I’m not sure if I can describe this as a romcom or comedy because there’s not a lot of love here, but they are all in some kind of relationships.
The male lead is in a writing slump and meets a gay writer who is in love with him. The ML’s second wife is abroad and he deals with his first wife regularly because their son is a trouble maker. The first wife is secretly dating the male lead’s editor while the son strikes a friendship/falls in love with the neighbor lady who is married but husband is away.
It’s too complicated and chaotic when the stories all come together. I didn’t find the movie funny, except for the scene where the son finds his parents in bed together.
The other noteworthy thing is when the homophobic male lead ends up understanding and supporting the gay writer.
