Kim Jong-hak was a South Korean television director and producer, best known for the seminal and highly rated Korean dramas Eyes of Dawn (1991) and Sandglass (1995). After financial losses incurred by the big-budget fantasy series The Legend (2007) and Faith (2012), Kim was under investigation when he committed suicide in 2013.


Despite his legal troubles late in life, Kim's legacy remains his work. Kim Seung-soo at the Seoul Institute of the Arts praised his eye for detail, saying, "He was a true master of his craft who insisted on perfection, and this passion had run into a brick wall."

Kim revolutionized Korean dramas and changed the visual paradigm of the industry, which heralded a Golden Age that would last nearly a decade. Both critically acclaimed and massively popular, Eyes of Dawn and Sandglass are currently considered iconic masterpieces of Korean television.
