  • Son Ye-jin, Shin Hyeon-joon and Kang Je-gyu's special gathering

    2016/01/12, Source,
    "Bad Guys Always Die" actor and actress Shin Hyeon-joon and Son Ye-jin and director Kang Je-gyu have something special going on. "Bad Guys Always Die" is about a group of friends who go on vacation to Jeju Island and meet Ji-yeon, a mysterious woman,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Shiri"

    In the Spotlight this Week: "Shiri" (1999) by Kang Je-gyu Kang Je-gyu's "Shiri" was a landmark feature that stands as Korea's first real blockbuster. The film sold over 6.2 million admissions during its run in 1999, an astonishing feat that broke the shackles on big-budget Korean films and represents a critical moment in Korea's film history. Kang made his debut three years before "Shiri" with "The Gingko Bed" (1996), a fantasy romantic epic that was heralded for its special effects and was also one of country's most successful films at the time. Since "Shiri", Kang has chosen to remain in the filmic fog of war, directing both the acclaimed "Taegukgi" (2004 - 11.7 million admissions) as well as the less successful "My Way" (2011 – 2.1 million). Kang may have fallen from grace somewhat with his last film "My Way" (which failed to make a profit on its $24 million production costs; the film made only $16M) and with this year's fantastical flop "Mr. Go" (which he produced), however Kang's filmography still remains an impressive one that has helped challenge and re-define the conditions and profitable potential of the once illusive Korean blockbuster,...More
  • Feature profile - My Way

    2012/02/10, Source,
    Headed for the Berlinale Panorama section, director Kang Je-gyu's "My Way"is a historic film is more ways than one. KANG Byeong-jin goes over the details. World War II film "My Way" is Kang Je-gyu's fourth film as a director, following "The Gingko Bed", "Shiri" and "Taegukgi". "Shiri" was the first Korean film to bring in over 2 million admissions in Seoul (back when nationwide figures were unavailable and the capital's statistics were used as rule-of thumb). On its release, "Taegukgi" along with "Silmido" opened the era of Korean films with admissions of 10 million and more. Even from the outside, "My Way" seems like an extension of the challenges Kang's work took on before. The film's stage spans Korea to China through the former Soviet Union to Normandy, and it stars Jang Dong-gun and Joe Odagiri, the top stars of Korea and Japan respectively. More than anything, the film's budget of about KW28 billion (US$24.8 million) is the highest ever in Korean cinema history,...More

  • Going My Way with KANG Je-gyu

    2012/01/14, Source,
    The dramatization of a true war-time story that spans years, continents, and changing friendships and enmities, "My Way" is director Kang Je-gyu's comeback after seven years. KANG Byeong-jin looks at what went into the making of the film. "My Way" deals with a true story that is practically legend. In the late 1930s, a man from Joseon ends up going to China and the Soviet Union towards Germany and finally ends up on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. Amongst the US National Archives' records of the invasion of Normandy was found a photograph of an Asian man in a German uniform at Normandy. American historian Stephen Ambrose wrote in his book "D-Day", "At the beach called Utah on the day of the invasion, Lt. Robert Brewer of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army, captured four Asians in Wehrmacht uniforms. No one could speak their language; eventually it was learned that they were Koreans",...More
  • Kang Je-gyu: 'I Devoted My Passion to 'My Way"

He led the boom of Korean movies with his hit movies such as "The Gingko Bed" (1996) and "Shiri" (1998), and his previous movie "Taegukgi" (2004) recorded the largest number of audience members, which was 11.7 million,...More
  • "I made my first album after 20 years of movie music"

    2011/03/15, Source,
    Director Lee Dong-joon is having a concert this coming 18th. For 17 years Lee Dong-joon has been making music for Korean blockbuster movies like "Shiri", "The Gingko Bed", "Green Fish", "Taegukgi" and more. His music is created by an orchestra of 80 to 100 people and at times it is grand and sometimes is delicate and soft, moving the hearts of those who hear it. Sometimes it is strong like the tango and captivates the listener's ears. Movie music takes about 8 weeks to go through editing while looking at the video. It could be from 35 songs to 50. Dramas are different. Music is made until the last episode with only 1 or 2 episodes of the highlight scenes and scripts. The same goes for musicals. There are times when imagination is mostly it.,...More
