Korean Cinema NOW | The Spy Gone North / 공작

Directed by Jong-bin Yoon

The Spy Gone North / 공작 The Spy Gone North / 공작
2017 | 137 Minutes | Jong-bin Yoon

Free | Open to the public | In Korean with English subtitles

"Based on the testimony of infamous South Korean spy “Black Venus,” who once infiltrated the highest ranks of North Korean leadership, Yoon Jong-bin’s “The Spy Gone North” recounts a tortuous operation that’s more fascinating and far-fetched than many fictional espionage yarns. Instead of the usual dose of action and suspense one expects of this genre, watching this dense 140-minute political drama unfold is like fumbling through a long tunnel that’s nonetheless worth it when the ray of light emerges at the end. Though nowhere near as crowd-pleasing as the recent espionage action-fantasy “Steel Rain,” this well-crafted work deserves to be seen for its thorough account of intricate workings of secret service and political skullduggery." - Maggie Lee, Variety
