"The First Lap" (2017)
Directed by Kim Dae-hwan
The first step of starting a family, the first step of facing the family you have run away so far.
Soo-hyeon, a teacher at a private art institute and Ji-yeong, a contract worker at a small network enterprise have been living together for 6 years. To his surprise, Soo-hyeon finds out that Ji-yeong is late on her period.
One evening, the couple heads to the new home of Ji-yeong's parents in Incheon. The housewarming party dissolves in ill humor when Ji-yeong's mother strongly urges the couple to get married. At the end of a long day, the couple tries to sleep.
As Soo-hyeon decides to reunite with his family he had been avoiding for some time, the couple sets off for Samcheok at the far end of the east coast.
