A well-known South Korean writer has been spending the last five years in France. For three of those years, he was having an affair with an ambitious woman writer. As he returns to be with his wife and family, he is picked up at the airport by the woman traveler, and at first he thinks she wants to resume the affair, something he is entirely willing to do. However, she maintains a level of impersonality which rebuffs him. When he gets to his home, he tries to persuade his wife to give him a divorce, but she refuses. Then he looks up the woman he had an affair with. Her earlier coolness is explained by the fact that she's marrying someone else, and her evasiveness by the fact that she stole one of the writer's unpublished articles and passed it off as her own, establishing her own reputation as a writer. Once those things are revealed, she is again willing to carry on her affair.
