Beongeoli Sam-ryong (Deaf Sam-ryong) is a 1929 Korean film written, directed, produced by and starring Na Woon-gyu (1902-1937). It premiered at the Choseon Theater in January 1929. It was the fifth film produced by Na Woon-gyu Productions, and its failure with the public was blamed for the bankruptcy of that company.

Plot summary[edit]

The plot concerns Sam-ryong, a deaf servant who is in love with his landlord's daughter-in-law. Critics praised the final scene of the film, in which the house burns, as a work of pioneering and experimental film making.

1964 remake[edit]

In 1964 Shin Sang-ok directed Deaf Sam-yong, a remake of Beongeoli Sam-ryong which won the Grand Bell (Daejong) Award in 1965 for Best Picture.[1]
