Jongsu, a frustrated introvert, has his life complicated by the appearance of two people: Haemi, a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and, Ben, a wealthy young man she befriends. When Jongsu learns of Ben’s mysterious hobby and Haemi disappears, his obsessions begin to mount.
An international hit for Lee Chang-dong, this sensuous and sinister story of obsessive love crackles with the flames of foreboding. Starring Steven Yeun and newcomer Yoo Ah-in, Burning twists a Haruki Murakami story into a profound examination of male violence and contemporary capitalism.
