Famous novelist Junhee’s reunion with two acquaintances would appear to be tinged with a slight sense of acrimony. The first of these colleagues gave up writing to open a bookstore on the outskirts of Seoul and has not given her any feedback about her last book. The second, a filmmaker, never adapted Junhee’s novel as planned. But the more pressing issue is that Junhee has not published anything in a while. Instead, she has begun to question her approach to writing and is having doubts about the sensibility that forged her style and her charismatic, scathing personality.
