  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Stray Dogs": A Cold, and Thrill-less, Misogynistic Mess

    In the spotlight this week: Ha Won-joon's "Stray Dogs"... Having recently returned to Kang Woo-seok's stunning adaptation "Moss", I was eager to catch "Stray Dogs" (2014) and see how this debutant tackled this popular thriller setting and to what effect. Watching Ryoo dodge and decrypt Cheon's almost watertight grip on his small rural village was, indeed, thrilling, because we never really felt comfortable that our hero would escape with his life or the answer he sought. "Stray Dogs", however, is no "Moss", and despite its sound premise and sneaky set-ups, the film flopped (attracting less than 1.2K admissions earlier this year) and failed to fully adrenalize much of its plot as dreary exposition, manic misogyny, and poor character convictions put this dejected dog down before we even suspected it was sick,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Bedevilled": A Gorgeously Grotesque Revenge Rampage

    In the Spotlight this Week: Jang Cheol-soo's "Bedevilled"... Jang Cheol-soo has an incredible cine-clock ticking within, a marvellous metronome that I like to imagine he has swinging and tocking above his desk as he writes and plans his work. This constant ticking then harmonises with whatever creative genius takes hold of him as puts pen to paper. A film like Jang's debut film "Bedevilled" is the result of such a ritual; a gorgeously grotesque genre film that hypnotises and horrifies with the percussive precision of a mad watchmaker come autistic composer. The film ebbs and flows like a daring dream; one that's sweet and surreal, but whose intent is deranged and two-faced, mixing together melodrama, horror, and revenge into a compelling cinematic concoction that bubbles and boils over in the most spectacle fashion imaginable,...More
  • [HanCinema's Image Gallery] "Bedevilled"

    A selection of shots from Jang Cheol-soo's island horror: "Bedevilled" Jang Cheol-soo returned to the spotlight last year with the massively successful "Secretly and Greatly", a film that raced into the year's top ten with 6.9 million admissions. However before that star-studded event, Jang put forward the gorgeously grotesque "Bedevilled": a revenge horror every bit as detailed and compelling as last year's flick. The film contains some of the most intriguing images I've seen in modern Korean cinema, visuals and moments that still haunt and harass my memory banks. Enjoy! [Spoilers],...More
  • [HanCinema Feature] Yin-Yang Jang: "Secretly and Greatly" Vs. "Bedevilled"

    Jang Cheol-soo's yin-yang recipe for monster success... Something strange happened while I was watching Jang Cheol-soo's "Secretly and Greatly"; a stark shift that threw me away from Ryoo-hwan's light-hearted comedy antics, and then dumped me in a rain-slapped realm of abandoned apartments, blood, and bullets. The film had switched genres on me, transformed itself from a lurid and laughable land into a dark and depressing action-orientated abyss. This re-creation of the world, from a goofy K-comedy to action noir, was not entirely a surprise, and I began to think back to Jang's debut film, the gorgeously grotesque "Bedevilled", and realised that a very similar narrative pattern exists there too. Both films seem to be noticeably split, fractured really, into two distinct halves: two genres, not smoothly mixed, but loosely overlapped and singed on either end,...More
  • [HanCinema's Afterwords] KOFIC Podcast Review - Special Episode

    In this Episode: Korean Cinema in 2013…  KOFIC recently launched "Korean Cinema Today", a bimonthly podcast that's all about the wonderful world of Korean cinema. Hosted by Pierce Conran, the show features the latest Korean cinema news, features, discussions, and interviews with special guests from the industry. In this special episode, Pierce has Darcy Paquet in studio to talk about the past year's big features, their top 5 films of the year, industry trends, as well as mention some of the big period films coming our way in 2014. "Korean Cinema Today" is only four episodes in, and so while they are still finding their feet, the show is shaping up to be another fantastic new initiative by KOFIC. The show is hosted by Pierce Conran (editor of Modern Korean Cinema, Twitch Korean film correspondent, and writer for the Korean Film Council) and thus far he has already had interviews with Kwak Gyeong-taek ("Friend 2"), Lee Cheol-ha ("Hello Orchestra"), and has Darcy Paquet (one of Korea's leading and dedicated film critics) on the show to talk about 2003 (a landmark year for Korean cinema).

  • [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

  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.07.19 ~ 2013.07.21

    "The Best Never Rest" is the slogan for this week's number one film "RED 2", a sequel to the popular 2010 action comedy. Director Dean Parisot's film claimed the lion's share of the ticket sales over the weekend (832,276), but, unlike previous weeks this month, the admissions were a little more evenly distributed. Last week Kim Yong-hwa's "Mr. Go" was released and, despite a slow start for Korea's first stereoscopic 3D effort, the film eventually managed over 500,000 admissions (19.8%). "Mr. Go" came close to sneaking past Jo Eui-seok and Kim Byeong-seo's "Cold Eyes" (21.3% with 576, 360 admissions) in second, an effort that would've forced "Cold Eyes" to step back from the position it fought so hard for last weekend,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.07.05 ~ 2013.07.07

    It is a shift from brain-dead to brilliant as Marc Forster's "World War Z" reluctantly relinquishes the crown to the local action drama "Cold Eyes". After two weeks at the top Forster's zombie epic was convincingly outvoted by this new Korean release that burst out the gates with 1.3 million admissions. Released on the third, "Cold Eyes" is the product of directors Jo Eui-seok ("Make It Big" and "The World of Silence") and cinematographer Kim Byeong-seo (directorial debut). Starring Seol Kyeong-gu, Jeong Woo-seong, and Han Hyo-joo, "Cold Eyes" follows two highly observant and intelligent members of the Korean Police Forces Special Crime Unit (SCU). Chief Hwang and his newly appointed Yoon-joo must pull together if they are to stop James, the cold-hearted leader of a criminal organisation who continues to evade their nets,...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
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.06.21 ~ 2013.06.23

    Jang Cheol-soo's "Secretly and Greatly" gets denied a third week at the top courtesy of the Hollywood adaptation "World War Z". The rights to Max Brooks' post-apocalyptic horror were claimed in 2007 by Brad Pitt's own Plan B Entertainment, and tells the tale of a retired UN employee (Pitt's character Gerry Lane) who travels the world in order to stop the zombie pandemic. The film opened in Korea with 1,303,675 (55.56%) admissions, nudging the star-studded "Secretly and Greatly" down one place with 504,997 (20.32%). Jang Cheol-soo made his debut in 2010 with psychological horror "Bedevilled", a brutally graphic revenge flick that earned him a number of local awards, including four Best New Directors titles. Three years later and Jang emerges with "Secretly and Greatly", an action comedy with a number of popular faces that seemed destined for success,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Talk] "Bedevilled" @ 24fps

    Jang Cheol-soo's second feature "Secretly and Greatly" is currently closing in on 6 million admissions at the box office, but before it goes any higher I wanted to zoom-in on my perhaps my favourite scene in modern Korean cinema. The above image is taken from "Bedevilled" (2010), Jang's debut film after having assisted Kim Ki-duk with "Samaria" (2004) as well as "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring" (2003). "Bedevilled" was one of earlier Korean films I watched, and it set the bar high in terms of its stunning cinematography and visual story telling. Jang's psychological horror made its premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and won a string of awards from Korean organisations (including four 'Best New Director' awards), but sadly only sold a little over 160,000 tickets during its run in theatres. The film was a critical success, and if you're talking about Korean revenge films, "Bedevilled" is one of the most hellishly satisfying thrills out there,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.06.14 - 2013.06.16

    Jang Cheol-soo's second directorial effort "Secretly and Greatly" managed to just outplay "The Man of Steel" for another impressive weekend at the top. The action comedy added a little over a million admissions to bring its total count to 5.2M. That makes it the third highest grossing Korean film of the year behind "The Berlin File" (7.1M) and "Miracle in Cell No. 7" (12.8M). Starring Kim Soo-hyeon-I as the sleeper cell agent Ryoo-hwan, "Secretly and Greatly" tells the tale of three North Korean spies adapting to South Korean life, but things get a little interesting when word comes down that they are to committed suicide. Jang Cheol-soo was the man behind the 2009 psychological thriller "Bedevilled" and has worked on a number of Kim Ki-duk's films since 2002. "Secretly and Greatly" marks an interesting turn of genre for this exciting Korean director and has been attracting a lot of attention in Korea since its release earlier in the month,...More

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Bedevilled"

    2011/09/17, Source,
    Subtlety is a foreign concept to "Bedevilled", dealing more with superlative than finesse. Not to say that's entirely a shame - in fact, it's more strategic than anything else. The audience is manipulated upon entering the cinema, expecting a revenge thriller or typical horror and instead being emotionally thrashed by confronting horror and cruelty that doesn't at all follow the entertaining hack and slash disposable violence and cathartic resolution of the horror genre. Our main character, Hae Won, is a morally obtuse city slicker whose pathos indirectly hurts those around her, whether it be refusing to help a woman being beaten or putting clerical procedure over a person's livelihood. That same lethargy deals its damage to her childhood friend, Kim Bok-Nam, when she visits the island of her upbringing,...More

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] Revenge: Korean Style!

    Alfred Hitchcock once said "Revenge is sweet and not fattening", a stance shared in Korea as the suspense thriller genre has become synonymous with their film industry. Along with the melodrama, revenge films and themes have become all too easy to identify in some of the most famous films to come out of Korea in the last ten years. This apparent sweet tooth has indeed been affected by Korea's turbulent socio-political history and perhaps a social consciousness persists that past injustices have not been adequately addressed both globally and locally,...More
