  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.04.11 ~ 2014.04.13

    "The Winter Soldier" stands his ground… Marvel's second instalment of their "Captain America" series came out again on top this past weekend, pulling in additional 470,782 admissions (33.6%) to advance its total tally now to 3.3M.

    Korean actresses have changed. They are giving up pretending to be pretty, weak and ingenuous. Kim Seon-ah, model-turned actress who is 170 centimeters (near six feet) tall plays the role of a woman paralyzed from waist down in the movie "The Five" that will be released Thursday. Instead of showing off her slim legs, she rides an electric wheelchair with both legs tied up. A woman who lost her husband and daughter by a murderer, she is a vengeful person. To show such emotions, Kim has disheveled hair, and her face is bruised since she fights with the murderer. Jeon Do-yeon in "Way Back Home" plays a woman who is falsely accused of carrying drugs and is locked up in a jail in a foreign country. She doesn`t give off charm of a femme fatal. Ha Ji-won performs a swordsmanship action at "Chosun`s Angels" that will be released in early next year,...More
