A film director falls for a young painter – twice. Quite by accident, a film director arrives in town a day early. With time to kill before his lecture the next day, he stops by a restored, old palace and meets a fledgling artist. She’s never seen any of his films, but knows he’s famous. They talk. And together, they go to her workshop to look at her paintings, have Sushi and Soju. More conversation follows, and drinks, and then an awkward get-together with friends where all sorts of secrets are revealed. All the while, they may or may not be falling for each other. Then, quite unexpectedly, we begin again, but now things appear somewhat different.
“No filmmaker better understands the revelatory properties of small talk and soju, and few could make the art of repetition seem so rife with possibilities.” – Justin Chang, LA Times
“The Hong trademarks are all there in “Right Now, Wrong Then,” but so is a newfound optimism and romantic glow. Rarely has he been such a crowd-pleaser, while also being so bittersweet.” – Paste Magazine
