Korean movies opening today 2016/04/07 in Korea: "Insane", "Steel Flower" and "Calendar Girl"

"Insane" (2015)

Directed by Lee Cheol-ha

With Kang Ye-won, Lee Sang-yoon, Choi Jin-ho, Ji Dae-han, Kim Jong-soo, Chun Min-hee,...

"Insane" is a mystery thriller about a producer who digs into the truth of a murder disguised as a fire accident and the only survivor named Soo-ah.

"Steel Flower" (2015)

Directed by Park Suk-young

With Jeong Ha-dam,...

Each night, a homeless girl stays in abandoned houses to get by. In the winter, she leaves the cold environs of Seoul and heads to Busan, eventually finding an empty house in an abandoned part of town. She starts looking for a way to make a living, but it's difficult to find a job with no home address, no ID card, and no phone number. She ultimately does find work, but her employer takes advantage of her and ends up firing her without paying any wages. No one seems to be on her side in this harsh and abusive world. Park depicted a similar story about three homeless girls in his debut film, "Wild Flowers" (2014). While Steel Flower is in the same vein, it's more concise since there are fewer characters on which to focus. He also tries to avoid using the same stereotypical characteristics of the film's antagonists. Jeong Ha-dam, who played the youngest girl in "Wild Flowers", appears as lead in this film and leaves viewers with an intense and lasting impression. (NAM Dong-chul)

With Han Ga-yeong, Lee So-hee-II, Min Hyeok, Kwon Yeong-ho, Joo Yeon-seo,...

In my imagination, she came to me.
Jong-moo (Min Hyeok) is happy the calendar model Na-yeong (Han Ga-yeong) is there smiling for him although they can't be together. One day, the girl of his dreams moves right next door to him and Jong-moo's boring life turns into excitement. Jong-moo learns about how she suffers behind the fanciness and he puts everything he has on the line to comfort her. Na-yeong is caught between his innocence and her work. Meanwhile, Jong-moo's friend Yong-jin (Kwon Yeong-ho) dreams of a hot night with his cute girlfriend Ji-hee (Lee So-hee-II) but every time he tries he stands on the verge of death and in the end Ji-hee confesses something to him...

The two couple put their lives on the line for love.
