  • "The New World" Opens on March 22 in North America

    2013/03/21, Source,
    A remarkable gangster noir film, "The New World" (2013, Korea), opens on March 22nd. This Korean crime drama, which is influenced by Hong Kong's Infernal Affairs (remade by Hollywood as The Departed), proposes an original take on the genre. It will be released to audiences in 24 North American cities. "The New World" is about a cop who is caught between his professional duty and the challenges of an undercover mission, struggling to complete his tasks without being revealed as a mole. "The New World" features a great lineup of South Korean stars, including Choi Min-sik ("Old Boy"), who plays the head of the Police department, Lee Jeong-jae  ("The Housemaid - 2010", "The Thieves") as Lee Joong-Goo, and Hwang Jeong-min ("The Unjust", "A Bittersweet Life") who plays Jung Chung,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Taste of Money" : Tasty Money

    2013/01/19,
    Film: " The Taste of Money" 돈의 맛 (Don-eui Mat) Director:  Lim Sang-soo Stars:    Kim Kang-woo, Baek Yoon-sik, Yoon Yeo-jeong & Kim Hyo-jin Review Score:  2.5 / 5 Lim Sang-soo came back from the 2012 Cannes Film Festival bitter and dispirited as "The Taste of Money" received the lowest average rating from their panel of internal critics. This, Lim's fifth film, also struggled at the Korean box office with a mere 1,162,699 admissions as this 'spirited' sequel to his 2010 remake "The Housemaid - 2010" failed to perform both local and abroad. Last year the Korean box office was smothered with sexy thrillers and dramas, some more successful than others, leaving many cinephiles and critics to question the significance and scope of such provocative films. Lim's 2010 remake of "The Housemaid" was also met with scepticism and received a lot of public attention due to its uninhibited portrayal of the salacious and disturbing world of Korea's wealthy elite. Those who caught Lim's modern interpretation of Kim Ki-young's 1960s classic will instantly recognise the film's grand and opulent veneer as the fantastically rich play with power, money, sex, and, of course, fire.,...More
