From a director who makes the most out of his sporadic filmmaking, we find Lee Chang-dong directing a lead performance with enough acting for 3 movies. So is his 140 minute drama Secret Sunshine from 2007, about grief, belief and emotional trauma worth the investment. Or do we need to watch vidoes of puppies to cleanse? Find out with Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid‘s Paul Quinn.

For episode 19, we cover the oldest Korean movie with recorded sound in existence that also is the shortest Korean movie discussed on this show. And hence maybe the shortest episode we’re ever likely to record. Brevity is an art not practised today, in Korea and elsewhere but anyway, the movie is Sweet Dream from 1936. With Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid‘s Paul Quinn.

For the 50 year anniversary of Kim Ki-young’s 1960 classic we reviewed on What’s Korean Cinema? 18, director Im Sang-soo directed what is mostly said to be a reinterpretation of Kim’s movie but it was still brought out as The Housemaid. Rightly or not. Hear Kenny B and Paul Quinn extend their Housemaid-coverage in this website exclusive bonus episode (it’s introduced as episode 22 but is in fact the 23rd. Sorry about that).
Past and future meets in this land of turmoil. A tale of ninja powers turned to evil. The evil ninja army spread death and terror throughout the city. He’s no ordinary man.
