Legend of Miryang1
  • 한국환경영화의 흐름-포커스
Synopsis “I live in Miryang, the town of sunlight. With its clean air and water, Miryang was a perfect place to take a rest. However, my life nowadays became so sad and bitter. Transmission towers, called 765 something, are said to be built in the neighborhood, and it is making so much trouble. Last year, an old man who lived in another town killed himself because of it. And I, trying to stop the construction people but was dragged around by young men far below my age, getting insulted with harsh words I'd never heard before. I still have the scars from being beaten by them back then. It's been 8 years since I started the fight against it. 8 years! It's quite a long story, but, would you like to listen to it?”.
