Storyline

Bongwan, who runs a small publishing house in Seoul, wakes up early, very early this morning. Why is that so? To his wife who asks him for an explanation, Bongwan answers only elusively. He then sets off for work and while walking through the dark streets, he thinks of the woman who left him a month before. Later on, at the office, he meets Areum, his new secretary, a pretty young woman who takes on her first day of work. Meanwhile, at home, Bongwan's wife discovers a love poem written by him. She sees red and rushes like a fury into the publishing office. Mistaking poor Areum for her husband's mistress, she physically attacks her. Written by Guy Bellinger

I have to say that the dierector is a man who knows himself and other menfolk well. The essence of man is telling lies and forgeting and all the time. I will not repeat story. I just try to explain why this movie is so stunning. On the face of it ,the story is uneventful.But it has a power. When the publsher is burning to cry.Do you know why he crys? In general ,his life is mess .First, he feels guilty to the wowan who begins her first day at work .She is innocent because she does not do anything.His lover ask him what happen constantly.It's a really bad thing .And he doesn't want to tell her .And for publsher , he is in dilemma.Maybe an hour ago,he tried his best to ask her not to leave .But right now ,because of his lover,he must tell her to leave.In asia,it makes people feel highly embarrassed . And he tries to save his face,say"i understand you "

but the girl doesn't take it .She says "no ,you don't understand ."The girl is a little angry .The publisher has a feeling of powernessless.He life is out of his control and he is broken down.

It's Brilliant idea to put this man in this condition .He is the representative of men.We can see ourselves from him .That's the point of the movie.
