In the gloomy 80s, Sang-ho is wanted by the authorities for his participation in the student movement. Parting with his colleagues, Sang-ho happens to end up in a town on the outskirts, a town he has no connection to. The place where he is in hiding is the second floor of a worn down wooden house. Spending his time idly in the room, one day, Sang-ho discovers a hole looking into the room downstairs by chance. Casually looking through the hole, Sang-ho exhales. At first, Sang-ho tries to avoid looking, out of guilt. However, before he knows it, he is drawn to the hole. Every gesture she makes is very captivating and seductive. He watches her body, feels her, and takes her into his heart. She lives a confined life, like Sang-ho. Her husband locks the door from the outside as he goes to work. Then one day, Sang-ho sees Tae-yeol drop his keys on his way out.

User Reviews

Summertime IS a rip off of Scorpio Nights!

Yojimbo999 is the one that "doesn't know what he's talking about!" He obvious has never seen Scorpio Nights! From the moment that Summertime came on, I noticed it! The young peeping tom dude is living directly above the married couple with the sexy wife, and the abusive security guard husband. The peeping tom pervert that lives upstairs watches them nightly through a hole in the floor, and learns of the husband's routine: He comes home, sits down at table, which always has his dinner automatically spread out for him, all nice and neat. The hot wife is fast asleep (supposedly) on the bed. When the husband finishes eating, he goes behind the mosquito net, and has sex with his woman. If I recall correctly, she doesn't even open her eyes, but just lets her husband get off, then rolls over and goes back to sleep. Same precise routine, night after night, after night. Meanwhile, outside, there are a bunch of Filipino unemployed losers drinking and singing (this is every night also). One night, the peeper comes downstairs early, moves the dishes around the table like he's eating, then does the nasty with the security guard husband's wife. The only thing that I can't recall about Scorpio Nights exactly, was was it the "first" time, or the "second" time that the peeping tom screwed her, that she revealed to him that she was only "pretending" to be asleep and unawares, but realized the entire time that she was aware that it wasn't her husband doing her, but the handsome young peeping tom from upstairs! The wife, and the young peeping tom become lovers. Now, when I'm watching the Korean remake, "Summertime," I noticed that the ENTIRE film is one big rip off of Scorpio Nights: Same upstairs peeper, same sex routines, same seduction method by the peeping tom, same unemployed losers drinking and singing outside (this time they're Koreans), and same revenge by the cuckold husband! SOMEONE in Korea, who was involved in the making of this film ("Summertime"), most certainly deserves to be sued for copyright infringement! Anyone doubting this (this includes you, Yojimbo999), can log on to the official website of Regal Films, which I believe is www.regalfilms.com, and if it isn't, just do a web search for "Regal Films" (they made Scorpio Nights), and order a copy of Scorpio Nights on DVD (don't order Scorpio Nights 2, which is a separate film), and watch the Filipino original, Scorpio Nights first, then watch that Korean rip off, Summertime, next, back-to-back. There is no refuting this! Yojimbo999 is either in denial, or he's a liar!
