  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Lee Han-wi

    What introduction can one really give an actor like Lee Han-wi? A better question would be, who does not know Lee Han-wi. For anyone with even entry-level experience with South Korean cinema and drama, Lee is a face they have seen at least once. He has been in every type of work and role imaginable and even if not in a major one, he is memorable every single time. With a career of three decades and counting, Lee Han-wi is an entertaining and beloved veteran,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Tower"

    Disaster movies are not really a huge genre in Korea. With budget and scale being an issue for those more into the action than the human element and those focusing on the human element limiting their destruction, it is a tricky type of film to pull off. "The Tower" is definitely in the former category of going for big visuals, big dangers, big everything. At the end of the day though, it offers more style than substance,...More
  • Pirate's life for Son Ye-jin

    2014/08/05, Source,
    Actress Son Ye-jin has taken on a new challenge in "Pirates", which hits local theaters tomorrow, by appearing in an action movie for the first time. Although action is its predominant genre, the period film also veers toward comedy, which gives it a lighter and more approachable edge. The fictional story is based on the fact that the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) didn't have a state seal for close to a decade after the country's establishment. Scriptwriter Cheon Seong-il, known for the KBS drama "The Slave Hunters", pitted pirates and mountain bandits against each other on a hunt for the missing seal,...More
  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Kim Seong-oh

    The elusive stardom being what it is and standards to reach it being what they are, it is often easy to see why a certain actor does not reach that level. Depending on the industry, the issue can be anything from skills to appearance and popularity. Sometimes, however, even those who seemingly have enough to make better progress during their career lack that breakthrough role or a hand in showing what they can do. One actor who is slowly climbing up that ladder to the spotlight is Kim Seong-oh. Kim started in theater in 2000 and has since worked his way through movies and dramas, initially taking very small roles as a cameo or extra. Kim has therefore worked as characters who barely had much presence or even a name. It was with 2010's "Secret Garden" and also 'The Man From Nowhere' that Kim got more attention in both cinema and the drama industry. His likable Assistant Kim in the former and heartless criminal Jong-seok in the latter not only gave him more screen time, but were also very different types of roles, giving a two-in-one boost to his career within the same year,...More
