Editor: Yang Zixin

Born on August 8, 1963 in South Korea, Hur Jin-ho graduated from Yonsei University with a degree in philosophy and went on to study filmmaking at the Korean Academy of Film Arts.

His first steps as a film director did not go unnoticed as his first short, For Go-chul, was selected for the Vancouver International Film Festival.

Many of his feature films, Christmas in August (shown at the Critics' Week in Cannes in 1998), April Snow (2005) and Happiness (2007) are variations on Hur's favorite theme: love.
