  • [Guest Post] The Great Kim Myeong-min

    2014/01/11, Source,
    By Eve Berliner   In a transmutation of infinite mystery, he seeps into the interior of the character and disappears into its burning essence. He is the mind. He is the body. He is the history. He is Beethoven in the guise of Maestro Kang, his hair flying in the wind, the majesty upon him ("Beethoven Virus"). He is Jang Joon-hyuk, the brilliant surgeon, relentless, amoral, the genius with the heart of ice and arrogance who leaves you haunted and weeping ("White Tower"). He is the beautiful young man, Jong-woo, brave and ironic, stricken by Lou Gehrig's Disease ("Closer to Heaven"), in a state of dying as he falls deeply in love,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.11.08 ~ 2013.11.10

    2013/11/11,
    "Thor: The Dark World" has lit up the top of the Korean box office once again, claiming 655,484 (37%) over 711 screens to advance its total tally now to just over 2 million admissions. Marvel Comic's epic sequel has already grossed $327 million, almost doubling its production budget of $170 million as comic fans, kids, and cinephiles continue to pour in to the theatres to watch Mr. Odinson save the Earth day once again. The highest local flick came in the form of Park Hong-soo's "Commitment", an action drama that tackles Korea's fractured national identity and has Choi Seung-hyeon's character torn between higher powers and those he holds dear. "Commitment" is the Park's debut feature and in it he enlisted the help of director/screenwriting Kim Soo-yeong ("Color of Woman", "Vampire Cop Ricky"). Last week no less than six Korean features found themselves in the top tier, however November's second weekend was less forgiving and forcefully ejected "Days of Wrath", "Hwayi : A Monster Boy", and "Top Star" from proceedings,...More

    Sports film based on a true story hits North American theatres on June 1, 2012 CJ Entertainment brings "As One" (aka Korea, original title) to North American theatres this summer on June 1, 2012.  The film, based on a true story about the first ever united North and South Korean sports team, will be releasing in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Vancouver, Toronto, and Los Angeles (L.A. release on June 8, 2012).   A touching true story about the historic first Team Korea "As One" recounts the dramatic tale of the first unified Korean team that competed at the 1991 World Table Tennis Championships in Chiba, Japan. South Korea's ping-pong star Hyeon Jeong-hwa and North Korea's LI Bun-hee have each suffered humbling defeats at the hands of China's formidable "Ping-Pong Witch" every time they reach the tournament's final rounds.  Forced by politicians to suddenly team up as the first united team Korea, HYEON and LI experience only conflict and mistrust, and face the loss of their championship dreams.  But game-by-game, the two begin to build teamwork and find a budding friendship.  When political winds change again and just as suddenly an announcement is made to disband team Korea, the two young women must prove to their people and the world that teamwork can outshine the dark shadows of a painful history,...More
