Deliveryman Jongsu is out on a job when he runs into Haemi, a girl who once lived in his neighbourhood. She asks if he’d mind looking after her cat while she’s away on a trip to Africa. On her return she introduces to Jongsu an enigmatic young man, the sophisticated and suave Ben, whom she met during her trip. Ben drives around in his Porsche and strongly resembles Jay Gatsby. It’s evident that Jongsu is suffering because Haemi is not about to jettison her big-bucks boyfriend for him, just as it’s clear that the ever-passive Jongsu’s jealousy is slowly coming to a boil.

"When I was first recommended this short story, I was a bit taken aback. Because the story felt mysterious, but nothing really happens in it. But /.../ there was something very cinematic about that mysteriousness. /.../ The gaping holes in the chain of events – the missing piece from which we can never know the truth – allude to the mysterious world we live in now; the world in which we sense that something is wrong but cannot quite put a finger on what the problem is." (Lee Chang-dong)
