Kim In Sook is renowned for her methodical directing skills that resemble a stage director. Once the artist decides on her subject, she collects related articles and bibliography, and conceives of a story. Kim then creates a set and casts her acquaintances as actors that will effectively deliver the plot.
Saturday Night is work based on a hotel in Dusseldorf, for which Kim has prepared for two years. One facade of th hotel building, where 66 rooms face, consists of many large windows; the interior of the hotel can thus be seen through the windows from the outside at night. Kim composed 66 scenarios that focus of loneliness of moderne people. The building and rooms were shot separately, and the scenes were later combined together to complete the piece.
