The story of all of us #Kim Ji Young, Born 1982
“Kim Ji Young, Born 1982” is based on the best selling novel of the same name. It tells the story of Kim Ji Young who was born in 1982 and is someone’s daughter, wife, mother, and co-worker. With a storyline women could easily relate to, it became a big hit in Korea, selling over one million copies. Its feminist themes, however, made it controversial in a conservative country like Korea.
Fans praised Suzy for supporting the movie in spite of the controversy it is receiving.
You knew you’d be blamed, but you kept your faith.
