  • Setbacks, breakthroughs define the last year

    2015/01/01, Source,
    'My Love from the Star' causes a craze in both China and Korea Actress Jeon Ji-hyeon, who played a mischievous character in the film "My Sassy Girl", and actor Kim Soo-hyeon-I, better known as the king in the TV drama "Moon Embracing the Sun", paired up for the television series "My Love from the Star", displaying chemistry that hooked viewers in China as much as Korea. The SBS drama, which ended in February, inspired Chinese fans to take on Korean trends such as enjoying chimaek (a portmanteau of chicken and beer) after watching the characters chow down on the show. Clothing worn by Jeon in the drama also sold well both here and in China,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "KUNDO: Age of the Rampant": Worthy and Weary

    In the spotlight this week: Yoon Jong-bin's "KUNDO : Age of the Rampant" Yoon Jong-bin covers an awful lot of ground in his period pastiche "KUNDO", and when the film broke the opening-day record at the box office we thought (before "The The Admiral: Roaring Currents" stormed the scene) that perhaps this jazzy Joseon epic would be one for the record books. While it is highly entertaining, and the pure scope Yoon tried to frame-up was impressive, Yoon's commitment to compression, style and staging did appear to affect the film's bottom line,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Target": Ready, Aim, Run.

    In the spotlight this week: Director Chang's "The Target"... Director Chang's sophomore feature is a rousing remake of Fred Cavayé's 2010 effort "Point Blank", a French flick that failed to break even but whose promising premise Chang jumped on (after Juhn Jai-hong walked away from the directing duties) to tell a story that seemed fit for a Korean casting.   "The Target" had some tough competition when it screened back in April. This unrated action thriller never managed to rise higher than second, and was eventually ejected from the top ten when Tom Cruise's latest sci-fi film "Edge of Tomorrow" came to town,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.09.12 ~ 2014.09.14

    "Tazza 2" keeps its roll going… "Tazza: The Hidden Card" had a fantastic week and managed to extend its lead at the top of pile. Kang Hyeong-cheol's comedy drama attracted over 540K filmgoers (26.7%) over the weekend to move its total tally now to 3.1M ($24.6M), which makes it the ninth highest-grossing Korean film of 2014 having just overtaken Director Chang's "The Target". Kang's closest competition came in the form of the American musical drama "Begin Again" and its 351K (17.1%), but otherwise the top ten remained largely unchanged except for Frank Miller's neo-noir "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" creeping in at ten,...More
