Director Lee Myung-se [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]
"I'm seeing someone." The man confessed very clearly. Although the wife did not hear because of the sound of the vacuum cleaner. Film "Their Last Love Affair," on screen for the first time in 15 years, was still beautiful. To the observer they may just be another couple having an affair but they love more earnestly than any other, warming their bodies with coal and kissing in the midst of eating chicken stew. Director Lee Myung-se, who appeared in front of an audience who cheered after the movie, defended their short-lived yet intense love by stating, "If you were truly in love with someone, you'd be able to kiss that person even with greasy lips."
Lee Myung-se, currently at the 12th Jeonju International Film Festival (JIFF) with eight of his former films ranging from "Gagman" to "M," is probably one of the busiest men in the city -- he has to meet with the audience of his films everyday, do an endless string of interviews, and his next project titled "Mister K" has "just emerged from the fog to show its form." The film, to be directed by Yoon Jae-kyun and starring Sul Kyung-gu, will be the Korean version of the "James Bond" series. He seemed confident about the upcoming pic, saying he will "win back" his male audience who had enjoyed "Nowhere to Hide." It is through films that Lee invites us into his dreams. We have yet to step into "Mister K" but it already excites us. We have yet to stop loving this director.
