김씨 표류기 (Kim-ssi-pyo-ryoo-gi)

Directed by Lee Hae-joon (이해준)

Screenplay by


116min | Release date in South Korea :

A man named KIM jumps into the dark, quiet waters of the Han River. He wakes up and finds himself lying on strange ground, covered with sand. For a second, he thinks he is in heaven, but soon recognizes that he simply drifted to a nameless island in the river. In one of the riverside apartment buildings, there’s a girl who hasn’t ventured out of her room for years. With her dishevelled hair and in the same old clothes she’s worn for years, she looks just like a castaway. Then one day, she catches sight of a man living alone on an island through her binoculars. Day after day, his lonely but seemingly contented life triggers her curiosity and compels her to step out of her room after so many years. KIM’s extraordinary life becomes the inspiration for change in this girl’s lonely, detached life.

    2013/03/15, Source,
    The protagonist. "Castaway on the Moon" is a brilliant new take on the 'castaway' theme. Imagine your life is in the dumps. I don't mean that you broke a nail or your dog ran away; I mean you lost all of your money, you're in foreclosure, and everything else in your life is simply going all down the tube. Some people step up and deal with it vis-à-vis, others jump off bridges to put a quick end to the suffering,...More
