Index of the 1970s: Director Lee Hyeong-pyo

6th September 2013

Lee Hyeong-pyo is one of my favorite directors from the ’70s. His films were not groundbreaking in this decade, but the ones I have seen have been genuinely entertaining. Lee debuted much earlier in the 1960s and continued making films into the mid-80s. He made nearly three dozen films during the 70s, sixteen of which I had uploaded plates for at an earlier date. They can be viewed by clicking the tab at the top of the page marked “The 1970s.” The remaining movies are listed below. Click the thumbnail to view a full-sized image.

The man who would work in Korean cinema as Lee Hyeok-soo was born on July 18, 1938 as Lee Chang-soo. Moving from his home in Gyeongsan in North Gyeongsang Province to Seoul, Lee graduated from the Sarabeol Art College with a major in Film and Performing Arts. He started working in film as an assistant director in 1964 and directed his first film in 1967. His final film was in 2002, but he was active in other ways as an officer in both the Association of Korean Film Directors and The Motion Picture Association of Korea. Lee made 22 films in the 1970s, four I had already indexed, the remaining 18 are listed below. To see images of his other films, click the tab at the top of the page marked The 1970s.

Index of the 1970s: Directors Lee Han-wook and two others

31st August 2013

This addition to the index is a catch-all for three directors who had a single movie each in this decade.
Lee Han-wook is the only director of the three listed here who had more than one movie in total. He had several films in the previous decade and I will deal with him in more detail when I deal with that decade. There is not much information listed for Lee Hyeon-goo and he probably left film for decades after his one and only stint as a director, except he returned as an actor in the 2007 film, Milky Way Liberation Front. There is also no biography listed for Lee Hyeon-jin. However, his name appears on about a dozen more films as Assistant Director starting in 1969.

Index of the 70s: Director Ko Yeong-nam, part 2

27th July 2013

I finished the films of Ko Yeong-nam! That is a huge step towards completing the index of 1970s Korean films. Oh, there are still quite a few to do.. and some directors with nearly two dozen films left.. but no filmographies are quite like Mr. Ko’s. Some of his films were very difficult to come up with images for. Finishing his works for this decade has me looking forward to the future. When I finish the 70s, should I continue with the 80s? Go backwards to the 60s? go to the next tab at the top of the page– the 2000s– or don’t restrict myself to any one decade, just upload images as I feel? There is still time to think about it, I am not done yet..

Index of the 70s: Director Ko Ho

23rd July 2013

I was all set to write off Director Ko as a one-hit wonder..and his film wasn’t even a hit.. Fortunately, after a little searching, I learned that Director Ko Ho was actually Ko Eung-ho, a moderately prolific director of the 1980s. Ko Eung-ho was born in Seoul on January 4, 1941 and attended Geonguk University majoring in law. He was not at all interested in the systematic study of law and claimed he was far more interested in studying society and the various kinds of lives people live. After graduating in the late 60s, he started to work as an assistant director– most often under Director Choi In-hyeon and debuted as Ko Ho in 1978 with the film shown below. This was the only film for which he used an alias and it was his only movie that he directed in this decade. We will be dealing with him again when I begin the movies of the 1980s..

Index of the 70s: Director Kim Yeong-hyo

20th July 2013

Kim Yeong-hyo was born on February 17, 1931 in Cheolwon, Gangwon Province. After graduating from university with an Economics degree, Kim went straight into acting appearing in minor roles in many films in the late 1950s including Shin Sang-ok’s Flower in Hell. He put his his acting career on hold to complete his military service but when he returned to the film industry, it was as a director. He worked as an assistant director for a couple of years and debuted with a film he wrote himself in the mid-1960s. Kim Yeong-hyo’s directorial career takes takes him through several decades, but he was most active in the 1970s with more a dozen films under his belt. I had already included a few of his films in the index and information on them, and films from other directors of this decade, can be seen by clicking the tab marked ‘The 1970s’ at the top of the page.

Index of the 70s: Director Kim Tae-jong

17th July 2013

Director Kim Tae-jong has just a single movie to his name,

kimtaejong1979 whiteeagle This is something that may look familiar to anyone who was alive in the late-70s. When I was a child in the USA, an animated television program debuted in 1978 called Battle of the Planets starring a team called G-Force. Much later, I learned that this was actually modified Japanese program called Gatchaman. What you are looking at however, is not Gatchaman. It is a much inferior knockoff that would certainly land a lawsuit for copyright violation today. How inferior was it? Well, take a look below. The first video you will see is the opening for Kim Tae-jong’s White Eagle. Below that is the opening from Battle of the Planets. Judge for yourself.

White Eagle

Battle of the Planets

Waitaminute! That was terrible too! I had totally forgotten about the stupid robot.. Turns out, the original Gatchaman beginning is superior to both of the previous videos.
