  • [HanCinema's Drama Review] "Six Flying Dragons" Episode 4

    The ending of the last episode was gloomy, and the denouement we get here is almost enough to make us consider that maybe Bang-won has gone too far. It's at that point that the perspective more fully shifts to Ttang-sae (played by Yoon Chan-yeong), the street urchin with more important parentage than he could have possibly guessed. Ttang-sae is given a brief respite from destiny, but then we see what happens to those who don't fight the Goryeo regime as Bang-won did. They get crushed anyway,...More

  • CJ Entertainment America to release Korean Movie on DVDs and Blu-rays in the USA

    If the last time you checked, Korean filmmaking was all about horror ... It may be time to check again!

G&A is now working with CJ Entertainment America, the U.S. arm of Asia's premier entertainment company and Korea's #1 filmmaker and distributor, CJ Entertainment & Media (CJ E&M).

    She created a friendly image for herself, playing an energetic, curly-haired young woman in a daily family drama. She then took on the female lead role in a traditional drama, which scored a 50 percent viewership rating. She also experienced failure after appearing in a trendy drama about a professional working woman, which saw low ratings. This is who actress Han Hye-jin is. During a career which could hardly be described as a long one, there are also probably not that many actors who have played such various roles and received such a variety of responses from viewers as Han has. But what makes her so interesting is not just that she has appeared in not-so-easy-to-define dramas in the past. What is important is that she, who has appeared and worked and gone through many experiences, is still working, in the present tense. After SBS drama "Terroir" ended, she took on the role of an intelligent female detective in the film "No Mercy", which recently opened in theaters, and is currently traveling throughout the country to shoot SBS TV series "Jejoongwon".

    Actor Seol Kyeong-gu [Beck Una/10Asia] Seol Kyeong-gu (Seol): Wow, it's been such a long time. I came here today with the thought of meeting an old friend, not to do an interview. Was the last time we met for an interview for "Rikidozan"? At the trailer on set in Bucheon? Beck Una (Beck): Yes, you remember. That was the last time. Seol: Ha... That's when I started going through rough times. "Rikidozan" flopped (laugh), I didn't have any work for eight months after that and then tried frantically to lose weight in a month to shoot "Another Public Enemy", going into a state of panic. You can guess how I was from the fact that I would ask the director, "Can we stop shooting today?" Beck: Really? You're someone who would ask to do a re-shoot, not stop shoot. Seol: Exactly. Beck: To be frank, I think that's when it started. When, as an observer of the path you take as an actor, I started thinking 'What's this?' It seemed like you were going to another world.,...More
  • [INTERVIEW] Actor Seol Kyeong-gu (Part 2)

    2010/01/11, Source,
    Actor Seol Kyeong-gu [Beck Una/10Asia] Beck Una (Beck): And that is when you decided to take the civil service examination. Seol Kyeong-gu (Seol): Haha. Let me explain that to you. I was dying to leave the Hanyang Repertory. I'd already graduated but that place was an extension of school while I wanted to meet a larger variety of people. I didn't think they'd let me go for no reason so I lied that I'm going to take the civil service exam. (laugh) But what's so spontaneous about me is that although I had left because I didn't like it, I didn't have anything to do right away. And I needed money but I didn't want to ask my parents for it so I ended up asking a senior of mine to give me a part-time job putting up posters. The interesting thing is that I ended up staying in the industry. Of course, if I had really taken off, I might have ended up becoming human trash. (laugh) Anyway, I had been at the job for about a month and a half? I was suddenly asked if I would want to take part in the musical "Line 1". Mr. Kim Min-ki had seen me about, putting up the posters and asked me if I would want to take part thinking that I'm hardworking. That had been my audition for it. Me and actors from all walks of life with all sorts of experience rehearsed for three months and wow, it was so much fun. That was the start of "Line 1". It also did very well. Before I took on film "Girls' Night Out", I was making two million won per month and drove a Sephia. (laugh) But after "Line 1", I had no work at all. That's when scenarist Lee Seon-mi, who used to do plays, recommended me to writer Jeong Seong-joo. And that is how I got to become part of the cast for morning TV series "Sisters". I think I'm a very person when it comes to human relationships. Beck: Did you not think of taking on dramas after "Sisters"? Seol: Why wouldn't I have? I was also asked to quite a lot. Not official auditions but one-on-one. But you know how you get glanced at from head to toe? I really hated the look they gave me when they do that. So after "Girls' Night Out" and then "Rainbow Trout", a man called Lee Chang-dong called me. Beck: After he watched "Girls' Night Out"?,...More
  • [INTERVIEW] Actor Seol Kyeong-gu (Part 3)

    2010/01/11, Source,
    Actor Seol Kyeong-gu [Beck Una/10Asia] Beck Una (Beck): "Haeundae" is actually on weird coordinates in terms of your filmography. In comparison to your past films which had a single main character, "Haeundae" was a film which didn't necessarily need you to be part of. On top of that, director Yoon JK is known for creating commercial films. So I've been curious to know how you got to work on this film. Seol: I was once asked which director I work best with. To that I answered, "None of them". I make things work. "Haeundae" seemed like a movie calling for trouble. Like it would become a massive hit or flop horribly. Director Yoon may seem smart and clever on the outside but he seemed innocent in my eyes. I didn't see any murkiness in his eyes. And I am great with directors. Ryoo Seung-beom was surprised at me while shooting "No Mercy". He said I listen to well to the director. But what would I do? I'm not the director. The actor should listen. Of course, it gets annoying when my actions become limited. It's tough when the director limits my actions within the camera's angle. As long as I'm not trapped inside an angle, I can listen to what the director wants. Beck: I felt from interviews that you were a hard time especially while shooting "Voice of Murderer" -- that you were feeling lonely. Seol: I was having a hard time personally. And it peaked during the times I shot "Cruel Winter Blues" and "Venus and Mars". To an extent I felt bad for my manager. I'm usually not the type that lets my personal life interfere with my work. But I felt that I failed to cut off my emotions in front of the camera during those days. Couldn't hide it in the expression -- it would all show. I feel very bad for director Han Ji-seung and actress Kim Tae-hee. I really was at my worst during "Venus and Mars"! The phrase I used often back then was that I had hit rock bottom. But I feel much more at ease after hitting rock bottom. The phrase I use most often nowadays is to 'go with the flow'. In a way, I might be even more bold than I used to be. (laugh),...More

    "No Mercy" - Can you have mercy on the film's ending? Actors Seol Kyeong-gu (left) and Ryoo Seung-beom in "No Mercy" [Cinema Service] A chopped-up body of a young woman is found at the mouth of the Keum River. Korea's top forensic investigator Kang Min-ho (played by Seol Kyeong-gu) is brought in to look into the cruel, horrendous crime method. His medical advice and detective Min Seo-young's (played by Han Hye-jin) deduction lead to the arrest of a prime suspect -- an environmental activist named Lee Sung-ho (played by Ryoo Seung-beom). Lee's confession wraps up the first part of the movie but this is where the real story of film "No Mercy" begins. Lee Sung-ho, who has kidnapped Kang Min-ho's daughter, demands that Kang prove his innocence. During the process of carrying out Lee's orders, Kang finds the connection between Lee and a criminal case for which he was a witness years ago.,...More
  • Actors save lives on set of TV series "Jejoongwon"

    2010/01/06, Source,
    SBS TV series "Jejoongwon" is set during the latter era of the Joseon Dynasty -- a time period never before handled in a Korean drama. It also revolves around Jejoongwon which is the first hospital in South Korea's history to use Western medicine. These elements topped with the collaboration of its scenarist Lee Ki-won, writer of MBC's hit medical series "White Tower", and producer Hong Chang-wook, who garnered a strong fanbase through his SBS drama "The Scale of Providence", leaves little space for hasty presumptions. 10Asia visited the set of "Jejoongwon" a week ahead of its premiere to get a closer look and a better understanding of the medical-historical drama. Actors Sean Richard and Park Yong-woo act out a scene for SBS TV series "Jejoongwon" on set at the broadcaster's studio in Ilsan, Gyeonggi Province of South Korea on December 30, 2009. [Chae Ki-won/10Asia] A blond man sits at the door of a woman's room. He has an unidentifiable hose-like object stuck in one of his ears. A man sitting next to him says, "A tenth of 30 centimeters down from the neck, then another tenth of 30 centimeters to the left". That is when the woman sitting on the other side of the door starts moving. She places her hand, holding a stethoscope, to the chest of another woman whose jacket is undone. When the woman places the stethoscope to the other woman in accordance with the Korean man's directions, the blond man from the United States gives his diagnose of the patient's presumed illness. This sight where three people -- American and Korean, male and female -- cling to this single lady brought up in a good family, helps us predict what "Jejoongwon" will show its viewers. Such a scene is from times when a married woman from a good family would get beaten up by her husband for reading a book. Yoo Suk-ran (played by Han Hye-jin), who learns English and medicine, plays the friend of such a woman in the drama and will remark, "The King himself said discrimination no longer exists regarding status", although the world has yet to accept freedom of status. The same situation will apply to foreigner Allen (Sean Richard) who has come from the U.S. to spread Western medicine and Hwang Jung (Park Yong-woo) who learns medicine from Allen whilst concealing the he is actually of low status with his occupation as a butcher. That is how "Jejoongwon", through a single scene, portrayed the medicine, the time period and the way people live during such times.,...More

    2009/12/30, Source,
    Actor Ryoo Seung-beom (29) has been building a considerable filmography for the last 10 years. It includes various genres from noir to comedy, unknown short films, animation voice work, and impressive works in which he was acting as a special guest. It also includes director Lee Moo-young's "Everlasting Husband" which could be considered Ryoo's first romantic movie, the original cartoon of Kang Pool "29 Years" which could not be filmed to completion, and the omnibus movie "Mankind Fall Report" which was filmed but never released. Ryoo Seung-beom, who was interviewed on Dec. 28 in a cafe located in Kangnam, expressed that this whole work is a "process". Ryoo said, " I choose a work based on the impression I get from it. I will probably be able to tell if the work has outstanding artistic merit only on my dying day, or I may never know about that. I always consider every role and am upset when the role does not go well. However, every step is a part of the process". "No Mercy", which will open soon, is also a part of the process, as well as one of Ryoo's inflection-painted works.,...More

[Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] Q: This film garnered interest because of the acting standoff between Seol Kyeong-gu and Ryoo Seung-beom more than anything. How would you evaluate each other's acting? Seol Kyeong-gu (Seol): The characters we each played were like water and oil -- they never become involved with each other. That's why we both spent a lot of time consumed in our own thoughts. Our roles were completely cut off from each other so after wrapping up shooting of "No Mercy", we said that next time we should try appearing in a film where we communicate well. Ryoo Seung-beom (Ryoo): I saw the movie for the first time today. And I know it sounds cheesy to say this here but I thanked Seol after seeing the movie. You may call it a standoff but acting isn't like ping pong so I worried a lot on set. I was worried what the final product would look like but I think the film speaks for itself.
