Maybe I have to modify my view on Korean queer films because of this.
Unlike its counterparts in other countries, most of the Korean queer films, in my opinions, have always been dark and gloomy, but at the same time they try to reflect the reality of gays living in Korean society. This film is one of the greatest I ever watched in terms of queer films.

This film is not an exception. The overall mood is gloomy, dark, and painful. However, at the same time, Director Lee-Song Hee Il magically depicts passion and warm, heart-beating romance at the same time. I don't know why Director Lee-Song's films are mostly dark and gloomy. Maybe he thinks it is so in Korea, which I agree but don't like much.

This film is about a story that occurs in one night. But that occurrence leaves a deep impression and love in each other's heart. If you are meant to meet someone, when and how doesn't matter.

The story is so good, touching your heart soon and acting is great. The emotions of the actors are delicate and abundant. I watched this film in Korean version, so I dont know if the English translation is good or not. Maybe you cannot get the exact impression that I got if watching it with English subtitle.

I strongly recommend you to watch this film!  You won't regret  it.

AHHHHH~ this film ,i quite like it not the greatest i have seen but its worth the watch i love the how it gradually yet realistic the emotions were and how it began to change as this film went on. i defiantly liked the play in lighting as well. The ending is as if it is trying to please the view but at the same time not giving u a hidden look of the reality that they face. i understand what the director was going for but what i give him my support is that he didnt keep it as ur common ending as if there would be no hope but gave us a shimmer of hope
and love at the end. What i loved more was the One night stand guy i love the symbolic play in words and scene how towards the end he achieved what he had said in the beginning to make it real. to him it didnt matter the room or if it was a stall or not it mattered the meaning behind the act to him. and towards the end i loved how the main character pulled through and showed his emotions like i said he did well in riding the emotion rollercoaster and beat it with a smile on his face.
