After drinking, Hyuk-jin and his friends decide to go on a trip to console Hyuk-jin who broke up with his girlfriend. However, he now should start the trip to a strange place by himself without his friends who have broken their promise. The film fully follows a romance and fantasy of a man who travels alone. Subverting everyday life, the film conveys a feature of traveling as a strange and odd experience; a romance and failure with a strange woman in a dreamy night; an absurd woman in a bus; a truck driver who has saved Hyuk-jin´s life suddenly turning into a changed man. This is obviously an excess of experiences, but the film naturally creates reality through the landscapes of Gangwon province, the steady camera and minimization of cuts. Daytime Drinking resembles Ramblers (2003) by Yamashita Nobuhiro, in that it expresses the extremity of fears and thrills in a strange place when the expecting friends never show up and everything to be expected goes upside down. Putting the strange trip back to where it used to be, the film seems to mention that this unique experience can happen in everyday life. This event, of course, is like an immaturity and embarrassment to reveal everything inside of a mind like rashness after a daytime drinking instead of a beautiful memory.
