Full film details

When she first gets his attention, Jong-su (Ah-In Yoo) doesn’t remember Hae-mi (Jon-sea Jeon) – but soon he won’t be able to get her out of his head. An old schoolmate who he hasn’t thought about in years, a chance encounter reignites a friendship that will end up haunting him…

It seems as soon as they find each other, the two must say goodbye. Hae-mi soon leaves the country to travel to Africa. But when she returns to Seoul, Jong-su is the first person she calls.

She tells him she’s stranded at the airport and needs help. Obligingly, he goes to collect her – only to find she’s not alone.

Ben (Steven Yeun) is handsome, rich, and worldly – everything Jong-su isn’t. But despite being jealous, he continually agrees to spend time with the couple.

As time passes, Ben says and does things that Jong-su finds strange. And when Hae-mi goes missing, he believes he knows exactly what’s happened…

Based on “Barn Burning”, the short story by Haruki Murakami, Burning is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Chang-long Dee (Poetry) and was nominated for the prestigious Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Starring Ah-In Yoo (Chicago Typewriter), Steven Yeun (Okja) and Jon-Seo Jeon.
