I didn’t know I was talking to Im Sang-soo, a Korean film-maker last week.
After a talk with him, I asked a lady who was I talking to and she smiled and said “You were talking to Im Sang-soo. He is a popular film-maker here in Korea. His films were shown in festivals abroad like Cannes and Venice”. “Oh, ok”, I replied:-).
When I went home, I googled him, hehehe. He is a controversial director because of the theme of his movies but all of which are critically-acclaimed and some were box office hits. He is working on a new film now titled “The Taste of Money” which will star Kim Kang-Woo, Baek Yun-Shik and Yoon Yeo-Jung. There is no release date yet but we’ll just have to watch out for it next year, 2012:-).
