High school is horror

2008/07/23 | 728 views | Permalink | Source

Somewhat late and on its own, but August 7 will finally welcome a Korean horror film to the summer entertainment circuit. The title "Death Bell" ("Gosa") stands for midterms in Korean. The horror title will turn the figurative blood, sweat, and tears of exams into palpable blood, sweat, and tears on cinema screens.

Summer horror films are traditionally the playground for new talent, and "Death Bell" ("Gosa")will mark the feature film debut of Director Chang. He filmed television actress Yoon Jung-hee-I and female singer Nam Gyu-ri alongside veteran actor Lee Beom-soo (Superstar Mr. Gam/Superstar Gamsayong), and young actor Kim Bum of the popular television drama "Coffee Prince".

Korean horror films are this summer mostly replaced with ambitious big budget projects. "Death Bell" ("Gosa") is the only Korean horror title lined-up in the running year's summer.

Directing brother's Jeong Beom-sik, and Jeong Sik made their name internationally last year with festival favourite "Epitaph" (Gidam), and "Family Ties" ("The Birth of a Family" - Gajeokui Tansaeng) renowned director Kim Tae-yong made the horror film "Memento Mori "(Yeogogwedam Doobeonjjae Iyagi) back in 1999.
