  • [HanCinema's Film Review + Video] "Red Eye": A Terrible Trip Down Memory Lane

    My introduction to Korean cinema was less than stellar. It wasn't "Old Boy", "Memories of Murder", or "The Host" (i.e. some or other respectable modern masterpiece), but the trope-driven train wreck "Red Eye". I recently stumbled across this overzealous zeitgeist again on, and my nagging nostalgia turned against my better judgement and I fired it up,...More

    Based on true stories, "The Attorney", left, and "Way Back Home", center, are currently screening nationwide. [JoongAng Ilbo] At the start of this winter's big hit movie "The Attorney", there is a caption that reads: "This film is based on a true story, but please be informed that it is a work of fiction". "The Attorney" is loosely based on the infamous "Burim case", which took place in Busan in 1981, when the military government under Chun Doo-hwan rounded up more than 20 university students, teachers and workers who were members of a book club and falsely accused them of being Communists. The accused were detained and tortured in an effort to shore up support for the Chun regime, which had seized power just the year before,...More

    Kim Woo-taek, 49, has stepped into the musical industry with a large-scale creative musical "December". The musical, which features songs written by the late singer-songwriter Kim Kwang-seok, will be staged starting Monday at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts.

In March, the small-scale musical "Where the Wind Blows" started the trend of using Kim's songs in musicals. It was followed by "The Days", which swept numerous awards in April and is dubbed the "legend of creative musicals". Before it was made, creative musicals - which refer to musicals made in Korea from scratch - were no match for big-named licensed musicals,...More

    Actor Joo Won, who made his debut in the 2010 KBS hit "Bread, Love and Dreams", also known as "King of Baking: Kim Tak Goo", has been opening eyes with his latest drama "Good Doctor", where he plays an autistic pediatrician. Joo has been garnering positive reviews, despite worries about how people with mental disabilities are portrayed in the media. "It was the role all the actors wanted to play", said Joo at a press conference promoting the drama on Aug. 5. "But I'm still researching the best way to show the character",...More
