[Interview] Lee Kyoung-mi: I have always been drawn to the ironies and irrationalities of society - New York Asian Film Festival

Lee Kyoung-mi was born in Seoul, and graduated with a Russian degree from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. After working at a company for three years, she entered the School of Film, TV Multimedia of the Korea National University of Arts, graduating with a major in Filmmaking in 2004. Her short film "Feel Good Story", about an employee given the task of figuring out how her company can evade paying taxes, garnered several awards in the film festival circuit in 2004.

Lee made her feature directorial debut with "Crush and Blush" , a black comedy about an obsessive teacher and an outcast student who bond over their shared misanthropy; a critic called it "one of those rare films from an up-and-coming auteur that shows both guts and playfulness". It was the first film to be produced by Park Chan-wook; Lee had previously worked as a scripter/assistant director on Park's 2005 film "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance"

[Videos] Suspenseful main trailer and interview for emotionally-driven film "Method"

After watching this trailer for "Method", I admit to feeling completely out-of-sorts. I was so engrossed in the intensity fostered between Park Sung-woong and Oh Seung-hoon that I almost didn't realize it had ended. They play a dangerous game, delving into method acting in a way that makes others worry. Such character explorations also foster new emotions, which I'm sure we will see revealed on screen in November. Also take a look at the creative mind behind this work in the interview below.

-Yours, Lisa, who needs a glass of cold water

Furthermore, upon its release in Japan in 2005, became the most successful Korean film ever in the country.

The film is split in two parts. The first one describes the courtship of the two and the second their lives together, which are shattered when Soo-jin is diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
