Sad Movie

This year, 32 public libraries are

scheduled to open in Seoul.

The city announced it as part of

a plan to introduce 48 libraries,

First, let's have a meeting

regarding the design.

When are you available?

And now, Hong has a report

on today's weather.

When you go out today,

be sure to take an umbrella.

We are expecting showers today.

The rain should cool down this

unseasonably early heat.

After the showers pass...

It'll rain today.




except Snow White & 7 Dwarfs!

Help me out. If this keeps up,

our son will be uncontrollable.

Because it keeps getting

more serious!

How can you be so

laid back about this?

He's your son too, isn't he?

All you do is accuse me

of being overbearing.

Oh, whatever!

It's because you never seem to

care about anything.

Okay. I have an incoming call.

Let's talk at home.

Yes, Ms. Kim. How are you?

This is Hwi-chan's picture diary.

Take a look.

These days especially,

he seems to have many

complaints about you.

I'm aware that much of what

he writes are lies, but...

- I need to see my son.

- But, he's in another class now.

Maybe later, you should talk

in a quieter environment.

Please sit down.

I need to go. I'm sorry.

Ms. Eom!

What is this money for?

Here is today's weather forecast.

Heavy clouds and showers

are expected tonight.

How was it?

Was it okay?

Too slow.

It'll be night and raining

by the time you finish.

And smile, won't you?

Good, good.


Let's do it again.

I can't hear you.

Once more, please?

I'm your only sister!

So you're clumsy, aren't you?

You're a lousy artist,

but your face is well-drawn.

I didn't know we had

such a cutie in our park.

Oh? This...

How did you know it was mine?

Is there any other artist

around here, dummy?

It's all smudged.

Tell me it's a very

important painting for you...

You could've just thrown it out.

But thanks anyway.

Damn! You punk!

I was going to be generous

since you're cute, but...

Well, I'll let you off this time

Today is your lucky day.

Bye, Bye, See ya!

Is this enough for

my sister-in-law's birthday?

- Sister-in-law?

- Yeah.

- Who?

- Su-eun.

Since when has my sister

been your sister-in-law?

We're not even married.

You who don't even have to propose...

Su-eun told me to call her that.

You're on your period

aren't you?

Should I cook seaweed soup

for her birthday? I'm good at it.

You fry up the beef,

add a dash of sesame oil,

you boil it with soaked

seaweed... fantastic!

She'll like it.

What do you think?

Let's rest a bit.

It's hard on you, isn't it?

Of course. You make me carry

these heavy bags.

Not that!

Then what?

Don't you think

you can take it easy?

- I am taking it easy now.

- You've been doing it a long time.

And worked harder than anyone.

What was that?

It means "I love you forever."

Doesn't it?

Sister-in-law taught me.

It means, "I love you,

so let me touch your breasts!"


Why do you want to know

my bra size?


- I never knew Su-eun was so dirty-minded.

- Get away from me!

Happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday dear Su-eun,

Happy birthday to you.

- Congratulations!

- Congratulations!

- Okay, in one shot!

- One shot!

One shot! One shot!

Bottoms up! Bottoms up!

My present?

You want more?

My present, my birthday present!

You think I'm still a kid?

These are really popular these days.

Then you wear it.

We spent all day looking for this.

Just keep it.

Quiet, both of you!

You're so loud

I can't understand anything.

Let me speak too.

What's his problem?

Sister-in-law, I'll give you a

better present than this.

How about a blind date?


With who?

Well, in my station,


No, No firemen.

- Wait, let me finish.

- Absolutely not. No way.

- Why are you so worked up?

- Fools... Don't I have a say in this?

Forget it. No.

I have a guy already.

A blind date is

the best present, right?


You have a boyfriend?

You do?


He's cute, isn't he?

Yeah, he's good-looking.

How'd she meet a guy like this?

- They look like a good couple, huh?

- Right.

Hey, Sister-in-law!

Stop! Stop! Wait a minute.

Time out!

Looks ridiculous, huh?

- It was a mistake! Coach, save me!

- You're dead meat! Come here, you bastard!

Get over here, you bastard!

It was a misunderstanding!

The ministry of education requested

proper courtesies regarding cellphones.

They asked students to turn off

their cellphones in libraries,

classes, hospitals and concerts and...


- Mom!

- Huh?

Aren't you going to let me out?

What's wrong?

Does your stomach hurt?

No... I'm okay.

Should I drive?

You don't even have a license.

You know what I mean.

It's frustrating, unnerving,

- scary, sad, and futile.

- What is?


You know how long it's been?

Three years.

But in those three years,

nothing has changed.

I worked here part-time back then

and I work here part-time now.

You've changed...

you've grown much prettier.

You had no job then

and you don't have one now.

What drives me crazy is,

in the future I'll still be here,

and you'll still be unemployed.

Do you need a bag?

It costs 50 won.

- The total is 24 dollars and 80 cents.

- Wait a bit more, give me a chance.

- I know I can do better.

- I've been waiting three years.

Hurry up and pay.

Will this work?

I think so...

- Let's break up.

- Why, Sook-hyun?

- We've made it this far. Just...
