When she was young, the director was caught by her mother while masturbating and got scolded. To release the decade-old suppressed memory, she decided to come out about female masturbation, calling it "jaming out". Though male masturbation has the nickname "ddal-ddal-i", the female practice is forced to be hidden. Ladies, from the director's grandmother, to her friends seem happy with “jaming out.” The director even suggests that her mother to try the pleasure. She joins hands to raise the female sexuality to the surface, calling the female practice "bo-deum-i." [CHAE Heesuk]

    Growing up with three brothers, Yeji was the only who one cleaned up after meals. She thought it was unfair but was always told it because she was more meticulous than the boys. She played soccer with her brothers, but could only be the goalkeeper. She did not want to play if it meant she could only be the goalkeeper. When Yeji became a middle schooler, she wore a uniform; she found the uniform skirt, which didn’t let her run around freely, to be uncomfortable. But the teacher said that she had to have a special reason to wear pants. She ended up graduating after six years of wearing that skirt. She became a college student and after May 17, 2016, she met feminism and became a feminist.
