Synopsis
Hee-jung notices that her underwear pops out and dresses neatly hurriedly. She is on the lookout for a man who looks sneaky but he hasn’t done anything. At that time, Hee-jung finds that a boy has been touching her and feels very unpleasant. However when she touches a woman’s butt by mistake, Hee-jung feels an impulse to touch her butt again.
Director's Note
There appears one woman who touches another woman’s butt. I want audiences to read the woman’s victim mentality which is in her mind. I think the victim mentality happens because of sexual pressure, not because of one’s sexual taste. Now some people are confused of this, but I will support them and I love the woman who is in the subway in this film.
