The Day He Arrives (Book chon bang hyang) and List


Dir. Hong Sang-soo. 2011, 79 mins. 35mm. With Kim Sang-jung, Yu Jun-sang. Sungjoon, a director who no longer makes films, heads to Seoul to meet a friend. He runs into an actress he used to know, shares a drink with some young film students, and against his better judgment, heads to his ex-girlfriend’s house. The next day, or perhaps some other day, Sungjoon finally meets his friend. They go to a bar whose owner bears a striking resemblance to his ex-girlfriend. The next day goes very much like the first; the one after that, the same. Eventually, Sungjoon has no other choice than to face his “today.” Preceded by List (Dir. Hong Sang-soo. 2011, 29 mins. With Jeong Yu-mi, Yoo Joon-sang, Yoon Yeo-jeong).
