Bio
Bong Joon-ho is a South Korean film director and screenwriter.

He is a graduate of the Korean Academy of Film Arts. Bong directed multiple critically-acclaimed short films before his feature film debut Barking Dogs Never Bite in 2000. For his 2003 film Memories of Murder, he won the South Korean film industry's Grand Bell Award for best film director.
