earnings from the street stalls, is now enjoying the twilight of her life without worrying about
feeding her children with.
In the late afternoon, friends gather at Jong-boon's stall. Jong-boon and friends trim chives, steam
corns, and bake rice cakes.
Trot songs flow in the stall and the story of Jong-boon's Thug Life' goes on.

Program Note

Being born as someone's daughter, being someone's wife, and becoming someone's mother - some tell you that it is the natural way of life, while some tell you that it is an antiquated tradition and you should live your life as you please. But people often forget; the 'role' does not make the person playing the 'role' disappear, and living every moment of your life with devotion makes a person strong. Kim Jong Boon was not afraid when everyone else were, and she has faced what everyone else sought to avoid. That's .
