Happy Funeral Director

But nobody likes a funeral director.

Written and Directed by CHANG Mun II



Do you have a room?

How much is it?

Take 5,000 Won off.

Then get me an extra drink at least.

Who is it!

Palace Motel

Look, don't mess around

and come back quick.

What are you, my man?

And what's with those sunglasses

in the middle of the night! Dork.

Did you order coffee?

No? He said two cups to room 201.

Was it 202?


How does coffee taste

after almost dying? Great?

You know that funeral parlor

across the street?

Nakcheon Funeral Home?

Do you know if they're hiring?

I don't know. Oh, right.

The old man ran into a telephone pole

on his bike.

They might be hiring.

So tell me. Your blood type is O, right?

90% of people

with O blood type hang themselves.

No, I'm type A.

No, type A takes sleeping pills.

You must be different.

Who are you?

What's going on? What are you doing?

You said room 202. Get out now.

You want to own a video arcade?

Sell our land?

- You're too sick to work.

- There's Daesik.

He can work.

- You need at least two people.

- That's why I told you to come.

You want me to be an undertaker?

I faint at the sight of a corpse.

Oh, when?

When his father died.

That's because it was his father.

Grandfather thinks you have to be

an undertaker to be a real man.

But I am a man!

What do you think I am, a rabbit?

A goldfish? Yeah, I'm a rabbit.

I'm going to kill you, you little brat.

You listen to me before I really kill you.

But I do listen to you.

At least show an effort.

You can run away when he pays off

some of your debts.

Don't even mention the video arcade again.

I'll rip your mouth open.

Aunt, I can't do it no matter what.


Nobody wants to do it, unless he's crazy.

I'm not here because of a death.

I want to learn funeral work.

You want to learn undertaking?

This one doesn't want to learn, but...

There's all sorts.

The work is hard.

I've done just about everthing.

You can do anything if you think of dying.

But people don't die often around here.

There hasn't been a single death

for a year.


With the new hospital, we don't have work.

There has to be a death for you

to learn something.

Well, now that I'm here,

people will start dying.

I think I cause deaths.

When I go up on a roof to work,

someone falls off.

If I work in a tunnel, it collapses.

And that's not all.

Hey! Hey! What are you doing?

I sleep naked.

There's all sorts. All sorts...

I heard you talking earlier,

you have debts?

Hey, put your dick away!

Oh, how comfortable.

Did you make this?

Try it. How are we supposed to eat this?

- It tastes good.

- Why are you eating here?

My dad told me to.

Did he send you to learn to work

or to save food costs?

You eat too much. Your dad is so stupid.

If his son is too stupid to work

he should make him study.

Why did he send him to learn

about undertaking?

Undertaking is no joke.

Why are you talking bad about my father

when I'm eating?


You don't like me

talking about your father?

You're making me lose my appetite.


I heard that undertakers

value traditional etiquette.

Does that refer to ancient

Chinese etiquette?

Let's eat.

Excessive luxury is not proper etiquette.

How much do burial clothes cost?
