Beginning of Modernism in Korean Cinema (Kang So-won), Korea’s First Independent Film (Yi Hyo-in)
It was Korea’s first independent film. Considering the sensibilities of the era, its images were shocking and offered a look at the young people of the 70s through a new modern and experimental aesthetic.
Purpose of Production
Although the situation of the Korean film industry at that time was positive, it was no doubt full of confusion and perversion. This movie was made to find a breakthrough in that situation.
