Mr. Park: "Mr. Park raises his three children by repairing briquette stoves. Although ignorant and stubborn, he possesses a good heart. He is not happy that his first daughter, Yong-sun, is seeing Jae-cheon, who has no job and an uncertain future ahead of him. Mr. Park is also not pleased with the fact that his second daughter, Myeong-sun, is seeing Ju-sik, who is from a rich family. Only his son, Yong-beom, is the apple of his eye because he is diligent and works hard at a pharmaceutical company. However, he is disappointed to hear that his son has to relocate to an overseas branch office. One day, Mr. Park is humiliated by Ju-sik's aunt, who says he is poor and uneducated, but he endures it for Myeong-sun's sake. Eventually, he approves of Yong-beom's relocation and his two daughters' relationships."--Container.
"Modernization has been an important subject for Korea in the last century. Modernization was exchangeable with economic development and industrialization, and people took part on the road to achieve the so-called "Miracle on the Han River." Consequently, Korea was accredited as one of the rare countries that accomplished rapid economic growth. The shadow, however, was cast deeply along with the fast track of the development, and Korean society is now facing all problems great and small. It is meaningful to look back at the process of Korean modernization and to view various aspects of the modern represented in the films. These endeavors bring us beyond the mere appreciation of the past in a retrospective fashion and provide us a chance to make a rendezvous of the past with the present and that of the present with the past. The films selected from each period reveal the problems, values, and subconsciousness of the time, and they function as referential frameworks for each other, which bring you the joy of new discoveries."--Commentary book.
