In the suburbs of Seoul, Young-seok (NAM Joo-hyuk), a senior college student, suddenly sees a young woman (HAN Ji-min) falling from her wheelchair in the street and helps her up. After bringing her home, she cooks him a simple meal and introduces herself as Josée, a name that, as he will later find out, comes from her favorite novel. Fascinated by this person who spends her time reading and knows about whiskey far too well, Young-seok starts to stop by her place on a regular basis to share meals and listen to her stories, each more incredible than the last. Before they know it, their friendship turns into romance.

After his critically acclaimed Worst Woman (2016) and the high-concept The Table (2016), KIM Jong-kwan’s latest work is a Korean film adaptation of the 1985 Japanese novel Josee, The Tiger And The Fish by celebrated author TANABE Seiko. Although the story already received the film treatment in Japan in 2003, this one is expected to hover closer to the source material, albeit logically amended to fit a modern day’s Korean context. HAN Ji-min, long confined to roles of love interests, reinvented herself when she starred as an ex-convict in the drama film Miss Baek (2018), earning Best Actress from the Blue Dragon Film Awards.
