An Ordinary Father ss11 krk.jpg

Even though they share the same roof, Sujin’s brother lives in a life of his own, mostly in his room.

He doesn’t participate in family life willingly, and he has to be coaxed out for dinner. He also has very different hygiene standards, by the state of his room and how he regards crawling bugs in his food.

In comparison, Sujin lives a highly-functioning and productive life. In comparison, he’s a failure. And so deepens the chasm between her brother and father.

Helplessly, they bear witness to her father’s silence, and the unspoken and unsaid.
