Synopsis

Hyeonkyeong, Bokhee, and Somin are members of DIY woodwork studio. Hyeonkyeong (42) is making a children’s bed for her ten-year-old child, Bokhee (39) is making a dressing table for herself, and Somin (37) is making a strange-looking chair. They look bright and cheerful but their hearts are not. Hyeonkyeong trusts her husband and is raising a child, but she is somewhat unstable. Bokhee dreams of becoming an independent woman, but is considering a divorce. Somin, who is the youngest of all, got married in a young age and became a housewife, and gets psychiatric help regularly. They laugh and chat at the studio, their only resting place and shelter. As they proceed with their projects, they discover their wounded souls. 
“What do I want? For whom do I live my life?”
        

Performance Characteristics

The story develops as three women laugh and chat at a DIY studio. Their values clash as they have different lifestyles. They are best friends, but they hurt and are hurt by one another. For they are human, they envy, fall into despair, and depend on each other. Plus, the society has put a heavy burden on them in the form of marriage, child-bearing, in-laws, and sexual discrimination all in the name of “housewife.”They try to laugh but are saddened and frustrated by the fact that their dreams are just “dreams.” Here, we present a small but comforting measure.
“Do it yourself! Those who did not live your life!
 Raise your hammers!”
