TREELESS MOUNTAIN is a Korean drama in which two young sisters are left with a distant aunt whilst their mother seeks reconciliation with their estranged father.

Language

There is infrequent mild bad language (for example, 'bastard').

There are a few scenes where children impale large grasshoppers onto wooded skewers, which they then roast alive and sell as snacks to other kids. Insects are not defined as protected 'animals' under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 (which applies only to vertebrates) and so these scenes do not contravene the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937. The scene may be revolting to some people but the impaling and roasting is shown to be a normal and culturally accepted practice in Korea.
