I haven't read through the whole interview yet - but it looks interesting from the beginning:

During the 2008 San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, Ravi Chandra sat down with director Gina Kim to discuss her latest film, Never Forever.

Kim grew up in Seoul, South Korea where she majored in Studio Art, before turning to video art at CalArts. She eventually made Gina Kim’s Video Diary and then her debut feature, Invisible Light. She views film as a “democratic medium” and a way to share her ideas with a wide audience. In her new film, Sophie is the Caucasian wife of her depressed and (unbeknownst to him) infertile Korean American husband. Sophie plots to make him happy and save the marriage by becoming pregnant. To do this, she begins an affair with a Korean man. Her feelings about both men, marriage, and children evolve dramatically in this compelling feature film.
