This book is a diverse discussion on directors in the present tense, ones who do not yet stand at the center of Korean film but richly occupy its periphery, seeking their own status as new creators.  

One of this book’s major strengths is that you can see in this book these still relatively young directors’ experimentation with various filmmaking environments and new forms different from the existing system. It is also possible to foresee changes in Korean film by examining the voices and films of these individuals, who are carving out their own contemporary film culture separately and together. 

CHUNG Yoon-chul's characteristic determination to edify, MIN Kyu-dong's delicate sensitivity toward personal wounds, and HAN Jae-rim's genre shifts and ironic humor are tonics for Korean film, while KIM Hyun-seok's filmmaking as director's taste and his free interpretation of history and PARK Heung-sik's depiction of historical eras and finely detailed sketches of the everyday broaden the territory of Korean film a step further. Film is a beautiful cacophony created as they gather their various voices, separately and together.
