Lee Ho-jae

Lee Ho-jae (born January 3, 1973) is a South Korean film director and screenwriter. Lee debuted with the crime thriller The Scam (2009). The first Korean film to ride the stock market, Lee spent two years researching and interviewing financial traders to achieve authenticity. He also found himself dabbling in the stock market during that time, and ended up losing about 94 percent of the little amount he had invested. Lee hopes movie-goers feeling the pinch of the global financial crisis will come out of the theaters feeling hopeful that everyman can come out on top.[1][2] It won Best New Director at the 46th Grand Bell Awards in 2009 and 46th Baeksang Arts Awards in 2010.[3]
