The third of the KCC’s Korean Literature on Screen events. The film is based on two Kim Young-ha’s novellas: The Photo Shop Murder (available in translation from Jimoondang) and Meditation on Mirror, which to my knowledge (and the author’s knowledge as of two years ago when I last spoke to him on the subject) has not.
As usual, pre-registration is required via the KCC website.
