 The title of the performance that I watched was . This play which was directed by Cheong Jeong Rak and the cast of Kim Jeong Won, Kim Eun Jeong, Jeon Ah Hee and 5 others pictures a story of a family with a miserable story and a volunteer who has visited the family.
Daon who was shocked by her mother who has run away from home abandoning her child and husband gets aphasia. As the happy moments break apart, Daon’s father also can’t recover from the shock and lives on a gloomy life with betrayal and vain. In the darkness of this world Daon and her father Dojin depend on themselves and refuse the help from the outside world.
A visit from a volunteer organization. The mistake of Hayan who came to volunteer at Daon’s house and the incident. Dojin’s space gets invaded through this incident. Dojin and Daon refuse the help of Hayan the volunteer, but they open their heart themselves due to Hayan’s sincere heart. They become friends like that. And with the effort of Hayan, Dojin also opens the door to his heart. The three people spend the winter and Hayan with Dojin open the doors of their hearts that they don’t even know…..

On 12 July at 8 PM, and on 13 July at 4 PM, directed by Lee Dang Geum, from 16 to 17 July at 8 PM directed by Hwang Yoon Dong are featured, so it’s pretty fun choosing what to watch according to your taste. For inquiries of reservation, you can call (051)611-8518 (Space Small Theater), and you can book the tickets at Interpark and Sarang Ticket. The price is 20,000won for non-designated seats.

 Actually it’s not easy to put on an act in Korea. There isn’t any culture street of plays like Daehakno in Seoul, and the number of small theaters is only a few. Nowadays audiences are gathering to some degree, but it is not easy to expect so much fame. However there are people that don’t give up nevertheless. There are those who plant the seed called plays and grow them with passion on this rough ground. This strong energy can make your day special. On a tedious evening, why don’t you fill it with plays from time to time? It won’t betray your expectations.
