Index of the 1970s: Director Lee Shi-myeong

3rd November 2013

Lee Shin-myeong was born in Cheolwon as Lee Il-seong on August 7, 1929. He graduated from Gukmin University with a graduate degree in Political Science. In the early sixties, he started working in the film industry and debuted in 1965 with three films that year. In the decade we are dealing with here, Lee only made 7 films. Information for the first 4 of those had been uploaded earlier and can be seen, along with films from most other directors of that decade, by visiting the tab at the top of the page marked The 1970s. As I ran out of links there, his additional films will be linked under the tab The 1970sB

Index of the 1970s: Director Lee Seong-min

27th October 2013

Director Lee Seong-min was born on November 6, 1944. After graduating from the Department of Performing Arts at Joongang University, Lee began work immediately as an assistant director working under a variety of directors including Lee Seong-goo and Park No-shik. He debuted as a full director in 1976. Although not a prolific director, Lee continued to make movies on and off until the early 1990s. In the 1970s, he has four films to his name. To see the films of other directors from this decade, click the tab marked ‘The 1970s’ at the top of the page. (Soon there will be a 1970s B added to the top menu. I have added the maximum amount of links to the THE 1970s– I cannot enter that page to edit anymore. So 1970s B will include films, starting with information on Lee Seong-goo’s posted last weekend, that do not yet have links attached to them. Other decades, except the 1960s, have fewer films than the seventies, so I don’t expect I will have to do this for each ten-year period)

Index of the 1970s: Director Lee Sang-goo

12th October 2013

Lee Sang-goo was born on March 10th, 1944. He graduated from Joongang University where he majored in Performing Arts. Almost immediately after graduating, Lee began work as an assistant director, often under Ko Yeong-nam. He was only 22 when he began his career in film. In the early 1970s, Lee debuted as a director and he made two films in his debut year. His career was not as prolific as his contemporaries and he only made eight films in total and seven of those were made in the decade we are covering here. (Note: The KMDb assigns the 1975 film Fury of the Sun to Lee Sang-goo. This is incorrect. That film was made by Lee Seong-goo. Daum Movies has this listed correctly and a check of the original records confirms that Daum is correct) After his final film in the early 1980s, Lee became a professor at Donghae University and most recently was working as the CEO of Yewoo Productions. Information on his three earliest films had been uploaded previously and can be viewed by clicking the tab at the top of the page marked ‘the 1970s’ and scrolling down the alphabetical list of directors. Below are plates showing posters and information the rest of the five films he made during the seventies. Click the thumbnails to enlarge.
