You can hear the lovesick heartbreak all over Seoul when petulant, over-emotional Ha-neul has to break up with his uptight and closeted boyfriend Jeong-min—and leave their beloved cat Ari behind. As in any classic boy-loses-boy (and cat) rom-com, who comes to the rescue but the BFF? Ha-neul gets sympathy, fashion advice and a place to crash on a rooftop from his bestie, “BongBong,” a rising online celebrity who has his own commitment issues, as he dodges the earnest wooings of a dogged fanboy.

Even when both friends have to confront some more serious life choices and dramatic events, Made on the Rooftop, the latest feature from director Kim Jho Gwang-soo (Two Weddings and a Funeral, Frameline37), manages to toggle breezily between farce and sentimental charm, opening a candy-colored window onto a rooftop world of twentysomething friends who just want to find love.
