Wednesdays

Dong-bok and Seon-ok, Japanese military sexual slavery victims, attend the Wednesday Protests weekly that have been going on for twenty-eight years. Dong-bok is inquisitive and wishes to explore more about youth culture. Seon-ok is now used to living in Seoul after leaving her hometown. They both like to sit around in a park and simply watch people passing by. On one Wednesday, Dong-bok skips the protest and goes to a cafe to drink bubble tea. Dong-bok sees a couple there and remembers her childhood with her first love, Byeol-ha.
