Original Post: “The Music of Jo Hyeja” is Korea’s first cinematic adaptation of the work of famous pulp horror author H.P. Lovecraft, bringing one of his finest short stories, “The Music of Erich Zann,” to the screen.
The film stars Bunhong Lee as Miju, Yunnam Park as Jo Hyeja, and features the music of the Korean indie band Jambinai as well. The film was directed and edited by Jihyun Park (and is her debut film); it was shot by Minchul Sung, and was scripted and scored by Gord Sellar.
