> As Chung and Diffrient point out, many Korean film scholars have

> “resentment” and “lamentation” to “unfulfilled desire” and
> “resignation.” (C/D, P. 22)Both /Epitaph /and /The Stray Bullet/
> mobilize this Korean /han /arguably to express not melodrama, but
> respectively horror and realism.Does this mean that /han /becomes a
> less significant concept when it is exploited as a sensibility to
> express non-melodramatic emotion such as shock in horror films or
> social anger in realist films?Do you agree with this general
> assessment that /han /is less relevant in these two films because it
> is an anachronistic and nationalist feeling or do you feel that it is
> just as relevant in these two films?Use AT LEAST two specific
> references from these two films studied so far in the course to build
> your case.
