About This DVD

Yu Sang-wook is making a comeback after seven years of not directing films. His last film, Mystery of the Cube was back in 1998 and prior to that he directed to other horror/thrillers, Piano Man and Absolute Love. Perhaps trying to break away from the horror genre, Yu has entered the realm of melodrama with the story of a man telling the tale of his one true love to a woman whom he recently dated. He relates his story while the two are riding a bus to the east coast.

The man is played by Kim Min-jong )Romantic Asssassin, Mr Butterfly...) and his lovers, past and present, are played by Kim Yu-mi (Phone, Doll Master...)

A young and promising lawyer Kim In Seo (Kim Min Jong) goes to a dockyard to investigate a case relating to intellectual property rights. In Seo sees Hwa Yeon (Kim You Mi), a female worker who acts just like her male colleagues. One day she gets drunk and he carries her home on his back.

There In Seo meets Hwa Yeon's mother, who is paralyzed, and Hwa Yeon's grandmother, who delights in telling him stories about how the family grows palm trees in the remote mountain areas where the plant cannot normally survive.

Told in flashback, In Seo hears how Hwa Yeon's grandmother married a local fisherman, only to then discover that he had a daughter, Jung Soon (Also played by Kim You Mi) , just two years younger than herself. Her husband regularly beat her up, but she and Jung Soon became good friends. However, the good days didn't last long...
