NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE

Synopsis

Eun-hee is an actress whose acting is poor, but she also plays in her real life. Her performance full of lies helps her feel she creates different personalities each time she dates separate men. Eventually a pack of her lies is tangled up and everything is about to be messed up.

Ryohei, a Japanese writer, visits Seoul for his book launch party. He often writes a story pushing characters into a corner and then makes it be a tragedy. He meets Eun-hee by chance, who is in a trouble, just like in his novels.

Programmer’s Note

“It was a long long day. It was the day God set out to ruin my life” For aspiring actress Eun-hee, a line from her play comes uncomfortably close to reality. On one problematic day, unlucky situations keep coming one after another. This frank and honest film observes Eun-hee as she attempts to navigate her tangled relationships with three different men from her past and present. As we become more engaged with her plight, we realize that perhaps she hasn’t earned the film’s title, but rather she’s just a human who’s having a bad day. “But, do not worry. This story has a happy ending. She’ll be happy in the end.”
