  • 'Cloud Altas' star talks Hollywood experience

    2012/10/31, Source,
    Actress Bae Doona appears in a scene from "Cloud Atlas". Wide Screen Media Group rated Bae as "the light the movie was looking for". Provided by Warner Bros LOS ANGELES - Bae Doona has played a host of unconventional roles. From a quirky lady who chases a dog serial killer in the film "A Higher Animal" (2000) to a sex doll that develops a consciousness and falls in love in "Air Doll" (2009), the model-turned-actress has proven her natural talents time and again. After working with famed directors Hirokazu Koreeda, Bong Joon-ho and Park Chan-wook, Bae found herself in Hollywood alongside American directors Andy and Lana Wachowski of "The Matrix" fame and German director Tom Tykwer,...More
  • (42) Park Chan-wook: Director with blood-coated lens

    2012/07/04, Source,
    Director Park Chan-wook, left, waves as he is awarded with actor Choi Min-shik for the grand prix for the film "Old Boy" during the award ceremony of the 57th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes on May 24, 2004. / Korea Times file By Andrew Salmon Tension and violence sell, but this may not be apparent to the vast majority of fans of "hallyu", the much-discussed "Korean Wave" of pop culture that has swept outward from the shores of the peninsula since, roughly, the turn of the millennium. The two standout genres of hallyu, in sales terms, are clearly K-pop and K-soaps. Of the former, Korean management companies have come up with a winning formula, churning out a range of cute, well-trained and above all wholesome boy- and girl-bands whose appeal is very different from the rebellious, opinionated, drug-spattered figures who stagger across the stage of Western rock 'n roll. Soap is similarly sugar-coated: Most dramas are centered upon pretty boys and pretty girls in pretty clothes and pretty houses/landscapes engaging in genteel, "no-sex-please-we're-Korean" romances,...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
  • CJ Entertainment America to release Korean Movie on DVDs and Blu-rays in the USA

    2012/06/08,
    If the last time you checked, Korean filmmaking was all about horror ... It may be time to check again! While pan-Asian filmmakers still know how to produce a superior scarefest (and do!), American movie-goers – and critics – are also taking note of the regions' dramas, romantic fare, comedies and music. G&A is now working with CJ Entertainment America, the U.S. arm of Asia's premier entertainment company and Korea's #1 filmmaker and distributor, CJ Entertainment & Media (CJ E&M). Since 1995, CJ E&M has provided original, award-winning content; is a prominent investor in entertainment co-ventures with such U.S. companies as 1492 Pictures, DreamWorks and IMAX; and has been a key force in popularizing Korean and Pan-Asian cinema around the world,...More
