A graduate of Sungkyunkwan University, Jang's first directing job was on the 1994 short film 2001 Imagine. His feature-length debut was the critically acclaimed cult science fiction film Save the Green Planet! (2003), considered one of the most unique and original films in the history of Korean cinema. Jang won Best Director at the 4th Busan Film Critics Awards, and the Special Silver St. George for Best Director at the 25th Moscow International Film Festival.
He directed two more short films Hair (2004), and Love for Sale (2010, as part of the omnibus Camellia, about the past, present and future of the city Busan). Then in 2013, Jang's long-awaited second feature film was released, a revenge thriller titled Hwayi: A Monster Boy.
