Burning (hangeul : 버닝 ; RR : beo-ning, littéralement « Brûlant ») est un thriller dramatique sud-coréen coécrit et réalisé par Lee Chang-dong, sorti en 2018. Il s'agit de l'adaptation de la nouvelle Les Granges brûlées (納屋を焼) de Haruki Murakami (1983), lointainement inspirée de L'Incendiaire (Barn Burning) de William Faulkner (1939).


Jongsu, un jeune homme emprunté et plutôt introverti, travaille à Séoul comme livreur à mi-temps. Au cours d'une livraison, il croise sans la reconnaître Haemi, une ancienne voisine et camarade de classe, devenue animatrice d'événements commerciaux à Séoul. Elle l'identifie (ils sont originaires du même patelin : Paju, non loin de Séoul) et à son initiative, ils refont rapidement connaissance. Il a fini ses études, fait son service militaire et veut devenir écrivain ; elle apprend la pantomime et veut devenir actrice. Ils se revoient et bientôt couchent ensemble dans le petit studio où elle vit avec son chat. Presque immédiatement après, elle informe Jongsu qu'elle s'apprête à partir en voyage en Afrique noire et lui demande de bien vouloir nourrir son chat en son absence.
