  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Stoker" and the Bloodline Boiling Point

    In the Spotlight this Week: "Stoker" (2013) by Park Chan-wook... Earlier this year we saw Kim Jee-woon shoot Arnold in the desert in "The Last Stand", an outsourced mercy killing that was so self-reflexive it was virtually suicide. Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" has only been out in Korea for a couple weeks now, but already it is in the black and has the international community drooling in anticipation. In the spotlight this week, however, is Park Chan-wook's "Stoker" – a sharply crafted psychological thriller that hates the smell of pastiche on its clothes, and prefers not to leave the house if at all possible. If these three English-language debuts were family, Park's creation would be a disturbing and twitchy introvert, the bad-blooded black sheep that keeps little secrets and sins silently. Made with less than a third of the budget its contemporaries enjoyed, "Stoker" is a modestly priced masterpiece that runs disturbingly deep,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.07.19 ~ 2013.07.21

    "The Best Never Rest" is the slogan for this week's number one film "RED 2", a sequel to the popular 2010 action comedy. Director Dean Parisot's film claimed the lion's share of the ticket sales over the weekend (832,276), but, unlike previous weeks this month, the admissions were a little more evenly distributed. Last week Kim Yong-hwa's "Mr. Go" was released and, despite a slow start for Korea's first stereoscopic 3D effort, the film eventually managed over 500,000 admissions (19.8%). "Mr. Go" came close to sneaking past Jo Eui-seok and Kim Byeong-seo's "Cold Eyes" (21.3% with 576, 360 admissions) in second, an effort that would've forced "Cold Eyes" to step back from the position it fought so hard for last weekend,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.06.28 ~ 2013.06.30

    Marc Forster's "World War Z" continues its reign at the top of the Korean box office. Forster's post-apocalyptic horror cleared 933,807 (46%) admissions during its second weekend appearance, giving Brad Pitt's latest 3.1M admissions to take to the bank. The film cost $190M to produce and has already comfortably grossed $259M worldwide ($124M of which came from its own U.S. screenings). Last week the film easily dislodged Jang Cheol-soo's "Secretly and Greatly" at the top, pulling in over 800,000 tickets more than Jang's highly successful second feature. This week the Korean showing was a little limp, with only "Secretly and Greatly" and Kim Yong-gyoon's "Killer Toon" making the grade. Summertime is horror time in Korea, and with that comes Kim's new film "Killer Toon" starring Lee Si-yeong, Eom Gi-joon and Kim Hyeon-woo. The film opened its account with 390,729 (18.6%) admissions and follows the webcomic creator Ji-yoon (played by Lee Si-yeong),...More

  • Actress Kim Hye-soo's movie picks

    2011/01/07, Source,
    Actress Kim Hye-soo [10Asia] Gender is not the only thing that sets the word 'actress' apart from 'actor'. The word 'actress' alone carries layers of meaning that could refer as one to be envied, a seemingly unreachable glory and perhaps a tragic personal story or two hidden within. Living as an actress in Korea means carrying both a light and darkness inside that are enough to invoke curiosity. And actress Kim Hye-soo fits this category perfectly, as if the term was coined for her alone. Her glamorous body and a confident attitude are some of the phrases we often use to describe Kim's aura. But above all, the prowess she accumulated through her acting career has helped to solidify her position as a true actress,...More

Your reviews
I loved this creepy horror film, and i dont know why! by brooks

y wife watched this with me and deducted that a women had written the script. She decided that only one who has an obsession with shoes could fully understand the struggle of all the people in this movie for the right to posses or be possesed by the Red Shoes. I did not give it a full 10 because of the slightly confusing ending. Ive read that there is a directors cut which clears up that confusion.
