나의 피투성이 연인, 2022, 155 min, K16

Becoming pregnant is not every woman’s dream. Jaei has a promising career as a writer and a balanced life together with English teacher Geonwoo. However, a surprise pregnancy irreversibly changes Jaei’s life trajectory. Whose career holds more significance? How to confront the absurd ponderings of loved ones regarding pregnancy taboos? A question from the publishing editor about how Jaei is doing makes her cry, because for once someone isn’t asking about the unborn baby’s well-being.

Under Yoon’s direction, a heart-wrenching drama unfolds on the screen where the viewer witnesses Jaei’s mental turmoil and the collapse of a relationship.
