Sungjoon travels to Seoul to meet a close friend who lives in the Bukchon area. When the friend does not return his calls, former filmmaker Sungjoon ends up wandering around Bukchon encountering all sorts of people and situations. Some people are familiar. One reminds him of an ex-girlfriend (or she might be his ex-girlfriend), and, at one point, he finally meets up with the friend he came to visit. In the midst of all his interactions and wandering, it is unclear whether Sungjoon has spent a few days in Seoul or if it is still his first day there. Either way, he is most definitely living in the present.
