Sa-kwa (Hangul사과; Hanja沙果; lit. "apple" or "apology") is the debut film of South Korean director Kang Yi-kwan. Premiered at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival, although not released in South Korea until late 2008.[3] This subtle, introspective drama of shifting moods—with acute observation of the dynamics of relationships.


Hyun-jung (Moon So-ri), dumped by her boyfriend of seven years, Min-seok (Lee Sun-kyun), is broken and teetering on the brink of emotional collapse as she seeks a new suitor and get married as soon as possible since her biological clock keeps ticking away. Sang-hoon (Kim Tae-woo) enters her life; Hyun-jung is attracted to his shy demeanor and marries him. But then Min-seok reconsiders and wants to return to her.[4]
