Sangwoo Lee's films are challenging, innovative works that raise pertinent questions about the role of family relations in Korean society. When asked why his work is so controversial, Lee responded that, given the small budgets with which he works, controversy is his only hope for reaching a wide audience. "The Busan International Film catalog called me 'Korea's most perverted director," he said, adding, "I took that as a compliment."
