Short Comptetetion

In-kyung, a piano teacher at a private academy, is informed by her longtime boyfriend Sang-hyun that he will be taking a job in Japan. She decides to start taking Japanese classes without his knowledge; when asked why she’s learning Japanese, In-kyung finds herself unable to answer. In the class, she meets Young-kyun, a young man who wants to learn piano.


Three months is a very short time to learn a language or a musical instrument. So how can we possibly come to understand a person in such a short amount of time? I made this film while thinking about the spaces between people and the sad feeling of neither understanding the other, nor being understood.
