[HanCinema's Film Review] "Born To Kill" 2015/02/28,
Kil (played by Jeong Woo-seong) is an assassin. Why, I suppose you could even say he was..."Born To Kill". Yes, that is an obviously corny and dumb joke. Well, get used to it. In short order we watch Kil carry out multiple murders. Very stabby murders, where Kil comes off less like a person and more like some sort of hybrid land-shark who's drawn to blood, water, and people who insist on horsing around in spite of the obvious rules against such rude behavior. Also he has a pet monkey,...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Three Charmed Lives" 2014/08/02,
The first segment, directed by Francis Ng, depicts a man who's been degraded into homelessness and street begging from a presumably impressive past life which is not spelled out clearly until some time in. The lesson learned- being poor and homless really sucks, and there isn't really a whole lot even an individualist success story can do to crawl out when absolutely everything is taken out from under him. It would be cliched if not for the depressing fact that all too many people genuinely believe that poverty is just something that happens to lazy people,...More

[HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "The Good, the Bad, the Weird": Haw Yee for Kimchi Cowboys! 2013/12/28,
The lesser-spotted 'kimchi cowboy' is a serious cinematic oddity, an unusual anatopism that causes one's head to cock uncontrollably and the eyes to somehow sharpened in disbelief. Kim Ji-woon, to his credit, is a genre gypsy, a marauding mixologist who, in "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", blends and bends the spaghetti western into a fermenting pastiche of a picture. The film's bold fusion of Wild West tropes and K-comedy antics made it a local favourite (6.8 million admissions-second that year only to Kang Hyeong-cheol's "Speedy Scandal"), and once it made the festival rounds its cult status was safely secured. The film itself is narratively numbing, frustratingly fused, and a prude with its post-climax cuddling, a real scratchy quilt of a film. But when we reach for skies and surrender to the chaos of it all, life under the Manchurian sun is actually blisteringly brilliant,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Sad Movie" 2013/12/21,
Foreboding title notwithstanding, the first thing that really stands out about "Sad Movie" are the comedic elements. Between the four vaguely related love-centered plotlines, there's this strong undertone of dark humor. There's a somewhat hostile relationship between mother and son, a threatened break-up over unchanging circumstances, a threatened marriage over unchanging circumstances, and a romance where one of the participants is neither seen or heard. It's all as bizarre as it sounds, yet to anyone who's been in these kinds of situations the emotions ring quite true.
What unites all these disparate stories is the overhanging dread of inevitability,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Daisy" 2013/12/20,
Every single character in this movie is a naive idiot who is incapable of learning from past experiences. As "Daisy" opens there's some hope that maybe this is actually the point. Portrait artist Hye-Young (played by Jeon Ji-hyeon) openly notes her lack of romantic experience in the initial voiceover. Romance in the mind of hitman Park-Yi (played by Jeong Woo-seong) is kind of sweet and yet, well, also kind of incredibly creepy. It's hard to imagine these two having any kind of future when their initial expectations start out this bizarre.
Then we meet Interpol agent Jeong-Woo (played by Lee Seong-jae) and he has the same ridiculous ideas, even though this older presumably more normal man should have grown up out of this nonsense a long time ago,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Phantom the Submarine" 2013/12/20,
Well this certainly is a Korean movie about a submarine. I don't mean to sound flippant here but that's really all that can be meaningfully written about "Phantom the Submarine". If you've ever seen any movie about a submarine, "Phantom the Submarine" is that same movie. You've got a large cast of characters stuck in horribly cramped quarters, an unsettling mystery about what the submarine's actual mission is, and a mutiny.
Is that a spoiler? It takes some time for the mutiny to actually happen, and come to think of it I'm still not totally sure who was supposed to be mutinying against who there, since it's never totally clear what the original mission even was or whether even the characters themselves have any real idea what's going on,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Season of Good Rain" 2013/12/13,
Often while watching this movie, I was puzzled as to why it was so long. The film's aesthetic and narrative bears much similarity to a short film. Dong-Ha (played by Jeong Woo-seong) meets his old acquaintance Mei (played by Gao Yuanyuan) while on a business trip to Chengdu in China. There's plenty of reminiscing about old times, drumming up of nostalgia and old emotions. And it would seem like that's all there is to it. Or is it?
All of the conversations between Dong-Ha and Mei are in English, as this is the only language they have in common, even though Dong-Ha is Korean and Mei is Chinese,...More
Korean Film No Longer Wedded to Romance 2013/08/03, Source,
Romance has apparently all-but disappeared from Korean films these days. It is something of a time-honored rule of thumb to include some love interest among the main characters of a Korean movie, regardless of genre. As recently as last year, box-office hits such as "The Thieves" and "Masquerade" all featured romantic tugs-of-war, or characters with a burning passion for someone. Even if the romance was not at the heart of the movie, it was always there to add spice to the plot,...More

Given how painstakingly detailed the plan seems to be, and what happens to the one criminal foolish enough to deviate from it by even a second, there was one thing I couldn't get. If the whole point of phase one was to trick people into thinking the bank robbers were actually government employees, why did the police arrive on the scene barely a minute after the crime was finished?

The little prince has disappeared and an excellent rookie actor has appeared. Kim Beom (23) abandoned his previous image of a handsome and bright man and he came back as a mature man with his brand new appearance in the JBC drama "Padam Padam... The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats", which finished airing on February 7. He played an angel in the drama, but the angel had a tough life. He was released from prison, and he even felt a strong impulsion to kill somebody even though he was an angel.

Efficient change of shape and the structure in order to adapt to the environment is called evolution. That is why new SBS action series "ATHENA", the spin-off to KBS series "IRIS", has evolved somewhat from its predecessor.

The drama is a spin-off of the original "IRIS" drama and it is based on the original story of the KBS drama "IRIS", which had aired last year on KBS. "ATHENA" is very similar to the original "IRIS" as the production company Taewon Entertainment, which had produced "IRIS", will also produce this drama, and it has been equipped with an all-star cast and large-scale action and melodramatic storyline. But the backdrop of the drama has been expanded from the Korean peninsula and Asian countries into the whole world, and the relationships among cast members have become more complicated,...More

After fearlessly stepping into Jeongmuro [where the history of Korean film started] in his early twenties as a film importer, he later placed his name on the power list of commercial film producers.

It may seem foolish to identify an actor as a role he played but Kim Nam-gil is similar in many ways to the character Bidam he played in MBC TV series "Queen Seon-deok" this year. His ability to throw in jokes in between the dialogue on every occasion he gets while also being able to go back straight to being serious and genuine to give heartfelt and mature responses for the actual interview, proved Kim is great at handling various situations. "I had once talked about this with actor Jung Jae-young -- people who grew up wealthy can understand those who grew up hungry but not sympathize with them. And vice versa, those who haven't been wealthy before cannot be aware of or know the difficulties wealthy people face despite seemingly living in abundance. Even I myself think "If I only had money. You can do everything in Korea if you have money. What could be so tough about it?" But my parents let me experience a lot of things such as part-time jobs so bit by bit, I think I've received a lot of help getting where I am in terms of my acting",...More
