Synopsis
At one idle night in the summer, poor housemates, Jae-ho, Kyeong-soon, and Hong-chan order a fried chicken, breaking up a piggy saving box. But not a fried chicken but a pock hock from a pock hock houseis delivered. Chicken followed after tells that he fried his son of chicken boy to bring for sale.
Director's Note
Man live by eating others. Whether one feels sad, feels indifferently or feels guilty, it is not changed. It is obviously and strongly happening among the class in contemporary Korean society. I wanted to direct the terrible but hilarious situation as a black comedy.
