Min-seok, who has just returned to Korea from Australia, gets to know his father left for Thailand with his stepmother. He is going to stay at his late grandmother’s house for a while. Su-ho, who is the son of Min-seok’s stepmother and has just been discharged from the navy, also needs a place to stay. In this way, they get together unintentionally and not as comfortably in a rustic rural place.
Only after a relationship ends, do we come to realize what it was for. A person, who I thought would be just a man of that sort I’ve met while living , might be the only person to whom I opened up. I felt inclined to express some feelings that we didn’t know then but suddenly came to realize after the relationship ended via a story of two men, the one who lost the power to start again and the other who is curious about everything while standing at the starting line.
