"Even by Hong's oeuvre's laid-back standards, this appealing slice of monochrome melancholy is more ambivalent than most. Observing what may be the last days of a disheveled poet calmly convinced he's about to die, it's chiefly an exercise in existential waiting, as unhurried as it is uncertain." (Variety)
