Lee Jung Gook is a South Korean film director and screenwriter. Lee's feature debut Song of Resurrection (1990) was banned as its plot deals with the 1980 Gwangju Uprising. However, he won critical acclaim for his second feature The Story of Two Women (1994) by winning numerous awards at the 32nd Grand Bell Awards, including Best Film, Best New Director and Best New Actress, and Best New Director at the 14th Korean Association of Film Critics Awards in 1994. He proved his box office senses with The Letter (1997) that created a wave of melodrama in the Korean movie industry. A Thai version of The Letter was made in 2004, with the same title.

Lee directed a wide spectrum of genres, from Blue (2003) that depicted a naval submarine and its submariners to a full-scale horror flick, Resurrection of the Butterfly (2007). However, his strength seems to be with melodrama that appeals to the audience's emotions.
