[HanCinema's Film Review] "18 - Eighteen Noir" 2014/07/30,
Dong-do (played by Lee Jae-eung) loves movies, neglecting his studies just so he can watch more, giving his mom the excuse of how movies are themselves studying, since they help him learn about the real world. Yeah, that's probably the first clue that Dong-do really doesn't have the most discerning sense of judgment, so of course he jumps at the chance to make friends with some teens who are exactly the kind of cool types the movies tend to glamorize. The consequences are...well, actually not that extreme in the immediate sense,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "The President's Barber" 2013/11/01,
South Korea has an ambivalent relationship with former president Park Chung-Hee (here played by Jo Yeong-jin).

[ChanMi's movie news] "Take Off" will it succeed? 2009/07/07, Source, "Take Off" is definitely a sports film that has cost the most to produce and its coming this summer! This film will definitely cool you hot summer days with ski jumps off the snowy mountains.
This movie has already been Choonmooro's hot film because it is directed by Kim Yong-hwa who also directed "200 Pounds Beauty" and the hot actor Ha Jung-woo is the main character!
It has cost 11,000,000,000 Won (~$US 10 millions) to produce this movie!
However, this film has a very new story different from other sports films. We can see how the national atheletes have worked so hard with their jumpsuits for ski jumps with all the equipment used for this sport. The motive is to show how these atheletes work hard.
Many film producers try hard to use less money however, this film has taken a bold step in using all that money fiming for 2 years and 7 months! The film has filmed 101 different times with 200 staffs!,...More

The Chusok holidays are when family-oriented films tend to dominate local theaters, and this year looks to be no different. Putting in its bid for the Chusok crown is "Kkotpinun Pomi Omyon (Springtime)", a se,...More
From remembering gruesome serial murder cases and Cold-War suicide commandoes, based-on-a-true-story films have become quite the flavor in the past year and, given this year's lineup, will probably remain so for a while. So it is a little surprising that the new film,...More
