Photographs of Korean actor Jang Dong-gun visiting Laos in March were unveiled today.

The documentary features Jang visiting local schools in the country to provide free meals for its students -- their province was hit by a Typhoon last September causing a flood to ruin the country's crops,...More
must confess I have extreme feelings about this one - both negative and positive.
Positive ofcourse stands for amazing Jang Dong-Gun - this doesn't need much of explanation I assume. The pictures and score, scenography and montage does the rest.
Unfortunaletty the whole hollocaust-vengeance plot didn't really stroke me and reminded me too much of Die Hard trilogy, mad terrorist set to annihillate the world because once he was hurt, so sad...Anyways! That doesn't change the fact of the real plastic input and actors' effort in the whole project - this title is definitelly worth seeing too! But don't expect much from the script.
I tend to suspect some more original flicks in asian cinematography - this branch shows us how much is there to seek more that the european / u.s. movie industry fears to stand for.
Taephoong only closes a bit to Brucheimers blockbusters, fortunatelly filling it with more asian emotions and expressions, picture halts and wonderful score. I was expecting this movie for months but I must confess it just couldn't whack me off my feet. It is "only" very good with the performance and the whole production measures undertook to make it a great plastic action story, I think it's enough...
yphoon is a great globe trotting race against the clock thriller where in a lot of S. Korean movies you get to actually see both sides of the issues. By that i mean why the bad guy, played by Jang Dong gun, Actually gets to the point of where he is at. And why the good guy gets to where he is. Though slightly melodramatic in some parts the movie is extremly entertaining.
A perfectly made movie!!! It succesfully
depicts a tragedy, revenge, family love,
and mercy. The conflict of politic added
makes the plot more alive. I love almost
all scenes since they have strong
emotions in it. My favourite are:1) when
Jang Dong Gun me
