I Drift on Unknown Waters in a Glass Boat is the story of Eun-ryeong Kim, a restless, lonely young woman who moves to a small seaside town after breaking off an engagement with a man she does not love. There she is unexpectedly swept into a turbulent relationship with two men: the attractive, young poet Yu-gyeong Mun and the wealthy, enigmatic entrepreneur Jin Lee. A tale of unconventional love and desire that is at once erotic and oneiric, I Drift on Unknown Waters in a Glass Boat questions the social mores of contemporary Korean society through the portrait of a marginalized young woman who struggles to make sense of life, love, freedom and morality on her own terms.
