What’s Korean Cinema? 14 – General’s Son & Going By The Book


For our regular mix of something old, something new-ish, we turn to director Im Kwon-taek’s The General’s Son from 1990. The first of three examinations of brawling gangster turned politician Kim Doo-han and in the second half, Castaway On The Moon’s Jung Jae-young is an excellent police officer who’s also an excellent robber as it turned out in Ra Hee-chan’s Going By The Book from 2007. With Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid’s Paul Quinn.
