Index of the 70s: Director Kim Shi-hyeon

6th July 2013

Director Kim Shi-hyeon was born in Daegu on December 27, 1935. After finishing high school in his hometown, Kim moved to Seoul and entered the Pharmaceutical Department at Seoul National University. It was not for him and he dropped out during his second year of study. In 1964, he landed a job as an assistant director working under Jeong Cheong-hwa and debuted as a director in his own right the following year. In the decade related to this post, Kim made 32 films. Several of these I had previously posted images for and can be viewed by clicking the tab at the top of the page marked ‘The 1970s.’ The rest are below.
