"Woman on the Beach, Mr. Hong, a wry, unsparing anatomist of the romantic discontent of South Korean twenty-and thirty somethings, has made his most coherent and emotionally accessible film yet.”
- A.O. Scott, The New York Times, September 29, 2006.
The 7th film of Mr. Hong, the forerunner of Korean New Wave since his debut with The day of a Pig Fell into the Well in 1996, Woman on the Beach is a romance film between a man and woman who spend a day together during a trip.
This film was invited to several well-known film festivals including the New York Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival.
Guest Speaker Ms. Hyun-Ock Im will introduce the film and lead a discussion after the screening.
