Hong Sangsoo made the astounding debut with his first feature film The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well in 1996. Since then, through the 20 films that he wrote and directed, Hong has consistently enjoyed using a complex and highly ordered architecture under a seemingly random surface created by spontaneous circumstances in depicting the characters in his films. Renowned for his unique cinematographic language and unprecedented esthetics in filmmaking, Hong Sangsoo is considered as one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema.
