This movie will not be for everyone. It is a very thorough display of a more than uncomfortable situation though. And it's not only an issue South Korea is having trouble with. Unemployment or finding work in general (especially in a field you learned to work for) is higher right now than it should be.
Too many people trying/applying for the same thing. And the movie has a great (underplaying) lead actor. You will be seeing where this is going even without me telling you or you reading about it. But the journey is still worth your time, if you like your drama to feel as close to real life as possible. It's shot very intimate and you will feel what our "hero" goes through. Balancing multiple things and making the right decision isn't easy ...
