Set in the 1940's when Korea was under Japanese occupation. Korean people were banned from speaking their own language during that time. Pan Soo has been imprisoned several times and it is nothing special for him to go there. He does not know how to read or write the Korean language. One day, he steals Jung Hwan’s bag to help pay for his son's tuition fee. Jung Hwan is the son of a wealthy Korean family who is pro-Japanese. Yet, Jung Hwan is a representative of the Korean Language Society. By meeting Jung Hwan, Pan Soo's life soon changes. They work together to publish a Korean language dictionary.

Nothing but respect

I love movies based on historical events so this one was right up my alley. Yoo Hae Jin is great once again (like everything he does) but so is the rest of the cast. Very touching, sad, funny even, a mix of emotions. After watching I feel humbled and have nothing but respect for their ancestors.
It's unbelievable how random life can be and how their gigantic task could have been in vain if weren't for pure luck (or the Heavens maybe).
I have visited Seodaemun prison where the political prisoners were held and tortured, and this movie refers to it, I recommend everyone interested in Korean history to pay a visit.
The movie was pure joy, although very sad story.

I really liked this movie. I felt the actors portrayed their roles well. I was touched And was crying too cause I ddnt know how much effort there was trying to make a dictionary during world War II. The Setup was very nice. Storyline was pure and easy not dragging. Highlighting normal illiterate Koreans at that time. I had always been a fan of war movies and series during joseon period and during the Japanese colonization, this is another inspiring side story. Kudos to the cast!
