Farewell My Darling


What a strange dream

to have in broad daylight.


Father is so quiet.

When he doesn't have any money,

he can't think of anything to do.

If I die, I'll never hear about it,

damn it.

Why don't you go into town today?

- Is anything wrong?

- No.

If there's anything in particular

you want to eat, please let me know.

Don't bother.


You don't have to do that.

I've got money.

Take it.

What would you like to eat?

I'll pick it up for you.

I don't want anything.


See you later, Father.

Father, Don't hang around the coffee

shop for so long.

You've got to fix the pedal.



- Do we need the slate over here?

- Well...

Do we need the slate?

- No, let's just do a run-through.

- OK.

Stand-by, ready, Action!

You can feel the rhythm.

You can touch it.

Call from home.

Hello? When?

What time?

What's going on?

Am I dying?

If I die here, it'll be really

bad for my kid.

You bastards!

I must go home. Take me home!

Look over there. A man's soul is

getting out of his house.



It looks like Mr. Park's soul!

- Does it?

- Let's go there.

How much?

Are you out of your mind?

Good morning.

You're not the only son.

They know you don't make

enough money as a director.

Coffee, please.

Mr. Kim, one coffee.

Why would I take a plane that's

going to crash?

Just worry about yourself,

not me. Bye.

- What's the matter?

- Dad died.


Why do you keep calling?

It'll just take a week.

I don't want you to have to make

this long trip just to go to a funeral.

Don't say anything at the studio,

just rearrange the schedule.

I'm OK. I'll relax and

listen to some music.

Day One Yim-Jong, Su-Si, Ko-Bok

Brother! Oh, no.

I won't believe it until

I see it myself.

Alas, Alas, My brother!

Brace yourself.

I'll have the board for

the dead ready.

Call her in Pusan.

Even if she's no good,

she's still his daughter.

If there is anyone who has to

know his death,

let him know it

as soon as possible.

And you should take charge of

the funeral arrangements.

OK. We have to accept his death.

Let's do welcome the people

from the other world.

Stop crying and put some water

on for the rice.

Hurry up.

- How could this happen?

- Hurry up.

I don't believe it.

How could you die so soon?

My brother. I won't believe it until

I see him myself.

Wait, wait!

You can't go like this.

Please open your eyes.

I'm your sister.

No, no.

No, no.

Who the hell is this?

I'm the man she lives with.

What? Chan-suk's brother?

What's up?

Did Dad change his mind?

What did you say?

He died?

I can't go. I can't go.

You silly girl. Why can't you go?

Why won't you go?

Who knows, maybe your father

left you some money.

I am the chief mourner.

Father's soul has left his body,

but I'm still alive.

Now I just have to make it

through the funeral.

ln my mind the camera rolls.

I shoot the living and the dead.

And... once more. Ready.


Take one, cut four,

scene seventeen.


Park Man-dol is returning to

the other world,

Dukchon-lee, Kawhae-myon, Hapchon-gun,

South Kyongsan Province, Korea.

Bring a folding screen.

Testing... testing. Ah! Is it on?

I have an announcement to make.

One of the respected citizen of

our village

Has just passed away...

One of the respected citizen of

our village

Has just passed away...

This is a great loss,

We mourn his death

With our beautiful customs

we'll grieve for his death.

Be careful and don't mess up.

Hey, look here.

There's no straw sandals or steamed rice.

Get them over here.

What's wrong?

You know there are three people
