Pained

Directed by Kwak Kyung-taek
22 September 2014

Debt collector Nam-soon loses all sense of pain after a traumatic accident during his youth. Street vendor, Dong-hyun, suffers from severe hemophilia, a disorder that impedes the body’s ability to stop bleeding. For Dong-hyun, even the most minor of injuries could be deadly. Dong-hyun is left homeless after Nam-soon collects all of the money that she owes in debt. Nam-soon, who pities her, decides to take her in. As the two grow closer, Nam-soon suddenly begins to lose his lifelong insensitivity to pain and the hurt of a lifetime washes over him. Together, these two lonely souls learn what it means to hurt and to hope again.
