Way before his kidnapping by Kim Jong-il or possible defection to North Korea, Shin Sang-ok honed his important voice in South Korean cinema and creating diverse work. Ranging from the gritty, documentary style thriller Flower In Hell to this widescreen period horror about a familiar trope and content within Korean film and TV. The fox spirit takes center stage in Thousand Years Old Fox from 1969. With Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid’s Paul Quinn.
