Bae Yong-kyun was born in 1951 in Tae-gu. His parents sent him to an eliteschool that was oriented rather European-occidental. He left school after a phase of depression in order to live several months as an eremite in the mountains. With his regained inner strength he finished school and went to the faculty of arts at the university in Seoul. Already in his early years he was interested in scriptwriting and filmtechnique. He acquired his entire cinematographic knowledge as an autodidact by reading books. The successful masterpiece "Why has Bodhi Dharma left for the east" is his first film.
