Christmas In August

Director: Hur Jin-Ho Cast: Suk-Kyu, Shim Eun-Ha, Shin Koo

DVD (Wide Screen)


Hur Jin-Ho's directorial debut came with this low-key Korean drama about a photographer, Jung-Won (Han Suk-Kyu), who runs a small studio in the almost rural environs of suburban Seoul. Days pass as he goes about his studio routines, enlarging class photos and taking family portraits. One day, Jung-Won meets young meter maid Da-Rim (Shim Eun-Ha) when she enters his establishment with a request for photos of parking violations. They make an unlikely twosome and are not immediately attracted to each other. Even so, they go on a date to an amusement park. Over time, a friendship develops, but Jung-Won has an unspecified terminal illness, a fact which is known only to his immediate family. Shown in the Critics Week section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
