    "Yakiniku Dragon is a story about a Korean family running a grilled tripe restaurant at a village near Kansai airport in Japan when Expo ’70 was held. The story is based on an original play written by Chong Wishing, a Korean director and script writer living in Japan. Yakiniku Dragon, a play made in collaboration between the Seoul Arts Center and the New National Theatre Tokyo, has been performed in Korea and Japan receiving multiple awards since 2008. Yakiniku Dragon conveys vigorous life of Zainichi villagers sharing common trauma as they argue, reconcile, love and break up. Through the impressive story of characters intensively affecting each other, individual yet conventional sense of life is expressed on screen. Harmony between Korean actors Kim Sangho and Lee Jeong-eun and Japanese actors Maki Yoko and Inoue Mao is wonderful. [KIM Youngjin]
