Jongsu accidentally bumps into a childhood friend. He falls in love, but then she goes away on a trip and, when she returns, it’s with a new guy under her arm.

Based on a short story by Murakami, Burning is enigmatic, subtle and poetic, like the reflection of a sunbeam or a dance in the twilight.
He studied Korean literature and, in fact, he began his career in cinema as a screenwriter. He debuted as a director with Green Fish (97), which was followed by emblematic films like Peppermint Candy (99) or Poetry (10).
