This course offers a survey of Korean film history in light of cinema's relationship to the masses. As a popular art form, cinema has always been in close contact with its audiences. Cinema has contributed to the emergence of modern masses. By examining how cinema has shaped its audiences and vice versa, this course will chart the development of Korean cinema as a popular entertainment as well as an art form during the last hundred years. Our journey will start from the globalization of Korean cinema and its transnational audiences and chronologically hark back to the colonial period.
