Jeongeun Choi


Jeongeun Choi was born in 1983 in South Korea. In 2002 she began studying filmmaking at Sejong University in Korea, where she wrote and directed 7 short films. After graduating, she joined the crew on Won Shin-yeon's feature Seven Days as script supervisor, followed immediately by Park Chan-wook's Thirst, in the same role. After Thirst, she decided to come to London to seek further creative stimulation and challenges. Whilst at the London Film School, she received the Independent Short Film Funding grant from the Korean Film Council and The Jeju Film Commission, allowing her to create her short film, Rise Above. The film was shown at Short Film Corner at Festival de Cannes in 2012, and the Kustendorf International Film and Music Festival and Riga International Short Film Festival, both in 2013. She is currently preparing her first feature film, Method of Cure, which explores the difficult subject of euthanasia.
