__________
"Bang-ja Chronicles" (BANGJAJEON) is a motion picture twist to Chunhyangjeon, a classic Korean romance novel. In this new film, Kim changes its plot - in the original novel, it's a love story of Mongryong and Chunhyang, but in the film, Bangja, Mongryong's servant, joins in to make it a love triangle.

Kim Joo-hyeok plays Bangja, Ryoo Seung-beom as Mongryong and Jo Yeo-jeong as Chunhyang. The film opens on June 3.

The original novel has been adapted into movies several times, most notably as SEONG CHUNHYANG in 1961 by Shin Sang-ok. Starring Choi Eun-hee and Kim Jin-gyu as Chunhyang and Mongryong, respectively, it was one of the first full color-cinemascope Korean films. Veteran director Im Kwon-taek also made his own adaptation CHUNHYANG in 2000, starring Jo Seung-woo and Lee Hyo-jeong.

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Bedevilled": A Gorgeously Grotesque Revenge Rampage

    2014/02/15,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Jang Cheol-soo's "Bedevilled"... Jang Cheol-soo has an incredible cine-clock ticking within, a marvellous metronome that I like to imagine he has swinging and tocking above his desk as he writes and plans his work. This constant ticking then harmonises with whatever creative genius takes hold of him as puts pen to paper. A film like Jang's debut film "Bedevilled" is the result of such a ritual; a gorgeously grotesque genre film that hypnotises and horrifies with the percussive precision of a mad watchmaker come autistic composer. The film ebbs and flows like a daring dream; one that's sweet and surreal, but whose intent is deranged and two-faced, mixing together melodrama, horror, and revenge into a compelling cinematic concoction that bubbles and boils over in the most spectacle fashion imaginable,...More

    They are Jo Yeo-jeong and Clara indeed. "Working Girl" is being sold at high costs even before the making. This is the result of the glamorous stars that stimulate the curiosities of men and women. According to the film industry, the crew of "Working Girl" has completed attracting investments for production costs under the condition of IPTV and DVD publication rights and sales. It's standard procedure but "Working Girl" investments are more than half of the production costs alone. This is definitely unusual,...More
