Director Lee Joon Ik (The Throne) and screenwriter Shin Yeon Shick (The Russian Novel) depict the life and times of famous poet Yoon Dong Ju in the acclaimed biopic Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet. Set during the Japanese colonial period, the film stars Kang Ha Neul (Twenty) as the introspective young poet and Park Jung Min (Tinker Ticker) as his rash activist cousin, both of whom would become intertwined with the resistance movement. The black-and-white drama garnered the Grand Prize as well as Best New Actor for Park Jung Min at the 52nd Baeksang Arts Awards.
Under Japanese colonial rule, the use of Korean language is prohibited. Poet Yoon Dong Ju (Kang Ha Neul) plans to publish poems about his harsh life but his project is banned by the Japanese administration. Seeing his incredible writing talents, a Japanese professor suggests that Dong Ju publish the poems in English. However, before finishing his work, Dong Ju and his cousin Song Mong Kyu (Park Jung Min) are imprisoned for taking part in the Korean independence movement.
This edition comes with a booklet, commentaries, deleted scenes, production videos, poster shooting, music video, poetry collection, photo commentary and trailers.
