The man who wanted to die meets someone he wants to kill!
Min-ho always tries to commit suicide. He is in the hospital long term from a brain disorder and suicide attempts when Sang-eob joins his room. It's the man Min-ho would risk his life to find and kill. He has amnesia and is fully paralyzed but Min-ho can't let him off easy. Although Min-ho isn't in the best health, he has to live if he wants to kill Sang-eob.

The man who survived death meets an irritating man!
One day, Sang-eob opens his eyes to find himself a hospital room. He doesn't know who he is and he can't move a muscle. Min-ho is in the next bed with powerful eyes. They're both patients, but he's irritating. Every time Sang-eob wakes up, his head hurts, his body aches. As his memory returns, he remembers hostile things about Min-ho.

August 2010, an extraordinary combat between the two men begins.

  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Cheon Ho-jin Movies

    Korean cinema and Korean drama are worlds apart in many ways. From the type of stories told and characters shown to style of acting and how actors and actresses are valued in them. Some actors remain in movies and others have an impressive career in dramas. A lot of them, however, try to balance between the two worlds. Cheon Ho-jin is one such actor who has also done it successfully,...More

  • Korean Movies Coming to International Film Festival

    2011/02/03, Source,
    By Mark Russell The full Academy Awards nominations have been announced, and while it was disappointing that Korea wasn't included in the Best Foreign Language film category (or, indeed, in any category), I'm sure we'll be seeing a Korean film or two in the nominations in future years. Much more interesting to me is the resurgence that Korean movies are having at international film festivals. Festivals, especially the top ones like Berlin, Cannes, and Venice, give you a much better idea about international trends and hot topics, where reputations are built, laying the groundwork for more mainstream success,...More

  • [INTERVIEW] Actor Yoo Hae-jin - Part 1

    2010/08/25, Source,
    Actor Yoo Hae-jin [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] Yoo Hae-jin is an actor with a face that is hard to predict. With his comical yet strangely sharp facial features, he has played roles crossing between a police and gangster, a clown and butcher, and an idiot to villian, while managing to create completely different characters to the many 'bullies' he has been. But he is an actor who is hard to predict not only when he is acting. He is famous for being a perfectionist who will go to the region whose dialect he has to learn for his role and take dozens of ideas to the set of film "JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard" in which he was an animal. He is also a romantist who said his favorite movie is "In the Mood for Love" and will hum a tune by Nat King Cole in a low voice. But the Yoo who is best at comedic roles and is the so-called 'indispensable supporting actor' for being glib, is quite reticent in person,...More

And it's not because people recognize me now but how can one live dwelling on their own looks like that? I did a bit when I was younger and going through puberty but I'm past that age.
