When his boss Dae-Jung goes missing, the company sends young Woo-zoo to Osaka to finish Dae-Jung's work. On the last day before returning home, Woo-zoo comes across someone looking like his missing boss and chases him all the way to a small bar, Pier 34. Listening to music there, Woo-zoo falls asleep and misses his flight back to Korea. When he wakes up he decides to quit his job and stay at the bar till he finds Dae-Jung. He soon meets a young girl and, since he plays the guitar, helps her prepare to perform. He remembers the joy of music and a dream long forgotten. A metaphorical story about accepting loss, feeling lost and seeking a path in life.Written by

This is a quiet, sweet, ambling movie that has many things to say and doesn't mind taking its time to say them. It is one of those Korean experience movies that takes you on a journey rather than laying out a story with a concrete beginning middle and end. I'm sure many would quantify this a "boring" but if you are in the right frame of mind, it is a real treat. What sets it apart from others that make movies like this (Sang-soo Hong and Jung-bum Park spring to mind) is that this was directed by two cinematographers and every shot is framed, blocked and shot beautifully. I mean BEAUTIFULLY! It is a visual feast with interesting and positive things to say. Very happy I took the time to watch this one.
