Gender : Male

Nationality : South Korea

Company :

JUNG Ji-woo became a star short film director with <A Bit Bitter>(1996), which was produced by an independent film production, Generation Blue Films, and achieved both box office success in Korea and film festival honors overseas with his feature debut, <Happy End>(1999). A crime-of-passion melodrama so unprecedentedly bold, the movie could not cast any actress for the leading female role until JEON Do-youn came along. The movie was also an important turning point in her acting career. <Blossom Again>(2005) was a less bold melodrama that starred KIM Jung-eun and JUNG Yu-mi, which still showcased JUNG’s sensible directing skills and his sensitivity, while <Modern Boy>(2008) was the director’s challenge to the genre of historical suspense. JUNG also worked on the screenplay of KANG Woo-suk’s <The Moss>(2009). In 2012, JUNG burst back onto the scene with the literary and Lolita-esque drama <Eungyo>, which introduced KIM Go-eun to the world and featured PARK Hae-il playing an old poet. Three years later, he premiered his competitive sports drama <Fourth Place> at the Busan International Film Festival.
