Defending Kim Ki-duk... It is an open secret that the world-famous director Kim Ki-duk's movies have been ignored by the local audience. It didn't matter much because his movies were always a big success at the international festivals and his fans enjoy them everywhere in the world. Maybe he did care about the Korean reception of his movies after all.

During the runaway success of THE HOST, he made some remarks, which angered the Korean audience. Now he has come to apologize for his words and unbelievably his movies. Could you imagine Woody Allen apologizing for his movies because they're, uh, self-centered?

Truly sad. In a way, I am angry that he apologized. What about the people like me who liked his movies? What are we? Morons?

Filmmakers should makes movies not talk. It's a valuable lesson how not to shoot yourself in the foot.
