A Muse (은교)

은교 (Eun-gyo)

Directed by Jeong Ji-woo (정지우)

Screenplay by

Melodrama Romance

129min | Release date in South Korea :

Also known as "Eungyo"
Director Jeong Ji-woo, who directed "Close to You" and "Modern Boy" and also wrote "Moss", returns with a film based on a bestseller by Park Bum-sin. The film is a melodrama dealing with a triangle relationship involving poet Lee Jeok-yo (Park Hae-il) who’s in his 70’s, writer SEO Ji-woo (Kim Moo-yeol) in his 30’s, and a 17 year-old girl, Eun-kyo (Kim Go-eun-I). In fact, the original novel was a sensational hit, which was described as a ‘story that should be read at night’ by the readers. This film is expected to succeed the expectations of bestselling novels that were adapted to the big screen in 2011 such as "The Crucible" and "Punch". In addition, Park Hae-il, who had the leading role in 2011 with the No. 1 box office film, "Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon", will prove his star power with this film once again. Park had to spend 10 hours every day to apply make-up in order to transform into an elderly in his 70’s. For such transformation, one of the Korea’s best make-up artists, Song Jong-hui, joined the production team.

  • [HanCinema Feature] Historical Hysteria: Korean period films coming in 2014

    Joseon pirates, legends, swordsmen, angels and more coming our way in 2014... Cinematic journeys back to Joseon and beyond have rewarded the Korean film industry with a string of profitable historical yarns, a trend that has got producers drooling with the prospect of tapping deeper into this regenerative cash cow. Recently, it's been Han Jae-rim's "The Face Reader" (9.1M admissions) that has had locals flustered and, in 2005, it was Lee Joon-ik's "The King and the Clown" that became the first Joseon-era flick to pass the 10 million admissions mark. It's big business with a cultural twist that locals enjoy supporting, international audiences love lapping up, and a trend that 2014 is keen to take advance of as a host of new retrospectives are getting raring to go,...More
