Arirang
Expressing the pent-up rage and sorrows of the people who lost their fatherland, the landmark movie gave compelling inspiration to early Korean movies. It also served as a stepping stone to making Chunsa "Na Woon-Kyu" (1902-1937) into a star of that time. Called the pioneer of Korean movies, he carried out voracious activities in various areas as an actor, director, script writer and moviemaker. Having acted in his youth as a leader of the national independence movement against Japan, he worked tirelessly to lead the era of silent films ever since his entrance into the movie world until his death at the age of 36, was produced in 1926 by Chosun Kinema Production.
