Animated Feature Films of the 1960s-1970s
The special exhibition this summer features five animated films to bring back childhood memories, including A STORY OF HONG GIL-DONG (Shin Dong-hun, 1967), which showed the potentials of Korean animated films through its explosive popularity and its spin-off HOPI AND CHADOL BAWI (Shin Dong-hun, 1967), as well as GOLDEN IRON MAN (Park Yeong-il, 1968), the first SF animation and cinemascope animated film, ROBOT TAEKWON V (Kim Chung-gi, 1976) that revitalized the sluggish animated film industry, and KONGJUI & PATCHUI (Gang Tae-ung, 1978) with its outstanding stop animation techniques.

Films
  • 01. A Story of Hong Gil-dong ( Hong Gil-dongjeon ) Shin Dong-hun, 1967
    The series cartoon by Shin Dong-wu, “Punguna Hong Gil-dong”(published in Children’s Chosun Ilbo Newspaper) was remade into an animated film by the author’s older brother Shin Dong-hun. The film opened simultaneously in Segi Theater, Myeongbo Theater, as well as other theaters in Busan and Gwangju in January 1967, and attracted 120,000 moviegoers within six days of opening. It is the work that marked the beginning of the Korean feature-length animation. NEW
  • 02. Hopi and Chadol Bawi ( Hopiwa Chadolbawi ) Shin Dong-hun, 1967
    This film is a spin-off of A STORY OF HONG GIL-DONG, with the Hopi and Chadol Bawi, supporting characters in the film, as the main characters. This work employs the norms of “wandering sword fighter” storyline to add to the entertainment value. NEW
     
  • 03. Golden Iron Man ( Hwanggeum Cheol-in ) Park Yeong-il, 1968
    This film is an animated version of a cartoon series published in Children’s Hankuk Ilbo Newspaper, and is meaningful because it is the first Korean SF animation and cinemascope animation. This work unfurls a fantastic narrative created from the imagination, picking the stars from the night sky and crossing the galaxy filled with the stars. NEW
  • 04. Robot Taekwon V Kim Chung-gi, 2004
    This immensely popular work attracted 130,000 viewers in Seoul, revitalizing the sluggish feature-length animated film industry in the 1970s. The film had great effects in the industry, giving birth to a children’s movie and children’s TV series, as well as an original soundtrack record. Seven sequels of this film were produced later. This version was restored digitally in 2007. NEW
  • 05. Kongjwi and Patjwi Gang Tae-ung, 1978
    This is another stop animation film by Gang Tae-ung, who directed the first Korean stop animation film HEUNGBU AND NOLBU. In a time when SF animation, typified by ROBOT TAEKWON V, was all the rage, Gang released a stop animation film based on a traditional fairy tale. Compared to HEUNGBU AND NOLBU, KONGJUI & PATCHUI shows more naturally flowing movements of the characters. The story in the later part of the film was written differently from the original fairy tale, borrowing motifs from another fairy tale, JANGHWA AND HONGNYEON. NEW
