Today's teens aspire to YouTube stardom

Source | 2013/08/03 | | Permalink

With a heavy-duty tripod in one hand and a sleek Sony NEX-7 camera in the other, 18-year-old David Suh is wandering the streets of Itaewon, central Seoul, looking for the perfect background to film another video for his YouTube channel: DavidSuhDance.

When he finds a quiet spot with good lighting, he sets up the camera, gets into frame, starts the music, then begins to dance. The tune is electronic dubstep; his motions at once controlled and jerky as he pops and locks to the irregular, jarring beats.

When Suh created his channel back in 2011, as a first-year high school student, he did not have any grand ambitions...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] Returning to the Sunny side of Love.

2013/07/27 | | Permalink

Korean films are particularly intrigued by the tragic tests time and memory can place on love. This fascination extends across genres and the results are often not the Hollywood fairy tale viewers might come to expect. We see this in recent films like "The Servant", where Choon-hyang (Korea's 'Juliet' played by Jo Yeo-jeong) suffers a devasting physical trauma that leaves her mentally and emotionally incapacitated, no longer able to remember the love and passion she once had for her forbidden lover Bang-ja (Kim Joo-hyeok). In Park Chan-wook's cult classic "Old Boy" Oh Dae-su (Choi Min-sik) is confronted with an impossible decision at the end, one that cruelly pits the love for his daughter against his own sanity. (I think it will be highly interesting to see how Spike Lee's version of the story's ending differs to Park's). There are other examples of how time and love collide in Korea cinema, often with truly memorable results, and recently I returned to one of the most successful dramas in recent years: Kang Hyeong-cheol's "Sunny - 2010"...More

Yoo Jin, 32, in a hot pink blouse, walked in with a bright smile on her face. She was outspoken unlike Min Chae-won, a reserved character that she played in "A Hundred Year's Inheritance", a weekend drama recently ended with a viewership of over 30 percent.

I feel so free. I think I played such an introvert...More
