    PREFACE "My reason for wanting to tell a story from the '80s is because I feel that the current societal climate is very similar. About 3 years ago I got a feeling that the era of my deceased father was suddenly coming back, an era in which everyone's good will is only reserved for their own survival and well being. But like my own father, I did not see these people as selfish fools, but sympathized with them. I wanted to portray these characters not as criminals who were on the wrong side of the law, but as people who tried their best to survive and thrive despite the conditions they were in. People innately follow the times they live in and those who ride it architect the next generation. The '80s in South Korea were an incredibly volatile decade in which a single person's decision could change the direction of an entire era. Following men who lived through that decade, I wanted to show that the eighties had more dramatic appeal than any other decade. I wanted to inquire whether it was the times that were changing the people, or if it was the people that were changing the times. Most of all, I hope that the audience can laugh and identify with these men who lived like kings in the face of loyalty, betrayal, and ambition".,...More

    Lee Seung-yeon-I, left, and rocker Kang San-eh appear in a scene from "Pink", the latest film by art house auteur Jeon Soo-il. / Courtesy of Mountain Pictures By Lee Hyo-won Art house favorite Jeon Soo-il brings yet another slow, stark drama that reveals the grit and beauty of ruins. Having premiered earlier this month at the 16th Busan International Film Festival, "Pink" incisively examines the nature of implosive violence and psychosexuality through the squalor of a desolate port town. It is destined for hotwire the international film festival circuit and art houses, while the big screen comeback of seasoned actress Seo Kap-sook and acting debut of rocker Kang San-eh may attract niche audiences here,...More
