Program Note

Namsu and Young-a are Korean residents in Japan. They try to kill themselves when parents objected to thier marriage. However, they finally get married with parental permission after many complications. Through separation and reunion of the couple being brought up in Korean families with different ideologies, the film talks about the stinging pain from the division of Korea and hope for the future at the same time. Known for its unusually positive portrayal of South Korea, this North Korean film indirectly embodies a longing for the reunification of the two Koreas by stressing the relationship between the two different families. Some of the scenes, which are rare to be found in a North Korean film, are so shocking that you would find them highly eye-catching.
