Kang's character is So-hyeon, Dae-ho's childhood friend and psychiatrist considered as the nation's top authority in the field of researching lucid dreaming. As some critics have pointed out, she appears to exist in the film only to provide information on what is lucid dreaming and what side effects it can bring.
She does not hesitate as a doctor before deciding to accept Dae-ho's request to use the psychiatric methods for purposes other than treatment. The scenes might have been essential from her viewpoint, but I thought cutting them out was the right decision because they could have distracted viewers' attention from the film's main plot and Dae-ho's struggle to find his son," she said.

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Rules of Dating"
That's a strange feeling to have given that the film is only ten years old, but for a sense of perspective, I'm twenty-eight. I was taught fairly consistently throughout my life that rape and sexual harassment were bad things. What's more, it was during my early twenties that sadist comedies became popular. So I'm not completely sure how to process a movie that seems to expect its viewer to emphathize with and laugh at the antics of an obvious sex offender.
The political elements of " Rules of Dating " are honestly really hard to ignore. Even though Yoo-rim's boyfriend and Hong's girlfriend don't really factor as characters, we're frequently reminded of their existence. I was never completely sure whether the movie is actually pro-adultery, or whether director Han Jae-rim simply considers it unjust that some people face negative social consequences upon committing adultery.
