Song Kang-ho Is A Renowned South Korean Actor

1. Papillion (1973) – Director | Franklin J. Schaffner, Casts | Steve McQueen, Dustin Hoffman

This film is said to be Song Kang-ho’s favorite movie. Steve McQueen is also said to be Song Kang-ho’s favorite actor because his acting, charm, small acting, and aura are unforgettable.

2. Nobody Knows (2004) – Director | Kore-eda Hirokazu, Cast | Yûya Yagira

Though the film can be depicted as very sad, its unflinching gaze and unassertive face to reality are very impressive.

3. Obaltan (1960) – Director | Yu Hyun-mok, Cast | Kim Jin Kyu, Choi Mu-ryong

Obaltan is Korea’s one of the greatest masterpieces, and Song Kang-ho thinks it has had a great cinematic influence on later Korean directors. He says it’s amazing that such a masterpiece was made in the late 50s.

4. Son of Saul (2015) – Director | László Nemes, Casts | Géza Röhrig, Levente Molnár

It is a movie that deals with the tragedy of Auschwitz, and although it deals with an enormous tragedy, it is a beautiful film that tells a story about the unshakable beauty and hope of human beings against the backdrop of a true story.
