생일 축하합니다 (saeng-il chukha-hamnida), Park Chan-wook.

Not many know of you over here, but in Asia and Europe, you are a commercially successful and critically well-respected filmmaker.

I have been looking up to you as a filmmaker since the day I started filmmaking. You,  Joon-ho Bong and Kim Ji-woon. That was 10 years ago. Geez, how time flies.

Some have called me shallow, and many have called me weird for adoring your films. Oh well, cup of coffee in the big time.

Your films have always been THE FILMS I go back to from time and time. And when I do, I always learned something new.

I really can’t wait to see your new film, The Handmaiden. This time, you’re adapting it from a novel called Fingersmith.

I wonder if it’s going to its own direction, just like what you did with Oldboy. Please don’t stop making films even the screen quota issues you’ve been dealing with recently.

Just as I was giving up on everything else in the world, your films have forged a crazy, adventurous pathway for me. I hope to see you in the future and just shake your hands and say,

“Thank you, for pulling me into your worlds”.
