Movie Info

Quite by accident, a film director arrives in town a day early. With time to kill before his lecture the next day, he stops by a restored, old palace and meets a fledgling artist. She's never seen any of his films, but knows he's famous. They talk. And together, they go to her workshop to look at her paintings, have Sushi and Soju. More conversation follows, and drinks, and then an awkward get-together with friends where all sorts of secrets are revealed. All the while, they may or may not be falling for each other. Then, quite unexpectedly, we begin again, but now things appear somewhat different.

Critic Reviews for Right Now, Wrong Then

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (41) | Rotten (4)

  • It's a rich work that is by turns contemplative and comic.

    August 12, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Hong is quietly preoccupied with the value of living authentically; you have to give him credit for continuing to find new angles on a story he's told ad nauseam.

    July 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Hong is well aware of his formula, and his cheeky new movie pokes terrific fun at the tired criticisms.

    June 24, 2016 | Rating: 4/5

    Top Critic
  • Despite the fact that not much of actual consequence happens during "Right Now, Wrong Then," Hong does much more right here than he does wrong.

    June 24, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • An exquisitely intimate reminder that more films (and filmmakers) should prize deep feeling over flash.

    June 24, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Jung is equally credible as a diffident, sensitive artist and an impatient boor, and Ms. Kim slides nimbly from demure to obnoxious.
