Jobless, single and in her early thirties, Hee-soo is miserable. Desperate, she sets out to find her ex-boyfriend, Byoung-woon, who owes her $3,500. Rather inconveniently, it turns out that Byoung-woon is also penniless, but he cheerfully claims he can get the money from a series of girlfriends. Suspicious, Hee-soo decides to trail Byoung-woon as he makes the rounds of his varied lady chums, just in case he tries to deceive her. Thus the pair embark on a strange, nostalgic journey together.

Nothing groundbreaking, just Yoon-ki Lee doing his thing
This film belongs to Jung-woo Ha. He is engaging and funny, one of those guys who knows how to spin even the worst of interactions into something that makes him seem likable. Vulnerable and in the dog-house, so to speak, he's still in charge of things as he sets out to borrow money from a series of old girlfriends in order to repay another old lover who follows him around while he does it. Seen in isolation, his charms don't add up, but the film manages to paint a convincing portrait of a guy you just can't say no to.
Do-yeon Jeon, in heavy eye make-up, pretty much pouts her way through this Yoon-ki Lee film--which means it's low-key, slice of life, simple story stuff. It would be a let down with lesser actors. Don't expect high drama or excitement.
