So-dan is a girl bored with her tedious life, but she manages to find some distraction in the run-down Three Corners Theater. Initially she goes into the building as a way of finding her grandmother, who is said to have gone into the theater and never came out. She simply vanished.

  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Park Joon-myeon and Lee Mi-do

    As lovely as it would be to live in a world where popular entertainment is all about representation and inclusion, this is sadly not the case. Presentation matters in any industry where popularity and glamour play a part. Looks and marketability matter. Depending on the specific industry or type of work, it can sometimes be all that matters. We live in a world where gender inequality is also a reality. Men can still lead works if not strictly within the category most popular in terms of visual appeal,...More
  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Jo Hee-bong

    Stardom is a tricky thing in any big industry. Depending on where it places its importance, there are different requirements for creating a star. Some actors work hard to get there, some go by popularity alone and without their skills necessarily being worth their success. But as important as all types of stars are, they would not matter without all of the supporting actors that enrich the world of each work. Jo Hee-bong is one of those actors,...More

Cheon Ho-jin is one such actor who has also done it successfully,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Ghost Theater"

Jeon Gye-soo ('Love Fiction') and 'The Ghost Theater' bring horror musicals to the big screen, with enjoyable results,...More

    Korean movie of the week "Love Fiction" (2011) Directed by Jeon Gye-soo With Ha Jeong-woo, Kong Hyo-jin, Jo Hee-bong, Lee Byeong-joon, Ji Jin-hee, Yoo In-na,... Synopsis Many male audiences who saw 500 Days of Summer must have felt that Summer, who was the dominant figure in the relationship, as a cold-hearted woman. Love Fiction is the opposite, a romantic comedy sticking strictly to the man's view of the relationship. An unknown novelist Ju-wol (Ha Jeong-woo) falls in love at first sight with Hee-jin (Kong Hyo-jin) who works at a film importing company when the two meet at a book expo,...More
