"It wasn't meant to be." The sentence describing so many relationships that fail before they've really begun also applies to director Ham Chun-su and artist Yoon Hee-jung. He's in Suwon for a film showing and meets Hee-jung in a free few minutes. She recognizes him as a well-known director and the pair spend the day together. They visit her studio, eat sushi, drink soju and in the evening go out with Hee-jung's girlfriends. The pair grow steadily closer -- and yet in the end everything goes wrong. But what exactly? This is the question that director Hong Sang-soo pursues in his playful romance – and so he has it begin again, albeit under slightly altered circumstances.
