Korean Literature and Film

  • 7.5 credits

The course examines how a written source can be transferred from one medium to another, into a feature film. For this purpose, representative works of Korean literature, mainly novels and short stories, are studied and their film formations.

Rather than focusing on whether the film is faithful to the literary source, the two works of art are regarded as separate entities and studied with particular emphasis on the individual media's individual storytelling techniques. During the course seminars, the different artistic approaches of the writers and directors are highlighted, interpreted and compared.
