director Shin Sang-ok
Ching Lee · Lin Wei-Tu · Chan Shao-Hung · Chen Feng-Chen


A moody, traditional, atmospheric HK ghost film shot in Korea by one of their legendary filmmakers, Shin Sang-ok (MY MOTHER AND HER GUEST). Hong Kong actress Ching Lee plays Sung Lien-hua, a chronically ill maiden hanging onto life as she awaits the arrival of Han, her betrothed. But enroute, he is robbed and beaten; Shun dies before Han can join her. Now, her ghost is unable to enter heaven until she marries to her soulmate and consumates their love.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il was a huge movie fan. He especially like the films of South Korean director Shin Sang-Ok and he wanted Shin to make a monster movie for him. When the filmmaker refused, Dictator Kim kidnapped Shin Sang-Ok and his wife. They were forcibly taken to North Korea and forced to make PULGASARI. Shortly before the final edit, the two sought and were granted asylum in the United States. The movie was released in 1985. Shin Sang-Ok returned to his home in South Korea where he continued his career. He died in April 2006 after complications during a liver transplant, at age 79.
