Index of the 1970s: Director Kim Seong-soo

4th July 2013

I just came back from a trip to Jeju Island and I am keep dozing off.. I had a great time, but I need a nap! So I will keep this short. Fortunately, the next director on the list is Kim Seong-soo, (1938-2004) and had only two movies in the decade covered by the post. He was born Kim Seok-gyu in Ulsan on September 20, 1938. While he was attending Seokgyunkwan University in Seoul, he also took classes at a film academy and that proved to be where his passion lay. He starting working as an assistant director in the mid-60s and debuted with his own films in the late seventies. His career took him through the middle of the 1990s. Kim Seong-soo is a common name and this Kim should not be confused with another director, still active today, who shares that name. There have also been several actors by that name as well.
