Keep the regular

photographer's separate.

Open them in order of date.

...and put those you can't

fix on my desk.

...make sure the red post

they go to the boss.

...and don't try to open them.


How is Jae Hyung doing?

I bet he is good with his hands.

When did you know that?

Well, Nam Eun called me last month.

Nam Eun?

Gi Hyuk's daughter.

...remember that you took pictures

at her graduation?

Did he have a daughter?

Don't tell him about any stupid things.

I didn't cheat anyone.

How can he contact us

just before he dies?

Knock it off!

He cheated me out of

more of my money.

By the way, what's the name

of his disease?

Liver cancer.

He's got something to tell you.

About what?

I don't know

I'm terribly sorry.

Shut up!

I don't want to hear that.

You, son of...

...you can't imagine

how miserable I was.

I am so sorry.

...but you're a good friend.

whenever you have cheated me

you have said that.

You are truly my best friend.

I mean it.

I have been around you.

...for 8 years.

I wished I had appeared

before you at my best.

It is 8 years already.

I never meant to hurt you.


Thank you so much

for coming though.

I feel more sorry...

...for Nam Eun and you.

Please take care of her.


...check how she is holding up.

...for me please.

I have no regrets in life

except her.

She is living right near

where you once lived.

You can find a milk box

next to a name-plate.

You won't miss it.

That's the way it goes.

we impose a heavy burden.

...on our favorite people.

we do bad things to them.

And always end up owing

big things to them.

That's why we come to lose.

...the bigger one.

That's the life.

This is so typical of you.

This is so you, son of...

You shouldn't have turned it on.

You asked me to do so.

It wouldn't have broken

if you had listened to me.

Please remember

'Penny-wise and pound-foolish'

Bring the bigger bucket.

You got to fill the bucket

and wipe down.

What happened?

We've got the leaky pipes.

Why didn't he come out of

his room?

Jae Woong, what are you doing?

Are you going out again?

I've got a blind date

I have to leave now

Just let him go.

You always run away...

Get out of here!

Hey, you!

Wash the dishes before you leave.

Can you please take

my pictures again?

What for?

I need them for work.

I am always thankful.

You came.

Oh, yes.

Did you bring your laundry?

It's so shameful to ask you

to do that.

It's ok.

I can put them all together

into the washing machine.

I already did.

Why didn't you show up

at the funeral?

I've been busy working.

Busy or not, We all must

attend a close friend's funeral.

Once I start fixing a camera...

I must finish it.

You cant' lose a little tiny part.

That's such a lame excuse.

I heard Yoon will take care of

Nam Eun's school expenses.

She lives right by your work.

...you could stop by and see her.

Is there any way I can help her?

Is she that young?

She is emotionally unstable

she has been running away.

Though she has a lot of potential.

He haunts me from the grave.

I've got a call from

the Contact guy.


It must be photographer Kim.

He is not a photographer.

Sunee, Sunee...

What are you doing, man?

What do you think I am doing?

You always give me

the cold shoulder.

Business is good enough

to hire a new worker.

Hey, new worker!

You got to treat the camera

you got to treat the camera.

I'm not a worker but his pupil.

Who the hell is my pupil?

Don't be upset, my friend.

Who the hell is your friend?

You are not even 40 yet.

You are in a touchy mood today.

Did you get my camera done?

I need to check the test shot.

Fixing not shooting is your job.

Shooting is my job.


Well, I just...

Did you come and see me?


Do you remember me?


I took some pictures

at your graduation.

Sorry for coming late.

No, it's all right.

Is this milk to drink?

I've lost two family members

in a week.

I barely cried

when my dad died.

I cried more

when my cat died.

I guess I am a bad girl.

No, you are not.

People are just like that

when their dads die.

It takes time to notice.

...the absence of a father.



Why is that?

Because we're usually...

...more grieved over the loss of

someone we give love to.

...than the loss of someone

we're loved by. That's why.

we're more sorry when we lost our

children than we lost our parents.

You are not married yet.

No, I'm not.

So, how do you know that?

My dad used to tell me.

The stupid guy

has never been in love.

The stupid guy he meant is you.


I am the only one

that stupid.

I'm sorry.

It was a slip of the tongue

cause I'm so absent-minded.

That's all right.

Oops! Are you ok?

Well... I'm just fine.

I will give you another outfit

There are plenty of dad's.

Never mind.

He got all these

from place to place.

They look all right.

Are you wearing a scarf

even at home?

I easily catch colds

if I keep my neck cold.

Why don't you try this on?

I was wondering where it was.

It's mine.

It's yours?

That looks like mine too!

My studio is just around the corner.


I know

You know?

I saw it whenever passing by.

Your dad asked me

to stop by you.


...before he died.

You don't have to.

Well, ok.

I mean that you can do it

if you want to.

Isn't it heavy?

Let me carry one of your bags.

Nam Eun, how old are you?

Twenty five.

You are already...

You don't remember me.

Yes, I do.

I remember taking pictures

at your graduation.

You seem to have grown up

so suddenly.

I was all grown up

many years ago.

I'm not disappointed

that you don't remember me.

I mean...

We haven't seen each other

for a long time.

...you were not interested in me.

...and you hated my dad, so...

That's not true.

I never hated your dad.

Just have a seat.

I have been wondering

what it is like inside.

I never let anybody touch that area.

You are the first.

It must be good to be

someone's first.



You were in the newspaper.

I didn't know that.

Do you live here alone?

Well, I used to stay

at my brother's place.

But it was uncomfortable.

You could be living

in a good place now

without getting swindled

by my father.

Getting swindled was my fault.

I feel a mysterious attraction to

skilled man, especially to those...

...skilled with these

complicated machines.

If I was left home alone

when I was young.

I was afraid of machinery.

My room was so small and old

that I could here only the sound.

I didn't even know the machines.

...or how to operate them.

But I could hear the sound so well.

...someone who knows machines

is mysteriously appealing to me.

It's nothing.


If you say so...
