The premise started out great and we see the dynamic between the characters, it was not overdone or totally subdued, so there is enough nuance in the story if you read between the lines. Despite being amateurs, the cast delivers a performance that made the characters believable. Cinematography is a plus also and the director took conscious care of the film's rich surroundings despite being in a small random cafe/resto.

The only drawback in the short film is that it left more questions than answers. Although there are moments of clarity, the film introduces elements that are out of whack: like what is the significance of mentioning that of all the days that the scheduled chef broke his arm is the day that Min Jae shows up with the new boyfriend, is it supposed to be a fate-inspired meeting or was it deliberate? Why did Min Jae ask a random question to Geon Woo to see if he truly likes him?

Maybe the true purpose of this film is to make people question their current and past relationships that fall into a cycle, as Noona says, of getting to know each other and once this phase over, moves onto the next.
But despite the average review, I will still encourage supporting the titles coming out from this small production studio. (Strongberry on Vimeo)
