I came to this not sure if it was a movie or a short drama well its neither...Its 4 episodes of about 20 minutes each. Its very confusing from start to finish. It felt like I was missing some episodes. The ending isn't really an ending & at the last episode it said the story would continue in a graphic novel.

I decided to watch this because it had Lee Byung Hun in it (I think he is a fine actor). The first 2 "episodes" deal with two different people & the choices they make at a critical juncture in their lives. They are given the opportunity to go back & do things differently.

The first episode about a news anchorman is probably the easiest to relate to & understand. The last two episodes veer off on a tangent telling the story about the main protagonists & this is where it got confusing. I wish this story was padded out & told in further detail.

I found the "jubilee" visually mesmerising.

Worth a watch I suppose but do not have any expectations.
