Since her film debut in Kim Ki-young's Woman of Fire (1971), Youn Yuh-jung refused to compromise her practice to serve the patriarchal systems which dominate the majority of mainstream cinema in Korea. As an iconic figure and role model to many actors in Korea Youn continues to push boundaries in her incredible scope of storytelling, routed through her bold forthright perception of each character she portrays. This series highlights the diverse range of works that contribute to Youn's timeless cinematic legacy.
