KIM Jeong-gwon, Drama, 111 minutes

On a night of a lunar eclipse, So-eun (KIM Ha-neul, My Tutor Friend), a college student from 1979, comes in contact with a stranger, In (YOO Ji-tae, Old Boy, Woman Is the Future of Man), through a broken amateur HAM radio. Through their conversations on the radio, they discover that they are attending the same university.  They decide to meet each other at school the next day.  However, as they both waited at the arranged location, they were unable to meet each other—which begins the interesting twist in this movie.  Ditto is director KIM Jeon-gwon’s first feature, and in this movie, he tells a story of love and relationship with beautiful poetic sense. He won the New Director’s Award at the 8th Chunsa Film Festival in Korea.
