Original soundtrack to the 2016 South Korean psychological thriller The Handmaiden directed by Park Chan-wook. The film took its inspiration from the novel Fingersmith by the Welsh author Sarah Waters, with the setting changed from Victorian era Britain to 1930s Korea under Japanese colonial rule. There are 38 songs that were used in the shining moments of the characters in the movie, including "Imi Oneun Sori (The Footsteps of My Dear Love)" which was introduced at the 69th Cannes Film Festival, and the title song "The Tree From Mount Fuji". The soundtrack also includes the film's most famous dialogue such as "My saviour who ruined my life" and "The doll of a maid." Cho Young-wook (Music Director of The Handmaiden) explains, "Keeping the suspense formed in the collision of four people, but focusing on balancing the two big flows so that the lady and maid's melody do not fade."
