  • Daniel Henney returns as hot spy

    2013/08/30, Source,
    Seol Kyeong-gu, left, and Daniel Henney play dueling agents in the comedy "The Spy". Daniel Henney is back, much to the delight of his Korean fans - a group that includes not only cinemagoers, but also his co-stars. When asked about her favorite scene in the movie, actress Ra Mi-ran was quick to answer: "His wet and bloody torso". She was referring to a scene where Henney's character, the charismatic spy Ryan, is tortured in a warehouse. But the comment sums up the premise of "The Spy" nicely: a Henney fest. A pretty face can only take you so far, though. Fortunately, "The Spy" also has plenty of humor,...More

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Peppermint Candy"

    Yong-Ho (played by Seol Kyeong-gu) is severely depressed. But he has no perception that he is depressed, nor does he seem to have any real idea as to the cause. It's not necessarily a matter of his being a bad person- though Yong-Ho is very much a loathsome human being. After awhile, the realization that he's about to make another decision just inspires a great deal of dread. Most of the other characters he meets would have been better off just giving up on him quickly. The ones who stick around just have more emotional pain as a reward,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The King of XXX-Kissing": Brown-nosed, but not Beaten.

    Film: "The King of XXX-Kissing" (아부의 왕) Director: Jeong Seung-koo Stars: Song Sae-byeok, Seong Dong-il, Lee Byeong-joon & Ko Chang-seok Review Score: 3 / 5 Despite his past experience on films such as Lee Chang-dong's "Secret Sunshine" and the 2006 action film noir "A Dirty Carnival", Jeong Seung-koo has chosen to make his own entry into directing with the satirical comedy "The King of XXX-Kissing". Fans of Korean cinema will be familiar with Jeong's mocking encomium and witty humour as he critiques and exaggerates Korea's socio-political bureaucracy. Jeong promised that it would not be 'empty laughs' as audiences will surely recognise the pressure and frustration of challenging that misty glass ceiling that continues to loom over many of Korea's young minds,...More
