Male - 1959/05/22

Director Scriptwriter

Biography

In every single film he does, director KWAK’s main interest is “love.” Not just any love but pure, innocent and platonic feeling of love. He successfully captured the heart of the audience by showing comical and lovable characters and their touching love story in MY SASSY GIRL. In THE CLASSIC, by showing two different but connected love stories of two generations, he pulled out the memories of first loves everyone had or wants to have. Now, he is one of the best directors who can express love story in a way that both young and old generations can feel emotionally attached.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Classic"

    2014/03/01,
    The immediate standout quality of "The Classic" is its musical score. The sound weaves effortlessly between classical beats and more modern ones, marking a constant shift in situations. In the rustic countryside of South Korea, a certain beauty is built up to by the slowly rising frequency of the tones. Meanwhile, city life moves according to a quicker more modern beat. In either case, the quality of the sound reflects that same feeling of general life, of being young, and the hopeful optimism that's all too infectious regarding those bygone days. Then actual conflicts start showing up in the story and all this stuff starts to get rather weird and annoying,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Sex is Zero": A Gross-Out Comedy Korean Style

    2013/08/24,
    In the Spotlight this Week: "Sex Is Zero" (2002) by Yoon Je-kyoon This zany gross-out comedy came out late 2002 and showed just what happens when "My Sassy Girl" (2001) gets "American Pie" (1999) on its face. "Sex Is Zero" was a successful college comedy that followed two groups of the opposite sex and their multiple promiscuous collisions. The film's slapstick and dirty humour comes thick and fast and there are just as many stomach-churning moments here as there are  provocative compositions and sequences. But "Sex Is Zero" is not all fun and games; director Yoon Je-kyoon ("Miracle on 1st Street" and "Haeundae") had no problems including some very heavy subject matter during the film's latter half, a shift that acts as a stark counterweight to some of film's more ludicrous antics and teasings,...More
