    When Hong Sangsoo’s debut work, “The Day a Pig Fell into the Well,” was released in May 1996, the nation’s film critics were thrown into shock. The cinematic language in the film was unprecedented in Korean film history. Since then, Hong has continued to show his own distinctive style with near perfection in his following works. This book, written by Huh Moonyung, one of the most distinguished film critics in Korea, is intended to help readers to better understand the cinematic world of Hong Sangsoo. The book also includes the analyses of a prominent film critic, David Bordwell, and a renowned French film director, Claire Denis.



    The “minimalism” on display in Japanese and Taiwanese cinema had by the mid-1990s become a dominant tradition, and one important aspect of Hong’s originality is the way his film rethink that tradition, often in unpredictable ways... HongSangsoo has innovated on another level. Accepting the visual premises of the style, he has developed a strikingly original approach to overall narrative architecture.
