Castaway on the Moon is a 2009 drama filmed in South Korea. Min-hee Hong is a man in inescapable debt who decides to commit suicide. However, his attempt to hang himself from a bridge fails and he washes up on the shore of an unclaimed island, which happens to be in the middle of the Han river in Korea and is within city limits. Perhaps as a compensation for not having died, Hong voluntarily exiles himself from society to stay on the island. Meanwhile a woman in a high rise apartment in the city, who is an amateur astronomer, happens to spy Hong with her telescope. She begins studying him like an alien. More will ensue between them.
