Koreans Lost in Korean Cinema

Writer Keum Jungyun of <Cigarettes and Film> and writer Jeong Jidon of <Film and Poetry> introduce the audience to the column “Koreans Lost in Korean Cinema,” which is serialized in the Korean Film Archive. Like the joke that all cinephiles from all over the world hate their own countries’ films, the two writers talk about the conflicting feelings they have towards Korean cinema, their work and even monumental personal stories. The dialogue between the two artists allows audiences to share the same ironic emotions that can be felt in 21st century Korean films as a Korean living in the 21st century.
