Oh Ji Ho - Two From La Belle

In the following photographs you will see an interesting technique used by the director, Yeo Kyun Dong, when showing flash-back memories of the writer versus real-time events.

The first photograph is shown in drab dark colors. It is jarring to look at. All the warmth of the general tone of the film is absent.

Here we see a completely different type of moment. Although the woman has just climbed into bed with the reluctant writer, who had tried to avoid embracing her since she had just returned drunk after being out all night. Regardless of his feelings of the moment, he is about to embrace her. The warmth of the image is powerfully juxtaposed to the cold gloom of the other.
