Monthly Screening Series

an age when women were treated as if they were invisible, Hwang Jin Yi, the
celebrated Korean courtesan-singer-poet of the 16th century, was larger than
life. Her beauty, wit and intellect propelled her from obscurity into the
company of Korea’s
most powerful aristocrats. The defining romance of her life broke across Korea’s rigid
class lines and was in turn shattered by tragedy. A symbol of art and
individuality, the subject of countless novels, movies and operas, Hwang Jin
Yi remains a powerful feminist figure in Korea to this day.
