Days before his departure, he meets his close friend and film critic Bang Joong Sik on a nearby mountain. They both drink makgeolli, a traditional Korean alcoholic beverage. After a few rounds, they find out that coincidentally they have both been recently at the same small seaside town of Tongyeong. They decide to reveal their accounts of the trip while drinking, under the condition that they only stick to pleasant memories. Not realizing that they were in the same place, at the same time, and with the same people, the two men’s reminiscence of a hot summer unfolds like a journal of memories.
Plot: Over drinks, two friends agree to swap fond memories of their recent trips to the same seaside town. As the stories unfold in flashback, it becomes evident their accounts take place at the same time—and with the same people.

A real patience tester
I keep watching Hong Sang-soo movies in the hope that I’ll find one I like, but I keep being disappointed. HAHAHA is no exception to that rule. It’s an interminable work about drinking and socialising, just like the rest of the movies I’ve seen by him, and the characters are completely dull and alienate the viewer from the outset.
I love Korean cinema and think they’re at the top of their game in various genres: from electrifying action thrillers to the art-house dramas of Kim Ki-duk, I’m a real fan. But Hong Sang-soo seems to keep making the same movie over and over again; he clearly has little to say as a writer and instead prefers to return to familiar themes that are so obviously his comfort zone.
I found zero distinguishing characters in HAHAHA, just a lot of light humour which wasn’t funny, plus the soppy romance stuff that I avoid like the plague wherever I see it. Yeah, I’m still not a fan.
A lighthearted and well-balanced movie
As Hahaha was the first Sang-soo Hong movie I saw, I found it unusual, and certainly different from the Korean movies and directors I am already acquainted with.
Far from the raw beauty of Hwal and the dark mysteries of Janghwa, Hongryeon, Hahaha’s main virtue seems to be the equilibrium found in the different sides of the same story, almost like a documentary made of fiction.
In this sense, Hahaha is not a deep film in itself, even though it is quite intellectual in its approach and structure. The final result is a lighthearted, refreshing and very entertaining movie, with a nice camera work and interesting settings.
The narrative is a bit tricky now and then, and probably it is a good idea to see this film at least twice to untie some secondary knots, even though the story gets clear enough from the first viewing.
All in all, a nice movie that certainly deserves to be watched.
