  • [Interview] Smash-hit films criticized for political leanings

    2015/01/20, Source,
    It only took 28 days for Korean film "Ode to My Father" to hit the 10 million admissions mark on Jan. 13. It also remained in first place at the local box office for five consecutive weeks. Millions of viewers have laughed and wept with Deok-soo, the lead character played by actor Hwang Jeong-min. As head of his family he lives through various historical events such as the Hungnam Evacuation during the 1950-53 Korean War, the government's decision to dispatch nurses and miners to Germany in the 1960s and the Vietnam War. However, some people have criticized the movie, directed by Yoon Je-kyoon, for being a right-wing film that emphasizes just one side of Korea's modern history,...More
  • 'Ode' reaches 10 million admissions

    Korean film "Ode to My Father" has become the first domestic movie to reach 10 million admissions this year, according to the Korean Film Council on Wednesday.

  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2015.01.09 ~ 2015.01.11

    Yoon's "Ode" continues uncontested… The Korean box office might not be roaring currently, quieted, perhaps, by the success of Yoon Je-kyoon's heartfelt war drama: "Ode to My Father". Since its released mid-December, "Ode to My Father" has held firm at the top of pile, and its arrival at the ten-million-views mark is dawning. The film added 1.1M stubs over the weekend, continuing its phenomenal run and pushing its total tally now to 9.6M ($69.7M). If, or rather when, it reached 10M admissions, it will become only the eleventh film in Korean film history to do so, placing it in Korea's pantheon of pictures; a hall of fame and fortune that includes such wonders as "Silmido" (the first of its kind), "Snowpiercer", "The Attorney", "The Thieves", and, more recently, "The Admiral: Roaring Currents",...More
  • [HanCinema Feature] Korea's Favourite Foreign Films of 2014

     This time last year "The Attorney" was enjoying its final weekend at the top of the Korean box office. Yang Woo-seok's potent political piece drew millions to his Song-studded story of undead civil rights and modern righteousness, but a foreign blizzard was brewing, one that would soon usher in the nation's favourite alien invader of the year. Its theme song, "Let It Go", was played, parodied, and pumped throughout the year as our Pale Blue Dot danced and dreamed of white noise and snowmen (a sobering event that one of the film's director, Jennifer Lee, recently apologised for; forgiven, not forgotten). Disney's "Frozen" hit Korea on the 16th of January, 2014, and the bruise was bad; $75.2 million in damages bad, in fact. Korea was obviously not alone here, the world had frozen over and thrown millions at this over-zealous zeitgeist qua animated anomaly,...More
