Plot & Details

A delightful film of repeating patterns and circumstance, The Day He Arrives is a meditation on relationships, filmmaking, and the unknowable forces that govern our lives. Seongjun, a film director who no longer makes films, goes to Seoul to meet a close friend. When the friend doesn't show up, Seongjun begins to wander the city aimlessly. He runs into an actress he used to know, shares a drink with some young film students, then, against his better judgment, heads to his ex-girlfriend's apartment. The next day, he finally meets his friend, has some drinks, shares some conversation, and meets a young woman who looks exactly like his ex-girlfriend. The next day goes very much like the previous day. Through it all Seongjun moves forward, struggling to find a purpose to his trip.
