In 1972, a lush pop ballad called "The Mist" swirled out of radios all over South Korea. Fifty years later, master auteur Park Chan-wook has taken it as the main inspiration for his celebrated new thriller-romance DECISION TO LEAVE.
In this special episode of the award-winning MUBI Podcast, Park tells host Rico Gagliano about the song's influence on the film, unveils the musical inspiration for a possible future project...and explains why his action sequences always seem to leave his characters breathless.
DECISION TO LEAVE is showing in select US and UK cinemas, and will stream exclusively on MUBI starting December 9th in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, India and Turkey.
