Biography

Park Chan-wook is the brother of Park Chan-kyong.
Born in 1963, and is one of the most significant talents of new Korean cinema. He studied philosophy at Sogang University, where he founded a film club and developed a strong interest in film theory and criticism.

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Snowpiercer": Dreaming of a Wicked Wonderland

    2014/04/05,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer"... 2013 was a frantic and fascinating year for Korean cinema. In addition to the recording-breaking figures the domestic box office reported, it was a year that saw three of Korea's top directing talents venture into English-language films. First it was Kim Jee-woon that enticed Arnold Schwarzenegger to get back to bullets in "The Last Stand", Park Chan-wook took Wentworth Miller's sizzling debut script and summoned "Stoker", and then Bong Joon-ho adapted the French graphic novel "Le Transperceneige" and ran with it all the way to the bank. The results were three highly polished and enticing features that displayed the cinematic craftsmanship of three of Korea's most progressive and celebrated moviemakers. Within this talented trio, however, it was Bong Joon-ho's futuristic extravaganza "Snowpiercer" that gathered the most momentum, attracting more than 9.3 million viewers to its epically fantastical imagining of a not-so-distance dystopia,...More

  • Three Korean films highlighted in Berlin

    2014/03/02, Source,
    A scene from "Sprout" (photo courtesy of the Berlin International Film Festival) Three Korean films received awards recently at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival. The winners were "Sprout", directed by Yoon Ga-eun, "Non-fiction Diary", by Jung Yoon-suk, and "A Dream of Iron", by Kelvin Kyung Kun Park. The short film "Sprout" won the Crystal Bear for Best Short Film in the Generation Kplus category. Generation Kplus is for films about children and youth and aims at integrating children and youth into the festival's film-aesthetic discourse, but is a place for encounters between people of all ages. "Sprout" is a story about little Bory who ventures out alone to buy bean sprouts missing from their meal to commemorate her late grandfather,...More
  • [HanCinema's Image Gallery] Spike Lee's "Oldboy" (2013)

    2014/03/01,
    A selection of shots from Spike Lee's "Oldboy" (2013): When news broke that Spike Lee was to direct a remake of Park Chan-wook's award-winning classic "Old Boy" many were skeptical as to the why, exactly, a remake was even considered. Lee's version hit theatres last year and struggled, ultimately grossing just a fraction of its $30 million budget and recieved poor reviews across the board. The film pays homage to Park's version in a number of interesting ways, and also contains a number slight tweaks on Park's 2003 film to keep things interesting. Still, fans have been dismissive of Lee's attempt to stand atop the titanic shoulders of Korea's unmissable masterpiece. Take a look, judge for yourself, and enjoy! [spoiler],...More
