Kim Jeong-hyeon was born on July 4th, 1942 in Jinju where he completed his education at the middle school level. He had one dream..to be involved with movies but without education or connections it seemed hopeless. He was considered to be good-looking so he attempted to audition as an actor, but failed. Instead, he wound up with a job as a cameraman and later an assistant director. From on site experience, he received the training he needed to become a director. 1976 was the year he debuted with If You Cry, You Are a Fool. However, he only made a handful of movies and the last film credited to him was in 1985. He passed away on October 5, 2009.
