Paparazzi in Venice, 2002
|Lee Chang-dong's Oasis was shown in the Venice Film Festival in 2002, and the paparazzi was there to take the exclusive pictures. On the right director Lee Chang-dong (이창동), the current minister of culture rumored to be replaced soon; next to her Mun So-ri (문소리), the starring actress. The guy on the left in shades is Myeong Gye-Nam (명계남), a long-time movie industry figure, who is nowadays perhaps best known as a relentless supporter of Roh Moo-hyun and opposer of Chosun Ilbo.|

Our entourage was thinking of gatecrashing the after-party of the Oasis showing, but too bad we weren't successful in getting to rub shoulders with the future minister.
