    Written by Kim Young-jin, one of Korea’s foremost film critics, this book—which includes interviews, a biography, a filmography, and synopses—examines the cinematic world of Lee Chang-dong, widely hailed as one of Korea’s top directors despite having produced only four films to date. Lee’s films embrace the scars of Korean history and reality as well as the illusory nature of the film medium. His latest work, “Secret Sunshine”—a comeback film of sorts as Lee returns to directing after a stint as Korea’s Minister of Culture—has been invited to the Cannes Film Festival. His filmography includes “Green Fish,” “Oasis,” and “Peppermint Candy.”




    In his films, Lee embraces the scars of history and reality as well as the illusory nature of the film medium. At the same time, he asks the viewers if a film can be a medium of mass communication to convey the meaningfulness of reality. This is something that his contemporary directors have never attempted. And this is why Lee is considered as a great artist in the Korean film scene even though he has a filmography of only three films, with his fourth to be released soon...
