Korean classic films - The most usual beings in South Korea.

Hello, everyone.

I am a new comer here, but unfortunately I couldn't join you last week to see Indian film.
I would like to introduce my screenings in Kreuzberg this week.
I am the organiser and curator.
Some details are below.
Usual lives succeed the age of wars.
The myth of economic development is based on these usual lives and makes them hidden.
Perhaps this situation is so global that you could find out after modernization and at present.

By the way, we are now aware of the necessity to wave at the usualness behind the myths, which is the truth.
This was the life of Germany, Japan and South Korea.
This is the life of China and Vietnam.
This would be the story of Egypt and Tunisia in future.

The title of these screenings is from a pop-song of south Korea.
“ I am one of the most usual beings, found anywhere,
I cannot make any impressions on you,
I am one of the most usual beings, found useless,
I cannot hear any voices from you.” - Onnine Ibalgwan (언니네이발관, Sister's Barbershop)

This cycle is composed by 6 Korean classic films which carry the lives of the most usual beings after World War II and Korean Civil war from 50s to 90s. The drama about ‘the most usual beings’ by name.

- synopsis
A comic book store in Garibong-dong is run by a beautiful woman (Choi Myoung-gil) better known as Madam. This store stays open late into the night, thus attracting varied types of people. Three men hide in this comic book store coincidentally. Dong-pal (Choi Jae-sung) is a gangster who put himself in trouble. Ki-young is a labor agitator, and Eugene (Lee Ji-hyoung) is a guy who avoids public facilities due to a martial arts novel he wrote as a part-time job. Dong-pal attempts to contact Jjako, a guy who disappeared after causing trouble together with Dong-pal only to end up in more trouble. And Eugene falls in love with Miss Oh, a teashop girl who he met at the comic book store. Meanwhile, Dong-pal has a crush on Madam and rapes her when they are all alone. After the incident, Madam expresses contempt toward him and ignores him. But still, Dong-pal isn't happy about Madam being nice to Ki-young.
