- In telling the story of a man and his contemplative walk along the river that divides Seoul, director Kim Kyung-Mook is using his setting of the Cheonggyecheon River;so notoriously polluted since the Japanese occupation but recently recovered enough to constitute a tourist attraction;to speak for South Korea's shifting and alternating identity between the old and the new Seoul. He centers his surrealistic comic drama on a transsexual who is just at the point of becoming a woman, and who one day gets out of his house feeling that someone is observing him. While wandering in the streets, he meets a talking dog, after which he is chased by a mysterious man. Hiding in a shop, he is transformed into a woman. Thus transformed he anticipates love but his body reverts to that of a male. The male side of the protagonist perceives the city very differently from the female side, and man-woman and dog-that-talks walk the changing city together.
