  • After ups and downs, cinema in golden age

    2013/10/14, Source,
    Actor Ahn Seong-gi has been in the movie business so long, he can barely remember his first role. He was just 5 years old when director Kim Ki-young cast him to play an orphan in a couple of scenes in "Twilight Train" in 1957. "It was just a couple of scenes", Ahn said in a phone interview. "I don't remember much. But I did a good job, so he offered me another role. I guess there were not many child actors in those days, so soon I was a regular actor". Like the rest of the country, South Korea's movie industry was rebuilding after the devastation of the 1950-53 Korean War, which means Ahn's career has been nearly as long as the Korean film business.

The above image is taken from "Bedevilled" (2010), Jang's debut film after having assisted Kim Ki-duk with "Samaria" (2004) as well as "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring" (2003). "Bedevilled" was one of earlier Korean films I watched, and it set the bar high in terms of its stunning cinematography and visual story telling. Jang's psychological horror made its premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and won a string of awards from Korean organisations (including four 'Best New Director' awards), but sadly only sold a little over 160,000 tickets during its run in theatres. The film was a critical success, and if you're talking about Korean revenge films, "Bedevilled" is one of the most hellishly satisfying thrills out there,...More
