One thought on “A surprise screening of ‘White Badge’ with Director Chung Ji-young

    • Colette Balmain: Hopefully I have booked my place. Am looking 4ward to it.
    • Daniel Martin: This film is a proper masterpiece (though Chung’s ‘Partisans of South Korea’ is even better). It’s shameful that they’re announcing this with so little notice.
    • Kay Hoddy: if only it wsn’t when i am working…. *whines and pouts*
    • Jiyoung Song: “Piagol”, another partisan story and one of the first anti-communism movies released in 1955 in South Korea, which wasn’t anti-communist enough for SK government’s eyes at that time, was shown in Cambridge last Friday with Director Jung’s Q&A in the end though it wasn’t his own. That was a fantastic event. Wish many people could go since I’m sure…
