It takes all kinds of communities to make our world and a prison one is not the kind we often imagine when hearing the word.

2017/11/18 | | Permalink

Go-hee (played by Kim Hyang-gi) is a teenage girl just starting high school. That's pretty bad on its own, but a lot of factors are working against her. In the first place she has a horribly goofy name- because her surname is Ho, anytime anyone addresses Go-hee by her full name, it sounds like they're calling her a loser (Hogu). Go-hee's family is poor enough that she has to help at their fried chicken business to make ends meet. Then, just to make matters, Go-hee's boyfriend breaks up with her...More

In "Becoming Who I Was", we see in documentary form the daily life of one such child in a small village in Northern India. Directly, we see the contradiction of this child being incredibly wise and yet obviously...still just a child...More

2017/11/18 | | Permalink

Can mentally challenged adults survive on their own? Elderly mother Ae-soon (played by Go Doo-shim), rather understandably, is skeptical of the prospect. She has had to take care of In-gyoo (played by Kim Sung-kyun) her whole life, and he never appears to have advanced beyond the mentality of a spoiled child. In "The Preparation" Ae-soon is forced, through the plot device of her own mortality, to confront the possibility that she's wrong. Really it's more of a hope, considering how awful the alternatives are...More
