During the Japanese occupation, there lived a woman named An-hyub in Yong-dam Village. Her husband was a gambler who comes by every few months to change his clothes and pick up money. Still, she waits for her husband. She sells her body to the men of the village in exchange for rice and goods which she lived on. The only man she won't sleep with is a servant named Sam-dol. So when her husband returns, Sam-dol tells him about her loose behavior. However, Sam-bo, her husband, beats Sam-dol up instead and comforts his wife before leaving again. And An-hyub again waits for her husband, Sam-bo. (Asia torrent)

Mulberry aka Pong (1985) basically its about one old times village in south Korea the life in it and about the rivalry between womens of their beauty, about their mens success. is shows in very interesting way about marriage duties. That men have to bring food in home, he have to provide money for living. But not always men can do that.(i found it a funny parts in film) They got they own problems like drinking or gambling so they not always do they role in marriage. And about women , well them role is to take care of house while husband is away, take care of husband (in all ways) when hes come back home, make coking, wash cloth. And if her husband is not successful she don't leave him but she try to bring him in the right way.

The film have very funny humor and contains adult Nudity and Sex. Its actually released on 1985 I like it very much i recommended it for uncommon viewers.
