South Korean Cinema: Week 1 - Precarity
April 5, 2023
South Korean Cinema: An Unconventional Crash Course
What is South Korean cinema? To open our course, we will begin conceptualizing the stylistic tendencies, genres, and concerns that connect South Korean films today. To do so, we will consider three films that center the issue of precarity (political, economic, and social): Park Chan-wook’s box office-smashing JSA (2000), Bong Joon-ho’s globally historic Parasite (2019), and Jeong Jae-eun’s pathbreaking classic Take Care of My Cat (2001).
