TIME TABLE
SYNOPSIS

An ordinary normal looking spinster, Jeong-ja is a ticket seller of a theater in a suburb. On a sizzling summer day, she is waiting for a blind date all day long. The man is supposed to come to see her at the theater because she cannot leave the theater.

DIRECTING INTENTION

I'm sure there are people out there living out lives like Julia Roberts movies, but for the most part the reality never lives up to the myth. I chose a lackluster, ordinary spinster who dreams to represent ourselves, and an underground theater as a metaphor for our reality. The actors are amateurs, the lighting is as realistic as I could make it, and I hope the audience appreciates the roughness of the film, as I'm not in this business to give Julia Roberts her close-up.
