Lee Hyun-ju (played by Yoon Jung-hee) is secretly living with bank co-worker, Mr. Park (played by Shin Seong-il), who is not only incapable of satisfying her sexually, but also refuses to offer her the security of marriage. Caught between a state of discontent, the painful memories of her first love and a world of fantasy, her desires kick in. In high school, she falls in love with her teacher who leaves her an unwed mother when he dies in the Vietnam War. She turns to roaming the streets of the night that filled with temptation and pleasure, becoming disillusioned by the wretched and shameless beings that occupy it, and even experiencing ecstasy for the first time from forced sex with strangers.

Night Journey remains as one of the highlights of Kim Soo-yong’s oeuvre, and it is adapted from a work by the acclaimed 20th-century novelist Kim Seung-ok.  Though it is based on Kim Seung-ok’s novel, Night Journey also shares a lot with the film Looking for Mr. Goodbar, besides the central plot of a woman who is desperate to see a world beyond her past, using sexuality to compensate for loss which in the case of Miss Lee’s loss of her true love, whereas Theresa it is more an issue of lost time from her youth caused by illness and Catholic repression.  Kim soo-yong employs a similarly loose narrative structure and mixes daring cinematography and sound to create a modernist aesthetic that allows you into the mind of the film’s central character.
