Example text

Into the middle distance streams a group of men and women. The “new face” is noticed by a GI who addresses Myŏng-­suk in English, fishing for her name. The flirtation between the two is juxtaposed with a long shot of Myŏng-­suk’s disabled ex-­fiancé, Kyŏng-­sik (Yun Il-­bong), limping toward the scene from afar. Laughing mischievously, Myŏng-­suk runs away from the GI who claims her for the evening. The scurrying woman and her Korean lover with crutches bump into each other and fall to the ground.
