  “The Road Called Life” is an animated film based on three famous Korean short stories.

WHEN BUCKWHEAT FLOWERS BLOOM

Mr. Heo is a middle-aged itinerant vender, who goes market to market to sell his products with his friend, Mr. Jo. Heo has never had a serious relationship with a woman, despite his age, and has no family. The only memory he has and cherishes is about the night in Bongpyeong when he met a woman and spent the night with her. He tells this story to his friend Jo over and over again on their journey. And one night, under a luminous moon, Heo and Jo walks on a mountain road covered with full-blown buckwheat flowers, with a young itinerant vendor, Dong-i, who has decided to travel with them for a moment. Naturally, Heo repeats his story once again, and Dong-i tells the story of his mother. She is from Bongpyeong, but she had to leave her hometown after she had sex with a stranger and got pregnant with her son, Dong-i. Heo listens to the story carefully until he trips and falls into a creek. Dong-i carries Heo on his back, and Heo feels 'the warmth sinking deep into his bone.' Then he finds out that Dong-i is left-handed, just like himself.

A Lucky Day

 

One Lucky Day is a 1924 realistic novel written by Hyun Jin-geon, first published by Gaebyeok. One rainy day, "good luck" comes to the old rickshaw-porter Kim, who has not seen money for ten days because of bad luck. He is able to get two customers and earn 80 jeon in the morning alone. While going back home, he is glad that he could buy the seolleongtang that his severely ill wife wanted so much. More good luck strikes when he finds a student who pays 1 won and 50 jeon for a ride.

As he is pulling the rickshaw in high spirits because of his good luck, he remembers that his wife had said, "Please do not go out today," and his mood is dampened. Nevertheless, after making another round of negotiations with his customers and earning money, he visits a roadside bar to celebrate his unexpected earnings.

As he gets drunk in the lively atmosphere of a warm bar, old Kim tries not to have ominous thoughts about his wife, throwing away the "resentful money" and crying and laughing like crazy.

At last, when a heavily drunk old Kim returns home after buying the seolleongtang for his wife, he finds her already dead; his baby, who was sucking the mother's nipple, was waiting for him. Old Kim's seemingly fortunate day ends with him crying alone.
