Revenge Week Begins!

Welcome to Revenge Week on Modern Korean Cinema! We are very excited to be featuring lots of new and exciting content from MKC team members and many new contributors throughout the next seven days as we seek to explore the bountiful theme of revenge in Korean cinema.

This page will serve as homebase for all the accumulated content that goes up during the week so please bookmark or check back to keep up with all the great stuff coming up over the next few days.

Of course the discussion will not just be limited to the pages of MKC as we will be very active across social media so please join us for some very lively chat on facebook and twitter. For the latter make sure to use the special #RevengeWeek hashtag to keep up with the discussion. We'll be asking questions, seeking opinions and perhaps getting into a few heated arguments!

We've already got a good number of people involved but I think there are more of you out there! Still plenty of time and please don't be shy. Many a fascinating piece of writing has never seen the light of day because its potential author didn't feel they had anything worthwhile to share. That is almost always wrong so please consider taking part. Pick up that pen or dust off that keyboard and surprise yourself.

Most of all, this should be a lot of fun. So please enjoy Revenge Week!
