    Kim Jee-woon began his career as a stage actor, stage director, and screenwriter. His debut as a director came in the form of his own award-winning screenplay “The Quiet Family.” Kim’s films have been hailed by critics and audiences alike for his unique styles and method of storytelling. His second feature, “The Foul King,” drew more than 2 million viewers, while the beautiful horror film “A Tale of Two Sisters” sold more than 3.5 million tickets at the box office and became the subject of a remake by DreamWorks. His 2008 blockbusting historical romp “The Good, The Bad, The Weird” drew more than 7 million admissions in Korea, while this year’s “I Saw the Devil” is set to leave Kim’s striking imprint on the 2010 Korean film scene as well.


    From the Preface


    […] With Kim, there is a slightly uneasy coexistence of the virtues of a commercial film director and solitary auteurism; a sense of conscience that demands that he make even entertainment films melancholy; aesthetic judgment that is stinting toward genre film, coupled with a director’s dissatisfaction that with situation. These contradictory elements have essentially come together to drive him onto film sets.
