TIME TABLE
SYNOPSIS

A country-bred man lodging in Seoul is looking for a job. He is so-called a 'Baek-su', a man out of occupation but has one-sided love for the landlord's daughter. His love is never ruturned due to his timidness and he always fails to get a job. One day he encounters the girl by accident picking up a wallet a drunken man dropped in the park. He and she head for a cafe to open the wallet together.

DIRECTING INTENTION

A short film made from a trivial anecdote written in a journal. At that time I was interested in comedies, my intention was to make a conventionlgenre movie. On the basis of realim strategy instead of exaggeration, I tried to make a satire on the society. Later this short work was remade to the feature film directed by Woo-suk Kang with the title of " I stand up everyday"
