After playing a string of serious and introverted characters in recent dramas such as "Fashion King" (SBS) and "When A Man's in Love" (MBC), actress Sin Se-kyeong is taking on a bolder role in "Tazza: The High Rollers 2", which will hit local theaters tomorrow.

Lee's "Pirates" still rule the roost while "The Admiral" spies 17M…

The last few weeks have seen Korea's box office figures soar thanks to two seafaring delights: Kim Han-min's epic "Admiral" and Lee Seok-hoon's "Pirates".
