Two drastically different people meet through an essay about the single life and revisit their old wounds from past loves in the process. Park Young Ho is a popular lecturer and influencer with 300,000 followers. He thoroughly enjoys the single life and lives teetering between being emotional and being pretentious. Joo Hyun Jin, a college junior of Young Ho’s, is a competent publisher and the editor-in-chief in charge of the essay series titled “Single in the City.” She dislikes being alone.

Presumptions & Perceptions

This movie is an essay on presumption and perception.
Every scene explores how different people interpret the same things based on how their life experiences have shaped their point of view. From the editor's notes to the male writer, to the editor's "romantic life," and the conflict about a couple's first love story.

Beautifully shot scenes, excellent acting, and a story that challenges the viewers presumptions and perceptions.

I was super excited for this movie because of Lee Dong Wook and what I thought I would be seeing, and I ended up seeing more than I expected.

Everything is perceived in a relative manner !

I stumbled across a feed post that said subs out, saw LDW and here we are !

This movie does not know where it stands and it has no say of it own it's just trying to be everything we see in the western films which go out and portray lives of single people as lonely and give out a message that there are people that surround you even in the dark or like the ones where they tell you to value people and one of the main character sets an eg themselves !

- the false hope kinda movies where after everything the boy falls for a girl - a sudden twist like a lie or anything to draw them apart and they suddenly mature and get together by the end - TYPICAL HALLMARK MOVIES! And no denial they have an audience of their own and people love them because they are done right.

but am I the crowd , NO! so apparently I should have bothered doing some research instead of jumping, which I usually do but I did not IDK why lord nvm that ...also I rarely watch kmovies so I am not sure what they do there generally but I just wish it had a few brainers bec for me the movie was too dumb!

The fl looked dishevelled, like wtf they did with her hair and clothes - no sorry that's not how editors generally look - she lacks the basic confidence - okay she is good at her job and what else - no personality ??? - just being dumb and drunk that's her thing.
yk when she actually takes a stand for her self by that time I rarely cared. she could be bad at love and taking hints but that's not how she is shown. instead the figure that comes to life for viewers is like she's a lost cause and has nothing of her own so poigant !

the ml was supposed to enjoy single life - like he doesn't seem to be doing so - he look's pathetically alone with no people no friends and more like he's a social star right - does he even look like he's enjoying posting ? he's not happy and please don't portray that single people can't be happy they can be and fuck can they are happy ! it's a choice ! - like in short he's just being pathetic !

the side characters -- omg they all have no personality - like i get that it's general for nerds to read books and be in the business but nerds can dress up and have a fucking personality - i am a book reader myself and I sure don't look like that, sorry bitches get things straight before you work on another project like that !

The only thing I liked about it was the message that everything is relative and what people remember is based on how they feel at present and it can't be the reality of it all ! - it's subjective !

all in all if you are trying to copy HALLMARK - better do a good job next time or I am literally skipping kmovies !
