  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Watchtower"

    Long ago, during the Japanese Occupation, a watchtower was erected in Chuncheon for the sake of watching over things. In the present day, South Korea's usual modernization regiment is working to tear down the tower and build something more useful in its place- even if modern Chuncheon needed a watchtower, this one is hopelessly out of date. In the future, time travelers look upon these proceedings with bemused approval. Such is the true path to enlightenment, they think- the effacing of all minor blemishes from the past not meant to be,...More

  • Kang Hye-jeong's Movie Picks

    2010/02/18, Source,
    Korean actress Kang Hye-jeong [photographed by Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] Kang Hye-jeong has experienced quite a curve during her career as a movie star. The unpredictability in her career shows how eventful the journey was from her starting point leading up to the present. Watching her play the role of Yuki in her debut film "The Butterfly" -- it was directed by Moon Seung-wook and showed Kang's potential as an actor -- makes it hard to think of anyone better for the part. The film "Old Boy", which implanted her name in peoples' minds, also falls into the masterpiece category. Her character Mido in "Old Boy" proclaimed that Kang cannot be fit into a stereotype that had been established by previous Korean actresses and Kang earned a name value of her own. She continuously used that value in her consequent movie roles -- as the beautiful wife of a kind-hearted filmmaker in "Three, Monster" and portraying the character Hong in the impossible-to-describe film "Rules of Dating". Kang Hye-jeong was an intense actor and her movies were like powerful punches on the hearts of moviegoers. After the film "Welcome to Dongmakgol", however, Kang little by little started going off the predictable path that public expected her to take. She played the adorable and cute girl parts in "Love Phobia", "Herb" and "Kill Me" -- also something the public did not expect to see from her. And in the film "Girlfriends", she played the ordinary twenty-something woman who goes through growing pains at the age of twenty-nine. "I actually went through some things that other people have not experienced or need not experience pretty early in my life. And I was able to create an aggressive and independent character in my early twenties based on such experiences. I was a kid who either ignored pain or let it burst, like my characters in "Old Boy" and "Rules of Dating". But after a while, the ups and downs in my life started getting less frequent and less noisy".,...More
