  • [HanCinema's Year in Review] William's Top 10 Movies 2013

    A few ground rules to start out with. First, the only movies going on this list are the ones with a South Korean release date of 2013. Including any films not released in that timeframe would just be unfairly tantalizing. It's bad enough that most of my weekly reviews are for movies you're not going to be able to watch for several months. Second, I'm kind of skeptical on the concept of Top 10 Lists in the first place. My Top 3 are pretty definite, but everything after just lies in the generic range of "pretty good". Believe me- there are ones I'd like to include here, but I decided to err on the side of obscurity, since hey, isn't finding new stuff a lot more fun anyway?,...More
  • B-grade films finding a niche market on IPTV

    2013/11/02, Source,
    B-grade movies - mostly adult films - are rising to prominence in home theaters because of the rise of Internet protocol television (IPTV) and, accordingly, there are more opportunities for filmmakers who want to dabble in them. As filmmakers don't need to worry about "securing" a screen through TV, many have wondered whether movies on demand will pave the way for diversity in the local industry that is monopolized by Korean and Western blockbusters. Even so, the presence of distributors and conglomerates looms in the shadows, threatening the IPTV industry. In the late 2000s, movies on demand helped revolutionize at-home film consumption in a nation that has never had a DVD market,...More
  • Jang's 'The Flu' nothing to sneeze at

    2013/08/26, Source,
    Actor Jang Hyeok recently reunited with film director Kim Seong-su, a decade after they worked together on the comedy "Please Teach Me English", for the newly-released movie "The Flu". Released on Aug. 14, the thriller about a deadly flu outbreak just south of Seoul overcame intense competition at the box office and opened in the No. 1 spot. As of Thursday, it was still the third most popular movie in the land and had earned nearly 16 billion won ($14.3 million). Many have credited the success of "The Flu" to Jang's action scenes, as he plays a rescue worker named Kang Ji-gu,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.06.28 ~ 2013.06.30

    Marc Forster's "World War Z" continues its reign at the top of the Korean box office. Forster's post-apocalyptic horror cleared 933,807 (46%) admissions during its second weekend appearance, giving Brad Pitt's latest 3.1M admissions to take to the bank. The film cost $190M to produce and has already comfortably grossed $259M worldwide ($124M of which came from its own U.S. screenings). Last week the film easily dislodged Jang Cheol-soo's "Secretly and Greatly" at the top, pulling in over 800,000 tickets more than Jang's highly successful second feature. This week the Korean showing was a little limp, with only "Secretly and Greatly" and Kim Yong-gyoon's "Killer Toon" making the grade. Summertime is horror time in Korea, and with that comes Kim's new film "Killer Toon" starring Lee Si-yeong, Eom Gi-joon and Kim Hyeon-woo. The film opened its account with 390,729 (18.6%) admissions and follows the webcomic creator Ji-yoon (played by Lee Si-yeong),...More
