She suffers from chronic insomnia caused by traumatic events from a prior relationship.Yet in the next scene, Choi is shown sleeping soundly on the bus sitting next to Lim, while going on a field trip with their students.
Also, props to the cinematography, enjoyed the hand held camera style employed by director Han Jae-Rim.
Really gave the sense of being a third party observer while Kang and Choi’s relationship unfolded.
Here’s Seoulistic’s video on When and How to Bow in Korea: Titles and Names: When calling other people, Korean etiquette often dictates the use of titles instead of names. Park,” the title 아버지 (abeoji – “father”) is more appropriate.
Most of the time the titles are quite obvious (i.e. If you’re ever not sure what to call the other person, just ask! If it’s an awkward question for you, pull someone else to the side and say, “Dude! ” Drink (or Fake It): All that rigidness that’s built into the culture needs a bit of tweaking.

i'am surprised at the wrong perceptions people review the film after watching it myself.
Questionable things that Lim did to Choi; nearly raped her, repeatedly propositions Choi even though she has a fiance, uses his authority at work to try to get Choi to go out with him, goes through all of Choi’s personal items the first time he is left alone in her apartment. Well in the same way that Choi’s choice of words, when confronted by investigators, skewed their view of what happened between them, listing these negative facts about Lim gives the same type of skewed impression of that person.
The guy is definitely no saint and he has more than his share of faults yet he is far from what those details may lead you to believe about him.
Choi then using his position as a superior and any other method he can think of tries to get Choi to go out with him and eventually he succeeds.
The problem is that they are both in long lasting relationships.
As far as their relationship is concerned, a good indicator on when their relationship started to develop is given early in the film.
