Sung-nyu Kim in Chunhyang


2000 R

Mongryong (Seung-woo Cho) is the privileged son of a governor who falls for Chunhyang (Hyo-jeong Lee), the beautiful daughter of a former courtesan. The couple marries in secret, but when Mongryong is ordered to complete his education, a new governor (Jung-hun Lee) desires his wife. If she chooses to reject him and stay true to her husband, lifelong imprisonment -- or death -- awaits her. The film nabbed a nomination at the Cannes Film Festival.
