Index of the 1970s: Director Lee Sang-goo

12th October 2013

Lee Sang-goo was born on March 10th, 1944. He graduated from Joongang University where he majored in Performing Arts. Almost immediately after graduating, Lee began work as an assistant director, often under Ko Yeong-nam. He was only 22 when he began his career in film. In the early 1970s, Lee debuted as a director and he made two films in his debut year. His career was not as prolific as his contemporaries and he only made eight films in total and seven of those were made in the decade we are covering here. (Note: The KMDb assigns the 1975 film Fury of the Sun to Lee Sang-goo. This is incorrect. That film was made by Lee Seong-goo. Daum Movies has this listed correctly and a check of the original records confirms that Daum is correct) After his final film in the early 1980s, Lee became a professor at Donghae University and most recently was working as the CEO of Yewoo Productions. Information on his three earliest films had been uploaded previously and can be viewed by clicking the tab at the top of the page marked ‘the 1970s’ and scrolling down the alphabetical list of directors. Below are plates showing posters and information the rest of the five films he made during the seventies. Click the thumbnails to enlarge.
