Biography

After studying art in Paris, KIM Ki-duk returned to Korea and began his career as a screenwriter and made his directorial debut with a low-budget movie called "Crocodile" in 1996. From the time he released his first film, he stirred up a sensational response from critics. After every film of his was released, KIM Ki-duk was evaluated and hailed by both critics and the audience for his hard-to-express characters, shocking visuals, and unprecedented messages. The characters that appeared in KIM Ki-duk's films were from the lowest trenches of society and were not welcomed anywhere. In such extreme circumstances, KIM Ki-duk drew out the innocence deep within the characters' hearts through a grotesque and malicious struggle. After his works had been selected by international film festivals, his name has grown in value and the general audience started to show some interest. With "Bad Guy," KIM Ki-duk has drawn over 700,000 moviegoers into local theaters expanding his limited popularity one step further to the mainstream. He continued on making internationally acclaimed films such as "pring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring" which was submitted to the Foreign Language Film section of the Academy Awards to represent Korea cinema along with "Samaritan Girl" ("Samaria") which won the Silver Bear Award (Best Director Award) at the 54th Berlin International Film Festival.

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "The Coast Guard": Mad Morality

    2014/08/09,
    In the spotlight this week: Kim Ki-duk's "The Coast Guard"... Kim Ki-duk's eighth feature "The Coast Guard" was released back in 2002 and follows a young private and his platoon along Korea's east coast. The film won the FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) prize for Kim's "strong and innovative depiction of the illusion of power which destroys humanity on both sides of the fence". In typical Kim Ki-duk fashion, "The Coast Guard" is an introspective and character-driven piece that moulds trauma, tragedy, and madness into a gripping feature that should not be missed,...More
  • [HanCinema's Image Gallery] "The Coast Guard"

    2014/08/09,
    A selection of shots from Kim Ki-duk's "The Coast Guard"... Kim Ki-duk's 2002 drama "The Coast Guard" is a stunningly disturbing critique of contemporary Korea and its militant mindings of men and madness. The film showcases the human condition within the blinding bureaucracy of face-saving servitude. This award-winning piece of criticism is hard-hitting and intense; an introspective and revealing tale typical of Kim that depicts real human tragedy within a soulless and broken system. Enjoy!,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Mozart Town": A Daring and Dreamy Debut

    2014/06/28,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Jeon Kyu-hwan's "Mozart Town": Life in a metropolis can be unforgiving and cruel. The buildings are imposing and the diversity of being is impressive, if not uncomfortably humbling; and it becomes all too easy, perhaps even necessary, to go about one's business bearing blinders and minding your own matters. But collisions are inevitable, uncomfortable and random, and sometimes--if the conditions are just right--multiple lives merge and travel together for a time, only to eventually fork off out into the cityscape. Enter "Mozart Town", a discerning debut that poetically peels back the concrete curtains of big city life to reveal, for better or worse, life under the log. These 'Humans of Seoul' that are found wriggling, are put under Jeon's lens and followed, their dreary existence exposed, and their flaws magnified under the leering light of cinematic attention and focus,...More
