Screenplay by , , , ,


113min | Release date in South Korea :

Hyosup is a second class writer whose sole comfort is to write and to love Bokyung, a married woman. Bokyung, a housewife in her 30s, believes she can realize her previous aspirations and tries to escape from her life with Hyosup. Dongwoo is Bokyung's husband, a cowardly and ordinary businessman who always suspects his wife's unfaithfulness. Minjae is a ticket seller at a cinema, dreaming of becoming a writer's wife. Hypocrisy, worldly desires, and complex relations of these four characters either lead viewers into a world of fantasy or make them shudder with disgust.
