  • [HanCinema's Event Coverage] KCON LA 2016 Saturday Concert Review + Poster Giveaway

    There is something magical about a K-pop concert. Perhaps it's the well-known talent, finesse, and beauty of K-pop stars. Perhaps it's the zest, intricacy, and cleverness of their music. Perhaps it's the fact that live K-pop performances are not easily come by in North America. KCON USA has been the major organization through which K-pop has become more accessible. Smaller organizers have begun to make places like New York and LA hotspots for K-pop. But the opportunity to see favorites is still far and few between. Regardless of the "why", the concerts at KCON LA 2016 presented by Toyota were a surreal experience. Let's jump into the first night of concerts when acts from rookie to pro graced the stage and had the crowd roaring the entire time,...More

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Secretly and Greatly": Dreamy agents and their rude awakening

    In the Spotlight this Week: "Secretly and Greatly" by Jang Cheol-soo In 2010 Jang Cheol-soo burst onto the scene with the gorgeously grotesque thriller "Bedevilled". It was a horrific event that stunned all those who dared indulge, and tagged Jang as one crafty talent to keep an eye on, reportedly "the best find of 2010". Since his bloody debut, however, Jang has deprived the public of a subsequent session and we have had to eagerly wait for his next cinematic outing. That wait was over when in June, 2013 "Secretly and Greatly" hit the circuit: a complex action drama that broke the all-time single day ticket haul for a Korean film with 919,036 stubs sold. Fans flooded the theatres to catch Jang's second outing, and the film eventually climbed its way to 6.9 million admissions to became the 5th highest grossing Korean movie of the year. "Secretly and Greatly" follows three young North Korean sleeper cell agents embedded within a warm village community. Ryoo-hwan, Hae-rang, and the youngster Hae-jin, all went through intense training back home and represent the North's most promising secret servants,...More
