Review

“Damage(てまち)” is a Japanese slang that means that there is no work. 59-year-old Jeongtae, who works as a carpenter at a construction site, starts drinking assuming there will be no work as it kept on raining since dawn. Rain finally stops before 9 a.m. and Jeongtae receives a phone call rushing him to come to work. In order to receive the next work, they have to meet the construction schedule. Jeongtae has already emptied several bottles of soju. It is not easy to take a taxi or public transportation for someone who is staggering with a tool bag wearing muddy shoes. Upset Jeongtae continues to drink more, and eventually policemen are brought in. This middle-aged man who is intoxicated and swearing is now considered a threat. On Jeongtae’s hard commute, there lies our society’s viewpoints toward the manual laborers and elder generation alienated by digital information. The performance by stage actor LEE Songhee, who has been active in Daegu, attracts attention. [NA Wonjeong]
