Elephants Laugh - MULJIL

Elephants Laugh - MULJIL

Elephants Laugh


The Korean word ‘MULJIL’ refers to diving activities by Haenyeo, female divers of Jeju Island.

When diving in for shellfish, each Haenyeo endures a critical moment of breathlessness at least twice. Only those who are determined to risk their lives can overcome such brief moments of crisis. The crossroads of life and death that Haenyeo encounter when diving exists in our daily lives and although separated like islands, we are all immersed in the same sea. Nobody can choose the conditions of life themselves.
