[HanCinema's Hall of Fame] "My Wife is a Gangster": Through Sickness and Health 2014/03/08, In the Spotlight this Week: Jo Jin-kyoo's "My Wife Is a Gangster"...
Of all the genres Korea cycles through the gangster flick is arguably one of the oddest. Romantic comedies, melodramas, revenge thrillers, and disaster films I understand (at least from a socio-historical standpoint), but gangsters? There are no iconic tommy guns, dastardly drive-byes, decaying dead horses, or even much history behind its inclusion as far as I am aware. When I think of gangsters my mind manifests either impeccably dressed Italians hanging out in the back of family-owned pizzeria, or the faceless masses of a Yakuza-style entourage, their bodies riddled with tattoos and scars. Korea gangsters, however, seem to lean more towards the Japanese stereotype as swarms of suits, skin art, and blades seem to be the preferred tools of the trade. But what almost all gangster films have in common is this unwavering subscription to inter-gang authority, a strict hierarchy that holds one man above all others, a phallocentric pyramid that one has to mount in order to become more than a mere errand boy with a bad attitude. Strange then, if not surprisingly refreshing, that in "My Wife Is a Gangster" the most feared, respected, and obeyed figured is woman,...More

[2010 10Asia's Awards] Writer & Actor of the Year 2010/12/31, Source, ────── Writer of the Year: Kim Su-hyun ──────
Writer Kim Su-hyun [10Asia]
It is still Kim Su-hyun. Her SBS TV series "Life is Beautiful" may have seen slightly lower ratings than her previous works and the various controversies surrounding the show for the fact that it dealt with homosexuality, one of the hottest issues of debate in Korean society, may have left little space for it to be evaluated properly. But paradoxically, this showed that Kim, who has been a symbol in Korean TV writing history for over 40 years now, is "proof that she, headed into her seventies, still makes dramas that have an actual impact on reality, are controversial, and are 'real'",...More
[2010 10Asia's Awards] "Thank You" List 2010/12/31, Source, There are things that cannot be expressed through annual awards ceremonies. The big trophies are not enough to describe the gratitude we feel for the dramas that contributed to brightening our days during the past year. This is why 10Asia is presenting the "Thank You" list in which we selected 10 memorable dramas. This is a shout-out to all those dramas that at time melted our hearts with highly appealing looks, made our hands and feet cringe yet leave our eyes and mouths smiling with famous lines, delighted us at the mere sight of some characters and left the single viewers green with jealously with the romance scenes. Let us thank all these dramas that took our emotions on a most exciting roller coaster ride. So thank you! Eye-Cleanser of the YearKBS2 TV "Sungkyunkwan Scandal": Jalgeum Quartet
