Love in the Boondocks
LOVE IN THE BOONDOCKS
Kim Anh, a recently divorced primary school teacher, cleverly uses her skills in English to help Dave in his small rented cottage, and invades his emotional life, which poses social and financial problems to overcome along the way.
The word BOONDOCKS originated as military slang used by American soldiers engaging guerrillas in the Philippines before World War II, from Tagalog bundok, mountain, from Proto-Malayo-Polynesian *bunduk, elevated ground. The word has since been used by many others to denote a remote and wild area in any country.
