  • Famous film, made by you

    2013/08/22, Source,
    Brothers Park Chan-wook and Park Chan-kyong, want to use your footage to make "Seoul, Our Movie". As the glow of "Gangnam Style" fades, the Seoul Metropolitan Government is hoping to borrow the luster of another famous Korean to keep the capital in the global spotlight. Internationally acclaimed director Park Chan-wook - best known for controversial and violent films like "Old Boy" and, more recently, the Hollywood film "Stoker" - is teaming up with his younger brother, director and media artist Park Chan-kyong, to make a film about Seoul,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Stoker" and the Bloodline Boiling Point

    2013/08/17,
    In the Spotlight this Week: "Stoker" (2013) by Park Chan-wook... Earlier this year we saw Kim Jee-woon shoot Arnold in the desert in "The Last Stand", an outsourced mercy killing that was so self-reflexive it was virtually suicide. Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" has only been out in Korea for a couple weeks now, but already it is in the black and has the international community drooling in anticipation.

    2013/08/16, Source,
    (from right) Director Bong Joon-ho, Jean Marc Rochette, and Benjamin Legrend have a roundtable talk at the Korea Manhwa Contents Agency (KOMACON). The film Snowpiercer has attracted more than 7 million viewers in only 15 days since its opening. Benjamin Legrend (63) and Jean Marc Rochette (57), the writer and artist of the French comic Le Transperceneige on which the movie is based, visited the 16th Bucheon International Comics Festival (BICOF) on August 15 and had a roundtable talk with the film's director Bong Joon-ho. "The film was very much like magic", said Rochette after watching the film at the Korea Manhwa Contents Agency in Bucheon, Gyeonggi-do (Gyeonggi Province) for the first time. "I read the scenario but from the beginning of the movie, I was so moved that I felt a lump in my throat and was overwhelmed by all kinds of emotions",...More
