  • Sell your copper, your iron, your old appliances!

  • Sell your beer bottles, your cans!

  • The chicken for the private room is ready.

  • Coming.

  • Hey, they need to pay some of their tab for once.

  • Here, Mr. Wu, have some more. (Yeah, please eat, have more.)

  • Here you go. (Okay, your chicken is ready.)

  • Ms. Ding, (Yes?)

  • if you need something, just talk to Wu!

  • He'll help you! (From now on, you can count on Mr. Wu!)

  • Call me if you ever need help!

  • Also, get two more packs.

  • Alright.

  • Here, let's try that chicken! (Yeah, dig in.)

  • Hey Yan, come take these cigarettes in. (Okay.)

  • Eat up men, it's delicious! (Here here! Cheers!)

  • The chicken was great.

  • Done eating?

  • All done.

  • Good day.

  • Thank you!

  • Mr. Wu, can you please settle your tab today?

  • Next time. We'll pay, don't worry.

  • Uh, but sir,

  • it's just your tab is so high. At least pay some of it.

  • Sir, listen,

  • we don't have the turnover to sustain this.

  • Just what are you saying? Huh?

  • You'll get paid next time, didn't you hear?

  • We can't wait.

  • We borrowed money to open the restaurant,

  • we haven't paid it back.

  • We can't even pay our workers their salaries.

  • We get our liquor, cigarettes, and food on credit.

  • If you don't pay your bill,

  • we won't be able to remain open.

  • Please, can't the Party take care of us?

  • Mrs. Ding,

  • you must be flexible when you deal with the government.

  • That's the way to keep your business open.

  • Don't you agree, hmm?

  • We can't keep doing this.

  • It's such an evil world!

  • They eat, they drink,

  • but these government scum never pay a cent.

  • They're worse than bandits and robbers!

  • Oh, Mrs. Ding! (Hi.)

  • I'm surprised you have time to see me.

  • I need a favor. (Oh.)

  • We're a bit short at the restaurant and need to borrow more.

  • What?

  • We borrowed money to pay for this truck,

  • I'm really sorry.

  • We'd like to help but we have to pay our loan back.

  • I just ordered more medicine,

  • so money is very tight now.

  • I'm really sorry, but I can't help.

  • It's fine.

  • Yesterday the quality inspectors came.

  • They claimed we're not up to standard, so they fined us.

  • It's just outright tyranny.

  • Ruilin, (Yes?)

  • business is hard just now, and this is all that I have.

  • But I want you to take it.

  • Thank you.

  • You're welcome.

  • Chief Hou, that was some luck last night.

  • You won a lot. (Cheers!)

  • I did pretty well. (Let's drink.)

  • Let's have another.

  • Great night. Another round. (Cheers!)

  • Mr. Chen?

  • Yes, of course.

  • Not to worry, we'll get the job done. (The bureau chief.)

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • So what's wrong? (What happened?)

  • He wants the job done.

  • Damn! They always do this around the holidays.

  • The damn fine quotas get higher every year.

  • The bosses sit in their office drinking tea,

  • while we run around in a sweat, doing all the work!

  • And they give us the worst jobs every time!

  • It's true. (Come on, don't be mad.)

  • There's no point complaining.

  • If we don't finish it, we don't get a bonus,

  • not to mention promotions.

  • Let's find a reason to give a fine.

  • Come on.

  • Hey. Stay, let's dance. (We're leaving.)

  • Till next time.

  • Here's your change.

  • Two and a half yuan.

  • Here's the money.

  • Thanks.

  • Mr. Zhang, you gave me too much!

  • I must be getting old and senile.

  • You saw a 50 as a 10.

  • How much is it?

  • Yan? What's up?

  • Yeah.

  • Based on just one call of complaint,

  • you say we defraud customers by selling broiler chicken as free-range?

  • We'd never do something like that.

  • Why did you freeze our business license?

  • Yeah, why?

  • We're just following the law. (Following the law?)

  • You've accused us of a crime without any real proof!

  • We can't accept this fine!

  • It's not up to us, so don't waste our time, 'kay?

  • Pay your fine and you'll get your license back.

  • Take it! (If you have a problem, talk to the bureau chief!)

  • What?

  • How much! (How could …)

  • Last time you fined us 5,000,

  • this time you want 18,000? (You …)

  • Please! (You have to at least leave us enough to survive!)

  • Stop! You shut up!

  • Don't pay, we'll close you down!

  • Get out! Go on! Get moving! (But …)

  • What you're doing is blatant robbery! (Where do we go?)

  • Get out of here! (Is this how you serve the people?)

  • Get out!

  • You watch your mouth!

  • Keep it up, you'll be in obstruction. Now go!

  • You can't …

  • This is an outrage! (Go!)

  • But

  • plus 1850 equals 7600.

  • 342 plus 275 plus 8 …

  • Mama, the teacher said we have to pay tuition.

  • I know that!

  • If we don't pay, they won't let me go to school.

  • Pay, pay, pay! That's all they ever want!

  • Mama, don't be angry.

  • If you don't have the money, I just won't go to school.

  • Come Lei, go to your room, okay?

  • Let's do your homework.

  • Don't yell at him for money we owe!

  • I said we shouldn't own a restaurant.

  • With the CCP, one can't run a business.

  • You didn't believe me. You insisted on the restaurant.

  • You said we needed it, so Lei could go to college.

  • How'd that turn out? Did we earn anything?

  • The CCP runs China. There'll be no fairness while they rule.

  • Every day it's deceit and blackmail.

  • You couldn't see it, but I did all along!

  • I didn't think they'd be so evil!

  • These corrupt officials!

  • Sanitation, Commerce, Taxation, Health,

  • every department takes bribes.

  • If you can't pay, they find ways to frame you,

  • then they either fine you or close your business.

  • They never pay any of their bills,

  • and now there's forty to fifty thousand we'll never get back.

  • All that we worked so hard for sucked away clean by corrupt officials.

  • Ruilin

  • With the CCP in power, all officials are corrupt.

  • Common people like us have no power.

  • We have no choice but to be oppressed.

  • Running a business and having a decent life in China is nothing but a dream.

  • Forget about a good life.

  • The loans we took to open up the restaurant

  • will take half our lives to pay off.

  • China is an awful place; there's no way to live here.

  • Now you finally understand!

  • This is the darkness we live in with the CCP.

  • Ordinary people can't survive.

  • I asked you to believe in God, but you didn't listen.

  • You both insisted on doing this.

  • And after all of that suffering, you earned nothing and have such large debts.

  • Had I known this would be the result, I'd have believed instead.

  • At the time, I was worried about the CCP's persecution of religious faith.

  • I thought, if I were arrested, our lives would be even worse.

  • I never thought a business would end up like this.

  • Hello?

  • Hey, it's me.

  • Oh, hi.

  • Have you two made a decision about coming to work in Korea?

  • The agent fee alone is more than a hundred thousand.

  • Where will I get it?

  • If we can't find work, we'll have spent a fortune on nothing.

  • Don't worry about it.

  • I'll loan you the money for now.

  • You can pay it back when you have it.

  • Listen, you'd have to work years in China to earn what you make in one year here.

  • I promise you won't regret coming to Korea.

  • If the money problem is solved, we're happy to go abroad!

  • Alright, it sounds like a plan.

  • Okay.

  • Hey, Mingyi, Yongzhi says he'll loan us the money.

  • Let's go to Korea!

  • Korea is a democratic country. There's rule of law.

  • There won't be corrupt officials blackmailing us.

  • If we both get jobs in Korea and work for a few years,

  • we'll be able to pay off our debts,

  • and save the money for Lei to go to college.

  • In Korea, we could go to meetings and believe in God.

  • What do you think?

  • Mama.

  • It's a good plan,

  • but if we both go, what about your mother and Lei?

  • You don't need to worry about us.

  • I'll care for Lei.

  • Go and do what must be done.

  • Mama, call me when you are in Korea

  • Hey, Mingyi!

  • Yeah?

  • Look here, the light is wonderful!

  • Not bad at all.

  • Hey, Ruilin, (Yes?)

  • how's the apartment? It looks alright?

  • Mm. It's great.

  • Here, here you go.

  • Hey! I need soy sauce! Bring me some!

  • Coming!

  • Here, your chicken.

  • There, casserole's ready!

  • Careful, it's hot.

  • Here's table 6. (Got it.)

  • 38,000 won.

  • Okay, just a minute.

  • Hi, what can I get you?

  • Table 7, Shredded Pork.

  • Hmm, it needs a bit more heat.

  • Here, it's table ten's order.

  • Preparing food isn't bad work. Let's do that! (I need a plate!)

  • Coming!

  • Wash this, we're waiting to use it. ('Kay.)

  • Hey, you know those pastries you made?

  • They were very interesting.

  • Maybe one day you can be our pastry chef!

  • Is that so?

  • Hey, you OK?

  • You alright?

  • I'm fine.

  • What's going on?

  • I'm very sorry. I'll pay more attention.

  • Be careful!

  • I will.

  • Everyone keep the pace up!

  • Mr. Guo, you alright?

  • I'm alright. It's an old condition.

  • Stand over ten hours a day, you develop pains.

  • Mr. Guo,

  • you should go get it looked at.

  • You can't keep this up.

  • It's true.

  • You're pushing yourself like a robot.

  • Well, what can I do?

  • I took out a high-interest loan to come with my son to Korea.

  • But he just refuses to learn decent habits, and spends more than he earns.

  • The burden of the debt falls on me alone.

  • I don't have the time to be sick!

  • I'm like a donkey, that's tied to a millstone.

  • I can only keep going. I can't go back.

  • Mr. Guo,

  • don't be so pessimistic.

  • Now, here's what I think.

  • It's true that things are hard and tiring for us right now, but

  • after a few years, things will change.

  • I won't lie,
