[HanCinema's Film News] New Korean Films Inbound...

2013/08/10 | 4615 views | Permalink

K-Films Coming Soon:

★★★★ "Hide and Seek": A successful businessman tries to puzzle out the mystery behind his brother's disappearance. (08/14)

★★★★ "The Flu": A deadly airborne virus that kills within thirty-six hours hits Korea, spreading mass panic and disorder throughout. (08/15)

Title: "Hide and Seek"

Genre: Thriller

Release Date: 2013/08/14

Director: Hu Jung

Stars: Son Hyun-joo, Moon Jung-hee, Jun Mi-sun

The Short & Sweet: A successful businessman tries to puzzle out the mystery behind his brother's disappearance.

Hu Jang's "Hide and Seek" is a domestic thriller that follows Sung-soo on his way to tracking down his missing brother. The trailer for this one looks intriguing, and Son Hyun-joo looks well cast in this eerie piece. The film marks the drama/movie star's second film this year, as he previously played Tae-won in Jang Cheol-soo's "Secretly and Greatly" (6.9 million admissions). The film is coming out during a very competitive time. Last week "Snowpiercer" and "The Terror Live" (claiming 2.2 and 1.1 millions admissions respectfully) were released and will mostly likely continue to dominate proceedings. Hu's film will also be released with Kim Seong-su's disaster flick "The Flu", and to a host of foreign films that will, if they don't feature, absorb a fair percentage of the sales. Still, "Hide and Seek" looks enticing, and generally fits the bill as part of all the thriller/dramas we are seeing in Korea films this month.

★★★★

Title: "The Flu"

Genre: Drama, Thriller

Release Date: 2013/08/15

Director: Kim Seong-su ("Please Teach Me English", "Musa")

Stars: Jang Hyuk, Soo Ae, Park Min-ha

The Short & Sweet: A deadly airborne virus that kills within thirty-six hours hits Korea, spreading mass panic and disorder.

Director/screenwriter Kim Seong-su taps into a social paranoia with this one as panic and disorder sweeps over the city. Iconic images of people wearing facial masks litter the trailer, as Korea's citizens appear to resemble more zombies than victims. The teaser paints a dark and desolate picture of what would happen if a deadly flu virus broke out with no hope of containment. It is a fitting premise that is sure to attract quite some attention, but as mentioned with "Hide and Seek", Kim Seong-su's third feature will be up against some strong and settled competition at the ticket stands.

★★★★
