The Korea Society and Museum of the Moving Image present The Day He Arrives, part of their Korean Cinema Now series. In The Day He Arrives, director Hong Sang-soo tells the tale of former filmmaker Sungjoon, who journeys to Seoul to meet a friend in Bukchon. After waiting, he wanders and crosses paths with an old friend. In Insadong to drink, he meets film students who recognize him and ask him to join in their fun. He spends the night at an ex-girlfriend’s, then wanders about Bukchon the following day, crossing paths with the same old friend. 

The Day He Arrives is filled with nostalgic moments and coincidental run-ins; Hong explores human relations in all their layered complexities.
