born 1954 Daegu, South Korea


“I always ask myself, can I change the world with my work? Of course I know it doesn’t change that much. But I should do something to make a difference. In a way, I see making cinema as like lighting a candle in a dark place.”

Lee Chang-Dong is a former high-school teacher and an acclaimed novelist. His debut film "Green Fish" (1997) brought immediate success and critical acclaim. "Peppermint Candy" (2000), seemingly having the same 'lost innocence' theme as his former work, shoots fiery criticisms against the still-powerful remnants of the Korean military dictatorship regime. With "Oasis" (2002) Lee received countless awards, including the Special Director's Award at the Venice Film Festival. Since 2003, Lee worked as the Minister of Culture in the newly elected liberal national government.
