A clash of views on the past.


Lee Hyun-jung

Director Hyun-Jung Lee was born in South Korea.  She once thought her future would be in music and, at one point, considered a career in radio broadcasting.  Changing her focus to television, she became an anchorwoman for the news channel YTN.  She studied Christian theology at Ewha University, but has over the years harbored a passion to work in film.  Virgin Forest is her first feature film.
