Index of the 1970s: Director Lee Jang-ho II

15th September 2013

Lee Jang-ho was born in Seoul on May 15, 1945. He attended university at Hongik University where he majored in Architecture. He hated it. Instead, he wanted to study film and make movies. So he began working and studying under director Shin Sang-ok. He made just a handful of films in the 70s, debuting in 1974. Of these movies, The Heavenly Homecoming of the Stars is probably the most well-known, but he would go on to greater fame during the 1980s. Below are his films from the 70s. You can click the thumbnails to see a larger image. You can also visit the tab marked “the 1970s” at the top of the page for information and images from other films produced during that decade.

With a long Chuseok holiday approaching this week, it is unusual to just see a single Korean film being released. But that is the case this coming week with only RUSSIAN NOVEL opening in theaters. But both Spy and Face Reader opened recently and are doing well, so they may be among the big draws over the holiday.

Index of the 1970s: Director Lee Hyeong-pyo

6th September 2013

Lee Hyeong-pyo is one of my favorite directors from the ’70s. His films were not groundbreaking in this decade, but the ones I have seen have been genuinely entertaining. Lee debuted much earlier in the 1960s and continued making films into the mid-80s. He made nearly three dozen films during the 70s, sixteen of which I had uploaded plates for at an earlier date. They can be viewed by clicking the tab at the top of the page marked “The 1970s.” The remaining movies are listed below. Click the thumbnail to view a full-sized image.

Index of the 1970s: Directors Lee Han-wook and two others

31st August 2013

This addition to the index is a catch-all for three directors who had a single movie each in this decade.
Lee Han-wook is the only director of the three listed here who had more than one movie in total. He had several films in the previous decade and I will deal with him in more detail when I deal with that decade. There is not much information listed for Lee Hyeon-goo and he probably left film for decades after his one and only stint as a director, except he returned as an actor in the 2007 film, Milky Way Liberation Front. There is also no biography listed for Lee Hyeon-jin. However, his name appears on about a dozen more films as Assistant Director starting in 1969.
