    • Smartphones set off webtoon boom

      2014/06/14, Source,
      On a bustling subway ride to work, it's not hard to find people staring into their smartphones or PC tablets, scrolling quickly down the screen to see what comes next. On sidewalks or in coffee shops, the situation is the same. If a smile can be spotted on the user's face, it wouldn't be far-fetched to say they could be reading one of their favorite webtoons, a term coined in the early 2000s combining "web" and "cartoon", which describes comic strips distributed online. "When I have idle time on my hands, I read webtoons through my smartphone, because it's just easy", said Jeon Su-jin, 25, a university student. "With the smallest effort, I can flexibly spice up my spare time. When I have only 10 to 20 minutes of free time, like when I am waiting for the bus or something, there's nothing better than to read webtoons",...More
    • Using webtoons as source for movies can be double-edged sword

      2013/12/06, Source,
      In recent years, the story lines of popular webtoons, or web cartoon series published online, have been the to-go choice for filmmakers when they find themselves short of fresh material to put on the big screen. However, using webtoons as a major source of films is considered a double-edged sword. The films are easy to publicize, but they have a high risk of becoming box-office failures if they can't provide viewers with something more than the original webtoon. A webtoon titled "A.P.T", written by first-generation webtoonist Kang Pool, was the first to be made into a horror movie of the same name, starring Ko So-young as the lead actress in 2006,...More

    A.P.T. by cakra

    hn Byeong-ki, the person who's brought us Nightmare, Phone and Bunshinsaba, is back in 2006 with A.P.T. Based on a comic by Gangfull, Mr. Ahn's A.P.T. is still rely on his previous effort and trick.

    Sejin (Ko So-young) is a new tenant in an old apartment in a Seoul suburb. She befriend with a wheel-chair bound girl, Yu-yeon (Jang Hee-jin), an orphan who's take care by neighborhood volunteers. Sejin has a unique hobby, observing the apartment units on the other side. One day, she notice something, these apartments are turn off their light at the very same time, exactly on 9:56 PM. Next thing happen is someone is found dead. This thing keeps happening and Sejin start to suspect something weird is occurring. And then she' decide to start an investigation.

    It seems Mr. Ahn still believe with the power of the long-haired-ghost, while nowadays it's kind of tired. We need a breath of new tale into the horror genre, especially the Asian Horror. But by watching this movie, I think Mr. Ahn is not that kind of innovative person. The movie is also full with routines that this genre be familiar with. Nothing new here. The good point is A.P.T. is more enjoyable than Bunshinsaba or even Phone. But due the release time, it's not appealing anymore.

    It says that Ko So-young is a 4 year absent before return to movie scene with A.P.T. Alas, she more like a clone of Ha Ji-won (Nightmare, Phone) rather than a solid performance, while the débutant Jang Hee-jin, who's stunningly beautiful, is also act well.

    So if you still fond by this kind of movie, A.P.T. could still amuse. But if you need something new or different, you better skip this.
