통증 (Tong-jeung)

Directed by Kwak Gyeong-taek (곽경택)

Screenplay by

Drama Melodrama Romance

104min | Release date in South Korea :

Synopsis
Renowned as a natural-born storyteller, star webcomic illustrator Kang Pool’s body of work has long provided a source of fresh material for the film industry. “Painted” is the latest in a long line of works that have gone from cartoon to screen, including “Love Story” (2004), “BA:BO” (2008), “A.P.T” (2006), “29 Years” (2009, cancelled) and “Late Blossom” (2011).
After losing his family when he was young, Nam-soon (Kwon Sang-woo) feels no pain. He cannot feel physical pain and is emotionally barren until he meets Dong-hyun (Jeong Ryeo-won), who calls herself a vampire because she suffers from hemophilia. Unlike Dong-hyun, when Nam-soon is injured, she bleeds from even the smallest wound. As the two grow closer, Dong-hyun suddenly begins to lose his lifelong insensitivity to pain and the hurt of a lifetime washes over him.
Kwon Sang-woo is known for his role in the 2010 war movie “71-Into the Fire” and the 2003 comedy “My Tutor Friend.” Jeong Ryeo-won rose to fame in the TV soap opera “My Name is Kim Sam-soon” in 2005. The film is directed by Kwang Gyeong-taek, who is best known for the 2001 hit “Friend.”

  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Jeong Ryeo-won

    2014/05/24,
    Actors exist in all types of form and relation to their art. There are stars who do not necessarily possess skills and/or talent, there are those who go for more arthouse projects, those who put more effort into their acting, those who go for promoting their persona and more. Jeong Ryeo-won's career is all about growth. Having gone from a singer in the now disbanded group 'Chakra' to a full time actress, which she has been for the last 12 years, Jeong has been through the process a lot of idols-to-actors do. Some actors show potential and achieve great performances from their debut. Some need to develop the skills to match their talent in time. Jeong seems to belong more in the latter category,...More
  • [HanCinema's Drama Review] "You're Surrounded" Episode 1

    2014/05/08,
    "You're Surrounded" started off strong, boasting of a great child cast, a fast-paced opening, and a quick, breezy introduction of all the main characters. There were two general moods: humorous, and dark. While both were well set as isolated scenes, the combination was a bit incongruous. The four rookies in the present have had a brief introduction, but not much else,...More

Kwon is anticipated to star as a detective novel fanatic who later becomes embroiled in a real-life murder case,...More
  • Using webtoons as source for movies can be double-edged sword

    2013/12/06, Source,
    In recent years, the story lines of popular webtoons, or web cartoon series published online, have been the to-go choice for filmmakers when they find themselves short of fresh material to put on the big screen. However, using webtoons as a major source of films is considered a double-edged sword. The films are easy to publicize, but they have a high risk of becoming box-office failures if they can't provide viewers with something more than the original webtoon. A webtoon titled "A.P.T", written by first-generation webtoonist Kang Pool, was the first to be made into a horror movie of the same name, starring Ko So-young as the lead actress in 2006,...More
