Please let me introduce Beak Hee-soo,

Korea's most prolific woman writer,



This is your fourth

best-selling book in a row,

Personally, I envy the fact that

you write a new story every time,

Could you please give us a hint?

On how you write your books?

I always jot down notes,

I write the people and places first

and then think about them.

That's how I build them.

If I have an idea to write a story,

I would attach the right characters.

Then they become Iike real people,

With behaviors and thoughts.

I just write the story.

You must be very busy,

With no time to rest.

Even my daughter and

husband are in my notes.

They're all materials.

Some people I met today.

Could also be included.

This new book has been a bestseller

for three weeks in a row.

Apart from your previous works,

How did you write...?


What's going on?

What's the matter?

How could you do this?

You really don't trust me?

I've told you many times already.

PIease trust me.

Don't bring that up again,

You never even tried to Iisten.

I've never read that book.

I swear!

How long will you keep this up?

You could've made a mistake,


I never make mistakes.

Want me to tell you again?

It was submitted for you to judge,

You read that book!

So you're saying that

I plagiarized?

Quiet! Shut up!

Let's stop,

I'm asking you out of all people.

- Please, stop this,

- Don't you understand me?

You get too obsessed with things,

Just say that you didn't know,

or that it was unintentional!

Written and directed by

LEE Jeong-ho

Baek Hee-soo has written many

Bestsellers for the last 20 years,

But it's been confirmed that

she has plagiarized her latest work,

It was one of the books she

read during a writing competition,

Two years later

It'II be okay once we get there.

Did you see the picture?

This is very important to Mom.

I need a quiet place with no people.

You understand, right?

Are you going to divorce Dad?

Is it because of me?


Grown-ups, you see...

Sometimes they don't

want to Iive together.

Then is it because of Mom?

What are you doing?


Your daughter is very pretty.

By any chance,

are you the writer from Seoul?

But I thought you were

coming here tomorrow.

Oh no!

Don't worry about this.


You bastard,

the memorial are already over.

The writer is here!


The writer! She's here!

How are you, Ma'am?

What a surprise!

When did you come?

It's the writer from Seoul!

She's beautiful!

PIease come have some food.

Stop talking and go set up a seat.

Hurry and get the food ready.

We ran out of meat.

What do you mean we ran out?

I told you to prepare it

in advance, you idiot!

Shut up and escort her.

We prepared some food

for a memorial service.

Take a Iook at this!

I told him to hang

that up yesterday.

Welcome, Writer Park Hee-soo!

The wind is blowing too much.

We planned to have that

ready before you came.

What's the use now?

I fixed up the house

as much as I could.

It Iooks old, doesn't it?

This house is over sixty years old.

After Korea's independence,

an American missionary named Bates

raised orphans here during the war.

There's no villa Iike this in Korea.

So many writers

from Seoul came here.

The house repairs are almost done.

The roof needs a Iittle work.

When it rains, it may Ieak.

That plastic is only temporary.

Our youth group will come

fix it in a few days.

PIease don't Iet anyone

interrupt me while I'm here.

But we don't know when it'II rain.

No one can defy heaven's will.

Yeah, can't deny the will of heaven.

You damn woman!
