Sector 7 (7광구)

7광구 (7-gwang-goo)

Directed by Kim Ji-hoon (김지훈)

Screenplay by

Action Adventure Science-Fiction Thriller

112min | Release date in South Korea :

Three-dimensional films have become a dime a dozen in Hollywood, but they are still untapped territory in Korea, which makes the release of “Sector 7” significant in Korean film history. And “Sector 7” is hoping to pave the way for 3-D film market in Korea.
The film depicts the crew of an oil drillship that battles a sea monster that has been transformed by a virus.
“Sector 7” is unique in that it features a female warrior as the lead, which is hard to find in most Korean films. Actress Ha Ji-won, who played a stunt woman in the drama series “Secret Garden” earlier this year, goes further than that in “Sector 7.”
To better express her character, Hae-jun, who spends most of her time at sea, Ha learned to scuba dive and got a motorcycle license.
She also did most action scenes without a stunt double.
A majority of the scenes were shot in a studio in Paju, Gyeonggi, and they were later completed with heavy computer graphics. It took five years including pre-production to complete “Sector 7.”
The actors, who had no previous experience with 3-D films, had trouble finishing each scene. The film also stars established actors Ahn Seong-gi and Oh Ji-ho as members of the drillship crew.
“Sector 7” is available with English subtitles at Myeongdong Station, Guro, Gangnam and Yongsan CGVs.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Grand Heist": Catch it When you Can!

    Film: "The Grand Heist"" 바람과 함께 사라지다 (Ba-lam-gwa Ham-gge Sa-ra-ji-da) Director: Kim Joo-ho Stars: Cha Tae-hyeon, Oh Ji-ho, Min Hyo-rin & Lee Chae-yeong Review Score: 4 / 5 Kim Joo-ho's first major feature "The Grand Heist" came into the charts last year when "The Thieves" had just hit its stride. Despite coming up against the likes Choi Dong-hoon's record-breaking hit, along with a few other money-makers both foreign and domestic, the film pulled together 4,909,937 admissions without ever being number one. That's a tally worthy of forth place in the list of highest grossing Korea films of 2012. A list led by "The Thieves" (12,983,182), followed by "Masquerade" (12,319,390), and that places Kim's heist flick almost two million behind "A Werewolf Boy" (6,654,390). The film is set during Korea's favoured Chosun period, and here the royal family have control over the production and distribution of ice. In Kim's telling ice becomes a highly sought-after commodity that represents the indulgence and decadence of the rich and powerful, as well as the hopes and needs of the weak and in need. Jo Myung-soo, a royal nobleman played by Nam Kyeong-eup, decides to put in motion plans that would give him exclusive rights and power of the ice trade. However, to do this he needs to take care of the resourceful and reckless Deok-moo (Cha Tae-hyeon), and his dutiful father, as well Dong-soo (Oh Ji-ho), a skilled and incorruptible public office who watches over the ice warehouse and its workers,...More

  • After 'Sector 7' flop, Kim Ji-hoon directed attention to detail

    2013/01/02, Source,
    "The Tower", a disaster flick that tells the story of those trapped in the high-rise Tower Sky building after a fire breaks out, has taken the top spot on domestic box office charts with more than two million viewers within just one week of its release. Many are already calling it another box office smash, following in the footsteps of other Korean films to set local records in 2012. But for the film's director, Kim Ji-hoon, the immediate success has triggered a range of emotions. It hasn't always been smooth sailing for the man behind the film, with his previous work "Sector 7" widely criticized and considered a flop. He described his feelings after the opening week of "The Tower" as "participating in a consolation match after a self-imposed jail sentence",...More
