Behind the Unlimited Revenge: A Review on the Narrative Style of Park Chan-wook - Focusing on the “revenge trilogy”
Department of arts, Wuhan University, Wuhan, 430072, China
The development of Korean films is tortuous, and a number of outstanding films have emerged in the 21st century. Among them, the “revenge trilogy” are famous, while they also made the director Park Chan-wook become world-renowned. His films break through the restriction of film genre and set up the complicated revenge structure, the carefully constructed space-time setting and the role-building of morally ambiguous characters. The elements of blood, violence, and eroticism are all direct in his films, but beneath these dark elements, there are reflections and discussions on human nature, destiny, and the rules of society. Ultimately, this paper will take the films of the “revenge trilogy” as the main cases and analyze the narrative style from three aspects: narrative structure, narrative space and characterization, and trace how these elements worked in Park Chan-wook’s films.
