A poetry doesn't say everything explicitly. If you want to fully feel what a poetry says, you must be ready to sympathize to the poetry. If you are not, just like a person who left his/her review here without any understanding, you would never got why the poetry has been written and what the poetry is saying.
YUN Dong-ju died at 27 and he had never published a collection of poem during his life. However, he is one of the most well-known poet in Korea and has been praised as one of the greatest poet who uses Korean in the most beautiful way. He was ashamed of himself because he lived in barbarous days for Korean and he did not easily accept how he could write a poetry in the dark ages. He regretted he hadn't done more active resistance against Japanese Imperialism as much as SONG Mong-gyu, his cousin. friend, and company, had done.
The movie follows their story. This movie might look like not so much kind as a poem is not. However, if you calm down and listen to the narratives of YUN's poem, you would be able to sympathize to the pain of YUN as an intelligent student of a colonized country, as a person who had competitive spirit against his best friend, and as a poet who was not allowed to write a poem in his mother language.
