  • Battlefield film begins at war's end

    2011/07/21, Source,
    'There should be a wider variety of stories about North and South Korea if we want a better future for both. And there shouldn't be a limit on subject matter'. Director Jang Hoon is back with his third film, an epic about the Korean War called "The Front Line" that has already earned rave reviews. [JoongAng Ilbo] With his low-budget directorial debut, "Rough Cut" (2008), filmmaker Jang Hoon engraved his name in the minds of moviegoers and critics alike. His second project, "Secret Reunion" (2010), which deals with the friendship between a North Korean spy and a South Korean counterspy, drew 5.5 million and proved he was immune to the sophomore slump. Now, the 36-year-old filmmaker has returned with the blockbuster war movie "The Front Line". The film, which was released on Wednesday at theaters nationwide, was daunting for Jang in many ways, not least because he was concerned about the potential for distorting the history of the war. His second challenge was raising the 10.1 billion won ($9.5 million) budget, which was nearly double the cost of his first film,...More
  • 'Front' brings harrowing views of war

    Actors Lee Je-hoon, left, and Goh Soo in a scene from the Korean War (1950-53) film "The Front Line" By Lee  Hyo-won It's another Korean War (1950-53) film, made on a hefty budget - at least for local standards - and featuring an A-list cast. The viewer, already having seen such action-packed, homespun tearjerkers celebrating humanist values as "Taegukgi" and "71-Into the Fire" or any one of those Hollywood World War II blockbusters, can easily doubt whether Jang Hoon's upcoming "The Front Line" could bring something new,...More

    2011/07/06, Source,
    Actor Ko Chang-seok is in a tight spot with the two 10 billion won movies with him in it are being released only a day apart. He is in "The Front Line" releasing on the 20th and "Quick" coming out on the 21st. The two movies started shooting almost at the same time since the end of last year until the beginning of this year but they were set to be released in the summer and in Chuseok. Primarily meant for Chuseok, "Quick" has been reset to be released this summer as the materials of the movie like the action was judged to be more fit for the summer by the production. As well, "The Front Line" was to be released in time for the June 25th War Memorial day but was delayed in filming, therefore only being released in the summer.,...More
  • 'The Front Line' spotlights the Forgotten War

    2011/06/16, Source,
    By Park Sung-hee Jang Hoon, who directed the hit inter-Korean drama "Secret Reunion", has returned with another film involving the two Koreas. "The Front Line" takes viewers back to the Korean War (1950-53), which is largely known as the Forgotten War, and looks into parts of the conflict that have slipped into oblivion. Jang teamed up with a seasoned scriptwriter Park Sang-yeon for the 10 billion-won project. "Even Koreans remember only about six months of the Korean War", scriptwriter Park told reporters Tuesday in Seoul. "But the actual conflict went on for another 30 months. We wanted to tell the forgotten parts of the Forgotten War",...More
