Choi Soo-in In I Can Speak
I Can Speak (hangul: 아이 캔 스피크) is a film based on a true story. It’s about a civil servant, Park Min-jae (played by Lee Je-hoon) transferred to a new area in Seoul in the public service department, Na Ok Boon (played by Na Moon-hee), a grandmother who works as a tailor. In this movie, Choi Soo-in played Ok Boon’s when she was still young.
Grandma Ok Boon always comes to Park Min-jae’s office to make complaints about the events encountered around her. Many old employees already know the grandmother’s habits and assign Min-jae to accept all the complaints from the grandmother.
Meanwhile, Grandma Ok Boon is also studying English and she finds out that Park Min-jae is fluent in English and asks for help to teach her to speak fluent English. The reason given by Grandma Ok Boon for being able to speak English was to be able to talk to her sister, who has lived in America for a long time, and she doesn’t speak Korean.
The movie’s unexpected plot twist lies in another reason Grandma Ok Boon is learning English. It turns out that at the age of 13 years old, Grandma Ok Boon and other girls were forced and threatened to become sex slaves of Japanese soldiers during World War II. In the end, this movie tells history with a deeper topic and creates other emotions for the audience. Grandma Ok Boon gave a statement at the 2007 American Congress via HR121 with a touching and moving testimony and message.
The message that grandma Ok Boon conveyed was so touching, she really wanted to learn English to tell the world about what happened during World War II, and maybe not many people know about the comfort woman issue.
She wants to testify so that the Japanese government, which refuses to apologize to comfort women, formally admits mistakes and apologizes to all comfort women whose childhoods have been taken away and suffered during their lives. She also asked to always remember this dark history so that it would not happen again.
This movie provides justice for those who have endured the physical and mental torture they endured during their lifetime. It’s not easy to open yourself up, to tell the truth. This is also portrayed in Ok Boon’s mother who asked her to hide and remain silent. But in the end Ok Boon regrets it and realizes that she should have talked about it sooner.
A profound message that such incidents include sexual harassment should not be hidden. Women should not remain silent, because we can talk, and we must talk even though many people will oppose and try to prove us wrong. For that, we should not ignore those who dare to muster their strength to speak publicly on the issue. Don’t make them hurt more.
