Humiliation and lack of social acceptation can lead to the most tragic decisions, that was exactly what happened to Joon Won. But is she sure, that she wants an ending like this? However, before the last breath, she needs to face her own self. (Source: Uru for Asian BL Poland | UruhaGazettE at MyDramaList) Edit Translation

IN MEMORY OF YOOK WOO DANG (1984-2003)

That’s what it says at the end of this short film, so I read about him. Yook Woo Dang is the pen name of Yun Hyon-seok, a South Korean LGBT poet-writer-activist. He took his own life in protest against discrimination against gays in South Korea.

The short film is also about contemplating suicide. Jin Joon Won is bullied because he is gay. The girl who he fights with is not his girlfriend but his true self, which he blames for his troubles. But he makes peace with her (or himself) before attempting to end his life.

The initial scene in which Jin Joon Won is eating lots of fried chicken, to me, shows that he is not enjoying what he is doing anymore. He is eating, yes, but his eyes are blank and his mind is not in it.

This 12-minute film says a lot in such a short time. Acting is good, and so is the direction, cinematography, editing and overall look. Definitely worth a rewatch.

The lead actor here, Yoo Jun, is also lead in COLOR RUSH, another great show (this one is a BL series of 8 episodes) from South Korea.

The way the story was told

It is very sad to known how much this kid has to deal with about his sexuality and then to get bullied by some bastards excuse my language but I hate that this is what happens in real life and it is really just sad and to not have support and have to face this yourself is so hard and the fact that it got to the point where he wanted to kill himself at least he didn't die because he life is worth it and he is worth it to or her what ever she/he prefers to be. the fact also that this is to show in memory of Yook Woo Dang and may he rest in peace he story was told in this film of how hard life hits you when you are seen as different and not normal sad to know this is the kind of world we live in. He deserved much better and hopefully he is glad to see some change in the world we live in today and that this is what he wanted.
