Goofs

In one scene before donating blood 3 guys are seen drawing water from a stream with something that looked like a very modern tetra pack with its top cut off. Similar to what we get our milk and juice in. As the film starts in 1953 they cannot possibly had such a thing in Korea. Such a plastic coated pack was just invented and didn't resemble what they were using. Its highly unlikely that those guys would have access to such a sophisticated package. See more »

User Reviews

 
Basically faithful to the original works
19 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

Basically faithful to the original works, unfortunately, the social atmosphere and history of Korea are always worse. The protagonist is still relatively in place to deduce the situation of small people struggling to live hard. Besides, Yile is really good.
