Kong Ji-yeong "The reality for the main character was even worse"

2011/10/04 Source

The original writer of novel "Silenced" appeared on YTN "News and Issue – Issue and People" and revealed that the situation for the main characters of the "Silenced" was much crueler [than portrayed in the current movie].

Kong Ji-yeong said, "There was a lot of sexual harassment but there was violence too. The children had a hard time just living off the basics".

"At dinner, they made them gather around like pigs to eat what was left over from lunch. I couldn't help but eat only crackers after seeing that.

She continued and explained about the reason for writing her book, "They opened up to me real quickly. I wanted to revive this incident and give them some kind of strength".

When she was asked about the scenes that couldn't be displayed in the movie like the were in the book, she said, "They actually tied up the children, raped them then just left them there when they went home. They just left them there tied up".

Kong Ji-yeong's novel is about the reality of a school for the deaf in Mujin, a pro-democracy mecca. It reveals the good and the bad of the world and goes through the truth and lies surrounding the school.
