    Today, I watched a very special documentary, Our Family, at the Arirang Cine and Media Center in Seongbuk-gu, and I also stayed for the “Talk with the Audience” session after the film.

    Our Family, directed by Kim Do-hyun and released on August 24th, shows the happy day-to-day lives of ten children and their “uncle” Kim Tae-hoon, who live together as a “family” in the same house, a group home for children of North Korean defectors.

    Director Kim Do-hyun, Mr. Kim Tae-hoon from the group home “family,” and two young North Korean defectors participated in the talk.

    People from different countries and regions all around the world still live under the same sky as Seoul. They all have their own dreams, but life can be tough. If we help each other and work hard toward living well together, I believe we can lead happy and enjoyable lives. We are a family.
