Films In Daejeon: Night and Day [Korea]

Seung-nam [Kim Yeong-ho (김영호)], an award-winning painter and married man in his early forties, shows up with his big traveling bag at the airport in Paris. He’s fleeing from an arrest after smoking marijuana while he was drunk at a coincidental gathering. In the 14th district of Paris, he takes refuge at a run-down lodge owned by a Korean. Apart from wandering the streets and prowling in the park, he seems to have nothing else to do. He coincidentally meets his ex-girlfriend Min-sun [Kim Yu-jin (김유진)]
on the street, but their reunion really doesn’t ignite any interest for him. His love and worries for his wife [Hwang Soo-jeong (황수정)]whom he left alone follows him around like his wallet. Seung-nam is introduced to Hyun-joo [Seo Min-jung (서민정)], a student studying art in Paris, and her roommate Yoo-jeong [Park Eun-hye (박은혜)]. Sung-nam falls headlong for Yoo-jeong’s neat and sharp beauty and mind-boggling mysteriousness. Seung-nam tries to adapt to this unfamiliar city, but like walking into a dark cave, he falls deep for Yoo-jeong and Paris.
