    • Synopsis
    • Not rich, nor famous, KU Kyung-nam is stuck with the label of an ‘art-house film director’. When he attends the festival in a small town as a jury, he bumps into an old friend BU, who has settled in the town. Over drinks KU is dragged to BU’s house and meets his wife who claims to know all about his films. The next day after a long night of heavy drinking, KU returns his hotel and find a message from BU which says ‘never to come near us again’. But he can’t remember what happened last night.
      Soon after that, KU goes to Jeju Island to give a lecture. There he meets a famous admired painter who was KU’s college senior and finds his new wife is KU’s love in his twenties. When she gave him a note secretly, he is quiet confused. The next day on his way to go airport, KU changes his mind and heads to the painter’s house to meet her.
