With its long, languid days and sweltering, starry nights, summertime inspires a sense of freedom and adventure. From the blossom of young romance and swimsuit sunbathing to the promise of mermaids and the search for alien life, this collection of films represents these feelings that summer evokes. Cinema/Chicago, together with the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and our consular and cultural partners, presents SUMMER SCREENINGS, a free weekly film series that embraces the senses of summer and adventure from around the world.

Joeng-bong and Seong-hye run a guesthouse on Jeju Island. With vacation season nearly over, some last-minute guests show up to enjoy the final days of summer.

Beachside romance begins to blossom as these quirky characters find themselves entangled in passions both present and past. Korean with subtitles.
