Renowned Korean director Hong Sang Soo's 2002 film Turning Gate (a.k.a. On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate) is an offbeat comedy, an astute character study, and a revealing vision of this thing we call romance. From Virgin Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors to Woman is the Future of Man to Woman on the Beach, Hong Sang Soo films may not be heartwarming, life-affirming affairs, but they are always keenly insightful with wry humor, intuitive dialogue, and observant details. An arthouse offering with crossover appeal, Turning Gate explores many of the themes seen in Hong's earlier and later films.
Actor Kyung Soo (Kim Sang Kyung, Memories of Murder) leaves Seoul to visit an old classmate. The reunion with his friend does not amount to much, but the trip does lead to some romantic encounters. He gets involved with two women, first a young college student (Ye Ji Won, Old Miss Diary) whom he leaves without a moment's thought and then a woman (Chu Sang Mi, Everybody Has Secrets) whom he deems his fated partner. As Kyung Soo becomes increasingly invested in this second relationship, he begins to notice certain coincidences and similarities that recall past pairings, blurring his conception of exactly which woman, which relationship, he is so desperately holding on to.
