While at the Cannes Film Festival last month I got the chance to sit down on the beach and talk with the multi-talented Lee Jung-jae, the SAG Award-winning and heavily Emmy-buzzed star of Netflix’s international phenomenon Squid Game. He was at the world’s most famous film festival though to world premiere his first directorial effort for a feature film, Hunt. It debuted in the Midnight section and got good notices both for his starring turn, but also his skill behind the lens as writer and director.
He joins me on this special edition of Behind The Lens from Cannes where we talk about the challenges of taking on multiple roles in the making of the film which also boasts plenty of action, as well as all the new opportunities the success of Squid Game has opened up for him on a global basis, even for a man who is a superstar in South Korea and a 30 year veteran of the business.

Join me every Monday and Friday during Emmy season for a new episode of Behind The Lens.
