DirectorPARK Chankyong

Over many years of division‚ North and South Korea have become like a hall of mirrors where it is difficult to tell the real from the false. Inspired by real people who have traveled between North and South amid this division‚ this film depicts a relationship between the two that is so deeply skewed that it is impossible to tell what anyone is working to achieve. The film is screened in one of two rooms designed to resemble the film set‚ while the other room is made to resemble the North Korean security agency’s ‘interrogation room’ set from the film. Appearing in the cast are actors Lee Min-ji‚ Oh Tae-kyung‚ Park Ji-hwan‚ and Eom Hyo-seob. This 2018 work was commissioned from PARKing CHANce by the Asia Culture Center (ACC).

Program Note

 Believe it Or Not is the 8th work of PARKing CHANce, an art project led by the brothers Park Chan-wook and Park Chan-kyong. With a theme of double agent, it was inspired by real people who have travelled between North and South amid the division. It is Park Chan-kyong’s latest film which premiered as an installation art at the Asia Culture Center last year. It tells a story of Seolhee dispatched to South Korea as a double agent in disguise of North Korean defector after getting caught copying a disc out of love for South Korean dramas. It is a symbolic black comedy that explores the complex, interwoven relationship between the two Koreas.
