Japan Kyushu Nagasaki Hashima(Gunham-do) island mine.
When it was 6:00, the supervisor began banging the dorm doors along the hall with a baton and woke the sleeping men.
"Wake up! If you're late there will be no breakfast!"
Jong-gu put his face to the metal window bars and begged the supervisor as he walked by dorm #2 hallway.
"Sir! Please assign me near the tunnel that collapsed yesterday to find my brother."
"What? That area has been banned from mining for a while. After today, you are all assigned to the opposite tunnels, so do as you're told."
"Boss, sir, please! I need to at least find my brother's body."
The supervisor opened the metal doors and dragged Jong-gu to the hallway and beat him with the baton.
"Oh, sir. I will talk to him and calm him down please stop."
