    BAE is one of the most successful directors of the 80s. In addition, his social dramas are critically acclaimed. Among his classics are Whale Hunting and Our Happy Days of Youth which was rereleased on DVD by Taehung Pictures Collection in 2006.


    BAE continued his career in the 90s and My Heart (1999) is among his internationally better known films which garnered acclaim at international film festivals.


    BAE is a prolific director and his latest film Road (Gil) was released in 2004. The film chronicles two troubled souls who encounter each other on a rural road. Road toured several international film festivals and won the major award at the 2005 Philadelphia International Film Festival.
