You and Me
This propaganda film on the ‘Korea and Japan One’ policy and enlistment from the Japanese colonial era was produced with support from the military. Currently, only about one-fifth of the film is available, and some scenes include musical content. Although not originally planned as a musical film, the lead actor Kim Young-gil was an opera singer known as Enrico Caruso of Asia. Singer Kim Jung-Ku and actress/singer Xiang Lan Li can be seen in the boat scene set in Geum River. (LEE Junhee)
