Yum Jung-Ah, Ji Jin-Hee / Fiction / Korean

From the director of The President's Last Bang, a graceful blend of the personal and the political.

Im Sang-soo

Im Sang-soo was born in 1962 in Seoul. After graduation from the Academy of Film Arts he worked as an assistant director and wrote the screenplay for A Noteworthy Film, which won the Creation Prix at the Korean Motion Picture Promotion Scenario Competition. In 1998 his feature debut Girls’ Night Out caused a controversy upon release due to its frank and sexually-driven dialogue. Im’s string of controversial films also includes The President’s Last Bang.
