Review

Junho meets Eunji again when he goes for a part-time photographing job at a magazine. They met through a dating application but Eunji pretends she doesn’t know him. Although they spend a night together and have feelings for each other, practical problems get in the way. They hide their relationship and give each other hard times. Eunji dates a man in a more stable position. Somewhere between friends and lovers, their problems go beyond emotions. They remain ‘mates’ due to the delicate issues of employment, future and reality. Sometimes they are drained of physical and emotional energy and sometimes offer pathetic consolation. The word ‘mate’ almost becomes a proper noun for the young generation, who can´t bear responsibility for each other. The film captures subtle moments in bars, apartments or alleys throughout. [LEE Sang-yong]
