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..
