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.Written by

A slow to develope but refreshing and heart warming story
Albeit a small, simple and very linear story that avoids dramatic gestures for the sake of simple everyday depiction of life it remains a refreshing one and beautiful at that. The movie starts with a young woman who tracks a guy from her past to whom she loaned some money. We accompany them for the duration and get to know them better and their relationship. The film stands thanks to solid performances of its lead actors. Jo Byeong-woon does a great outgoing happy-go-lucky kind of guy (rarely is this depicted in film in men I find) and Kim Hee-su a shy, pessimistic introvert. Together and through the rest of the cast we get a nice temporal arc both situational and inter-personal that by the end of the film may leave you both heart warmed and introspective. Very slow but worth it if you appreciate humanistic and less formulaic films.
