Cast & Credits
Jang's personality portrayed in the film is very complicated, and one of Korea's best actors, Choi, Min-sik, is deep in the soul of Jang. The suffering eyes reveal the struggle of the life of a great artist. He is very serious at times, but all of a sudden, he switches to a wild maniac. He drinks like an alcoholic, and sleeps with courtesans at any moment. Even, he said in the film, "No alcohol and woman, I can not draw." An alcohol and women are my only inspiration. "At the peak of fame, to develop his own style, he travels around the country, and never give up his pride as an artist for authority or money.
The most amazing thing about this movie is a cinematography. It is as impressive as they captured all the beautiful scenery. Yes, each scene is like a work of Jang painting. And the script is perfect too. It deals primarily with a deeper meaning than a true artist does. For example, Kim advises Jang in the film that "before someone holds a brush, you have to set a goal in life." This is a very exciting and inspiring line, and there are many more.
