    • Synopsis
    • Choi Hyeon, a professor Beijing University, learns of the sudden death of his friend and hurries to Daegu, South Korea. At the funeral, he meets his old friend, Chun-won, and is reminded of their trip to the historic city of Gyeongju seven years ago. Preoccupied by a strange feeling, Choi Hyeon asks Chun-won if he remembers an obscene ‘Chunhwa’ painting which they saw in a teahouse in Gyeongju, but Chun-won cannot recall anything of their trip. To follow his own memory Choi Hyeon decides to visit Gyeongju by himself. But that the obscene painting is missing. He meets an attractive lady, Gong Yun-hui, the owner of the teahouse, asks her where the painting is now and is told that she covered it with wallpaper because of people’s offensive jokes. Next day he revisits the teahouse and Yun-hui feels wary, but at the same time curious about him. Now begins a new story between them.
