Our protagonist Baduk is a Baduk genius from birth. But it has been a long time since she quit Baduk. All at once she takes part in an Omok tournament which helds in her village, to win prize money. She meets an Omok genius whose name is Glasses Lee in the tournament and makes up her mind to train herself more. Then she applies for the national competition for money once again. She re-encounters with Glasses Lee and the biggest battle between the two finally begins.

 

Director's Note

 

Unlike the ‘Baduk’ that is compared to life, ‘Omok’ is considered as small as a play. But, I think that small thing is another charm of life. I wanted to tell that sometimes the triviality makes life.
