  • [HanCinema's Film Review] Returning to the Sunny side of Love.

    2013/07/27,
    Korean films are particularly intrigued by the tragic tests time and memory can place on love. This fascination extends across genres and the results are often not the Hollywood fairy tale viewers might come to expect. We see this in recent films like "The Servant", where Choon-hyang (Korea's 'Juliet' played by Jo Yeo-jeong) suffers a devasting physical trauma that leaves her mentally and emotionally incapacitated, no longer able to remember the love and passion she once had for her forbidden lover Bang-ja (Kim Joo-hyeok).

And Kim Soo-hyeon-I just effortlessly plays the dim-witted big brother, Dong Goo, wearing in his trademark green tracksuit,...More
