Pride of Korean indie movie
29 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Ik-Joon Yang is the director, writer, and main actor in this movie. He produced this movie using his private money.

The home of Yeon-Hue, the main actress, is Ik-Joon's renting house. After recording all scene in the house, he moved out from his home because his money run out and he needed his deposit in the house.

He spent his every money to this movie, and fortunately this movie hits the 5rd best in the Korea indie movie history. Many Japanese also watched this movie in the theater.

I really appreciate his marble art; Breathless and King of the pigs
