Ki-duk Kim’s movies not only recognize the desire for rationality, but also fully affirm the value of social norms. This dilemma is inevitable in real life. This paper first analyses “social norms”, then explores the manifestation of “social norms” in Ki-duk Kim’s movies, then explores the painful presentation of “social norms” in Ki-duk Kim’s movies. Finally, it is pointed out that the protagonist's unfreedom in Ki-duk Kim’s movies is not due to the suppression of social norms, but to people's internalization of social norms. This article will help audiences better understand Ki-duk Kim’s movies and learn to interpret the “law” in movies from different perspectives. This unique creative perspective and technique provides a lot of enlightenment and new creative perspectives for the narrative content and methods of Chinese movies.
