What’s Korean Cinema? 11 – Barefooted Youth & Failan


Kenny B and Paul Quinn of Hangul Celluloid dips into something old and classic as well as contemorary and classic. An examination of classic waves of Korean cinema and what they meant then and now. For this episode Kim Ki-duk’s 1964 “adolescent film” Barefooted Youth (1964) is discussed as well as Song Hae-sung’s classic drama Failan (2001), about an ever growing love between husband and wife that never met.

The original recording turned out quite rough so thanks to Henrik Andersson for restoring it to perfectably listenable quality.
