Synopsis: Filmmaker Jo Moon Kyeong is going to leave Seoul to live in Canada. Days before his departure, he meets his close friend and film critic Bang Joong Sik on a nearby mountain. They both drink makgeolli, a traditional Korean alcoholic beverage. After a few rounds, they find out that coincidentally they have both been recently at the same small seaside town of Tongyeong. They decide to reveal their accounts of the trip while drinking, under the condition that they only stick to pleasant memories. Not realizing that they were in the same place, at the same time, and with the same people, the two men's reminiscence of a hot summer unfolds like a journal of memories.

Then you've experienced

something new today.

All because you now know more.

Thank you and

I hope you'll come back.

- Thank you.

- Thank you.

Thank you.

Let's get going.

- Was it fun?

- Yes.

- Hello.

- Well done.

- Hi.

- Hello.

This is Wang Seongok.

He's a professor from Seoul

and a film director.

What was your name?

- I'm Jo Munkyung.

- Nice to meet you.

- Did you listen to me talk?

- Yes, but...

I actually think...

The less you know,

the more you see.

Sorry, but do you see

what I mean?

No, I don't see it at all.

I should go.

See you tomorrow.

Nice meeting you.

An average face,

but a very nice figure.

It caught my eye.

I see. Cheers.


What's that for?


I'm starting

hypnosis treatment in Seoul.


- It's that bad?

- Over six months now.

I can't stand being at home.

What's the matter?

Problems with your wife?


She's a good person...

Look at that.

Can't see a thing!

Now that's much better.

They blocked the whole view.

It's better now.

Don't be depressed.

Everyone's down these days.

I saw some great legs, too.

On the way

to Hansan Island.

You work at the shipyard?

Yes, for now.

Where did you work before?

- At the National Intelligence Service.

- Really?

For a few years,

but I got bored and quit.


Working in China was fun, though.

In China?

What did you do there?

I was a spy.

Really? A spy?

You were a spy?

Hard to believe,

I know.

- Everyone thinks that.

- I didn't mean...

I feel like drinking.

Buy me a drink tonight.

I have to work.

Not again.

Writing poems isn't work.

It is for me.

He goes home to write

in the middle of drinking.

I see.

What do you know

about poetry?

Fine. I'm ignorant.

You work that hard?

I just write a bit every day.

I have to.
