"The Day After - 2017" was screened on the 22nd in Cannes, France at the 70th Cannes International Film Festival.
"The Day After - 2017" wasn't given much detail in the beginning so curiosity built up.
A married director of a publishing company named Bong Wan (Kwon Hae-hyo) falls in love with his junior employee Chang-sook (Kim Sae-byeok) but they break up. He heads for work just like any other day but his wife (Jo Yoon-hee) finds writings that seem like love letters in the house. She finds him at work but mistakes newbie Ah-reum (Kim Min-hee) as her husband's secret lover.
Hong Sang-sooadded his humor in the movie in the lines and that made the movie seem more light.
The screening was a success and judges claimed it was one of the best in the competition and a standing ovation took place for about 4 minutes during the ending credit. Kim Hae-hyo seemed to get watery in the eyes.
