    2014/04/13, Source,
    The film "Snowpiercer" (2013) was recently highlighted by a German daily, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, which described the movie as, "a work that was excellent in mixing Western and East Asian cinematic traditions". The article, published on April 2 under the headline, "Im ewigen Eis", or, "Eternally in Ice", praised the film, saying that it is very "international" and that it broke away from the Hollywood style. In particular, the cast was from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, including Korea, the U.S. and the Czech Republic.

    2014/04/05,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer"... 2013 was a frantic and fascinating year for Korean cinema. In addition to the recording-breaking figures the domestic box office reported, it was a year that saw three of Korea's top directing talents venture into English-language films.
