ABOUT THE FILM
Burning is the searing examination of an alienated young man, Jongsu (Ah-in Yoo), a frustrated introvert whose already difficult life is complicated by the appearance of two people into his orbit: first, Haemi (newcomer Jong-seo Jun), a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and then, Ben (Steven Yeun, The Walking Dead, Sorry to Bother You), a wealthy and sophisticated young man she returns from a trip with. When Jongsu learns of Ben?s mysterious hobby and Haemi suddenly disappears, his confusion and obsessions begin to mount, culminating in a stunning finale. This film is South Korea?s entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards.
