  • 최은희 CHOI Eun-hee Play all

    The life of Choi Eun-hee has been only for film; after she debuted with A NEW OATH in 1947, she became the best star in the Korean film scene in the 1950s and 60s and the the third female director in Korean film history to produce THE GIRL RASIED AS A FUTURE DAUGHTER-IN LAW; she had worked as a principal of Anyang Film Art School since 1967 fostering younger students for filmmaking. In 1978, however she and her husband SHIN Sang-ok was kidnapped to North Korea and started to produce films together there. The life path looks like a film; finally they trod the paths of exile from Vienna, Austria to the U.S. in 1986.
