Off Campus Location
Continuing on the path of the miscommunication-filled romance we saw last year in the Korea Cinema NOW screening of Right Now, Wrong Then, director Hong Sang-soo brings us what could be interpreted as a self-confession and explanation of the affair with the main actress Kim Min-hee.
Here, she plays the role of a disillusioned young actress Young-hee, visiting her friend Jee-young (Seo Young-hwa) in Germany. Young-hee is recovering from the end of an affair with a married film-maker and she discusses her scandalous relationship wandering in the winter weather and visiting friends.

Once back in Korea, she walks the lonely beaches of Gangneung and discusses the right to her choices and the harm she’s done to other people.
