Our young couple meet in wind-blown parks up on Namsan, the great hill south of the city. Down below is Myeongdong neighbourhood - overshadowed by the spire of a grand Cathedral, indifferent to the little lives of the inhabitants.

Back in 1968 the government censors hated the film and its too-realistic vision of life in the nation’s capital. They demanded changes; Lee and colleagues risked their necks by refusing. So the film was not even listed on his official filmography and shelved until its lucky rediscovery by the Korean Film Archive in 2005. (MM)
