Spring in My Hometown
(Areumdawoon sheejul)

by LEE Kwang-mo

The summer of 1952, at the height of Korean War. Sungmin and Changhee are best friends. They witness something terrible that would have preferred not to know; at a deserted mill, Changhee’s mother welcomes a G.I. while Sungmin’s father stands guard as her pimp. Changhee is determined to seek revenge. The next day, without so much as a word to Sungmin, he disappears after setting tire to the mill while a G.I. and a Korean prostitute make love.
A year goes by. The horribly bloated body of a young boy is discovered in a swamp near the mill…
