[HanCinema's Film Review] "One Step More to the Sea" 2013/11/22,
I really admire the men in "One Step More to the Sea". Granted, they're not the main characters, but there's a persistence in their actions, a genuine desire for intimacy that breaks a lot of stereotypes about ideal masculinity. They're these kind figures with a surprising sense of restraint that makes for some inviting romantic subplots absent all the discomforting baggage common in genre films about love.

Despite the dramatic differences, both films are worthy of praise and warrant examination as products of their respective eras.,...More

The day before shooting ended at 5 a.m. in the morning. The shoot continued again later on the same day at 11 a.m. During the afternoon the outdoor shoot was put to a halt due to the rain. For half the day she waited in the car for the rain to stop. Things resumed at around 9 p.m. The temperature suddenly dropped on the open set of KBS' "Cinderella's Sister" which is built next to a lake. While shooting the drama, it repeats the feeling of being on the field or on a stakeout. Seo Woo, well-known for her role in the critically acclaimed movie "Paju" which won awards and opened at several prestigious international film festivals including the Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) and at the Rotterdam Film Festival, sat down to speak with 10Asia about her current role as Hyo-seon in "Cinderella's Sister",...More
