Synopsis: Lee Jong-se is a third-rate comedian who believes himself to be a creative genius. He desires nothing more than to be a movie director. When he befriends barber, Mun Do-seok who has hopes to become an actor, it seems like a match made in heaven and the two set off to make a film
127 min

Man, it's hot.

I wish we didn't have summers.

Why not make it simple

and just have spring, fall,

and winter?

By the way

do you like dogmeat?

I wouldn't make it through the heat

without dogmeat.

You never get fat

from eating dogmeat.

But I don't serve the stuff

they're serving nowadays.

They take any dog off the street

and pump it with water.

The meat's tough,

and there's nothing to chew on.

When it comes to dogmeat,

the good old Korean mutts are it.

Anyway, I read on the tabloids last week

that some comedian paid six figures in taxes.

I guess TV stars do make a lot of money.

I heard he had it tough when he was young.

Some people must be born with all the luck.

You had talent in that area

when you were young, right?

I can see how you got into

your line of work.

I started watching movies

from the time I was conceived.

My mother was crazy about movies.

Maybe it's why I've always wanted to be a star.

I watched so many movies back then.

Remember that Viking movie

with Kirk Douglas in it?

That was one impressive movie.

You remember the scene

with the feast, don't you?

Where Kirk Douglas is chewing

on a chicken?

Boy, he could sure

tear into a chicken.

What a chump... he won't know

a flower if he sat on it.

I bet the guy on the right

with glasses barely got hired.

I'm sure he didn't come here

with his own money.

He probably got money behind

the back for a shady loan.

Spending his day counting...

all he can think about

is getting laid.

Girl #17 might be all

smiles right now,

but all she cares about

right now is getting a fat tip.

That rich lady is here again.

I see she has a young escort

for the night.

She'll dance jitterbug

to Beethoven,

because that's

all she knows.

When did this great world of

ours come to value

wads of cash over true

feeling and romance?

Just when did it turn into

this barren,

lifeless, and emotionless wasteland?

What can a genius like myself

can do for times like these?

Your forever lover boy who gets

bigger with your, love, love, love.

Your lark on a sunny day,

I'm your funnyman Lee Jong-sae.

I really hope I can

see you back tomorrow,

and that wraps

it up for me today.


It's me.

What's up?

Of course, I'm fine.


She's getting way too fat.

She gained two pounds last month.

She's so finicky.

She won't eat anything but

whole milk or cheese.

I need to put her on a diet.

Wait, where did she go?

Hold on.

Michelle? Michelle? Michelle?

Sorry about that.

My husband?

He's coming back today.

Yeah, he was in the US

for a business trip.

I'm not lonely.

I can use his money to

go shopping with friends,

see movies, and just enjoy my life.


You switched to golf too?

Good. I changed too,

because aerobics is

so hard and boring.


You can hit bogey already?

Wow, you're almost

a pro now.

Hold on.

My husband must be here.

All right.

Let's play a game together

sometime next week.

OK. See you.

Is that you, honey?

It's me, ma'am.

I'm afraid I have

bad news for you.

Your husband was in an accident

on this way from the airport.

He just went into surgery

and the prognosis isn't out yet.


What's going on?

Are you nuts?

No, it's just that...

the man next to you

looks so funny.

Who are you?

You're the director, right?

It's really nice to see you.

You must have about

a dozen cuts to go.

I guess so...

What is your movie

about this time?

Don't you think the subject matter

is too old?

Anyway, I think we should start

shooting next month.

If we want to portray that melancholy

and tedious atmosphere,
