[ti:Korean Book-Turned-Movie: Women Love It, Men Hate It] [by:www.knnrug.live] [00:00.00]更多聽力請訪問51VOA.COM [00:00.04]In South Korea, the most popular movie this week is about the everyday sexism women face there. [00:08.92]It is based on the best-selling book called Kim Ji-young, Born 1982. [00:15.53]Both the book and movie have people talking about [00:19.64]the place of women in South Korea's historically male-dominated society. [00:26.36]The film sold $8.3 million in tickets in its first week, says the Korean Film Council. [00:35.35]Some of that comes from women who have not even seen the movie. [00:39.86]Commenters on social media said they bought tickets as a way to show their support. [00:46.86]The action is known in Korea as "sending one's soul." [00:52.60]The new movie and 2016 book are about a married woman in her 30s. [00:58.92]She feels forced by her social situation and other people's opinions [01:04.32]to surrender her work and dreams. [01:07.56]She leaves her job to raise her young child. [01:12.01]A book review on the website dramasROK notes that Kim Ji-young [01:19.20]was the most common name for a girl in 1982. [01:23.77]The title suggests that the story is about the usual experiences [01:29.20]of many girls and women in South Korea. [01:32.91]The reviewer said the book describes a number of small events in the life of Kim Ji-young. [01:40.93]At family meals, she is given her food last. [01:45.32]At work, a client makes insulting comments to her, [01:50.12]and she feels pressured to accept them. [01:53.00]During a holiday, she is expected to help cook and clean [01:58.16]with her husband's mother while the men rest. [02:02.60]In time, Kim Ji-Young begins talking as if she is other people. [02:08.29]She loses her own voice. [02:12.12]A number of women cried loudly as they watched the movie at a theater in Seoul recently. [02:18.44]Seo Mi-jeong was one of them. [02:21.12]She is 23 years old. [02:23.52]She said the movie was realistic. [02:27.12]She said, "It touched on realities in South Korean society [02:32.51]that keep women of different generations from the life they wanted to lead." [02:38.69]Her comment was very different than that of a 29-year-old man [02:43.56]who saw the film on opening day. [02:46.00]Kim Won-koo said he did not connect emotionally [02:50.60]with the idea that a woman born in 1982 faced discrimination growing up. [02:57.28]"Many of the situations seem unrealistic or very, very rare," he said. [03:04.10]Their answers show the difference of opinions among many women and men in South Korea. [03:11.11]Women rated the film an average of 9.5 out of 10 stars on South Korea's top web search page. [03:20.22]Men gave it an average of 2.5 stars. [03:24.66]The film comes at a time when South Koreans are increasingly debating women's rights [03:31.87]and whether men are being treated unfairly. [03:35.46]As in other countries, in recent months a number of well-known male public officials, [03:41.65]business leaders and performers have been accused of sexual harassment and abuse.
