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.

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.
