Product Description

Review

"Here is an excellent book to add to the too-short shelf of work on the cinema of South Korea, which of late has produced some excellent films.... Deftly illustrated with frame blowups, and including useful appendixes charting box-office hits, film production overall in South Korea, and award-wining films, Choi's book provides an energetic, accessible overview of the Korean cinema as a popular art form. An excellent choice as either a course text or a library resource, this book fills a particular niche. Highly recommended (for) all readers."--W.W. Dixon, Choice

Here is an excellent book to add to the too-short shelf of work on the cinema of South Korea, which of late has produced some excellent films . Deftly illustrated with frame blowups, and including useful appendixes charting box-office hits, film production overall in South Korea, and award-wining films, Choi s book provides an energetic, accessible overview of the Korean cinema as a popular art form. An excellent choice as either a course text or a library resource, this book fills a particular niche. Highly recommended (for) all readers. W.W. Dixon, "Choice""

"Choi's book does admirably what it sets out to do: to explain, from a theoretically critical, technical/aesthetic point of view, how Korean cinema modernized itself in the face of many challenges, both domestic and international." Gord Sellar, "The Japan Times""

"South Korean Film Renaissance: Local Hit Makers, Global Provocateurs, written by Choi Jin-hee in English probes how the Korean film industry turned an economic crisis into a cinematic renaissance . The book gives an exact historical chronicled assessment of the Korean film industry" Chung Ah-young, "The Korea Times""

"It's a well-roundsed examination that knits together the many filmic strands of the last two decades to construct a thesis on how the 'renaissance' occurred." James Havis & Borah Chung, "Cineaste""
