Synopsis

Dalam perjalanannya ke sebuah pertunjukan di Seoul, Hana bertemu dengan teman lamanya, Cheolha. Hana merasa bimbang. Ia mengikuti temannya, tetapi ketika ia akhirnya berhasil menjajari Cheolha, ia tidak bisa mengatakan perasaannya dan malah berbalik pergi. Penggambaran gejolak batin yang mungkin remeh ini merupakan detail yang penting dalam film ini.

On her way to a performance in Seoul, Hana runs into an old friend, Cheolha. Hana feels herself wavering. She follows him, but when she finally catches up with him, she cannot tell him about her feelings and turns back. The belittle portrayal of inner turmoil is a notable detail in this piece.
