ABSTRACT

This paper is to restore Kang Hong sik’s unknown true life that is because he was going to North Korea. And this paper is to search traces of Joseon film under Japanese imperialism in the first North Korea art film <My Home Village>(1949) directed by Kang Hong sik. We only know about Kang Hong sik that he was an actor at Japan, and he came back to Joseon working as an actor and a singer. This paper confirms Kang Hong sik’s career at Japan through check of various information. I concentrated the inheritance of Joseon film under Japanese imperialism such as traces of Joseon film under Japanese imperialism in the <My Home Village> directed by Kang Hong sik and Kang Hong sik’s directing features came from his experience. When he directed <My Home Village>, he focused on homogenized realistic acting. There are traces of Joseon film under Japanese imperialism such as exposed film set and folk song insert in film. We can also find out the traces in Kang Hong sik’s film. Until now film studies revolve around the influence of the Soviet Union on earlier North Korea film. But through these discoveries I could ascertain the formation of North Korea film is combination of influence of the Soviet Union and Joseon film heritage under Japanese imperialism. These facts can help to understand North Korea film which is difficult to study because of limited research material and ideological problem.
