KIM Jee-yong Earns Top Camerimage Prize for THE FORTRESS
Korean Cinematographer Earns Coveted Golden Frog

 

by Pierce Conran KoBiz // EnergaCAMERIMAGE 2018

 

This past weekend, KIM Jee-yong earned the Golden Frog Award from the 26th edition of EnergaCamerimage, the world’s top cinematography event which takes place in Bydgoszcz, Poland every year, for his work on HWANG Dong-hyuk’s austere siege drama The Fortress (2017). It is the first time that a cinematographer from Korea has earned the prize. 

 

Meanwhile, the Silver and Bronze prizes were picked up by Paweł PAWLIKOWSKI’s Cold War and Alfonso CUARÓN’s Roma, respectively. Earlier this year, KIM earned the Best Cinematography Awards from the Asian Film Awards and the Korean Association of Film Critics Awards, also for The Fortress.

 

Released during last year’s Chuseok holiday, The Fortress features PARK Hae-il as the King of Joseon who confers with his ministers, played by KIM Yun-seok and LEE Byung-hun, about whether to surrender to the Qing Army invaders laying siege to their fortress.

 

KIM Jee-yong, who spent time working in America before returning to Korea, made his debut as a feature cinematographer on KIM Jee-woon’s action-thriller A Bittersweet Life (2005). He has continued to work frequently with KIM, having shot his Hollywood debut The Last Stand with Arnold SCHWARZENEGGER in 2013, as well as his acclaimed colonial-era espionage yarn The Age of Shadows (2016).

 

Prior to The Fortress, KIM also shot Director HWANG’s previous films Silenced (2011) and Miss Granny (2014). Other notable credits include YIM Pil-sung’s Hansel and Gretel (2007), JANG Joon-hwan’s Hwayi: A Monster Boy (2013) and LEE Won-suk’s The Royal Tailor (2014).

Bring you nice clip from 

The show is called "Pocha without border" (Pocha = Pojangmacha, a street food stall you can see in Korea, sell drinks and foods). I think they go abroad and I see old movie star Park Joonghoon here and current star Shin Sekyung(I remember her from drama, Deep rooted tree) cooking and serving foods here. In this clip, a French writer, Bernard Werber(Famous in Korea for the book , Empire of the ants),  visited with his friend a movie script writer. His friend is talking about the movie "I saw the devil", that it's his all time favourite movie.

 

Not in this clip, but later Bernard Werber said he liked the movie, "The Chaser" and "The Fortress". (Source) Hey, they happen to have great tastes in movies, just like us. :D
