One summer weekend, Kyung-Hoon, a high school teacher, sets out to make home visits to his students. With the sun glaring and a hangover continuing, it is a giddy afternoon. To top it all, standing before his home, as always, is Sang-Woo, one of his homeroom students. For some time, he has been chasing after Kyung-Hoon. Getting especially close today, the boy makes a threatening demand with photographs of his teacher that he took at a bar, where the two met by chance: they must spend the day together. Will Kyung-Hoon be able to withstand Sang-Woo’s temptation, which tenaciously provokes his hidden desire? ~ indieplus

Sang-woo blindly draws near and Kyung-hoon, his teacher, keeps pushing him away. Can Kyung-hoon tolerate Sang-woo’s seduction, which persistently touches his hidden desire? Suddenly, Last Summer, a story about a boy who rushes recklessly and a teacher who is vacillated by it, got a good review from Indie Forum this year. “I am your teacher” (Kyung-hoon), “You kept staring at me” (Sang-woo) as shown from these lines, Kyung-hoon is trying hard to push him away but Sang-woo persistently draws near. The story is constructed through this cat-and-mouse game. Suddenly, Last Summer is a film about the cold social convention towards sexual minorities. Kyung-hoon tries to open his heart when on a cruise ship but closes it when it reaches the shore. The long distance that never seems to diminish, gets closer by the end of the movie. With a lovely ending that breaks from convention, Suddenly, Last Summer is the most commercial film from LEESONG Hee-il’s 3-part queer series. The fantastic view that Kyung-hoon looks upon on the cruise ship takes them to a beautiful place. ~ koreanfilm
