Hong Sang-soo

Hong Sang-soo made the astounding debut with his first feature film The Day a Pig Fell into the Well in 1996. Since then, through the 20 films that he wrote and directed, Hong has consistently enjoyed using a complex and highly ordered architecture under a seemingly random surface created by spontaneous circumstances in depicting the characters in his films. Renowned for his unique cinematographic language and unprecedented esthetics in filmmaking, Hong Sang-soo is considered as one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema. :
