Words cannot even begin to describe how beautiful this piece of art is! I chose this movie for a comparative literature project (with Homer's The Odyssey), and quickly fell in love with this cinematic version of the famous Korean tale of Chunhyang. A classic that I had heard and read about in children's format, now elegantly produced and complemented by the original, masterfully performed pansori.

The traditional art of pansori may put off some at first, but it is a medium of raw emotion. Playful at times, unimaginably heartbreaking at times, but always the main focus of this film. The actors played their role fine, and Chunhyang was beautiful in her scenes of persistance, but the scenes which were accompanied by pansori were the greatest.

Never has a song in a movie brought me to tears, and I cried along with the film's audience. You not only understand the words, but you feel the intended emotions, raw desire or steadfastness even near death.

I recommend this movie for anyone interested in Korean culture, art, or music, or for anyone looking for a classic tale of love and the steadfastness of the woman.

This classic Korean tale is a beautiful epic! Hearing the pansori along with the movie was very moving
especially when chunhyang is being beaten for the first time, her lament for each strike is heartbreaking
