One of Korea’s greatest film stylists, whose innovative take on film genres has brought him worldwide acclaim, KIM Jee-woon is always pushing in new directions. His debut THE QUIET FAMILY ingeniously fused horror and comedy in a film that skirts the boundaries of commercial cinema. THE FOUL KING, about a harassed banker who takes up pro wrestling in his spare time, was the film that made a star out of SONG Kang-ho. With its stunning visuals and challenging story, A TALE OF TWO SISTERS is recognized as one of the most influential Korean horror films ever. This was followed up by the elegant, brutal noir A BITTERSWEET LIFE, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The eclectic “Kimchi Western” THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD stands out as both a popular hit and an utterly unique contribution to Korean cinema, while gory revenge drama I SAW THE DEVIL carried KIM into uncharted genre waters.
