  • by TAE Sang-joon /  Jul 29, 2013
  • Crowd-Funding for Post-Production Being Carried Out

    Director PARK Chan-kyong makes a comeback with a new film, Mansin: Ten Thousand Spirits. Also well known as an installation artist who utilizes videos and photos, PARK Chan-kyong is the younger brother of director PARK Chan-wook, known for Old Boy (2003) and Stoker. The two have been working together as PARKingCHANce, co-directing the two short films Night Fishing (2011) and Day Trip. Park Chan-kyong previously directed Anyang, Paradise City (2011), which tells about the history of Korean cities that have grown rapidly through the past and present of Anyang. The film won the JJ-STAR Prize at the 12th Jeonju International Film Festival while Night Fishing picked up the Golden Bear Prize, the grand prize in the short section of the Berlin International Film Festival in 2011.
    Mansin: Ten Thousand Spirits is a combination of a documentary and a fantasy. The film sheds new light on the modern history of Korea through the checkered past and exorcism-based imagination of shaman KIM Geum-hwa. The word ‘Mansin’ from the film’s title is an honorific word for a shaman. The film stars KIM Sae-ron, RYU Hyun-kyung and MOON So-ri, who each play KIM Geum-hwa at different ages. They agreed to act in the film straight after reading the script. Crowd-funding for the post-production work for Mansin: Ten Thousand Spirits is being carried out to premiere the film in the second half of this year. Funding 21, a crowd-funding platform, announced that they will conduct a funding project for the post-production work for Mansin: Ten Thousand Spirits on its homepage ( from July 22nd to September 9th.
