Arthouse filmmaker Goo can't seem to direct a hit, but at least the critics love him. He goes to Jecheon, North Chungcheong Province to judge the local film festival, but the common practice for jurors is to schmooze by day, drink at night, and sleep through movies. He bumps into an old friend Boo Sang-yong in town and drinks till he passes out, but not before soundly offending his friend's wife. After Jecheon, Goo heads to Jeju Island to give a college lecture. There he meets up with a former mentor, who it turns out is now married to Goo's ex-unrequited lover Edit Translation

Never had Hong Sangsoo projected himself onto one of his films more so than Like You Know It All. I truly believe that Director Hong sees himself as a self loathing, destructive man child. This is a quite hateful film with any interaction Director Ku has with people ending in pain and suffering. Seemingly empty words and gestures that Ku doesn't think much of have a grave effect on those around him. Director Ku somehow within a month inadvertently allows a rape take place, crushes his friend’s wife's spirit and then exposes the boring marriage for what it is. And despite it all, nothing is gained. The only take away Ku takes from his encounters is that no one understands his films because he doesn't understand himself. The sweetest thing that transpired was the camera lingering on a playful couple in the pool while Director Ku starts to gain some hope in his life reading the note Ko Soon wrote him, which is scuppered when reality comes crashing down upon him. This is one of Hong Sangsoo's more beautiful films. It's only appropriate that it's also his most scathing.
