Au-jin is a mother of two children and wife to a husband in deep financial difficulties. To augment her income, she works for a telephone sex-chat service. After a chance meeting with Madam Kim, she is offered a job in an all-night bar acting as a companion for lonely men. She is uncomfortable as the level of services she must provide increases, until one day she is introduced to a customer who appears to treat her affectionately and lovingly. Could he be the one for her, the one to take her away from all this? Written by
A woman in a tough financial situation with a deadbeat husband and two children is trying to do the best she can to get by in life. Due to various situations, she ends up working as a call girl for karaoke bars (for those that know Asia, sort of a Snack Bar where the women are requested as opposed to being the ones that run and work at the place).
This movie covers the period of time when from before, to a little while after, she moves into this new line of work. There was no glorification, romanticizing, or exaggeration of her story, yet it was very engrossing. I'm very glad I watched this, for it gave me an idea as to what someone else's life may very well be like.
