  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.10.25 - 2013.10.27

    Gook Dong-seok's disturbing opening act "Blood and Ties" step into the game this past weekend and narrowly claimed the majority vote over last week's favourite: "Gravity". Gook's film drew in a spritely 648,192 filmgoers over 611 screens; a victory somewhat salted by the fact that Cuarón's 3D space thriller still floated away with most of the money (37.3%), for technical reasons. "Hwayi : A Monster Boy" and "Hope" gracefully gave way to Gook's debut, each taking about a hundred thousand admissions hit compared to their efforts last weekend. In addition to "Blood and Ties", Park Joong-hoon's "Top Star" and Shin Yeon-shick's "Rough Play" shook up the middle order somewhat; and the omnibus drama "If You Were Me 6" (4,853 admissions) almost became the fourth new Korean release to snare a top ten finish,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.10.11 ~ 2013.10.13

    Jang Joon-hwan's  "Hwayi : A Monster Boy" opened strong at a peaceful box office this past weekend. Jang, who is best known for his multifaceted debut "Save the Green Planet", has been out of the cinematic limelight for some time now and found his comeback well-supported with 719,454 (45%) admissions in weekend one. Last week's number one, Lee Joon-ik's "Hope", subsequently bowed out into second place with 444,591 (25.5%), followed by "Tough as Iron" (133,250 – 7.7%) and "The Face Reader" (120,126 – 7%). These local flavours dominated the upper echelons of the chart and together constituted 85.9% of the total ticket sales, leaving a string of foreign films to scrap it out for those remaining stubs,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.10.04 - 2013.10.06

    Han Jae-rim's "The Face Reader" relinquished pole position to Lee Joon-ik's new drama "Wish – 2013". Lee has a preference for period pieces with films such as "Hwangsanbul" (2003), "Blades of Blood" (2010), and "Battlefield Heroes" (2010) under his belt, but the director is best known for his period drama "The King and the Clown" which claimed 12.3 million admissions in 2005. Lee's latest is his first film since 2010 and it grabbed some 475,611 (27%) over the weekend, advancing its total tally to just under 800,000. Lee didn't have it all his own way though, "Wish – 2013" had some stiff competition from another local release in the form of Ahn Kwon-tae's "Tough as Iron". Anh's roadside family comedy came out with 407,707 (24%) over 683 screens to secured second place while "The Face Reader" slipped two places in third,...More

    In 2003, Lee Joon-ik directed "Once Upon a Time in a Battlefield" (also known as "Hwangsanbul") a period comedy set in 7th Century Korea that depicted the famous Battle of Hwangsanbeo. Now in 2011, its successor "Battlefield Heroes" has staked its claim as one of the most successful films of the year.

    2010/11/18, Source,
    Actress Han Ji-hye [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] Han Ji-hye now has seven years of acting experience under her belt, a career long enough to consider KBS TV series "Sweet 18", the first TV series she played the female lead, a drama from her past. And it may have seemed like she came to a brief halt when she showed similar acting skills in film "My boyfriend is type-B" and "Sweet 18", but she expanded the range of characters she plays through MBC drama "East of Eden" and film "Blades of Blood". The reckless high school girl who had no particular dream in "Sweet 18" has matured into a woman who helps a young man achieve his dreams in KBS "Drama Special - Pianist" and a reliable senior to SHINee member Minho who is taking his first shot at acting. 10: You're standing in front of the camera for the first time in a year since getting married. Han Ji-hye: I actually went to a lot of events such as film festivals but the last time I appeared in a TV series was "East of Eden".

[Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] In August of 1950, when the Korean War was well under way, a letter was found in the pocket of student soldier Lee Woo-geun who died while fighting in a battle to defend the Nakdong River. The letter, which the 16-year-old had failed to send off to his mother, read the following: "Mother, I killed a person. It was such a brutal death. Why do we have to go into war? I'm thinking frightening thoughts. I wish the war would end quickly and feel your warm embrace". Film "71-Into the Fire" starts with this letter. What leads the film is not its blockbuster scale which cost the production 11.3 billion won, nor its extravagant cast. The camera operates in order to shed light onto the existence of student soldiers who took part in the meaningless war yet have failed to be remembered for their sacrifice,...More

He melted viewers' hearts through his role in SBS' "THE CITY HALL" last year and soon after played the stylish detective in movie "Secret - 2009". Then in order to play the role of Lee Mong-hak, he armed himself with sharp teeth and a long sword for film "Blades of Blood" which is set to open in theaters on April 29. A slew of other large productions starring Cha, including movie "71-Into the Fire" and drama "ATHENA" are also standing in line for release later this year. Below are excerpts from 10Asia's interview with Cha Seung-won. 10: Your film "Blades of Blood" is awaiting release. It's already receiving a lot of hype because it's helmed by famed director Lee Joon-ik and stars yourself and actor Hwang Jeong-min. How do you feel about this movie? Cha Seung-won: I think it'll do roughly well. Roughly. (laugh) Last night I dreamt that I was heading somewhere, walking on a field covered with snow. Snow means wealth.

(laugh) Cha: We all like him very much. There is no reason not to like him. He had a really tough time on set after having been an idol group singer.

    "I did not just want to act the role of a blind man; instead, I wanted to act comfortably while I just closed my eyes", said actor Hwang Jeong-min, who appeared in the movie "Blades of Blood" and demonstrated realistic acting as a blind character. He played the legendary blind swordsman Hwang Jung Hak in the movie, which was filmed against the backdrop of the middle of the Chosun dynasty. The character is a friend of Lee Mong Hak (Cha Seung-won), who has been dreaming of creating a whole new world and instigating a rebellion, but in the end they end up going their separate ways due to different ideologies regarding the uprising. In a recent interview held in a café located in Gangnam, Hwang Jeong-min said, "Instead of trying to be a blind man, I tried my best to act as natural as possible suitable to the storyline and the character. To prepare for the role, I went to a school for the blind, participated in a class and talked a lot with classmates. But basically, I thought that just trying to imitate those blind people was not important. The character Hwang Jung Hak is a blind man, but the more important point was to understand the inner side of the character, and I tried to approach this internal perspective when I acted",...More

    The cast of "Blades of Blood" from left to right: Hwang Jeong-min, Baek Seong-hyeon, Cha Seung-won and Han Ji-hye [Movie Production company Haneul] They have all dreamt about the moon that escaped from the clouds. Lee Mong-hak (played by Cha Seung-won) wants to shine as the king who renews the rotten Chosun period and Hwang Jeong-hak (played by Hwang Jeong-min) hopes he can clear away clouds by blocking Lee Mong-hak who took away his conviction and the life of his friend. Kyeon-ja (played by Baek Seong-hyeon) wants to overcome the pent-up anger he feels towards Lee Mong-hak who killed his father. And Baek Ji (played by Han Ji-hye) simply wants to walk under the moonlight with the person she loves. However, Kyeon-ja screams "Have you once in your life ever lived in a world like that" and fail to step under the moon's brilliant light. Traces of the war and laughter from "Hwangsanbul" and love and tragedy from the "The King and the Clown", both productions by Lee Joon-ik, can easily be found in his new pic "Blades of Blood". The film resembles “Hwangsanbul” in how the most serious situation and tragedy is melted away by humor and "The King and the Clown" when Kyeon-ja cries in a thunderous voice towards the craziness occuring in the palace. However, it is difficult to declare that "Blades of Blood" is director Lee's final masterpiece, just like the saying that it is hard to create a beautiful face with the perfect features. The conflicts amongst the characters are dull enough to seem trite and it cannot be concealed by the beautiful scenery or lyrical music. Will "Blades of Blood" be able to become a different moon for the audience who has already experienced and found joy from the prominent historical drama like "Slave Hunters?" The movie opens in local theaters on April 29,...More

It's not like Sword eith no name or similar dumb movies. It's trully a good one with believable swordfight. Poor Kwang. :(

Finally a good "chosun-style" swordfighting war movie. The characters are great such as the actors.
Oh, I really can't wait this movie to be released, Can't wait to see this one!
