In Love and War

Synopsis: Young Park Seol-Hee is eagerly planning her wedding to a young anti-Communist activist when the North Koreans invade. Her fiancé is forced to flee, leaving her behind with her family in their tiny, rural South Korean village. Rather than resist the North Korean regiment that comes to occupy the area, the townspeople (to Seol-Hee's dismay) decide to cooperate with them in order to ensure their own survival. The North Koreans, however, turn out not to be all that Seol-Hee expected. She soon realizes that there is a history between her family and that of the regiment's leader, Lieutenant Kim Jeong-woong. In between the hilarious day to day antics of Seol-Hee's eccentric family and the hard realities of war, the attachment between Seol-Hee and Jeong-woong grows. As the occupation continues, Jeong-woong becomes torn between trying to follow the increasingly harsh orders from his general and protecting the people that he has come to love and care for so much.

By the way, Sis!

You love Taek-su a lot,

don't you?

'Love'? That sounds absurd.

Then you're marrying him

not out of love?

That's enough!

When you and I were young

- Stop it!

- My love, Taek-su


Oh my!

I'm sorry.

Are you okay?

What are you doing?

What if someone sees us?

Who cares?

What is that?

Is it a toilet or a pot?

- Dae-shik!

- Yes, Master.

Carefully carry this for her.

Of course, Master.

Here we go!

What about me?

Don't run!

You'll regret it if you fall!

You're so lucky Sul-hee.

Shall I get married again?

So... mom rode in this?

That was the best ride

during those times.

Breaking news.

At dawn, the monstrous

North Korean soldiers attacked...

Our brave soldieries...


Citizens, do not be afraid...

What is he saying?

He said that the commies barged in.

But our soldiers destroyed them.

So we shouldn't worry.

I was afraid that Sul-hee's

wedding wouldn't happen.

Don't speak such nonsense.

Don't you know Dr. Rhee Seung-man?

He got a doctorate for

getting rid of commies.

That's not the doctor that I know.

You're just an herb digger,

so you don't know crap.

Whether it's a commie or a Nazi,

he converts them all!

I don't know crap for an herb digger?

One, two, three!

- Don't lift it!

- No!

I told you not to lift it!

Are you okay?

But I've been on a diet lately.

This thing is too weak.

I told you to change

that wooden arm for ages.

But you always pick

those useless roots.

This isn't a useless root.

It's a wild ginseng!

Then it must go well

with those potatoes.

You two will get into a fight.

He's just overreacting.

It's not worth fighting for.

Now, since we're all here,

let's talk about the wedding.

Yes, go ahead.

So you take the bride's gifts.


Suk-ho, you take care of the lantern.

How could you stuff your face

when the mayor is talking?

How long do I have

to carry the lantern?


Send me off to get married, too!

Don't worry, kid.

I'll hook you up with Soon-hee.

What is she crying for?

She's no better.

I'm leaving!

Where are you going?

Where are you going?

That silly boy!

Wow, it's so soft.

Nam Taek-su

Mend my clothes out of silk

for my wedding, too, okay?

You'll dirty it!

Put it down!

You're always getting on my case.

That crazy cuckoo is back again.

Don't let the elders see you

and hurry on back.

You sit down.

I told you to sit down.

What if Taek-su does

something bad to her?

So don't interfere and just sit.

You're so blind.

What's wrong?

I'm just worried

before the wedding.

Nothing will happen, right?

You're so cute.


forgot who I am?

An Anti-commie Youth Group member.

Don't be afraid of the commies.

I'll protect you,

so don't worry, okay?

What if someone sees?

Who's going to see us here?


We didn't kiss, so come on out!

Are you crazy?

Where are you going?

Forget it!

Sul-hee, wait for me!

Go away!

I almost had a heart attack!

Wake up! There's big trouble!

You have to run away!

What are you fussing about?

Why don't you get what I'm saying?

Seoul is under attack!

You have to run away!

Run away at this hour?

Taek-soo's wedding is in two days!

They're supposedly killing everyone

from the Anti-commie Youth Group.


Taek-su is in serious danger!

I wandered today to the hill,


To watch the scene below the creek

And the creaking old mill Maggie

My love Maggie

Now, verse two!

You have to plant it in order!

Like this?

Just do as she says.

What book is she following?

Plant it in a row!

Like this?

Take a look!

We can plant double

if we do it in order like this!
