The Day He Arrives
Filmfest 2011

Seong-joon heads to Seoul to meet a close friend who lives in the Bukchon area. When the friend doesn't answer his calls, Seong-joon wanders around Bukchon and runs into an actress he used to know. The two talk for a while, but soon part. He makes his way down to Insadong and drinks rice wine by himself. Some film students at another table ask him to join them - Seong-joon used to be a film director. He soon gets drunk and heads for his ex-girlfriend's house. Whether it's the next day or some other day, but Seong-joon is still wandering around Bukchon. He runs into the actress again. They talk and soon part. He eventually meets his friend and they head to a bar called Novel with a female professor his friend knows. The owner of the bar has a striking resemblance to Seong-joon’s ex-girlfriend. He plays the piano for her. Whether it’s the next day or some other day... As life presents itself in no more than today's worth of time, Seong-joon also has no other choice than to face his "today".
