Exit is a 2019 South Korean disaster action comedy film directed by Lee Sang-geun, starring Jo Jung-suk and Im Yoon-ah.[3][4][5][6]


Yong-Nam (Jo Jung-suk) {{[7]}} one of the best rock climbers in college but hasn't had much luck elsewhere after graduation. He has failed to get a job for many years and has to rely on his parents just to get by. For his mother's 70th birthday, he insisted on having the party at Dream Garden because his old crush, Eui-Ju (Im Yoon-a) works there.
