CGiii Comment

Not your usual 'coming out' story.

This is slow, quiet and intense.

The cinematography - especially the close-ups - is impressive as it the tone.

A thoughtful films about first love loss...from two perspective. Aaaw.

The(ir) Blurb...

Hyun-woo confesses to Eun-jung but gets rejected. Then, Eun-jung handed Hyun-woo a fairy tale book - Hyun-woo gradually learns about the secret of Eun-jung.
