The tears, the blood and ruins of the war left a big weight on Koreans’ shoulders, one which was reflected on the many difficulties the country went through during those years. Yet, it was one of the most prolific artistic periods the country ever went through, especially in its cultural center Myeongdong, Seoul. All the trends started there, from that parade of feebly lit streets, the fog-like cigarette smoke and the sound of that decade enveloping the whole district. “The Count of Myeongdong” is not your average drama with a normal story, a beginning and a conclusion, a few characters dominating it. It’s more of a docu-drama, a love letter to the Myeongdong that shone between 1953 and 1960. All the coffee shops, the theaters, the publishing companies and even television stations, and all the stars making Myeongdong great. Poets, novelists, musicians, journalists, and their romantic, tragic and crazy lives.
