Shin Sang-Ok

After hearing about how North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il kidnapped filmmaker Shin Sang-Ok to make films in the north for a decade, we take a closer look at the director’s work. Shin was a prolific and popular filmmaker in South Korea in the 1960s. His studio made more than 300 movies. He died in 2006 at the age of 80. What are his movies about, and why were they important?
