Chris Marker and Coréens is an image book edited by Korean artist Rho Jaeoon based on the works by the French artist and film director Chris Marker, and works by four Korean artists who proposed their own perspective on Marker's works. They are featured in an exhibition at Atelier Hermes in Seoul from April to June 2013.

'The spring 2013 exhibition at Atelier Hermes presents a historical project by French director and photographer Chris Marker (1921-2012). Organised with Marker shortly before his death, the show features his series "Korean Women", created in 1957, together with a selection of films...Atelier Hermes curator Jee-Sook Beck invites four Korean artists to engage in an "imaginary dialogue" with Marker, the author of the film La Jetée ("The Jetty").

Hong-Goo Kang uses a 6x6 format identical to Marker’s in Korean Women. Jae Oon Rho offers a reinterpretation in video of the north Korean landscapes captured by Chris Marker. Yoon-Suk revisits Marker’s narrative work and political activism, with a film highlighting Korea’s contemporary political scene. Finally, Sejun Hwang uses traditional painting techniques to examine the Western intellectual "journey into the Orient," as represented by the figure of Chris Marker.' - from publisher's website
