Byung-soo (KWON Hae-hyo), an acclaimed film director, visits, together with his daughter Jeong-su (PARK Mi-so), an old friend, Ms. Kim (LEE Hye-young), a successful interior designer. The three of them meet in a small, multi-story building owned by Ms. Kim, and chat, eat and drink. Afterwards, Ms. Kim gives Byung-soo and his daughter a tour of the building. She introduces each room on every floor. And floor by floor, short stories unfold, centered on Byung-soo.
In the indie scene, HONG Sang-soo is undoubtedly one of the renowned film directors both in South Korea and internationally. His film The Novelist’s film, which screened at our film festival last year, won the Silver Bear at the Berlinale. Walk Up is HONG’s next film after The Novelist’s Film.
