When Jung-eun sees Hyo-jin first time, she hears the bell in her heart: Ddingdong, Ddingdong, Ddingdong. Increasingly nervous and with no clue of how to get close to Hyo-jin, Jung-eun confides in Jenny, a friend in an internet chat room. Can Jung-eun approach Hyo-jin successfully? The film catches the fluctuating emotional states through a detailed portrayal. (Jay Sohn)
