My name is Yoon Jung Lee, and Iâ€™m a film director and visual artist. Iâ€™ve made various shortÂ films/media-performances/installations and exhibited them internationally, winningÂ several awards.
I was born in Seoul, South Korea. I graduated from Sogang University in English Literature before completing MFA in Film & Video at California Institute of the Arts in 2005. As a visualÂ artist, my experimental works have been introduced at galleries and museums. I also workÂ as a visual director in various performances and as an editor for independent films as wellÂ as working in the directing team on feature movie projects. I was the script supervisorÂ for the movies “THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD” (directed by Jee-woon Kim) and “MY SWEET, YETÂ BRUTAL SWEETHEART” (directed by Jae-gon Son).
