Bittersweet Joke

.

In Korea, the term “unwed mother” is associated with irresponsibility and infidelity. Despite social prejudice and financial hardship, nowadays more Korean women are choosing to raise their children in fatherless homes rather than aborting their babies or giving them up for adoption. Hyungsook hasn’t seen her parents for six years because she had a child without being married. Her son, Junseo isn’t allowed to hang out with his best friend any more because he is a child of an unwed mother. The film examines the gap between their notions of family and traditional Korean values.
