  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.07.26 ~ 2013.07.28

    Despite the release of DreamWorks Animation's "Turbo" and the latest comic book film "The Wolverine", it was "Red 2" that managed to remain Korea's film of choice. Director Dean Parisot's "Red 2" claimed 666,048 admissions (25.9%) in its second weekend out, holding off a host of challengers to round out the month of July in good condition. In addition to these two Hollywood features getting stuck in, this week will also see two mammoth Korean films go head-to-head for the summer crowds and crown. Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" and Kim Byeong-woo's "The Terror Live" are both officially released on August 1st, with the latter having already scored a sneaky 122,762 (4.9%) admissions. "The Terror Live" stars the popular Korean actor Ha Jeong-woo ("The Berlin File", "Nameless Gangster", "The Client") as a T.V. anchor that has to get back into the game when a bomb-blasting terrorist threatens Korea's capital city,...More

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] End of Animal

    Jo Sung-hee received much praise for his 2010 directorial debut "End of Animal" which made its international debut at the 29th Vancouver International Film Festival. Critics and viewers alike lauded this gritty post-apocalyptic fantasy horror both locally and abroad - marking the young filmmaker's successful entry into the competitive Korean film market. His second feature, the fantasy romance film "Werewolf Boy" (2012), was a box office hit, clawing in almost seven million admissions at the end of last year. "End of Animal" has been on my list of films to watch since its eerie poster cross my path. Perhaps it was my own personal taste in the darker side of the screen, as I enjoy the more cynical and shadowy dimension of cinema. It is for this reason that I can say that Jo Sung-hee's "End of Animal" pleased me greatly,...More
