and Kit Rachlis of the Boston Phoenix admitted to being “annoyed” by Lennon and Ono's assumption “that lots of people care deeply” about them. Charles Shaar Murray, of New Musical Express, wrote that the couple's domestic bliss “sounds like a great life, but unfortunately it makes a lousy record,” adding that he wished Lennon had “kept his big happy trap shut until he has something to say that was even vaguely relevant to those of us not married to Yoko Ono.” Double Fantasy finished 37th in The Village Voice's 1980 Pazz & Jop, an annual poll of prominent music critics. Robert Christgau, the poll's creator, ranked it 7th on his own list of the year's best albums. Although he was put off by its simplistic lyrics and music upon first listen, Christgau said that the music works a “minor miracle” with “rich, precise” song form and a “command of readymades” to put “the anonymous usages of studio rock to striking artistic purpose.” He felt that the use of alternating Ono's improved vocals with Lennon's “makes the union come alive” better than his outspoken, straightforward lyrics, and concluded that the album is not great, but “memorable and gratifying” as rare, “connubial rock and roll”. In 1982, Douglas, Lennon and Ono won the 1981 Album of the Year for Double Fantasy at the 24th Annual Grammy Awards. In 1989 the album was ranked number 29 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s.
