So sit back, relax, and get ready to be introduced to Korean Cinema: The New Hong Kong!
Comments about the book
"It's designed for people who are in the process of discovering Korean film, and it's especially useful for people who are building DVD collections. Anthony approaches the industry as a fan of Hong Kong cinema who has gravitated towards Korean films in recent years... 266 pages in total, so there's a lot of information... I'd recommend it."
(Darcy Paquet, Koreanfilm.org, Screen International correspondent, and English language editor for the Korean Film Commission)
"Anthony Leong has taken the study of Asian Cinema to the next level. This book helps make sense of Korean cinema. It's an authoritative text, yet thoroughly entertaining, while being the definitive word of this exploding motion picture genre. No film enthusiast should be caught without this book"
(Thomas Weisser, Editor of Asian Cult Cinema magazine)
"...the book undoubtedly succeeds in its self-proclaimed role as 'a guidebook for the latest Korean New Wave' and as such provides an entertaining and informative read for those new to Korean cinema, or those who have already been converted and are seeking guidance as to what film to buy next."
(Barry Woodcock, DVDTimes)
"Korean Cinema: The New Hong Kong is essential reading for anyone interested in Korean cinema. I learned more about the Korean film industry from reading Anthony Leong's comprehensive book than I had by working with the Korean film industry for over two years."
(Roy Lee, Vertigo Entertainment, Executive Producer of "The Ring")
