Review

An art student Yoonju prepares for a graduation exhibition. She goes to a junk shop to get some material and happens to meet Jisoo. Yoonju has a good feeling toward the girl. After several encounters, the two starts dating. For the first time in her life, Yoonju feels the throbbing of love and falls into her partner. The film doesn’t explain about Yoonju’s sexual orientation but just some allusion. Their love looks uneasy and vulnerable. The film cautiously observes their emotions. Some may call it timid but the careful gaze captures the cold society that prohibits another kind of love. (KIM Youngjin)
