  • KOFIC and KAFA to Hold Director HUR Jin-ho’s Masterclass
  • by KIM Hyun-jung /  Apr 11, 2017
  • Class with Melodrama Master

    Korean Film Council (KOFIC) and Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA) will host director HUR Jin-ho masterclass at CGV’s Cine Library in Myeong-dong, on April 14th. The masterclass will be an opportunity to share director HUR’s film world and directing know-how for filmmakers, film students and general audiences. 

    HUR graduated from the Philosophy department of Yonsei University and completed the 9th KAFA. He joined the film directing team in director PARK Kwang-su’s To The Starry Island (1993) and took part in writing the screenplay of A Single Spark (1995). He finally made his directorial debut with Christmas in August (1998) which won the Best Picture prize at the Blue Dragon Awards while his second film, One Fine Spring Day (2001) starring LEE Young-ae and YOO Ji-tae also received the same prize. His films such as April Snow (2005), Happiness (2007) and A Good Rain Knows (2009) are considered fabulous melodramas. 

    HUR challenged a historical genre for the first time last year directing The Last Princess starring SON Ye-jin. The film about the last princess of the Joseon Dynasty was well-received by critics and audiences and was a box office hit drawing 5.5 million moviegoers. 

    Notification will be texted individually to people chosen for guests on April 12th. Or you can find the list on the KOFIC’s ( and KAFA’s website (
