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.
I am almost certain it was based from "Scorpio Nights(1985)" by Peque Gallaga
It is but a mere copy-cat, a cheap imitation of the original storyline directed by Peque Gallaga with the writing prowess of Rosauro Dela Cruz. Follow the link below. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117568/) I don't think it really portrayed relevance to the so-called "allegory to the situation in South Korea during the '70s and '80s". It was merely implied that one of the characters was a democratic rights protester/student, and there were no credible circumstances where he in fact was really what the director made us believe. The student, the wife, and the husband (who incidentally was also a security guard, go figure...), including the depiction of the prevailing situation of the community up to the sequences of events. Can anyone explain the detailed resemblance of this movie to Gallaga's "Scorpio Nights"? By the way, this movie was showed on screen 16 years after "Scorpio Nights".
