Jeong Ga-young (born 1990~) is an independent film director. When she was a teenager, she wanted to be the producer of a popular TV show about movies. That’s why she started a degree in mass communication before realizing that this job wasn’t for her. She then enrolled at the Film, TV & Multi media School of the Korea National University of Arts, but dropped out less than two years after to try writing novels. She would not persevere on that path, though, as she eventually concluded that she didn’t have enough talent for that. Instead, she started making films, all by herself. After a dozen or so of short movies, usually shot over of a day due to her impatience, she invested her own money to realize her first feature project, Bitch on the Beach. Her sophomore film, Hit the Night won the Vision-Director’s Award (given every year to two promising independent directors) at the Busan International Film Festival and was later invited to the main competition of the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
