When his wife Haejoo is convinced her husband Bongwan is having an affair because it seems he’s recently lost weight, she stumbles upon a love poem evidently intended for his mistress. Making a surprise visit to her husband’s office, where he works as the head of a publishing house, she assaults his assistant, Areum, assuming she is his lover. However, it’s Areum’s first day on the job, which leads to a traumatic conversation between the two women, forcing Bongwan to step in to acknowledge the note was intended for his former lover and employee Changsook. After a meal and lots of Soju, Bongwan convinces Areum to give the job another chance when they’re suddenly interrupted by the return of Changsook. (Nicholas Bell)
