Mulberry is an erotic drama film from South Korea released in 1986, and directed by Lee Doo-yong. It takes inspiration from a renowned tale of the same name by Na Do-hyang. The narrative focuses on everyday life in a small village during the Japanese Occupation of the early 20th century, with the film's eroticism serving as a symbol of the villagers' struggles and boredom. Notable for its erotic themes, the film was a product of the Korean government's progressive easing of censorship on the film industry throughout the 1980s.
The film employs sexual farce to depict the agony of life under Japanese rule. With the men away participating in the Independence Movement, these small villages are portrayed as hubs of sexual activity, signifying a lack of significant events beyond this. The movie was followed by two sequels.
