Based on the Pansori folk song of the same title, Chunhyang tells the tale of two-star crossed lovers, Mongryong, the son of a nobleman, and Chungyang, the daughter of a retired couretsan. Im Kwon-taek’s modern re-telling of this classic love story explores the harsh, often tragic realities of class differences in 18th century Korea.
We are delighted to welcome the director Im Kwon-taek for a Q&A, following this screening.
Dir. Im Kwon-taek, South Korea, 2000. 134 mins. Korean with English subtitles.
