Memories of Murder (2003) is based on what director Bong Joon Ho has described as “the first real case of serial murder in Korea”: between 1986 and 1991, the rural area of Hwaseong was terrorized by the killings of ten women. As he explained to critic Tony Rayns in 2004, Bong wanted his second feature film to be a crime picture because “there’s an old tradition of crime movies in Korean cinema which are rather different from plot-oriented Hollywood thrillers, and I wanted to make something of that sort. The old-style Korean movies are essentially humane and emotional—that’s what I like about them . . . I like seeing how people behave when they’re caught up in crime.”
