Biography

Director KWON Chil-In is known for his genuine portrayal of urban working women in South Korea. All of his films illustrate the careers and love lives of young women who live their lives without depending on men.
His movie Singles (2003) is a clear representation of the major themes he consistently includes in his movies. Nanan (played by the late actress CHANG Jin-Young), the heroine of the movie, is demoted at work but bounces back through her persistence despite troubles in her love life. In the early 2000s, Nanan was a very rare female character in Korean movies to be depicted with self-confidence.
Kwon’s subsequent films Hellcats (2008) and Loveholic (2010) also had strong leading female characters. Kwon is the only male director in South Korea continuously making movies with women as main characters.
KWON is currently the head of the Director’s Guild of Korea, leading the way for improving the rights and interests of film directors in South Korea.

  • [HanCinema's Busan International Film Festival Movie Review] "Venus Talk"

    2014/10/10,
    The three leading ladies of "Venus Talk" are friends with one common interest that I can suss out- they all enjoy sex, but are ambivalent on the subject of men. It's a sympathetic enough topic with no particularly impressive solution, so they deal with the problem the best way any of us can- with jokes. And sure enough, "Venus Talk" gets quite a bit of mileage just out of sheer novelty value. Take Sin-hye (played by Uhm Jung-hwa). She's disgusted at the piggish behavior of the director with whom she has a secret romantic workplace relationship, and vents out her frustration by demanding he do a better job with close up bikini shots,...More

    "Pompeii" burns out as Neeson's latest soars… Paul W. S. Anderson's disaster epic "Pompeii" failed to retain the top spot this past weekend as the mystery thriller "Non-Stop" flew into first without contention. "Non-stop" managed to capture 33.7% of the sales (704K admissions) as it open its account with more than double that of its nearest rival. The film, which stars Liam Neeson alongside Julianne Moore, Scoot MacNairy, and Michelle Dockery, was given 582 screens in week one and secured pole position with plenty of elbow room. The only other new features to make it into the weekend's top films were 20th Century Fox's "The Monument Man" and the Oscar-winning drama "12 Years a Slave",...More

    Ice gives way to fire as "Pompeii" overthrows "Frozen" at the top… Disney's Oscar contender "Frozen" was finally dislodged at the top of pile in a hotly contested tussle at the top. This past weekend saw Paul W. S. Anderson's disaster epic "Pompeii" entered in first position (542,060-21.3%), a film that has been struggling globally after poor reviews stunted its hopes of reaching the $100M it took to produce. Despite its unimpressive stats thus far, Anderson's indulgent 3D flick only narrowly outplayed Kim Kwang-sik-I's newly released "Tabloid Truth" (440,829-20%). "Tabloid Truth" is already looking good to overtake Kim's pervious effort with "My Dear Desperado", a romantic comedy that claimed nearly 700K stubs back in 2010,...More

    "Frozen" still chilling in first after five weeks… Walt Disney's "Frozen" recently won the Best Animation award at this year's BAFTA, but Korean fans have known about its magic for weeks now. After five weeks the film is still running hot at the top of Korea's box office and, despite ticket sales falling somewhat, the film has now raced to more than 8.9 million admissions and is still going strong. After regaining the crown last week from Hwang Dong-hyeok's "Miss Granny", "Frozen" has managed to remain Korea's movie of choice having racked up 747,416 admissions (29.9%) over the weekend. In fact, both Disney's latest and Dong-hyeok's drama remained unmoved at the top of the pile, and that's despite the release of the must-anticipated "Robocop" and two new local entries in the form of "Venus Talk" and "Apostle",...More
