YesAsia Editorial Description

Every year the Korean Film Council selects three to six acclaimed local directors and releases biographies of them as a part of their "Korean Film Director Series". This year the focus falls on Park Chan Wook in this 164-page English-language biography.

Striking an exceptional balance between commercial and critical success, award-winning director Park Chan Wook has emerged over the last decade as a visionary filmmaker who thrives on taking risks. Perhaps best known for his Vengeance Trilogy - Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002), Old Boy (2003), and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005) - Park embodies a provocative-style approach that stretches far beyond the genre's convention. In particular, his international cult hit Old Boy received widespread attention and international acclaim, bringing the eccentric director Grand Prix honors at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.
