"The Admiral: Roaring Currents"

There were no losers in the battle between epic historical blockbusters this summer. "KUNDO : Age of the Rampant", "The Admiral: Roaring Currents" and "Pirates", released one week after another from July 23, were all impressive.

The film industry and Korean fans were all interested to see if these blockbusters would become box office hits. All three of them cost as much as W15 billion  (US$1=W1,018) to produce, while Korea's top film distributers -- Showbox, CJ E&M, and Lotte Entertainment -- were all involved in the production. They were set during the Chosun Dynasty and featured star-studded casts that included top stars Choi Min-sik, Ha Jeong-woo, Kang Dong-won, and Son Ye-jin...More

"Edge of Tomorrow" pushes past 3 million to top the table once more…

Last weekend Doug Liman's science fiction adaptation "Edge of Tomorrow" snatched over 1.5M admissions to take gold, and while its haul was significantly less this time around, the 679K (40%) it pulled over the weekend was enough to secure a second reign. Cruise and his sci-fi flicks go down like a treat in Korea, and paired with the tale's Japanese origin, Liman's futuristic frenzy has thus far managed to amass over 3M admissions ($25M). And while Cruise and his co-star Emily Blunt were blazing at the top, two new local films made their entry into the top ten in the form of "Gyeongju" and "For The Emperor"...More

Joseon Dynasty through film

Source | 2014/06/08 | | Permalink

The Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) ruled over Korea for more than 500 years. The lives and times of the 27 monarchs are some of the most widely used material in Korean film. In 2014 alone, a couple of films set with the royal dynasty as background will be released. Earlier this year, theaters saw the release of "The Fatal Encounter", a film which deals with the times of King Jeongjo (r. 1776-1800). Two more films are set to be released later this year. They are "Sado", which revolves around King Yeongjo (r. 1724-1776), grandfather to Jeongjo, and "KUNDO : Age of the Rampant", which focuses on King Cheoljong (r. 1849-1863)...More
