No beautiful images, either. Writer-director Kim Tae-gon, however, compensates this lack of sophistication and pizzazz with well-considered direction of his cast, who delivers uniformly good performances.

As the seasons burn and then bite, the Clares will find their place in this small upstate community. What's funny is that these scenes, usually showing Hyun-sik stranded in the middle of nowhere, make him, in the context of this rough-and-tumble but strangely charming flick, appear sunk in the middle of a fish bowl, amusingly illustrating the character's exasperation and, shall we say, dork-ish qualities.
Mo-rae, overcome by heat and dizziness, has a sudden sexual encounter with the stranger, who then vanishes. Uhm Tae-woong and Park Yong-woo. Another badly formulated character is the police officer Oh Young-dal. Filmed extremely cheaply with the total budget allegedly under 10 million won over a couple of years by director Noh Young-seok with zero film-school background, Daytime Drinking won an audience award at the Jeonju Film Festival and landed a robust distribution deal, even though its box office performance did not measure up to the mind-boggling success of Old Partner, another extreme low-budget indie feature.

Through turbulent times the four magnificent Latimer sisters, each so different, love as only women do: If Park Jin-pyo's You Are My Sunshine stands as one example of how to successfully update or reconstruct the tear-jerker for the 21st century, at the extreme opposite end lies Moon Seung-wook's Romance, the kind of jaw-dropping train wreck that only a talented director could have made.

Although neither character is portrayed sympathetically -- there are no heroes here -- Young-mi is presented as the one with the greatest expectations, from her appreciation of the acting in the play that Nam-dae mocks to her mapping out the romp at the love motel.
Throughout the film she nags Young-mi to 'be a man'. Scenarist Min Dong-hyun The Art of Fighting 's "Beautiful Strangers" employs a hoary gimmick-two strangers inadvertently stranded in a confined space together-- to tell the story of a befuddled tour-guide magazine writer Ishida Shiota Sadaharu, MPD Psycho stuck in the after-hours Incheon Airport, with the equally bewildered bookstore clerk Goni Lee So-yeon, Git as his only companion.
