After he joined the “Korean Cinema” in Pusan in 1924, his film creation started in full scale. He took a part in the feature films “Life of Unyong” and “Trailblazer” in 1925 and another film “Black and White” in 1926.
In 1926, he made the feature film “Arirang” independently. In this film, he was screenwriter, producer and hero.
The film was one of the high in anti-Japanese sentiments and strong national coloring.
He also took charge of screenwriting, directing and acting in the successive creation of the feature films “Lucky Adventurer” (1926), “Field Mouse” (1926), “Goldfish” (1927), “Good-bye!” (1927), “Oknyo” (1928) and “Dumb Samryongi” (1929).
