DIRECTOR - YIM Soonrye
Director Yim Soonrye completed her bachelor’s degree in English Literature and master’s in Theater and Film at Hanyang University, followed by a master’s in Film Studies at Paris 8 University.

Yim began her film career as an assistant director on Out to the World (Yeo Kyun-dong, 1994), after which her short film, Promenade in the Rain (1994), gained immediate recognition, winning the Grand Prize and the Press Award at Seoul Short Film Festival in 1994. With an exquisitely detailed mise en scène, this film depicted the emptiness of life for an unmarried woman in her thirties working in the ticket booth of a theater on the outskirts of town. For her debut feature, Three Friends (1998), Yim took on the roles of screenwriter, producer, and director; the film cementing her reputation as a remarkable talent.

Over 20 years, she has worked on more than 10 films, including directing Waikiki Brothers (2001), Forever the Moment (2007) and The Whistleblower (2014), enjoying huge success both commercially and artistically.
SYNOPSIS
Born in Pyongan-namdo, as the son of an influential local man, Lee Jung-Seob lived together with his mother and brother. Lee’s talent was recognized early and his work was selected for the 3rd Exhibition of Korean Students when he was just 17 years old. In 1936, he flew to Japan to study Occidental Painting at Teikoku Art School, from where he was expelled. He then entered Bunka Gakuen University, where he met a woman named Yamamoto Masako who would later become his wife.

They were married in Wonsan in 1945, and had two sons, after tragically losing their first child to diphtheria. In December 1949, Lee and his family fled from the war to Busan, where they suffered financial hardship; Lee having to work as a day laborer in a refugee camp. After two years, he briefly moved to Jeju before once again returning to Busan later that year and joining an organization to preserve national culture.

In 1952, Masako left for Japan with their two sons, and Lee moved to Tong-young, where he held a solo exhibition. He then went to Daegu, where he was branded a communist, detained by the police, and eventually hospitalized. Lee stopped writing letters to his wife and refused food until he was moved to a mental hospital. Undergoing painting therapy improved his condition to the point where he was able to design a cover for an important cultural magazine, but Lee was to die alone of hepatitis in a Red Cross hospital on Sept. 6, 1956.
