[Korea.net News, Culture / Events, May 27 2007] Film adaptation of French comic to go global: Bong

Even with only three feature films to his name, Bong Joon-ho has become one of the few Korean directors who have been able to "catch both hares" -- commercial success and critical acclaim.

After directing short films, he made his feature film debut in 2000 with "Barking Dogs Never Bite." The story of a college instructor trying to kill his neighbors' dogs won critical recognition, but was not well-received by audiences.
