I am a Politics student writing my Masters on North Korea and fear in
Japan. As a means of tapping popular sentiment, I was hoping to examine
some movies that depict North Korea or North Koreans (or hot topics,
such as fushinsen or the abduction issue) from the Japanese perspective.
I hope I can pick the brains of some of the forum members on this issue.
If anyone can think of any films between 1990 and today that fit the
bill, I would be very glad to hear about them.
I can only think of Nihon igai zenbu chinbotsu off hand. Perhaps
Umizaru, although I am not sure if the film is as relevant as I hear the
drama might be. Apart from those, does anyone know how popular Shiri
(Swiri, 1999 - South Korean movie by Kang Je-gyu) in Japan?
Any help would be appreciated,
With kind regards,
