<SYNOPSIS>

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 collaboratin 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.

제주 출신인 용길은 일본에 의해 전쟁터로 끌려가 한쪽 팔을 잃고, 전쟁이 끝나고 고향에 돌아가려 했지만 4·3과 6.25 전쟁이 터지면서 다시 한 번 고향으로 돌아갈 기회를 놓치고 만다. 세 딸과 아들 토키오를 키우느라 밤낮없이 일하던 용길은 어느덧 고향으로 돌아갈 생각을 포기하고 오사카 간사이 공항 근처 국유지에 자리잡은 재일교포 마을에서 자신의 이름을 딴 한국식 바베큐집을 운영하며 이국땅에서 이방인으로 차별과 가난의 어려움 속에서 가족들을 지키며 힘차게 살아간다. 이 작품은 2008 초연하여 재일 조선인의 애환과 삶을 사실적으로 묘사했다는 평과 함께, 한일 양국의 연극상을 휩쓴 정의신 감독의 동명의 원작 희곡을 바탕으로 하고 있으며 2018년 영화로 제작되어 2018 전주국제 영화제 개막작으로 상영되었다.
