Few people made an impact as big as Lee Chang Dong in the Korean Cinema of the last 10 years. A former novelist and scriptwriter of masterpieces like To the Starry Island, Lee made his debut in 1997 with Green Fish, along with black comedy No. 3, arguably the best Korean gangster film of the last twenty years. The acclaim of the critics and countless festival invitations were only the beginning of a pluri-decorated career, which continued to shine with his 1999 film Peppermint Candy, putting the spotlight on amazing actors like Moon So Ri and Seol Kyung Gu.
