By mistake, film director Ham Chun-su arrives in Suwon a day early and has time to kill before his screening with a debate the next day. He stops by a restored, old palace and meets an artist named Yoon Heejung who introduces him to her paintings. They spend time together visiting her studio, having sushi and soju for dinner, spending time drinking with Hee-jung’s friends and they end up growing close to each other. But when Chun-su is asked if he is married, he has no choice but to reveal that he is, deeply disappointing Hee-jung.
“Discovering what is hidden beneath the surface of our lives is the only way to overcome our fears’, says Chun-su, in one of his more lucid moments. It’s a sentiment that could well encapsulate Hong’s exquisite cinema, in which the surface of any given scene can yield insights into the myriad ways men and women seize or sabotage decisive moments in their lives. Enriched by the naturalistic performances of the two leads, Hong’s characteristically subtle camerawork and unexpected bursts of humor, RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN is a delightful addition to Hong’s cinematic catalogue.” (Giovanna Fulvi)
