The Cinematographer Chung Chung-hoon
Antarctic Journal is quite different than the rest of the South Korean films of Horror Genre, becomes it includes thriller as well as mystery in it. An expedition of six men goes out towards Antarctica and while trekking through the icy and snowy landscape, come upon an eighty years old diary. The diary is left behind by a British team which has not a word written in it, but instead, is filled with pictures. What follows are strange occurrences among the team members.
kang-ho song and Ji-tae Yu
Outstanding performances by Kang-ho Song, Ji-tae Yu, Hee-soon Park, Je Mun Yun and Duek-mun Choi brings the film into life. Quite well Directed by Pil-Sung Yim and an amazing Cinematography by Chung Chung-hoon at times makes you feel that you yourself are in the Antarctic. I will be very honest with you, while watching the film, I literally started feeling cold, because the men in the film were constantly walking in the snow. I could see a few people put on their scarves around their necks.
Antarctic Journal was shot very brilliantly in Korea and NewZealand. It also won the Best Director Award in the Catalonian International Film Festival in 2005.
