Scarlet Innocence

Synopsis: 20-year old Deokee's quiet small-town life gets exciting when a former university professor, Hak-kyu, moves in, running from a sexual harassment allegation. Mutual attraction leads the pair into a lusty affair but when the fall semester begins, Hak-kyu returns to his family in the city. Deokee refuses to let the relationship die, and a confrontation between them turns tragic when Hak-kyu's wife commits suicide. 8 years later, Hak-kyu, now blind and estranged from his daughter Chungee, befriends a new neighbor: Se-jung. He gladly accepts her help and Chungee becomes attached to her, neither realizing she is in fact Deokee and that she is on a quest to destroy them. Her plan sets off a vengeance-fueled chain of events that ultimately sets the three bitter, angry and desperate schemers on a twisting collision course with each other.

These scentless petals covering

the road endlessly make me forget

why I decided to come here.

When a ridiculous misunderstanding forced me

to leave the school

I just wanted to hide

where nobody could find me.

I hoped to find something pure

that is vanishing from me,

to prove myself writing a novel

with a new story I find there.

But my strong intention faded away

as soon as I arrived.

The old and weary mood this town held

almost choked me.

What is this kid?

Never seen a man in a suit?

She stared me

with the inquisitive eyes.

That's how I met her.


He's too young to be a professor.

Guess he had a drink. Look at his ruddy cheeks.

You know the writer...

needs a drink to talk or write on something.


- You want to write novels?


You think anyone can write one?

That's why we're here to learn.

There's an expression called literary youth.

But no such thing like literary old.

Do you know why?

You are telling we old folks

don't deserve writing?

Yes, the old can: write.

They can only keep a diary.

The old man with an old mind

only can write corny things.

Only the one with an open mind

can do the literature.

So if you want to write novels,

you need to be young at heart again.

You need to love!

At our age? How?

But it sounds good!

- Hello.

-You're coming home now?

Tofu and zucchini, please.



Just now. What do want to get?

Tofu and zucchini?

I got them already. Let's go.

Will make you delicious bean paste stew.

You raised Deokee well. So pretty and filial.

You must be proud!

- Good night.

-Good night.

Mom, store owner told me

this town will be redeveloped.

So are we getting lots of compensation?

Well...guess it would some.

Much enough to move to Seoul?

What do you think?

I hope the money is big enough

for your wedding.

My wedding? No kidding!

You should get married

when you meet a decent guy.

If there is a decent guy,

I need to date him first.

But problem is we can't find a decent man here.

The store owner will set you up

on a blind date.

A guy working at a car company.

A car company?


You don't get married for fun!

Are you worried about me?

Don't worry.

I won't live like this forever.

I believe in you.

The machine is too old.

It needs some bashing once in a while.

What do you want to ride?


The rides in this park. Which one?

I didn't come for that.

Are you working here?

Right there.

At the ticket office, I see.

I've never seen a small amusement park

like this.

They'll tear it down next year

and will build a public park.

Nobody came to ride in full dress like you.

I'm not here for the ride,

but for the work.

At the lifelong education center.

No one's dressed up there, either.

I remember!

You were in front of the store yesterday.

So are you a professor?


- Literature writing class.


Thought that class would be really interesting.

She didn't get along with anyone,

and responded to no one.

She simply existed there still and sound.

As if she couldn't see

or hear anything.

She was cowering like a caterpillar

waiting for the spring with every fiber

of her body.

The time she would transform

into a beautiful being.

As you are here, you should have a drink.

Need to leave soon.

Of course, you must be busy writing.

But a drink could smooth your writing.

- Just one glass!

-Then just one.

There you go.
