  • [Guest Post] Daniel Tudor on Korean cinema

    2012/11/09, Source,
    I'm not a true cinephile by any stretch of the imagination. I've always been the archetypal casual fan, who knows what he likes, but doesn't really like it enough to remember every line of the script. People ask, "have you seen [insert name of genius film here]?" and I honestly reply "yeah, I saw it a few years back, it was great". But then I'll be unable to back that up with any enlightened commentary on that scene with the uninterrupted shot that goes all the way around the bar and back again when all the mobsters are being introduced. Or even who was in it, sometimes. But when I first moved to Seoul in 2004, Korean cinema got to me. In some way it was a stroke of luck to be here while a golden era was still in swing,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] The Journals of Musan

    2012/07/15,
    Film: "The Journals of Musan" Director: Park Jung-bum (Assistant director to Lee Chang-dong in "Poetry") Stars: Park Jung-bum, Jin Yong-wook, Kang Eun-jin and Park Young-Duk Review Score: 8/10 Also try: "Poetry", "Poongsan", or "Peppermint Candy" With Lee Chang-dong as his cinematic mentor, Park Jung-bum, his assistant director for the internationally acclaimed melodrama "Poetry", burst out the gates in 2010 with his directorial debut "The Journals of Musan". It's a tragic and personal story of Park's that was inspired by his real-world relationship with his troubled friend; a North Korean defector whose heartfelt personal struggle is meaningfully woven in to each frame by Park's intense relationship to the piece,...More
  • [HanCinema's Interview Corner] Ten Questions for the KOREAN CINEPHILE

    2012/06/30,
    Your website, Modern Korean Cinema, has been up since mid-2010, how did you come to discover Korean cinema and what was it about Korea's film industry that really cemented your passion for it? My first exposure to Korean cinema came long before the inception of MKC and it's kind of a funny story (at least I think it is)! When I was in boarding school in Dublin (high school) we were studying Macbeth and as a nascent cinephile I wanted to seek classic filmed versions of Shakespeare's work, first came Polanski's, then Orson Welles' version but soon I came across Kurosawa's "Throne of Blood" (1957) and fell in love with it. Thus began my discovery of Japanese cinema and one day I was in my local media retail store in Switzerland when I came across a striking DVD in the Asian section. I thought it might have been something like a Takashi Miike film but it turned out to be none other than "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance" (2002) and... I hated it, it made me furious. But I couldn't stop thinking about it and a week later I forced my self to watch it again and my whole world changed. My next film was Lee Chang-dong's "Peppermint Candy" (2000) and it's safe to say that the quality and social engagement of those works resulted in my becoming deeply attached to Korean cinema,...More
