: It is Areum's first day of work at a small publisher. Her boss Bongwan loved and recently broke up with the woman who previously worked there. Today too, the married Bongwan leaves home in the dark morning and sets off to work. The memories of the woman who left weigh down on him. That day Bongwan's wife finds a love note, bursts into the office, and mistakes Areum for the woman who left.

Hong Sang-soo
Hong Sangsoo made the astounding debut with his first feature film THE DAY A PIG FELL INTO THE WELL in 1996. Since then, through the 20 films that he wrote and directed, Hong has consistently enjoyed using a complex and highly ordered architecture under a seemingly random surface created by spontaneous circumstances in depicting the characters in his films. Renowned for his unique cinematographic language and unprec-edented esthetics in filmmaking, Hong Sangsoo is considered as one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema.
