Index of the 70s: Han Heon-myeong and Hong Ui-bong

15th October 2011

Director Han Heon-myeong only made three films, all of them animations.  Two of the three were in the 1970s. He is responsible for the now-infamous changes made to the Golden Bat character, making him far too much like DC Comic’s Batman. His first movie featured Son Oh-kong, the monkey prince from Chinese mythology who has made several appearances in Korean films.

Hong Ui-bong’s made two films during the 1970s as well. His career extended into the 90s but he only made a total of 5 films that received theatrical releases. Most of his films dealt with the life of Koreans in the USA, the sole exception is his final final film. In 1980, his films added a religious aspect which was the dominant theme of his 1990 films.

Index of the 70s: Ha Gil-jong

24th September 2011

Arguably the greatest director of the decade, Ha Gil-jong gave us the famous film March of Fools which managed to give a glimpse of how the youth of the era were struggling for a voice despite the extreme government censorship. However, his career was tragically short. He died at just 38 years old after suffering a massive stroke at the end of February 1979. He first feature length film was in 1972 and his last was released at the beginning of February 1979. Besides March of Fools and its sequel, he also directed the sequel to The Heavenly Homecoming of the Stars — the original was directed by Lee Jang-ho and the third in the series was directed by Lee Kyeong-tae.

I had earlier uploaded the first two of his films. These can be seen by clicking the tab marked ‘the 1970s’ and looking for Ha Gil-jong’s name– the directors are in alphabetical order and many films are uploaded there for your viewing.  The thumbnails below can also be clicked to enlarge and read.  Enjoy!

Index of the 70s: Choi Hyeon-min

24th August 2011

Choi Hyeon-min was born as Choi Woo-il in South Habkyeong Provine, now part of North Korea.  He moved south for his studies and eventually went on to debut as a stage actor. By 1957, he was directing stage plays and in1959 worked as an assistant director to Jeon Chang-geun.  He started in earnest in the movie industry as a planner in the production departments in the mid-60s and continued in that area until 1991.  His directing career was relatively short, beginning in 1972 and finishing in 1983 during which time he directed just 11 films (The KMDb attributes a 12th film to him, but that is actually a creation by Choi In-hyeon)– Choi In-hyeon films are up next…   Click the thumbnail and enlarge to see the full sized plate and read the information.  All the films of the 1970s I have completed so far can be viewed by clicking the tab at the top of this page marked “the 1970s” where the movies are listed by director.

Index of the 1970s: Choi Hoon and others

15th August 2011

Here are some more entries for the index I am building.  This one contains mostly the remaining films of Choi Hoon as well as a number of other directors.  All of these thumbnails can be clicked and enlarged to view the full image and cast/staff information.  You can also click the tab at the top of the page labeled ‘the 1970s’ where they are listed alphabetically by the director’s last name.

oh– the last movie in this set isn’t from the 70s– it is from 2000.  I just put it in there because I made it months ago when I was experimenting with the new design and fonts for these plates.  It may not belong with these films based on year but really, how many of you actually remember Ghost Taxi?
