What’s Korean Cinema? 36 – Springtime

Choi Min-sik may say he’s a bad guy in Springtime but this is as far removed from any scenes involving hammers or eating live animals on screen. No, Choi Min-sik gets taken down a notch, brought into warmth in Ryu Jang-ha’s 2004 drama. With Kenny B and Paul Quinn of Hangul Celluloid.

Running Times: 
00m 00s – Intro/Ryu Jang-ha bio/discussion.
18m 33s – Choi Min-sik bio/discussion.
47m 35s – Springtime review.
