Daytime Drinking (Naj sul) ~ (South Korea, 2008) ~ DVD

This Korean film is too long to hold up and its shoe-string budget shows through at times, but its engaging in spots. Hyuk-jin has just been dumped by his girlfriend, and is getting drunk with his friends in a bar,  when they all decide to take an impromptu road trip. They make plans to leave the next morning and continue to drink away. There’s a lot of drinking going on here! They all get so drunk that Hyuk-jin is the only one who shows up  at the bus station. He ends up going by himself and the story skips from one mis-adventure to another.

Though not as funny as it was probably supposed to be, the plotting is interesting, with a nice vanishing point at the end, though I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this one.
