Synopsis
Dong-Dong goes to the stationery store buy new marbles, but instead, he buys a bag of sweets, which turn out to be magical. Each time he puts a sweet into his mouth, he hears the voices of other people, animals, and things – the old sofa, his dog Goo-Seul, nitpicking father, and passed grandmother. Dong-Dong pops a sweet into his mouth and approaches another child and initiates a conversation. The scene of Dong-Dong expressing his inner thoughts and feelings upon hearing those of others is particularly heartwarming.
