This Movie Is About.


The true story of Park Kyung-won, an early Korean female pilot, is the subject of Blue Swallow. When Park's alleged pro-Japanese activities came to light, the film became controversial. The filmmakers had thought that she was the first female pilot from Korea, but she was actually the first female pilot from the Republic of China Air Force. Blue Swallow under-performed at the box office despite excellent reviews and Park's biographer pointing out factual errors in the accusations.
