What’s Korean Cinema? 38 – Double Agent

You can take a far more gentle approach to North Korean infiltration into South Korea, as opposed to the animalistic, head chopping ways in Shiri, and when you’re a screenwriter making your directorial debut, it makes sense it is less noisy and more story driven. This is what you’ll face in Kim Hyeon-jeong’s Double Agent from 2003. With Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid’s Paul Quinn.

Running Times: 
00m 00s – Intro/notes and discussion of writer and director Kim Hyeon-jeong
20m 43s – North and South Korean conflict/defections.
28m 08s – Double Agent review.
