Director Bio

Bong Joon Ho

P&I - Director Bio

Bong Joon Ho firmly established himself at the vanguard of Korean filmmakers with his five feature films, including Memories of Murder (2003), The Host (2006) and the award-winning Snowpiercer. Through all of his features, Bong demonstrates a propensity for bold ideas that catch an audience off-guard and present a new kind of viewing experience where suspense, humor and humanity co-exist in singular films that cannot be defined by one particular genre.
