This documentary looks at secrets lived out in the open, things everyone knows about, but no one will talk about - until that moment when it becomes fully exposed to the world.
This episode of the documentary series visits South Korea. Each episode visits a different country, looking at a single secret and exploring why the issue remained a secret for years despite existing out in the open. What has allowed these secrets to fester in the open for so long?
So, who are some of the most untouchable families in South Korea? How have they managed to live in secrecy for so many years? This documentary explores that.
