At a new construction site in Seoul yesterday...

CHUN Woo-hee

an old album has been discovered.

an old album has been discovered.

YOO Yeon-seok

The album dates back to 1944.

It's by a faceless singer,

SEO Yeon-hee, entitled...

JOSEON'S HEAR Look forward to it being restored soon.

You're listening to Classic Oldies.


SEO Yeon-hee...


I first met her at the Agency which no longer exists.


I first met her at the Agency

which no longer exists.


One, two!

Though occupied by Japan,

restaurants flourished.

And artists were needed.

Agencies represented artists

to give performances.

And some trained young girls

and raised them as artists.

The peony is the queen of flowers

The sunflower is a loyal subject

Ye-hyang is all booked up.


Make note!


And Hang-a? Got it.


The apricot blossom is a child

The song So-yool just sang...

is the best of all traditional songs.

It's difficult to sing.

And demands the listener

to have noble ears.

Historically, those with tasteful ears...

have cherished this song

as the best of the best.

All your mouth can do is yawn?

Aren't you embarrassed before So-yool?

Where are your manners?

What did you eat to sing so well?

Breast milk.

Her mom was a master singer.

It's just a few lousy coins!

What's going on?

Where were the clothes?

It's your fault!

Our girls couldn't work yesterday!

So pay up!

I put the clothes on his rickshaw

on time to get delivered!

But the fool got lured into gambling...

Fine! I'll pay!

Bloody damn! It's just a few coins!

Come here! Go!

She grew without a mom.

She's good at chores.

Take her for 10 coins.



Let's say 5 coins.

She'll pay off the rest by working.

No, Dad!

You have no choice!

I don't need you.

The sailor sings in the distance

Like Madam LEE Nan-young too?

You're the rickshaw driver's girl?

What's your name?

Tell me?

SEO Yeon-hee. Why?

I'm JUNG So-yool.

We learn fun things here.

Wanna learn too? I can ask Mother.

You're an annoying girl.

Let's learn together?

She was as sharp as a cactus flower.

That's how we met.

And we became the closest of friends.

We're graduating! I could fly!

I won't get blue, will I?

Of course you'll get red!

But I'm worried...

If I get blue, I'll die!

Silly! You won't get blue!

Don't worry!

It'll be a pretty red one!

- SEO Geum-hong!

- Yes?


- KIM Ok-hyang!

- Yes.


SEO Yeon-hee!

Once you open the box,

you're no longer students.

You're official artists

on Daesung's roster.

Watch at all times

not to defame our agency.

Yes, Mother.

Now, open them.

- I'm so happy!

- Congratulations.

If you didn't get what you want...

Devote yourselves to further

training as artists.

- Understood?

- Yes, Mother.

Reds and oranges will have

pictures taken for our booklet.

Get ready and gather

by the pond.

Yes, sir.

- I told you.

- I'm so happy!

What about us?

What about you?

We don't get pictures taken?

You're blues!

You mean we're courtesans?


We didn't train hard for 4 years

to be prostitutes!

You must remember.

You are flowers that understand words.

Not only understand what people say...

but it means you know

literature and the arts.

Though of low status...

if you become skilled artists...

high officials will open

their eyes and ears...

and you'll bloom as

flowers that cannot be plucked.

Sell your talent, smiles, or bodies...

What's most important?

That you sell! Then what should you gain?



Food is not everything. Wrong!


That's why you're a courtesan.

You'll have all the rice

and clothes with this!

What is it, you ask?

A man's heart.

Nothing is more foolish

than trusting a man.

Though you go out and dance

and sing for them...

your performances are not just for them.

Then where is a man's heart?


Or here?




Be proud and gain men's hearts!

It means we're whores!

One, two...


Remember girls.


You are artists.

- Born and raised in the agency...

- Daesung booklet!

I knew nothing of the world outside.

I just practiced singing

traditional songs everyday.

But the age of traditional artists

was coming to an end.

The country was astir with modern songs.

Yeon-hee and I were also drawn by them.

It's Madam LEE Nan-young.

It's really her.

Seep into my heart

The bride by the port

Her clothes soaked with tears

Hello, San-wol.

Thank you for coming. Shall we?

Let's see the girls.

Daesung's booklet of artists.

She must be Cho-hyang's daughter.

I heard men are infatuated by her.

Like mother like daughter.

Allow me to serve you tonight.

How'd you spend your first pay?

Well... Nothing much.

Gave it all to your dad?

I knew you would.


What's this?

A gift!

Open it.


You wanted it.

Don't cry!

But I didn't get anything for you.


You're my one and only bosom friend.


I have to go out for a second.


What do you think?

About what?

That lady.

How does she look?


She's the best of all

the pictures you've sent so far.


Let's see.

With sparkling eyes and neat attire...

she must have the heart of an angel.

But her mouth...

What about the mouth?

Talking back!

Looks like she'll be stubborn.
