Director Statement

Cheating is a betrayal in a relationship. Especially if the affair is carried out behind a commitment that has been approved by religion and law. As a director, I see this as needing more attention. Not to get rid of it, but to realize that having an affair requires sacrifice that is completely undeserved. In this film, I was inspired by the story of my family, who experienced an affair that was even carried out on land that was supposed to be a place of refuge and to share love between families. In that incident, I saw many things sacrificed by the perpetrators of infidelity. Not only time, family, or materials—even lives—became victims in this incident.

Seeing the things that were sacrificed, for my family that's a real disgrace that must be covered. But for me, it's a lesson that I have to tell to at least make the perpetrators of the affair aware. Because for me, it's not about who's at fault. It's not the man's fault; it's not the woman's fault. For me, this is a matter of awareness in the heart about the many things that will be sacrificed.
