The Servant (Bang-Ja Jeon)

Directed by Kim Dae-woo. With Kim Joo-hyuk, Ryu Seung-beom, Jo Yeo-jeong, and Oh-Dal-su. The Servant is told from the point-of-view of Bang-ja, a personal servant to Lee Mong-ryong, an aristocratic scholar, Both men love Chun-hyang, but as Mong-ryong courts her with the prospects of marriage, Bang-ja begins an illicit affair - which Mong-ryong soon discovers. In Kim Dae-woo’s re- telling of the classic folk tale Chun-hyang, the Servant illustrates the pursuit of love and class status with adventurous scheming, eroticism, and humor. 124 min.
