With the Korean Peninsula under Japanese rule in 1930s, many Koreans flock to Manchuria for refuge. Some become bandits, some train robbers and yet others bounty hunters. While the Weird, a notorious train robber, is stealing from a Japanese train crossing the Manchurian plains, he discovers a treasure map. But the map is also sought after by the Bad, a merciless gang leader. Coincidentally, the Good, a bounty hunter, is on the train, and he is after the Bad. The three engage in a spectacular chase with the Japanese Army, the Korean independence fighters, and the Chinese bandits all looking to get their hands on the prized map.

  • All Eyes on Korea: consistent investment in the performing arts brings its rewards

    2012/09/09, Source,
    The London 2012 Olympics was around a decade in the making: preparation of the bid, building the venue itself and putting in place the infrastructure required to run a successful games. And for the last couple of years of that preparation time, a separate team of hard-working organisers from the Korean Ministry of Culture Sports and Tourism were planning their own spectacle. Led from the Korean Cultural Centre in London (KCCUK), the plan was to showcase the best of Korean culture to the huge numbers of international visitors who would be in London for the Games. Preparation and persistence builds relations with audiences and venues Taking the theme of the five Olympic rings as a starting point, and linking in with the traditional Korean five directions, five elements and five colours, the event was branded in Korean 오색찬란!!, loosely translated as "Five Colours Shining Bright!". For the consumption of Londoners the festival was branded All Eyes on Korea – a one hundred day festival of K-everything: music, art and literature, film, food and lectures. Posters with colourful Ks could be found across the Underground network publicising the initiative in a memorable way. One of London's famous red Routemaster buses was even pressed into service to promote the initiative. A London bus announced the start of the festival (photo courtesy of KCCUK). Planning for All Eyes on Korea had started at least two years beforehand, ambition fuelled by a good relationship with London's City Hall. This had been getting stronger over the years with Korea's participation in the Mayor's Thames Festival, a two-day open air festival of culture held on the banks of the Thames to mark the end of summer (conveniently for Koreans, at Chuseok time), in which the Korean Village has become an anchor tenant. This status reflects the investment the KCCUK has consistently made in the Festival each year, building upon percussion group Dulsori's initial private sector initiative in 2007, and introducing new ideas such as participation in the Rivers of the World project. Similarly the KCCUK's experience in dealing with London's top artistic venues such as the Barbican and the South Bank Centre has undoubtedly been of assistance in pulling together such a demanding and varied programme of events. And the promotion of Korean cultural events over the years, especially for example with the high-profile appearance of three big-ticket Korean acts in the Edinburgh International Festival last year (the Seoul Philharmonic, AHN Eun-mi's dance company and OH Tae-seok's theatre company), has undoubtedly helped in building and educating an audience ready for more,...More
