Seongjun(Yu Junsang) heads to Seoul to meet a close friend who lives in the Bukchon area. When the friend doesn’t answer his calls, Seongjun 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 makgeolli (rice wine) by himself. Some film students at another table ask him to join them-Seongjun used to be a film director. He soon gets drunk and heads for his ex-girlfriend’s house.
