Chunhyang

The most expensive movie ever made in South Korea, this romantic drama is based on the national epic of Korea, a sort of "Cinderella" tale of love, honor and betrayal. Chunhyang, the beautiful daughter of a courtesan, is secretly married to the governor's son, but when her husband is transferred to Seoul to finish his government exams, she is left behind. When a new governor is transfered in, Chunhyang is ordered to become a courtesan herself. She refuses, wishing to be loyal to her husband, and is jailed. Will her absentee hubby return in time to save her honor? The entire epic tale is narrated in the traditional Korea opera style known as pansori. Naturally, glorious scenery and gorgeous costumes abound. 120 minutes
