Lee Jae-han (이재한)

Male - 1971

Director Scriptwriter


His English name is John H. Lee


LEE had been acclaimed for his short films and music videos since his years at New York University. After graduation, he returned to Korea to write and direct his first feature film "The Cut Runs Deep" (1998) and the film was praised for its originality in terms of the visual and direction, which was rarely seen in Korean films back then. In 2004, LEE completed his second feature "A Moment to Remember" starring JEONG Woo-seong and SON Ye-jin. The film was a traditional melo-drama, totally different from his first work. The film recorded more than 3 million admissions and proved that LEE has an excellent talent in directing various genres. The movie made a huge success in Japanese cinemas and led him to direct his latest film, a Korean-Japanese co-production film "Sayonara Itsuka" based on the novel with the same title by a popular Japanese writer TSUJI Hitonari. Filmed with NAKAYAMA Miho ( "Love Letter" ) and NISHIJIMA Hidetoshi ( "Dolls" ) as main cast, the film is scheduled for release in Japan early this year. LEE is currently represented by CAA.

  • [INTERVIEW] Producer Jeong Tae-won - Part 3

    2010/05/31, Source,
    Producer Jeong Tae-won [Beck Una/10Asia] Beck Una: You're well-known as being a producer who works closely with the actors. There are many actors who like you or you get along with and you run a management agency too. Jeong Tae-won: I always think of myself as their older brother. And that I should make the sacrifices for them first since I'm their older brother. But when I make new attempts, I expect them to engage in them for their faith in me rather than for the money. On the outside, Taewon [Entertainment] is perceived as a company which is overflowing with money but our organs are the only things that aren't held [as security]. (laugh) Every project is difficult in the beginning but the actors have always helped since they know their older brother is going to make a movie, not buy land, by making money. (laugh) Both "IRIS" and "71-Into the Fire" are also productions which would have been difficult to make without that trust. When a movie doesn't do well, the actors are the first people I feel sorry for. I wheedled them into doing it but I would leave a scratch in their life due to that film. It remains a debt in my heart. And I want to do whatever I can to repay that debt,...More
